Nice ride, not too hard. It was WARM out there! The wind actually felt good! And Hope has talked me into doing TriWaco on Sunday, yikes! Now to head over to the website to see if it's still open!

Had to run a bunch of errands this morning, so taking this as a rest day.  Bought all the chemicals I needed to strip and wax the kitchen floor, probably a 2-3 day job, so might start that this afternoon.

Wow, this felt MUCHO BETTERO today! Still some twingy type pain, but much better! I need to see how I'll feel this evening, because that's when it's been bad, but so far so good! Still not swimming full out, but my times were a tad bit faster today.

So I had a good visit with my doc on Friday... she actually dug a little deeper into my history to see if she could figure out the shoulder thing.  She ran a bunch of labs and is checking into the possibility of rheumatoid arthritis which although I do not WANT to have RA, it would answer ALL the questions about the auto-immune crap dealing with my eyes.  In the meantime, she put me back on Celebrex which I was taking last year to see if would stop my eyes from flaring (it didn't, so now I'm on Humira), and so far so good.  It definitely takes the edge off the pain!  I'm taking one pill a day for 2 weeks, and if I am still having a lot of pain I can go up to the max of 2 pills a day, follow up in a month and the good thing is that I can still swim, she wants me to stay active.

Another nice cool morning for a long ride! Loved the cloudiness, it kept the temps down, although so humid we could feel water droplets in the air. A few dogs, but just a nice solid ride.

Hot 2 Trot 5K, beautiful cool morning for Texas in July! Course measured way long. 4th AG, and my Garmin refused to turn on, so those are official results. Good run, had to walk on and off, still very humid and there were rolling hills. Cow pasture was NASTY smelling this morning and new route was an out and back so we got to smell it twice, mmmmm.... Good turnout for a local race, over 400, not sure how many in my AG, I had 2 friends that came in behind me, so at least 6. Will check later.

4th out of 11 AG.

270 out of 377 total.

Another rest day.... it rained tons overnight and is still looking pretty yukky out there.  I have an appointment this afternoon to see the doc about my shoulders again.... one good thing is that tomorrow's morning temps are supposed to be mid-60's!!  Should make for a good race!
