Wednesday - November 5

8:30am - Plan for the day:

  • 5:00pm - Running

7:00pm - My shins were starting to feel better today, but in the late afternoon I started having some strange tightness/soreness in one of my calves, so I decided to skip my run.  I figured that I'm better off resting instead of trying to squeeze in one more run before the race on Sunday.

  • 5:00pm - Dinner with my kids and STBX

6:00pm - After dinner, I went to the LBS and did some really cool shopping.  :)

10:00am - At my meeting with the health coach at work, I was shocked when the scale read 3 pounds heavier than last week.  The coach and I are both convinced there's something wrong with the scale (honestly, we are).  :(

6:00pm - My shins still hurt a bit today, so I took it a bit easier than I otherwise would have.

  • 9:00am - Start tracking friends who are doing IMFL today
  • 2:00pm - Running
  • 7:00pm - "Noche de los Muertos" party

1:00pm - Spent part of the day moving all my stuff from one bedroom in the house to another, so that I can set up the first for my girls, so they have a room of their own when they come to visit.

4:30pm - Wow, did my legs hurt today.  I guess playing volleyball last night for the first time in a month beat my shins up pretty good.  So I dialed the pace back a good bit, and was able to get through it.  I'll definitely have to rest my shins this week, and I may have to skip volleyball next Friday night.

"Help Me Understand" by Trace Adkins

Once in a lifetime
You'll open up your heart
Maybe once in your lifetime
You'll swear to never be apart
You think your love's on solid ground
Then out of the blue, it all comes tumblin' down

Who's gonna hold me tonight
When I'm feeling lonely
Who's gonna show me the light
'Cause I need to know
With all the things we've got
How can love just stop
Tell Me
Somebody help me understand

And my picture in your locket
What will you do with it now
All our friends and all our memories
Tell me how we sort them out
What's yours is yours
What's mine is mine
Is that all that's left
After all this time

Who's gonna hold me tonight
When I'm feeling lonely
Who's gonna show me the light
'Cause I need to know
With all the things we've got
How can love just stop
Tell Me
Somebody help me understand

Help me understand
Why I'm not part of our plan
And you don't need me anymore
Help me understand
Why I still wanna be where you are
Even though I know in my heart
You don't love me anymore

Who's gonna hold me tonight
When I'm feeling lonely
Who's gonna show me the light
'Cause I need to know
With all the things we've go
How can love just stop
Tell Me
Somebody help me understand

6:30pm - Tonight's run was awesome.  My goal was to alternate sub-10:00 miles with sub-11:00 recovery miles, and except for one 11:00 mile I nailed it.  I did have to push a bit to maintain pace, but overall I felt pretty good.  Oddly enough though, if you look at the lap data it appears that my AHR and MHR are inversely correlated to my pace.  Strange?
