Friday

Cold Wet….not too fun.   This is the pool at the end of my swim.  In the beginning it was too dark to take a photo.  The weather today was rotten.  The temperature was not impressive at about 48, but the gloom, the cold rain plopping down and the cutting wind really took a toll. …

Friday Loose end

So UGH.  Friday. I really hated work on Friday. There are too many issues going on at work and I feel I barely have a handle on anything. Everything I touch gets messier and messier, and at times I feel like I want to throttle my direct main supervisor, who is great at a distance, …

Thursday Fun festival

I am amazed at how much fun this week has been as far as training.   Work…a different story, and I’ve only worked 2 days this week so far, BUT, it’s really been a nest of boa constrictors or something at work. Working out, however, is working out. Today I awoke to intense fog.  It …

Theme of the Week: Fun

So far, and yes it’s only Tuesday…the theme of the week has been Fun fun fun.   Well, some small parts of my workouts have still felt like work, but not very hard work. Today I swam and then hit the spin bike for 30 minutes.  The bike was so easy that I increased the …

And into every runner’s life…..

Some not really great workouts must occur. Today was apparently a day for that. I was REALLY looking forward to my Saturday workout. Then some things interfered. Friday I had to bathe the dog so he could go to his annual Vet appointment.  He was actually quite dirty based on the bath water. Remember, my …

Ho Hum….

So it looks as if I am in rehab mode. Today I looked at my workout as I was blowing into the gym.  It looked dinky.  I changed out of my adult clothing into my play clothing and went to renegotiate. (Ok so this video is kind of cute and funny, negotiations with my coach …

Discernable Progress

Finally. I woke today feeling good.  I had to be at work early (The ICU was getting a state award for reducing CLABSI so yay us, yay infection prevention.)  Why on earth they needed to do this at 7:30 in the morning I will never know.  BUT…this allowed me to come into work a wee …

Mini Tri & the miracle of tri shorts.

Wow did I ever have an unusual day! I went to see another doctor in Orlando today.  Just a quick check up. I feel like I lately live at doctors offices. Because it’s a drive, I made arrangements to meet up with a friend for breakfast. It turned into a very strange shopping experience.  Apparently …

Workouts…

What have I been up to workout wise? Swimming. Swimming. Swimming. TIny bit of cycle,  and then MORE SWIMMING. My normally dark brown hair is entirely chlorine bleached out.  It looks almost platinum.  A variety of people lately have told me that they “Love my highlights”  and want to know my hair dresser.  I direct …

Take Care Mode

Last night I got home from the gym, and kind of took stock AGAIN with everything that has happened. I am consistently amazed at my current predicament.  We are taught that if we work hard, and are dedicated, we will succeed. I worked SUPER hard.  It’s all here in this blog, lots of workouts, lots …
