Monday - Recovery day. I was up by 5, per usual, tried to sleep in didn't happen. Massage at 9 a.m. and that was great. Got a quite a few household chores done after and then crashed for a nap for a few hours.
The picture of the day is a video of Jax destroying Harold the Hedge Hog. I've repaired this guy numerous times. This time I already had the sewing machine out so I gave his holes some serious stitches. Jax was bummed. Click the link... not sure if it will work.
Hope this works!
Tuesday - Back to work, I attempted to run. That was a bad idea. I made 2.5 miles, I probably could have gone more, I partly didn't want to and partly was just tired.
Couldn't find any picture worth sharing...
Wednesday - Hills with Ro was really welcome! I totally forgot to start my space watch till we 3 miles into our workout. Whoops. Gotta get back into the routine! I decided I wanted to take a ride and went down to the beach to see the fun runners. Always a good time!
|What front of the pack runner strides look like....|
Thursday - 5 easy miles with Faith. Easy miles, that always cracks me up. Miles are miles? or no?
Nothing worth sharing from the picture roll.
Friday - I decided to bike into work, biking home sucked, I hadn't thought that far forward. Also could have been the 13.5% beer I didn't realize was a 13.5% beer I had on Thursday night. I had another nap when I got home Friday.
Love their sneering faces.
Saturday - Trail maintenance at Wahaneeta for my clubs upcoming trail race. It was rainy and generally disagreeable weather, however nice to be outside and lopping off branches. I let the guys know I'm not allowed to operate the weed whacker at home so there is probably a reason they should let me use the lopper instead of the weed whacker. I had a several hour long nap later on in the day. It never stopped spitting/misting rain.
Nothign worth sharing, or the dog sneer was from Sat....
Sunday - Back to the track! It has been a year since I've been back to running, Pretty good way to celebrate with a track workout. We did a 20+ bike ride after. I was spent after this. Happy to be heading home and I had a very very short nap in the late afternoon. I think I'm finally caught up on sleeping and feeling recovered. Although I really don't know what recovered actually means. That bike ride whomped me like a bike ride never has. Probably the track workout before. And I even shorted that!
|Grace - killed the workout (seriously) with her injured paw!|
|Added one more for the bike ride|
I was wiped out after all this
Feet: an impressive 26
Saddle: 78 (hard to keep me off my bike)
I started back planking again, 30 seconds front rotate to right 30 seconds rotate to front 30 seconds rotate to left 30 seconds or some version of that for 00:03:30. I'm less bored with rotating through versus holding a plank. I'm sure it is still beneficial.
I finished "The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead, I wasn't impressed or moved by it. I couldn't fall in love with the characters, this is what really does it for me for a novel. Cora would start to tug at my heart strings then Whitehead would flip flop to another story. I liked his play on the Underground Railroad as being an actual railroad underground, that was quite inventive and interesting. I think this could be a great story of escaping from slavery, unfortunately, it wasn't for me.
I started James Joyce "Ulysses", I've tried to read this hard cover, not much success. We shall see if listening to the poetic Joyce helps. So far, not so much... I loved "Dubliners" maybe I need a good long drive to get into the flow of this classic?
Made a few inches worth of progress on the latest baby sweater and found some buttons for the ones needing buttons. Dave wanted me to watch a movie with him, knitting is how I get through focusing on movies. It was a good movie, what was it? I have no idea, some Detective Noir or something noir, a good mystery, well done.
Beth, short and sweet, the update, not me!
