Have a race rehearsal this weekend and don't feel ready. Not feeling the love on Fiona. Makes me sad. My run seems ok. Not sure how I feel about all this. Will just keep plugging along.

Had fun at Lulu Lemon doing a fit/feedback event this am. They generously gave us any item we wanted for coming. I chose new running shorts. I love their shorts. Sweet. :)

Tonight Ingrid Michaelson concert. Hope its good!

Screwed up the sets. Meh. Still can't count in the water even with the clock!

Quite windy and chilly for the run. Took Cath on my favorite bit of Troy run which fit into our schedule perfectly. She of course took off during the repeats....I see her turn the wrong way and disappear around a corner...I'm thinking....what do I do??? I can't catch her! She just ran in a little circle knowing I was behind her. Phew!!! Love seeing her do her thing and disappear before my eyes!

Then we swam. Post run swims can be tough on the cramping side of things. I'd taken a salt tab pre run and drank gatorade during, and was mindful not to push off too hard. Today, cramps avoided. Yay. My shoulders and lats were grumpy in the wu after yesterday's faster swimming, but ok after the wu. Predictably, I fell apart about half way through the workout. Still, not too horrible. Lessons start this Sunday with the crew. I will miss the second one, but I will to get a few more things to focus on for through IMMT.

Then it was to AA to meet the girl for dinner and her last orchestra concert for this year. Tears were shed. Not happy ones either. Long assed day. Want to fix it all for her and know at 21 my girl will have a rough life. No matter what. So many tough things to work out and I have no clue how to help her through.

Dear Coach, sprinting at the end of a hard/ez set is dumb, signed the slow one.

UGH. This set didn't look rough on paper, but yeah. I've no speed, so it was rough. Fatigue set in about mid way through the 100's. Toughed it out. It will come.

Hmmm. I'm saying that a lot lately lol. :)

Watching Boston was awesome. Meb had me on the edge of my seat! So happy for so many friends and team mates who went and kicked ass. Some day. I'll get there someday.

    Brick....2x800th. Hard.

    went to Stony with Dave. Weird. He kind of messed with my routine. Add to that it was my first outdoor ride, and yeah. Just weird.

    It was windy and warmish though, and I was glad to be out doors. My nether regions were not however. Forgot the chamois butter. Big mistake. Stony is just as rough as I remembered. Rode with Rick and Bob. Bob noticed my lack of fitness (he said it much nicer tho.) Then after I finished I told Dave (who was done and chilling by the car) that I was join going to the bathroom, then run. So, I;m running (and working hard darn it) and my phone rings, rings again and then the text. I stop and its Dave. Where are you. WTH??? I texted back, an kept running. Pffft. Don't know how often I'll be asking him to be my date lol.

    HIM is in 7 weeks. Must stay focused on the little things...sleep, clean eating, water. The rest will come. I just know it.

      Brutal ride today. Just brutal. Sweat like a PIG, rode the IMMT course at fraser with 14 others (thank goodness for company!) and I just could not get the Ftp today. The ladder set was hard on that course. Only 45 miles in 3 hours. Damn. Got so much work to do!
