Kind of surprised I slept so well last night. I put on the fleece sheets this weekend, so with those, the electric blanket (more to pre-heat than anything) and down comforter I'm as snug as a bug in a rug at night, but I had myself in a tizzy over Case's lab results of 7.4% A1c and his ketone level of 15 mg/dL. Apparently though, the doc is more concerned about the moles/growths all over his back. This is the same doc that ID'd the nose skin cancer in about 30 seconds. When Case had that removed, they highly recommended a full body evaluation, but that was too much bother/effort/something. The specialist is supposed to call him to set an appointment, it remains to be seen if he'll follow through. It felt a little underhanded setting up a separate bank account yesterday especially when he asked if we'd have extra money for studded snow tires soon (the car has brand new all-seasons), then thought of how my maternal grandparents always had separate accounts up to my grandpa's death[...]

Another good swim.
So yesterday I went to the pool and when I looked in from the lobby at 5:40 all lanes had 2 already so I left as I don't like to circle swim.  This morning I got there earlier, and there was never a time when all 6 lanes were occupied. 
Not a leg issue, a back issue,.  No easy shot in the leg quick fix.

Swimming tonight! Feel tired today. 
Very exciting - demolition at our house begins today! (Architect is still updating drawings but contractor is ready so we decided to start the demo without the drawings as most of the work hasn't really changed, at least for the demo)

Nothing on tap for today. 4 days in a row after that. I gotta just keep running.
I hope to hear from the LBS and about the job possibility today. I really can't wait for the bike and I'm still on the fence about the job. Pros and Cons...

Need to get back in the gym - just gun shy yet of getting another headache since it has been going so well. Don't need a migraine in the machine later this week.

was supposed to start out season today with the boys. Just.not.ready. Mentally or physically. I just want to finish up the year in the run durability plan. I messaged my Coach, he gave me his blessing to start in January as I always have and cracked me up in the process. I thanked him and said PS...you get me. He replied with a photo of Tom Cruise with the words "you complete me" I snorted out loud when I saw it. It sure is great to have a wicked smart guy with a sense of humor in your corner. :D

I wish I could be that girl...you know the one. Driven, high achiever, red liner and always hungry for the next pr. But I am not that girl. Not by a long shot. I will save all that mental energy and grrrr for INSEASON when I hope to hit my goals come July 23rd.

I will do as my coach suggested and work in some ftp rides to prep mentally for the work to come, focus more on my intervals in the runs, and still run my trail for my birthday with out concern of trashing my legs f[...]

• Dr. Choy Chiropractic visit, focused on race tune up
• Deeply worked and released both quads (caused alot of sweating)
• Opened hips
• Back cracklings via reach over chest (1 each side)
• Opened hamstrings

• Said runner's knee not due to weak quads, focus on foam rolling hamstrings more and lower back along with stretches.

• Runner's knee symptoms still linger, only slightly better.
