Worked on keeping my RPM in the low 70s.

Thank goodness that we did not get nailed with the snow, as forecast! I have a 5k on Sunday, and also want to do some outdoor biking... I want dry roads/trails for this!

I have felt like such a slug - the wintry weather, allergies, travel, etc. have certainly added to this.  And, lack of consistent exercise fits into the mix, as well.  SO, over lunch today, I hauled my booty over to the gym to get in some "running" time.  I feel much better now... much less of a slug.  I am now savoring my juice concoction... mmm 

 

Thursday - April 10

I am going to try a new approach to my allergies, etc. and I have an appointment with a Chinese doctor who is licensed in acupuncture and also chinese herbs.  Next Thursday afternoon... it should be very interesting.  The wife of one of my co-workers has been seeing him for a while, and is experiencing relief for the first time from some pretty intense problems.  For now, I am supposed to juice (and drink) the following mixturre on a daily basis: carrots, celery, apple, spinach, pineapple, broccoli, potato.  It actually tastes pretty darn good.

Wednesday - April 9

Run

Wunning - but mostly run:

1.13 @ walk

Interesting how things play out. Two weeks ago I made an appointment with my dr. so that she would renew the prescription for my allergy medication. Today is that appointment... and just in time. Last week's trip to Baltimore really set off my allergies, and I have incredible chest congestion right now... and lots of green crud. So, perfect timing for getting good drugs to clear this up, and perhaps look at other allergy medication.

Tuesday - April 8

Monday became a "no electronics at home" day for me. I realized that after spending a day at work, I was doing a good job of coming home to be bombarded by electrons from my computer, telephone, tv, etc. No phone calls, no blogging, no e-mails, no HGTV. It was wonderful!

I may need to make this a weekly occurrence. Couldn't do the no-TV thing tonight, because I need to watch the TN women defeat Stanford.

Happiness is...

  • Extra clean teeth - thanks to the dentist
  • Tennessee Volunteers own the title for another year

Monday - April 7

The musical was just wonderful - the teenagers did a fantastic job, and the musical has just a delightful story line. I cannot believe the voices on some of these kids - holy cow!

It was fun to be there to support Steve, and he did an incredible job.
580 miles of driving, for 5 hours with the family... time well spent!

Now, I am heading to the gym for a swim with Dawn, and perhaps a run or bike, afterwards. Then a little downtime before the viola-piano recital. And... the weekend will be capped off with the Final Four game between TN and LSU - Go Lady Vols!

Happiness is...

  • Seeing Steve perform in Seussical
  • A fun afternoon with the girls
  • Tennessee is playing in the championship game on Tuesday night!

Saturday - April 5

Madison, to see Steve's musical.
