An interesting month...  Adding to the bad hip and cold/sore throat, came food poisoning.   I ate jelly beans and coffee and ended up with an upset stomach. One of the other people at work had the same combo and ended up in the same pickle.  

I almost ended up backing out of my ride, but didn't.  I HTFU!  Matt, Lonnie and me headed up Mount Diablo.  It was a miserable ride--contra to the couple of rides.  Those guys smoked me.  They beat me to the top by at least 2 minutes.   It became on of those mental toughness days....  But the ride is in the book and well needed.

Total climbing was 2,692.   Total calories is 1,400

Danette and I swam at Heather Farms at 7:00. I left my workout notes at home--so I made up my own workout. I felt a little slow--like I was too vertical. But, I cranked it out. HTFU.

I stayed at home today-trying to get over the cold. I'm making progress--maybe tonight I will go weight lifting... We'll see.

AAAAAHHHHHHHHH---I have two blue squares on my calendar out of two days.  That's the same amount of squares as last month.  AAAAAAHHHHHHHH.

Joining the sore knee and broken toe, I have a post nasal drip cold. Blech. I have had more sickeness/injuries this year than in the last 4.


I was sitting at home feeling sorry for myself and I came across this...

I wouldn't try to run this from work!

I guess I need to HTFU.

This is my first run in 15 days.

My morning run started off great. My first mile was between 8 & 9 minutes. I chose to run the canal trail--which is flat and paved to take pain off my knee. At about mile 2, I got the same pain in my outside of my knee. By mile 3 I was in pain. I continued until mile 4 where I gave it up.

Back to stretch and reevaluate.


I swam at lunch, but had to cut the cool down short by 200 yds. I hate the breathing drills. It has been a couple of years since I have done them and they are much easier than I remember.


I stretched my brittle body while watching TV tonight.

No long run or bike this week--bah!  Toe is much better today. I'm going to try to run tomorrow.

I spent the day with Layton and Dennae and one of her friends Whitney at Alcatraz and Angel Island.  We had a good time puttzing around and playing tourist.  Both Layton and Dennae had been there before, but Dennae was too young to remember.  

We left at 8:00 at got back at 3:00.  I'm calling it two hours of walking...

With the toe bruised, swollen and broken I'm skipping the run. Bah...too many days without running.

So I called an workout audible--I weight lifted for an hour and I'm going to spin later today. I'm really working on stretching out my hamstrings and hips.

I did the CTS climb DVD tonight. It was a good, tough workout. Tomorrow I am supposed to get a three hour ride in, but I'm not certain it will happen. I'm talking the younger kids to Alcatraz. I'm picking up one of their friends at 8:00 am--so I'm not certain it will happen. Hopefully, I can spin for a couple of hours.
