Still waiting to hear about the background check for J. He actually passed the internal one already, and now they're doing the external one. He has a provisional start date with them, but I'm not counting any chicken yet.

Getting clearer and clearer why I am leaving my current job. Boss is trying to jam all these assignments and it also seems that he has no idea how much work I actually did. Now he wants to learn everything. WTF? Maybe it would have been good to figure that out long ago. Oh well. I am trying not to have hard feelings but his little remarks to people here about me leaving are starting to me off. Most people know why I am leaving. Most of it is my fault (not proactive) but some of it is his terrible management style.

Right now I have no plans on any training or whatever it is that I do. I have 5k on the 4th and then the Chicago Tri. Gotta get in the pool.

8:31 AM: Podiatrist appointment last night revealed what I already knew, I have PF in my R foot. Orthotics are $600. I'd like to get them ONLY BECAUSE we're going to be traveling to Switzerland and Italy in September and I'd like to be able to walk around pain free for extended periods of time. Ideally, I'd really like to strengthen and stretch my foot so I don't need orthotics, but in case that strengthening/stretching process isn't complete by the end of August, I'd like to have these $600 toys to fall back on. Nothing worse than walking around Europe on bloody stumps of feet. Well, ok, there are some things that are worse... so, I take that back.  
12:39 PM: I called BCBS and lo and behold custom orthotics are covered 100%. I have already met my deductible and my out of pocket maximum for this year, ( a knee replacement will do that for you) so orthotics it is! Yippee! 
In other news, Trudy is back from North Carolina and she's going to a wedding on Saturday. She c[...]

This weeks long run.  Inside due to concerns on whether the IT band would hold up or not.  Obviously it did! 
I pilated.

Thing One and I hung out in the pool for a while last night.  The water was chilly, but it was nice to hang out with her for a bit.  It takes a lot of 1:1 time to draw her out so it was a good opportunity with Miss Thing off doing her PRISM research and John in Orlando for his meeting.
Today is Pilates Fix Extreme.  I'm fairly certain my core will be cursing.  The entire workout has a resistance band wrapped around the feet.  Tell me a muscle group I didn't use and that isn't cursing please....they ALL hurt!!

Got a call from the county courthouse this morning. At first thought it was for jury duty since I'm on the list again, but they wanted to know my availability to come in for another trial translation. He's going to have to wait until I get back from Utah. Same guy actually. So, here's to side hustles.

I slept poorly--up at 1 am. Not good.

However, I made the most of it--did laundry and watched a little boob tube before running before work. Today's work out was 6 easy and I felt tight at the beginning. You can tell it was from PlYo was a driver.

Today's run was along the trail to lime ridge and I did a couple of hills then headed back. Good stuff
