Crap.  Fell again, this time off Fiona in front of my teammates and coach.  Nice.  Smashed my same left hip, hurt my shoulder and right wrist. :(  Seriously?  Again?  Grrrr.   Swim went fine, but we ran into a bunch of folks at the beach and by the time we swam, I had to leave right afterwards.  New run course (but the island is super flat) and the ART doc was there, but I didn't have time to get worked on. Grrrr.  I did have a nice time with Dave at the grad party we went to.  I had some icecream I should have skipped, but hey...I had to pass on the beer! :)

Rest day...lol.  Picking up the wolverine today for the summer, Brian finishes his last day of Freshman year, appointment at the lake house to get the garage door fixed, water the plants and turn sprinklers back on, then off to Tyla's Kona Celebration!  Really looking forward to that! But I also have a million little things to accomplish in between! Wheeee!

Swim felt good and it wasCHILLY!  Steamy pool this am. I kind of like that.  Rode afterwards...recovery spin.  Lots of bunnies and birds on the trail.  Oh, and old people.  Lots of old people walking.  I want to be the old lady running and riding.  Thats my goal! :)

comfy with two lids. :)

Ran and rode at Indian Springs...love that park!  Windy again.  Nice temps though.  Tested the new seat position and it was ok.  Right hip only grumped a bit at the beginning.  My ITB is very very tight and my right glute is a bit tight too.  Yoga, rolling and stretching for me.  Didi the walt reynolds exercises and will be doing them daily to stave off major problems.  :)

Was wide awake fro 3-4am.  Decided to do some visulization for Motor City this weekend.  Hips are still sore even though I took 600 mg ibuprofin.  Did breast stroke kick and about died.  Only did that once lol.  Talked with coach about my hips...she wants me to take one more day, roll, then ride again to see how it goes.  She thinks I may just have activated some muscles not used before.  Yeah, me thinks so!

 

Hoping to get some plans for Spain finalized today.  And Dave is officially quiting his job.  His plan is to leave for Spain and not return to work when we get home.  Lots for him to do before 7/24 if that is to take place.  Me, I'm just pooping my pants trying to figure out how to make ends meet with no paycheck.  Fun.  Not.

*so I took Fiona to the shop...last weekend were my first hard rides since late April when I had the fit tweaked...got my saddle raised up a bit to see if that helps.  Why.  Why did I mess with her?  Stupid saddles sores last season. Fingers crossed my hip issue is resolved.  Tomorrow I ride if the weather is good.*

with the pups in the evening

Crap.  Hips were super sore again.  Rode in the heat of the day, got the first set done, with a roadie sucking my wheel for most of it.  Took my recovery, and he was checking on me waving me to rejoin him. :)  Felt like a real biker!  BUT...the hips were KILLING ME!  I almost cried.  I fell apart on the last set again. The finish of the ride...I.could.not.push.even.150watts.  No way.  It was all I could do to just spin my way back to the car.  Bad thoughts were rolling around in my head during that spin.  Like, I know I suck on the run, but if I don't have my happy place on the bike, why am I doing this?  I don't feel bike ready for Spain.  I know I've got a little time, but I'm not happy about this new pain on the bike...not at all.  Skipped my short brick and decided to add a walk with the dogs later in the day. 

The good news is my friend Tyla kicked some SERIOUS ass at Eagleman, won her ag and is headed to Kona this fall!  :)  I was super happy to get that update after I finished my bike from Steve.  I called him and he let me whine about the hips, and I listened while he whined about his ride this am (he bonked about 50 miles in)  Neither of us is feeling prepared for Worlds.  Lots to do these next few weeks.  If the body allows.
