Still sore from the lower body W/O on Monday...WTF....I REALLY must have overdone it.
Nothing doing today. "J" had some outpatient surgery on her elbow and wrist and I am getting ready for13-15 folks to grace our home expecting copious amounts of fine vittles and grub...so Oldest M and I have been cooking and cleaning after I got home from the hospital.
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving and safe travels to those doing so. And a special THANKS to our troops serving and protecting us.
Have a 20 miler scheduled for Saturday with Dr. GoodHands...not going to do anything much between now and then except I may try and get 3-5 miles in tomorrow sometime (I'll have to be quick)
Went with Dr. GoodHands to Suwanee Greenway...did 8 and felt real good. It got dark right at the end of the run and we had to walk some extra because we started with a 1+ mi. trail run with lots of roots etc. and we couldn't see the ground the last mile or so.
Going to try and take the new ride out for a spin tomorrow before I go to the River for the Tri group's regular run.
Got some clarity on a couple of things today....in the grand scheme of things I guess tat is a good thing.
We shall see.
Closest Book Quote, from "The Best Tar Heel Barbecue": (Hey...I am a foodie..not an intellect ;) )
"The combination of smokiness and sweetness makes for an absolute tast symphony-just enough outside crunch to go with the moist melt in your mouth meat."
Rules:* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.* Turn to page 56.* Find the fifth sentence.* Post that sentence along with these instructions in a note in your BLOG.* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual... Use the CLOSEST.
why? cuz Yanti said to
FRICKIN computer crashed AGAIN today....I think it is the damned power supply AGAIN. If so...that is the 3rd one this YEAR. I am sooooooo pi$$$$$$ed. Was putting in info from workout this a.m. and BAMB...gone. I'm at the library now but don't have time to finish.....but at least the workout got done...that is a GREAT thing. I think I got the computer fixed...at least I hope so.
Headed to get fitted for my new bike...not high end enough to be called bike pron...but it is going to be great for me. A TREK 1.2...White with Red trim..got a decent deal on a new one...and YES...I know it is all about the engine...I am working on that as well as I just started a new plan. While the plan is fairly low key right now (because of a Jan. Marathon) I am SURE things will change after that...Judging from the plan name "How to kill a friend in 32 weeks plus taper" Written, directed and produced by Jonathan-22.
We shall see
Oh yeah...I went SWIMMING. Not pretty but I got wet. About 1000 yds (probably a little over). Supposed to be as much "continuous as possible. Did mostly 50's but threw in 3 100's in the middle...I really have no swim endurance...YET...but it will get there.
That pretty much is the only good thing happening today...very dark after I got home and I can't put a finger on why....and the more I think about that....well you see where that is going.
