I'm beat! I didn't think this was going to be so tiring, but it really was. Fortunately, I'm heading out to have sushi with a friend, then I have nothing planned for the rest of the weekend!!

Had a big media event at work yesterday and once again, my co-worker kind of dropped the ball on a number of things. I hate to say it, because I've tried to have his back and support him regardless of his lack of abilities, but he is just not the best at his job. I don't know how many times his boss (who is my VP) has to have "discussions" with him on super important elements of his role, but it's becoming more and more of an eye-roll situation. My boss is especially frustrated, but knows that MY team plays clean up time after time after time and has given us all of the credit (and not my co-worker, whose job it was) for yesterday not being a disaster. 
ANYWHO, I busted out my blue blazer yesterday and got a ton of compliments - that is fun! It's one of those items though, that you can't wear very often because it's so noticeable. My team below! Minus the guy I was talking about - I didn't realize it at the time but it was more than fitting that we didn't even think about pull[...]

Today's plan of attack includes Hammer & Chisel :  Hammer Conditioning.  OMG, I am a hot and dripping mess after that workout.  It's a KILLER!!  There's supposed to be a 15 minute leg hammer video, but it's part of the deluxe set that I don't have.
It's supposed to rain, may be on the trainer...but after the H&C will be a whole lot of housework.

3/4 of a bushel of peaches cut up and frozen yesterday. I got 4 miles in walking in my kitchen. My kitchen is a total of 10 x 10. The floor is about 5 x 5. I am surprised there are no ruts worn into the wood floors yet!
I may buy a new bike today :)

Really hard to wake up for swim today. I did manage to get up. Didn't upload because I am filling in for someone who works for the big boss. Today promises to be busy! And i am behind on my own work due to nothing other than being lazy ... i hate that.
I also fully intended to bike to work this morning but as mentioned i am filling for someone today and it's actually really cute but is taking quite bit of time in the morning but we are coaching felicity to ride her little training wheel bike to daycare. All that to mean i was way behind schedule.
But on the bike thing, it is super duper cute. Our friends gave us their daughter's old bike which is a purple tinkerbell bike with streamers and it is a two wheeler with training wheels. We've been trying to encourage her pedal around in the driveway but she tries for about three seconds and gives up. So Darren last week rigged up some bungee cords on the front to help pull her along.
On Wednesday, I didn't have the metropass (she lov[...]

Phone interview went great today. I have been scheduled for an in person interview on Tuesday. (WOOT!
It rained last night so I didn't get to go out to test drive my orthotics. Tonight I have a manicure appt and a neighborhood party. Tomorrow riding. Maybe I can fit in a quick test spin after the manicure and before the party. I kind of want to bow out of the party bc riding tomorrow is going to be long and tiring. 
What a terrible life I lead. Haha.

Skipped the run again this morning after the swim. The top of my foot is still swollen and very tender. It hurts to wear any shoe that touches the top of my foot. One more day of rest. I am going to try a lunch time easy bike ride outside.

Spent our first night in the new house last night. Felt great to sleep in our own bed (though the guest bed at my parents' house is certainly plenty comfortable too) and wake up in our own house! And today marks 1 month since Bennett arrived! Went exactly as fast as knew it would given everything going on. Such an awesome little guy!

No workouts on tap today.
I'm seeing the PT guy today.  I was planning to make an appointment anyway and the whole calf thing moved it a day or two early.  Calf seems fine with minor irritation today but still good to nip this in the bud.
VENT:  On Monday, I asked for if the training plan for this weekend (and next week) is ready?  Could I please have it.  Yesterday, can I please have the plan for this weekend?  Today, text, can I please have the plan for this weekend?  ARG!
VENT UPDATE : OK, so it's 3pm and I have the training plan for the next week but she has not commented on anything that I wrote about my training.

After 3 decent runs in a row, I feel better than usual.  Yay, small victories.   I am optimistic about tomorrow's last run.  The weather looks SO great!  Just need to decide which route option is best.
