Day 3

Old man walking. Put some Mg12 (magnesium oil) on my left shoulder this morning. Yeah. I'm that old. Resorting to lotions for sore body parts. Given the nature of the pain probably something more serious. Will just have to monitor that and the Achilles. I need to get more sleep and drop a few pounds which means laying off the beer and wine (boo hoo hoo...). Really need to get back into yoga on Thursdays now that school is starting up but, will be in Asheville Thursday. All in all... another tough one. It hasn't gotten easier yet. But, I'm starting to see the training graph stacking up. Getting this first week in complete will be a nice box to check. I like checking boxes.

Another race tomorrow that was on my "schedule" that I am not prepared to do so I will not be racing. No triathlons for me this season. Maybe I needed a break, maybe its over, who knows?  All I know is that I get really cranky around days I was planning on racing...

75 pounds of tomatoes turned into pasta sauce. Roasted red pepper roasted garlic pasta sauce, to be exact. All was from a local garden. Not mine, but better than store bought. I wasked 3 miles in my teeny kitchen. My tootsies are sore.

I took today off from work. I may do the same thing next Friday :-)  I plan to run later this morning and play it by ear from there. I have a few more days that Kevin do play with and I have found that taking at least one vacation day during peak training works well for me.  This is "hell week" for me and next week backs of a tad.  Two more big weekends.

So our last Friday hopefully not being in the new house. Waiting on the closing disclosure and then we wait a mandatory 3 days until we can close. Still hopeful for Tuesday/Wed. Movers are to come on Thursday and we couldn't get Best Buy to do the appliances before the 7th after the holiday but I am taking the 1st through the 5th off work. I can handle not having a fridge, freezer, and washer and dryer until then if I can just be in the house and be more comfortable.

The apartment we are in has a couple bites to take over Chris's lease. That is promising. And then we have yet to hear from the Property manager but I have another referral to another property manager if this doesn't work out soon. At least we are paid up through the 19th and if it doesn't rent before the 19th Partners (the property manager) will pick up the bill. I refuse to pay rent or mortgage for this guy who backed out. Just waiting... and waiting...

We redid Gus's bandage last night since he got at it in the [...]

Event was great last night but no broadcast media showed up. I was really disappointed, but everyone seems thrilled with the coverage we DID get, so I guess it's OK. 
Taking the afternoon off to get yesterday's run in, then attend a swanky charity event with my co-workers tonight.

Today I'm back to an easy jog, just 2 miles.  I ran a tiny bit at the gym the other day and it was fine.  I am glad I am not suffering too much post-marathon because I want to start training again for Ragnar.  I think I can definitely stick to the training plan I put together, which follows Hal's advice for recovery.

Toe felt fine getting up and out on the bike after last night's run. Still some stiffness and achiness, but no defined pain, so I'm good to go for Bulldog 25K tomorrow (esp. with a full 24 hours to rest).

No training today, I think the attic stairs and running out to the shed with DD2's final stuff should suffice. And I can get to the bikes now that the garage is cleared out, so tomoorow morning, if the weather holds...
Lots of pictures of our California trip from earlier this year have been popping up on my IG recently. I keep finding different ones that each remind me of another part of the trip that hit me. Either a moment standing in a forest, or on a beach, or even in a campground simply making coffee. Parts of it were surreal, parts of it were moving, all of it was enjoyable. It is a blessed person who realizes just how blessed they are. And I am indeed blessed.
