Run Casie, Run!

So I signed up for the triathlon as part of the emergency services games. Due to circumstances beyond the control of the organisers it was turned into a duathlon. The course was hilly. I was pretty much last after the first run (and I clocked a 4:56 km which is freakin fast for me) but steadily passed people on the bike course. And held them off in the run. That never happens.

6:18am:  It's not Friday.  That's okay, though.  I've decided to take next week off -- every few years I like to take a week and do spring cleaning type stuff at home.  And it's time; I've been feeling hemmed in and distracted at home because piles of stuff have started accumulating and such. I'm not much for cleaning or organizing, but I feel like right now I need a house devoid of clutter.  It's a mental thing.
More than that, I just need time off from work.  I've said it before -- I'm so appreciative for my job, but I'm not really feelin' it these days.  My motivation is at an all-time low, and that's seeping into other areas of my life. I need some time to recharge.
Only downside -- with my other vacations planned, that'll pretty much deplete me of days off.  I'll have just a few left and hopefully I don't get sick and need them.
6:57am:  More BTer victims team members for WLC! I'm looking forward to all my friends being along fo[...]

Why? Why is it so hard to run z2 for so long????? I felt like crap in mile 10...I had no idea how I could run harder. But when it came time, it felt better to run a bit faster.

Me no understand. I gave myself a walk break between each mile in the z3 20' to drink. I did a pit stop to change out fuel belt bottles, but did not potty or take a gu like last week. Maybe the gu should have happened and would have helped the dreaded mile 10?

Waiting for a long run that isn't so hard. Might have to wait till right before IMMT lol!

In other news, Dave had an audition for a featured extra role today...his first ever audition. It went well he thinks. It was for a film about an insane asylum, a patient. I figure being married to me almost 24 years, and co-parenting our kids he is WELL PREPARED for this role lol!

My shoulder pain yesterday grew pretty significant. Aching and throbbing, nothing sharp. Full range of motion. Syl reminded me that I had an issue before and I suddenly remembered bursitis. Trying to figure out how to deal with it and keep moving forward.

Life is too short for cheap coffee, artificial sweeteners, veneer relationships, fake hair, fake smiles, broken promises, broken hearts, or broken dreams.  Life is too short for affordable love, reasonable outcomes, or a life without passion.  Life is too short to be lived in fear, judgment, or regret.  Life is for living, from the inside out, from the outside in, on the edges of corners, in the shadows, in the light of day, naked, fully dressed, with blood and tears, with songs and laughter.
Fill each breath with love.  Open your heart, your mind, and your smile.  Life is here for living. - Bob Luckin
Trying to find a new dream.  In the mean time staying busy and trying to live life.  And express the joy in my work.  And my play.
Had a great ride last night.  Dinner with my daughter tonight.  Time to play papa.  I think she's making a decision out of fear rather than rational thinking.  Perhaps I can help her find he[...]

Good swim....especially considering that I really didn't want to get up.
Spent my lunch getting some housework done so I can spend some time on the bike after work.  Did litter boxes, folded a load of laundry & started another.....took out some trash, washed dishes.  And yes, I did eat some lunch.
Miss Thing texted me that she won an award but I don't know what for.....Something to do with her contributions to the theater and music departments in Matoaca.  Now if this produces some sort of college scholarship I will be very happy.....
Thing One broke up with the boyfriend of about 18 months in the past couple of weeks.  Since we really didn't like him all that much it's no big deal to us.  She says she's fine....She's going to be 20 next week.  Really.  I don't feel old enough to have a child turning 20.  That means she really isn't a child anymore......scary.
Could not have asked for better conditions for my ride.  Maybe a lit[...]

For as awful as the 13 kids in Tuesdays H.S. class are the Thursday class is opposite. 33 children with smiles who can play the games, follow the rules, be respectful to teachers, offer help, never quit and try their best. Their parents actually smile and say good morning to me instead of giving me dirty looks or pretending like they don't hear me. So for all I go on about the bad stuff it is more worth my time to go on about the good! But one more thing, my co-teacher on Thurs teaches swim lessons to the Tue kids after our gym time. She said they are awful in the pool too & she had to give out report cards. Many did not pass the level because they can't follow directions and take instruction so I am not the only teacher on the bad list ha ha ha!

I have really dropped the ball here lately with strength training. Need to get back to. But my foot is so much better and I'm pretty sure lunges/squats/burpees irritate it. I could be doing pilates or stuff on the fitness ball though[...]

The class hours work well for me on some days and it's basically the same distance for me, but to the north, as the original location. I've choices now to get my douchebaggery on!!! I can drive down the street I live off of 1.5 miles or drive up the street I live off of 2.5 miles. Cray!
