I had five days off

Monday, July 06, 2015      18 comments

Of those five days, two were active... a run, and strength training. One was busy with yard work and appointments, not as active, though. Which leaves two when I was a slug, feeling unwell, and sleeping a lot. So now we're back to Monda... Read more

So, I had this plan to go ride the Firecracker 50 in Seward this morning. I had a bike-mate lined up. We had agreed to meet at a spot and drive in tandem, so nobody would get lost and we'd arrive same time. But when I woke up... the swo... Read more

Friday twenty minutes

Since it is the observed Holiday at work, and I already had two vacation days, I'm well rested. Slept in after getting up to take the thyroid pill... until the sunlight woke me. Fitbit reports that I got in excess of 7 hours three times this w... Read more

Left shoulder fried

While working out this morning with the Boy Wonder, I noticed my left side arm exercises I was breaking form on the third set. And with only 5 pound weights. Then I remembered... that's the side on which I carried the BIG cat carrier (used to ... Read more

Prisoner is smug at the moment

He's no longer in the denial of remaining outside when he wants to come in, just because Rubia is there, even going nose to nose with her. He consents to sit on my lap, but only until she jumps up to join the party. I keep telling him he's my ... Read more

It's unpredictable. You never know just what will get you started or re-started. It could be a T-shirt you chose to put on today. It was last Saturday morning. I went into the grocery store wearing my "Runners for Boston" t-shirt. A lad... Read more

Back to work for me. I imagine the house filled with the vocal mews of Rubia. She does eventually get bored and naps, but when I'm moving about the house, she's following me around. Right now she's on my lap and very curious about this comput... Read more

For one thing, the cat whisperer at work, the one who finds homes for needy kittens hit me up with cute photos, and these three young ladies ended up donating a new feline to my house. Read more

With my new-found reassessment of goals, giving myself permission to skip age group nationals, canceling 3 days of vacation around them so my outage will only be six days, not 9... and getting some more sleep... I'm still meeting with that perso... Read more

Reinvention, rediscovery

This morning in the early hours, I stepped out on my deck. Yes, it's overwhelming to see the weeds out there. BUT... I remember a year in which I was doing much what I'm doing now... trying to find ME. One of my "little things" I incorporated... Read more

None of us are immortal

Wednesday, June 24, 2015      28 comments

A comment from my brother on yesterday's blog "I don't have so many sisters that I can afford to lose one prematurely" was somewhat disturbing. Because nobody has so many folks they care about they want to let them go prematurely. But I'm at a... Read more

Roll back... back... back... to March 13, 2010... the day the Jenny Craig people tossed the confetti over me. Here's my blog from that day...

It starts with self-assessment: where am I NOW, today?

A year ago today... a year ago right now, I was in the transition area, preparing to embark on my first Olympic distance triathlon. It was an epic adventure. I flew high after that for MONTHS... I made "in real life" active friends... I contin... Read more
