I guess that could be a metaphor for my site and my training. Man...I don't even know where to start and I don't want this to be a post that just drones on and on, so I'll try to keep it all short and sweet.
Remember when your dad went on a business trip and he would bring you back something from his trip? Usually it was some cheap toy for the airport gift shop or some wings from the airline pilot (which back in the day were actually made of real metal and do they even give those away anymore what with the airlines getting so cheap in offering any kind of amenities)? Well, my dad never really took business trips, but I can fantasize retroactively. My husband does travel a lot for business and recently he brought me back a gift (not my son**insert evil laugh**). It was big and shiny and made of carbon.
Big, huge brownie points for that one!! I've been fitted and riding it as much as possible. The mild winter has helped on that front quite a bit.
I have gotten back in the pool intermittently. Which is good and not good; I should be in there more. I feel okay when I swim, but who am I kidding, I am not pushing myself. Despite the nice lady who told me if I was out of shape then she should go swim in the kiddie pool.
Running. sigh...... What I thought was Achilles issues turned out to be PF in both feet. I am stretching, trigger pointing, Strassburg socking, etc. But my feet get bad after running 3x in a week. I was looking for some good Aquavelo races around these hear parts, but there aren't many. I really would like to do a HIM one, but those are all closed. At least the ones I could find.
I really need to sign up for the marathon...I deferred and I have until next month or lose my spot.
Let's face facts. I am really not into it this year. I started a new job and I really do like it. I am super busy, but since I enjoy what I do, it doesn't seem like work, but the hours have been long. I am tired. I need a vacation.
My mother-in-law passed away at the very end of January. My husband is handling it alright, but I think it was really tough for him to see her slow decline. She suffered from Alzheimer's and it was difficult to see how it changed her. She was a very wonderful mother-in-law to me; always warm and generous. She made me feel like I was her daughter. Our friends and family have been very supportive.
I know, I'm all over the place here.
I recently went to the theater to see "Carrie; The Musical". Right?! It was a bit weird and I couldn't get the movie out of my head as I watched. All things considered, it was at least entertaining.
New age group for me this year 45-50.
My scar from my staph infection has healed quite nicely. Here is the timeline with gruesome pics.
I swear by this stuff.
I got my first pair of bifocals. I am officially middle-aged. Ok, that about sums it up rather unimpressively.
