carp. the Garmin didn't upload properly. I ran over to the stadium which was closed, so I ran intervals in the streets sort of by time, or from street light to street light. Ran a bunch of ~ 440's, and several 880's. I was counting on Garmin to keep time, number, and pace.

Silly machine started uploading when I got near the computer before I hit reset. Oh well maybe I can get it corrected tonight.

Swim

  • 02m /100 yards

By noon my left ITB muscle toward the back is very sore. Today's work out was supposed to be easy, so I made it very short and very easy. But at least I got in the water.

Even if you are on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there. - Will Rogers

I've decided to put a little smiley face on my calendar each day I make it to the pool this week.  So today I made it only so that I could get my smiley face.

When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.  When you are sorrowful, look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.  - Khalil Gibran

At first I thought, what? No!  But the more I think about this the more truth I see.  I'm sad missing my dad.  I'm sad missing my son who has gone off to college, I'm sad for the times when my kids were little.  All these things indeed were delightful.


Day one of swimming every day at lunch - successful!

 

Sunday - August 24

Bike #1
  • 1h 55m
  • 28.00 miles
  • 14.61 Mi/hr

Easy spin. Legs tired. Didn't want to turn around, but legs occasionally were tweaking like they might cramp so I came back. Probably would have been fine.

Bike #2
  • 20m
  • 4.50 miles
  • 13.50 Mi/hr

mtn bike over to pool (closed dang it) then to office, then home at end of day.

Missed my swim window. Pool is not open very long on Sunday.

Saturday - August 23

Run
  • 2h 36m
  • 13.23 miles
  • 11m 47s /Mi

Up at 4:15, out the door at 5:15 to run over to the YMCA and join friends for a long run. I ran with Tim out to Popcorn's house. He wanted to run easy and therefore I could keep up. Was very nice to have someone to push me just a tiny bit and help pass the time.

I got behind in hydration and nutrition a bit, but not too bad. I asked him to walk once to take some of both. Ran the 3 miles to the YMCA ran around the parking lot till they got there, then we visited for 15 minutes till Popcorn showed up. Ran steady for the next 6 miles 10 - min pace. Stopped to refill gatoraide at Popcorn's house, then did my 11 min pace with walking every 4 minutes all the way home. - I should swim this afternoon, we'll see if that happens.


To laugh at life is not to be unconcerned, rather it is the way we gain that special energy which allows us to live more fully.  For it is laughter that is the unique measure one adds to life's sounding sea. - Daniel Panger

Today: run / swim.  Pack up the rest of the ski stuff, and unpack some of Dad's stuff, clean house a bit and try to start getting a little organized.  Throw some junk away.  Nap.  There must be a nap on the list.  And clean the aquarium.  Grocery shopping.  Tomorrow should definitely be a work day.  Too much time spent this week catching up and not enough time actually working.   I need to work on the Cyclefest organization as well.  Less than a month away and I haven't contacted the EMT's or the Boy Scouts who usually do our aide stations.  Need to revise my volunteer list and start twisting some arms to get people to drive SAG.

Need to stay off of facebook.

Your task is not to seek for Love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. - Rumi

So the plan to get in the pool every day this week starts into action on Friday.  I can only do today.  Cannot do yesterday or tomorrow.   So today I got in the pool.  I'm pleased.

Also I worked on consulting work all morning - not administrative stuff.  pleased about that too.

Freedom is not the absence of commitments, but the ability to choose - and commit myself to - what is best for me. - Paulo Coelho

There is nothing worth having that doesn't require constant attention and recommitment. ...You are the only one who can make the choice to live the life of your dreams.  No one else has the power to give it to you or take it away.   ...Take some time to become clear about what you want and how you want to live. - Cynthia James

 


Time to reload my training plan. 

My daughter is supposed to come in to help me today.

Drop U-Haul, Cat to Vet for some sort of abscess or cyst.  Her face is all swollen up on one side.  Poor kitty.  Had a massage scheduled but she canceled.  I should go swim at lunch but have managed to spend the time on BT.
