6:40am:  Not Friday is actually my Friday!  :)  Yay.  And I'm taking Monday off as well, so a nice long-ish break from the rat race.  And because I bought the online recordings of TEDTalks, I have a bunch of stuff queued up to watch and be amazed by.
Workout of some sort this afternoon.  I needed new running shoes and after some rave reviews by a few friends, I bought a pair of Hoka One shoes.  We'll see how that goes... I've never tried them on, but here's hoping they're awesome!  They look a little like those Sketcher shoes that were (are?) popular that made you all off balance, purporting to help you lose weight ...

Not sure if anything will occur today.  Had an early meeting and the shoulder is still sore.

Visit with the PT went well yesterday.  She showed me some additional strengthening and stretching exercises, did some dry needling of my piriformis, and set me up with a program to go there 2x/week to do.  Stuff I could do on my own, of course, but going there to do it will ensure I don't slack off.  Goal is a complete return to running within 6-8 weeks, though she said it would be fine to run a little once it starts feeling better.  I'm not in a hurry.  It still hurts just walking around, so there's no sense even trying to run again until that's no longer the case.

Sitting in a Denny's charging everything we have to charge and hitting up the free wi-fi! We left the dog guarding Big Blue. Hopefully no one will wander around looking at the camper. She will scare them silly. When I get some power to my phone I''ll upload some pics of the place. Packet pickup tomorrow. Hopefully they have my changed my race to the Oly. I won't be able to inspire folks since it takes too much power from my phone :(    I'll catch up when I get back

Junk Food Challenge Day 18!
Need to make sure I eat enough with ramping up training. I had breakfast at home but by 10 am i was really hungry again. I got a pumpernickel bagel from the Bagel Stop - good thing too because I have a lunch n learn during the lunch hour and i am not schlepping my lunch in there. I'll eat afterward. 
I made several recipes from Chatelaine last week and all turned out really well
Coq au vin blanc (i have the leftovers for lunch today)
The rest were the weeknight recipes - Darren made the skillet pizza and it turned out well. :) Always nice when you try recipes and they turn out.

Yep.  I have a cold.  BLARGH!
I took Emergen-C, I've had enough orange juice to make me wonder if I was going to start peeing orange, and I got some Zicam... woke up this morning with a head full of snot, sore throat and achy joints.  UGH!  
I know we have a bunch of cold medication under the sink so I go to get myself some and yep, we have 3 whole boxes of the stuff - score!  Until I take a closer look and realize that they are ALL night-time drugs.  Sigh.  Looks like I'll be hitting up the CVS once I get to work.  Yay.  
In other news, the FIFTH attempted delivery of our entertainment unit was last night.  The events have been as follows:
1) delivered beginning of Feb. and had been dropped off the truck and is cracked in 5 or so places.  We decide to keep the piece until a replacement can be delivered. 
2) delivered the next week, missing a door & busted hinge on the other side
3) new piece brought to the h[...]
