Thursday fun

Well. To jazz up this post I’d love to post a photo of the new beautiful daughter of my Coach. She is PERFECT. I am not biased. All that said, it’s not really the thing to do, she’s not my kid after all.  She is making me smile a lot though. I’m still going through …

Day 6 of build….Soul sucking….

Well.  I knew Day 6 would be hard. I got to the gym about 15 minutes later than I wanted which was very irritating to me. But 15 minutes is pretty good for my track record. I got on the cycle and started to spin.  I felt tired.  So I took the level on the …

Build Day 4, or How I am sore.

Build day 4 was a typical Wednesday workout… Brick brick baby Brick Brick! 50 min cycle and a 4 mile run. Just like always I got to the gym later than I would have liked. So I suppose I had littler egard for myself, since the only thing I’m ever late for usually is my …

Friday Fail Day

Soooo, Thursday I had to have a massage in my house. It was AWFUL.  I LOVE my massage therapist, but I think I hate to have people in my house.  It’s pretty messy.  I did make an effort to clean up a bit but with the dog shedding so much, my vacuum gets clogged with …

Speedy Thursday of course

Thursday is of course Speed work. I’ve had a good training week so far. Today is kind of one of those “VERY IMPORTANT WORKOUTS” Some of course are just time on your feet type workouts, important, but in general you complete the workout to complete it.  Others, like the 800 meter repeats…are really focused on …

Tuesday Training

Just my usual training blog entry.  Up and down day. Monday I got an “invitation”  to explain the infection stuff to the CEO in 24 hours.  This is a good thing, but just not really what I was prepared for…overall.  I also found out on Monday that the Center For Medicaid/care services HAI validation rules …

Brick brick baby brick…

As always…Saturday apparently is a brick.  I seem to always have a brick.  I kinda like bricks. this morning though, under a dense fog advisory, all I really wanted to do was stay in bed. Yeah, about the stay in bed thing.  I was in bed super early anyway on Friday and I was wide …

Tuesday…

Well,  Tuesday was a little bit boring… I swam a little over a mile. To save myself some time I did it in the morning, so I could do some weights training in the afternoon.   I am pleased to report, even in the kind of dank dark environment of the morning, I didn’t have …

Little Oops…feeling good.

Last night I got an email from the coach… Apparently he intended for me to have a weeks worth of workouts over the Christmas Holidays.  Somehow he didn’t hit send, or my mail box did not receive.  So  Oops.  He seems absolutely mystified that this would occur, but… these things do happen.  So I was …
