I'm faster than I look!

This weekend my bike goes up on the trainer and Sunday also begins the official ultra training plan.  And perhaps I will get to the pool once in a while and keep up with yoga too.  Things have been pure chaos for months and are finally looking to hit a routine at last.

I was meant to swim this morning, but after 11 straight days of exercise and only 6-7 hours of sleep a night, I was too shattered to get out of bed this morning! Will do the swim training on the weekend.

Back in Texas - Little Negative Split Action
Home in Texas this weekend, working on getting the last details taken care of before getting the house on the market next week.   So much work to do.  UGH.  Moving is SUCH a pain!!!  But it's the right thing for us to do now.
This morning's run was better than expected, and I even ran solid negative splits.   However, my left calf started to tighten up on my run Monday, and hasn't fully loosened up.   It's now REALLY tight and somewhat uncomfortable.   Don't know why it's cramped up like it has, unless it has something to do with the tightness I'm feeling in the right Achilles tendon and I'm overcompensating or something.   Don't know, all I know is it's really still and knotted up.   I do have a long planned appointment with my fabulous endurance sport focused massage therapist this morning, so hopefully that will help.   Hope so.
Now it's get going[...]

P90X3 - Day 11
Challenge day = pushup and pull ups.  I think I am getting better at the pullups but when you start with nothing, there is only one way to go!

Planned bike ride is unlikely to happen today as we have a friend coming to dinner so I am reallocating tomorrow's rest day today and hope that I can squeeze in the ride tomorrow instead.

Spent all afternoon on the phone with Dell yesterday about my tablet. There will be no more Dell computers in this house. Sad because we have owned more than I can count. We are getting ready to buy new desktops. We're going to to through a small local company and build just what we want.

Busy, but fun day on the agenda. Going back out with my mom, then meeting friends for a beer tasting. Honestly, the menu and beer choices sound a little scary to me, but I'm going to try everything!

Today is core day! Last time, I added some moves that I've never done or haven't done for a long time. It feels really good to be getting stronger (although the process is way slower than I'd like!)

Back and forth to western Mass for my Dad's orthopedic appt. Still not able to put weight on his left arm to use his walker. Very tough to hear for him as he has not been home since he fell at the end of Aug. He was talking about stopping dialysis and just "checking out". He was crying and I was crying when I got him back to the nursing home. Long drive home in the wind and rain. I got home in time to teach Spin but there was only one signed up to I just cancelled and stayed home by the fire.

You're my compass when I'm lost, my anchor when I get tossed, and the right way when all I can do is wrong. -Eric Church
I bailed on today's run, but moved it to tomorrow morning. So, today marks the return of the MAMIL, as I should be able to get the bike out on the road for the first time in a while. I rode a short one last week and today should be a bit more. And then there will be a trip back in time as TW and I go to see "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" on stage. There is a bit of trepidation to seeing this put on by the local community theatre company. It could go be awesome, ugly, or something in the middle I guess, so we'll simply go with the flow.
