Just Enjoy the Moment

John texted me last night as I was leaving the gym.  Said he was going to call when he got back to his room from dinner.  I waited up.  BIG mistake.  At 11:30 he texted again saying he had just gotten back to his room.  Really?  I am going to bed, I waited up and now it is wayyyyy past my bedtime.
Might take the bike out for a little ride once the coffee wakes me up. ***Done, gorgeous day and nice ride.  Completely enjoyed it--with the exception of my keester in the saddle part.  Not loving my saddle.  And I suck at climbing, but that is cause of a lack of real bike riding for most of the year.  THAT will change next season!
Miss Thing called me yesterday.  She went to an open house to try and get transferred into the nursing program at Longwood.  The person leading the program was NOT in the least bit encouraging.  She was pretty upset.  I reminded her that we had talked about coming up with a Plan B all along[...]

Heading home today! I need to swim tonight.
The young lifeguard took a bit of my taper madness, travel weary bad attitude tonight.  They wont put the lap lanes in until lap swimming starts at 5, because the lesson instructors want the full time then the swim team coaches and swim lesson instructors for the 6:00 session want to kick us out or make us move lanes at 5:50 so they can start right at 6.  Pissed me off as they stopped me in the closing laps of an 800 tt. 
Good to be home though!

Body Pump

Went back to the other gym in my old neighborhood. Saw my two gym friends and got a good workout. I like this teacher, too. She's not as intense as the instructor at the gym near my house.

"The best & most beautiful things in life cannot be seen, not touched, but are felt in the heart." Helen Keller
Today is a late work day, so I had a 3.5 mile run at the park on the calendar. Plans need to be flexible, especially when awakened at 3:30 am by the sound of the storm. Fitfull off and on sleep after that. I finally got out of bed around 6 and headed out to get it done as early and cleanly as possible in the neighborhood. Good thing I did, it looks like the rest of the day will be rainy, overcast and gray. 80* at the beginning of the run and 90% humidity made it nice to cool off here:

Thank you so much for all the love and support.
Root canals, fillings, drillings, and SEVEN temp crowns finished up this morning in a mammoth dentist session. Shoulda seen the look he gave me when I asked about training ... no, I didn't tell him about the 10K swim this weekend or Ironman next, why? What he doesn't know won't hurt him
So much more painful today after anaesthetic wore off than even when I broke them. Serious faching pain. Today's the day (and probably also delayed onset of getting whacked in the face) I really feel like I got bammed in the mouth by a gloveless heavyweight.

Skipped the gym, grabbed my yoga mat and headed down to the edge of the Hudson under the GWB and did some plyo, pushups, burpees, PT exercises, skipping, abs and stretching. It was a sunny and lovely day.
