Kids are going to Grandma's this afternoon, so I was planning to ride my bike and paint, but winds are gusting 50 mph outside, so I'm going to nix the outdoor bike ride. Might have to set up the trainer since I already missed spinning. Bummer...
I am also sitting here planning out my workshop schedule for next year, and wondering if planning a class a month is going to completely bury me by the time summer rolls around?? We'll see!

Just a few more hours and I'm off until Monday! 
And have I mentioned how much I love my boss? So I requested off Dec. 22 - Jan. 1 to burn off all that vacation that I hadn't taken yet. But there are some major projects I am coordinating region-wide that have a potential to get crazy around Dec. 30-31 (multiple contract agreements with broadcasters and cable networks expire at year-end - you know, those crawls you see on your TV that say "your cable provider is negotiating with the owner of this station and your cable provider will no longer show programming on this channel if we can't come to an agreement after this date) so I know I'll be working intermittently no doubt. But yesterday my boss said she wants to be sure I'm keeping track of when I'm working on "vacation" and we will square it up. Because, you know, vacation is part of your compensation package and she doesn't want me to get slighted in the LEAST because of timing beyond our control. Bless.

Stretched and rolled last night. I found some sore, tight spots, mostly in the hips, and focused most of my time there.

Going for a swim today, then a run after work. First swim in about a month.

-Update-
So, I swam today...but got out after just 20 minutes. Called the doc's office and going to get my shoulder looked at. It's been bothering me for the past month, or so. I figured I had a strain, but think now that I may have a rotator-cuff injury.

So, I didn't swim last night.  The wind was CRAZY! I knew that there were power outages and trees down all around the city. I just didn't feel good about:
1. Leaving Felicity with Laura when there was a good chance the power would go out (it didn't)
2. Driving in the city, even for less than 10k, especially through my neighbourhood with all the old oak trees and to the Annex where there are just as many mature trees ... likely to be many stoplights out and i just didn't want to deal with it in the dark.
So there. Sigh. No swimming for two weeks :S

Day #064
200 days until the Utah Valley Marathon

Seeing the amount of days until the marathon is very alarming to me. It is very far away, yet, I have wasted so much time up to this point.

I'm a little bummed. I'm not sure exactly what I expected. I guess I thought the stitches would come out and I'd be able to put a little weight on my foot and when the pins came out, I'd start walking again. Not exactly. The stitches are out. Monday I am allowed to take the bandage off and I can shower. Still no weight bearing. The doc says the longer I go, the better because I have bones fusing and the longer I give them to fuse, the better off I'll be. In two weeks, I go back for xrays and maybe have the pins removed. At that time, I'll most likely be placed in a walking cast so I can start a little weight bearing. The doc says the knee cart is my friend. Get used to it.

Stitches come out this morning. Excited and very nervous to get this over with and find out what the next step is.
