Damn it.  Tweaked the left glute/piri on the first ac, scrapped the rest and just ran endurance home.  Crap.  Every time I try to push myself my focked up vintage parts disagree.  I'm rearranging my schedule to push the next speedwork to Saturday.  Hopefully things will be feeling fine by then.  I guess I should be thankful it was only a hard tweak and not a blow out.   Big pouty face. :(

On the good news front, the house should be ready to go to market this weekend, and my partner already has an interested party in the property.  Sweet!  Now, it's up to Kaity and I to get it looking polished for the future buyers!  :)

Lunch got cancelled today, but I did get all my stuff burned onto a disc for the new prez.  Ahhhhh, the pressure of OATH is officially off my shoulders! :)

The reward for a good race?  Vo2max intervals.  Note to self...do not in after race euphoria ask my coach to help me to go harder/faster.  He will hear me and take it to heart.  Oy.  He was pushing me tonight and I was HURTING!  BADLY!  That was some serious discomfort on the Bianchi.  I don't think we've done these since March and they SUCK!  AND, we will be doing lots more in June and July.  AWESOME! 

I almost didn't get the pleasure of the full workout.  I forgot my shoes at home (still attached to the bike hanging in the garage...DOH!) but my Pamela came to the rescue!  Yesterday she lent me a cute top to wear over my bathing suit at the picnic, today she lent me her shoes to ride in (how exciting!  We wear the same size shoes!) and tonight she gave me shampoo at the pool cause all mine leaked out of my container.  Hmmm...I'm the mom, but she's been taking mighty good care of me lately! :) 

I wore my new kitty cat bathing suit to the pool.  FUN!  It was drill city tonight. After that butt kicking in the lab, that was fine by me. 

I got some very sad news today...my swim buddy won't be in the lab after June until the fall.  And he's not going to the pool in July either.  Super sad face!  :(  He has Muncie coming up, then travel with his wife.  I will miss my Scott swim buddy.  :( times 100!

Picked out some nice subway tiles in tumbled stone to do the back splash under the cabinets today.  It's going to look really nice in that kitchen.  Tomorrow it goes in. 

I have lunch with the director of orchestras at Troy High to pass on info to the new president.  I'm looking forward to handing off the last of my files and being officially done.  Then it's get that house cleaned up and on the market and plan the grad party final details.  :)

Volunteered at the kids tri on Belle Isle today!  It was so much fun to cheer them on!  I was stationed on the bike course and the kids were working so hard!  Lots of them had their swim caps on UNDER their helmets!  HOTTTTT!  Poor things!  I loved seeing my teammate's daughter who is a tiny 7 year old spinning away on her bike with streamers and training wheels!  Too cute! :)  

Just like a big kids tri, there was a mechanical, a crash and stories after the finish.  A great time. 

After that, I was patiently waiting for registration to open up.  I had to pick up my packet and get out of there for graduation.  In my haste I forgot to correct my team status.  Ooops! :)

Graduation was long (as expected) but nice.  The principal is a great speaker and gave a funny, relevant speech.  After photos we had a very nice (but kind of late) dinner with my brother and sister in law.   Then we popped over to Jo and Bills to have a glass of wine to celebrate the girls graduation as they headed to the high school for the all night party.  Then home to pack for the race and picnic afterwards.  A very very full day...the kind of full that makes you smile all day!

3 laps around Belle Isle with the team

Looking at the bike and run numbers for the year...I'm within striking distance of putting to bed last years totals this month.  I'll get the bike for sure, and the run by next month.  Saweet!

Busy day on tap (for like, the next 3 weeks straight!) I need to get birthday/grad gifts, a cup (Brian is playing paintball in the morning) items for the house, groceries and downtown to Belle Isle by 5!

The granite looks great at Farhill, but working on a bigger house means lots more clean up for me.  Good thing I have Kaity in tow to help me a bit. Hopefully we can get it to market next week! Someone is going to have a lovely home on a gorgeous lot in that place.  All those windows I've been cleaning look out to a great big lush yard!  

*Fun on Belle Isle today.  Good swim with coaching by Tony, nice and easy ride of 2 laps, but I passed on the run.  My knee was still bothering me, so I am played it safe and went for one last loop if the island, which had ganja in the air, hookers chatting up cops and LOTS of partiers getting ready to have their Friday night fun.  I was happy to have Tony and Justin as escorts on that last lap, and be on my way back to boring old Troy at 7:45 I tell ya!*

Working on the race report after doing windows at the Farhill property later today.  Hope to have it finished before heading to the lab, but there is a lot to say, so maybe not till tomorrow! :)

*my quads, glutes and the right knee didn't much care for the first threshold repeat, but as always the first one sucks the most.  It got much better (still hard) after that.  AC was kinda fun.  Grrrr!  Big power for a short time!  Lots of folks were power testing including Tony.  That boy can suffer.  Makes me feel kinda wimpy.  It was good to be a cheerleader for everyone though.  It totally makes a difference in the last few minutes!  

Swim was good (or so I thought) until my descending 100's.  After the last one Andrea gave me a look.  The "I'm disappointed in you young lady" look.  I got the feed back that she thinks I should and could be pulling a LOT more water(again).  The windmill action was brought up (again).  Domino was in the pool and he talked with me and let me watch his stroke.  Then he swam with me and watched me.  He gave me a couple things to think about and swam with me again.  I get it, but it's gonna take a LOT of work to make it habit.  Damn.  Tony jumped in the pool and did his "windmill" stroke, which was hilarious and very extreme to show me how I'm NOT propulsing myself in the water.  Sooooo, coming off of a pr swim in my first HIM, guess what?  I'm STILL doing it wrong! LOL!  If I can figure this out by IMFL, just think how much energy I'll be saving myself!  Yes, I think it's worth it to try and master this.*
