I went to 24 hour fitness with Danette and worked. I did the regular Tri Bible exercises + sit-ups + medicine ball twists. I picked-up the weight on the leg press to 250 at 25 reps

I checked out my USAT score for last year.  I was 5924 out of 9,168 for my age bracket or 64.6%.  I'm going to have to find one of those foam fingers with 5925 fingers.   Maybe Target.

I went running with Landon, Danette and Dennae tonight at the Lafayette Reservoir.I did one loop--counter clockwide.  I got to the downhill by the fishing area and turned around to run back to Danette and then walked back with her and Dennae.   I was really happy, I ran three miles without having any pain in my knee.

I got home and put ice on the hip and the knee and stretched out.  I'm still suffering from the cold--but it seems to get better.

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.

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.

HAPPY BIRTHYDAY TO AARONSMITH!

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.
