Monday.

It took forever for me to get my training email on Sunday.  Either my coach was cave diving and got home late, or he was having trouble deciding what to give me.  He is kind funny as he admits he only has a very basic miles plan and wings it every week based on my …

Training and the Blues.

I truly wish this was a post about Training and the Blues… But it’s more about… Now…It isn’t any secret that I’ve had an inordinate, unprecedented amount of stress at work. A personal event occurred this weekend that should have made me happy, but seems to have plunged me into a bit of misery. It’s …

Sufferin’ part 2…

What a lesson this Grind week has given me. On Sunday, I was 100% sure it was a rest week.  Look here if you don’t believe me.   I remember thinking that it would be a cut back and that I’d be all bright eyed and bushy tailed.   Sunday evening kind of earlier than normal …

Silent Saturday

I never heard this term as a child for the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. At any rate, it’s kind of a good term.  On this day it is said that Jesus Christ “rested’ in the tomb…or alternatively, descended into hell for the redemption of all those who not  condemned who had died …

Training Week Wrap Up.

This was a particularly challenging training week.  The workouts weren’t that bad, but I guess situationally they were. Monday: I was still in San Francisco.  Yep.  We went to the famous spot.  At that point I was kind of losing my patience with my host. It was a very warm day in San Francisco, and …

It finally happened…..

My Coach Broke ME.   Whew.  I have not been posting mostly due to travel and the monotony of many of my workouts, but Oh WOW, Oh Wow. This whole week has been tough. Monday night I took the red-eye from CA to Fl.  It was a very good flight, much more comfortable than the …

Apologies to my 12 readers.

LOL. I know this blog is really for me to keep track of stuff, and it doesn’t get loads of traffic cause it isn’t that interesting, so I find it funny to apologize to any of the 12 that may actually read any of the posts here.  There have not been too many lately. Training …

Transition Tuesday Yet again

Yesterday was Transition Tuesday. It was a tough day at work.  I am feeling kind of exhausted and very concerned about how things are going at work.  Work lately dominates my mind, which is not a great thing.  But I do have one of those career things, rather than a “job”  so it’s kind of …

Week of Crazy

SO the workouts have been pretty OK this week. Monday I had a teeny tiny Swim and then a 3 miler that went OK.  It was cold, and the whole running while wet I’m not always a fan of, but it worked out fine. Tuesday was a bigger swim…which I kindly saved for the afternoon. …

Handed my own ass to myself today

Today was a tough workout. I had the day off for bereavement leave, which is a bit of a strange thing  as I do actually feel bereaved, and being at home – not on my regular schedule- did nothing to improve this feeling.   I miss Grandma…or the idea of Grandma or something like that. …
