Wednesday - July 2

Bike
  • 1h 19m
  • 20.00 miles
  • 15.19 Mi/hr

Road ride with Mary down the Sangamon Valley trail and back. Nice night, almost cold

Opted to give legs a rest and sleep in a bit. Have some issues with the thumb on my left hand and based on my armchair doctor diagnosis,I would say it's just tendonitis, but it's beginning to wake me up at night. I was able to get an appointment with a good ortho doctor for Monday the 7th, thanks to my PT friend Brenda.

The pool was closed yesterday due to some chemical issues. When I swam at the Y, this usually meant a kid had crapped in the pool, but LA Fitness doesn't allow anyone under 14 in there, so it's probably not a crap situation. Assuming the pool is reopened today I'll swim at lunch and then have a bike ride in the evening.

Tuesday - July 1

Run

Not a run per se, ended up walking with one of the newbie runners who just wasn't having a good day. Mildly irritated with myself for not referring her to the walking group but oh well, we had a nice visit and it was a pretty, although very hot, evening

clamshells with band, 20 l/r

It's Monday but it's gonna be a short week. Yeah for Independence Day!!! We are headed down to Lake of the Ozarks on Friday morning for a quick getaway.

Cut the grass last night and I think I lost a couple of pounds from sweating. The muggy summer days are here. I consider it heat acclimization.

Sunday - June 29

Bike
  • 1h 20m
  • 14.00 miles
  • 10.50 Mi/hr

Rode mtb around on some of the back roads. We've had so much rain lately, it will be weeks before the singletrack is rideable

Side plank, l/r, 20 sec
plank 30 sec
FB hyperextension, 10 reps
trunk rotation with med ball, 10 each side

Headed out to my sisters this morning for a lunch to celebrate my mom's 80th birthday. Her BD was actually back in May but this was the first weekend where my brothers' overbooked families were available...kind of ticks me off that their kids' sports drive their entire social lives to this extent but hey, I guess I'm guilty of the same thing to a point.
