Not a lot of excuse for today... I worked 12 hours and had an ear ache all day.  When I got home, all I wanted to do was rest.  I should have still gotten a bike in.  Good thing it is a recovery week.

Today was just crazy busy with work from start to finish. Was totally exhausted at the end of the day (almost at the start of the day!).

Quite windy and chilly for the run. Took Cath on my favorite bit of Troy run which fit into our schedule perfectly. She of course took off during the repeats....I see her turn the wrong way and disappear around a corner...I'm thinking....what do I do??? I can't catch her! She just ran in a little circle knowing I was behind her. Phew!!! Love seeing her do her thing and disappear before my eyes!

Then we swam. Post run swims can be tough on the cramping side of things. I'd taken a salt tab pre run and drank gatorade during, and was mindful not to push off too hard. Today, cramps avoided. Yay. My shoulders and lats were grumpy in the wu after yesterday's faster swimming, but ok after the wu. Predictably, I fell apart about half way through the workout. Still, not too horrible. Lessons start this Sunday with the crew. I will miss the second one, but I will to get a few more things to focus on for through IMMT.

Then it was to AA to meet the girl for dinner and her last[...]

1:00pm
Had a doctor's appointment to get some prescriptions re-filled and figured that I'd also get the cyst on the back of my neck looked at and talk about the persistent cough that I've had for 4 years... but apparently I can only ask the doctor about 1 thing at a time otherwise insurance most-likely wouldn't pay for the other issues to be addressed, so now I need to make at least 2 more appointments...  because that makes a lot of sense.  However, the doctor was really nice, very thorough and asked a LOT of questions about my history, etc. so I felt really comfortable with her and will be fine with coming back to her... and she told me that I don't look at ALL like my age so even if she was lying, total bonus[...]

Life won't wait forever

7:00am:  Well, the headache that dogged me from Sunday night seems to be gone -- or at least giving me a break.  Was slightly better last night, but then woke up around 3am with it raging again.  Took meds and woke up headache-free, but absolutely exhausted... a trade-off that I'll take.
Clarke seems to be doing a little better today, putting some weight on the bum leg and not looking quite as pathetic as he had been.  He was restless last night, though, barging in and out of my room several times (and with a cone on, it's not like he's quiet about it... he hasn't seemed to completely figure out how not to bash into things with it yet), but I suppose I'll take that over him not wanting to move.
If the headache stays away, training has GOT to happen this afternoon.

Run didn't happen. Tried and couldn't stop coughing so turned it into a walk.

Up coughing from about 130 on but the worst was from 330 on. Took cough drops, had cough medicine in, had a glass of milk and still coughing. Ugh.

3 mile run on tap tonight.

Shin area seems to be okay this morning. Hopefully the swimming and spin class tonight will help it out some and I'll try to work in a massage over the next couple days. This weekend is the Huntersville Sprint, which I'll either be doing the 500 yard swim or the run. I'll know once Robert makes up his mind.

Couldn't hold it any longer today! It was kind of gross bc I did it right after finishing my run, so I was getting sweat on and sliding all over the mat. I may have had another 20 secs in me, but it definitely was not a 3' day today.
