crap ride.  got started later than i wanted.  head wind got in my head and brought with it the negative thoughts.  then the saving grace: the back tire went flat.  So i walked almost 4 miles with the bike.  Hot ride, hot walk.  I'm sure the negative drop aspect of the bike shoes provides some benefit :)

My pace was not controlled by my back. I tried to stay slower just incase but this pace is my 100% right now. Sad, but true. Glad I have a starting point.

Last night's negotiations went down to the final 15 minutes before an agreement was reached. All hands were on deck at 10:45 p.m. waiting to pull the plug on programming in 4 states when we got the all-clear. I had a feeling that might happen! It was so crazy stressful, especially with being new to the industry and new to every step of this. Even I surprised myself with my calm demeanor and how organized I was with both our national office and leading our local teams. 

Still can't believe all of the congratulations and kudos sent directly to me, even from the top guy in my region, saying how complicated all of this is and how impressed he is with how I'm handling it so new in my position (and he copied my VP). I got off the final teleconferences feeling like Veronica Corningstone in Anchorman - I NAILED IT! NAILED IT!

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase. - Martin Luther King, JR.
Saturday evening friends invited me over for dinner and to introduce me to a female friend of theirs.  Lovely woman.  Don't think she was interested.
This afternoon, my younger friends have invited me to a slip-N-slide party.  In addition to having fun, I should be careful of the left thigh.

Once through, and I took it real easy on the leg stuff to make sure I didn't pull either the ITB or inside thigh.

2014 - the year of bat-wing crazy

Well, I was going to leave BT. I was too busy training to play here...but now that I'm not training anyway, I realized that I'll miss some friends that I've made along this crazy journey. So while I'm healing up, I'm going to try to figure out a way to be multiple places at once -- my blog, Facebook, and BT (and back to Training Peaks, perhaps, once I'm actually TRAINING again). Yes, I am a bit bitter about being sidelined but I promise not to take it out on BT. :) Or my BT friends. But I may whine a little bit here and there - sorry.

So what AM I going to do? Well, it looks like I have 4-6 weeks to waste make adjustments to my lifestyle - it's time to get back on the healthy eating horse that I left behind during IM training craziness. It coincides well with back-to time...you know, back-to-school, back-to-soccer, back-to-fall schedules. Goal #1 for this forced off season = healthy eating. Also, I was planning on trying to add some core & weight training this wint[...]

A Little Run in the Valley of the Sun!
Friday morning, Mrs, and I got the wild idea that it would be fun to go to Arizona to visit some family here.   So we got on the plane early Saturday morning and are here until Tuesday.   
Got up this morning, and felt like I needed to do something so put on the running gear and headed out for a nice 5k run around the neighborhood.   Enjoyed it, and 73 degrees doesn't feel nearly as hot here with the low humidity as it does in Dallas wnen the morning humidity is in the 70 to 80 percent range!
Beautiful clear sunny morning here, really enjoyed the run.
