Speed Kills.

THROWBACK THURSDAY!
The outfit I was wearing a couple of days ago whilst atop that rented mule was by Danskin (like the triathlon!) and was, apparently, sweeping the nation.
You see me sporting it a couple of days ago below.
Here you see our very own Michele (trainergirlmick, on the R) and her friend Barbie wearing the very same combo, even down to the blue Keds on Barbie!:

And my sister wearing it... some years later.

Obviously I have always been associated with the pinnacle of fashion. I've got my finger on the pulse of modern style. Or... possibly... not.

Dare I even whisper the words... it wasn't THAT bad today???  No, I really shouldn't have done that because now somehow the universe will conspire to get it back to him that he didn't actually kill me today... Dangit, I've totally just screwed myself!

1 minute squats
1 minute crunches

I'm going to be tired later.  
The completely incompetent person I've had to deal with at work has been utterly frustrating - mostly because she's slowly realizing that she can't use ME to g[...]

Needed to decompress. Decided to just spend the rest of the day alone and catch up on my shows and do a lot of burpees!! My patience and tolerance are gone. It's hard for me to spend so much time with someone that is so superficial, self important with a huge sense of false self confidence! Shallow. Shallow.

Ohhmmmmmmm!!!

Aspen's got an early release from school today, so I'm gonna paint then go get her - no bike ride for me. Hopefully I can sneak in a run or some yoga when Nate gets home tonight. 
I totally bribed Aspen to go for a bike ride when I got her from school. I figured since Owen wasn't home, we could go ride some easy trails. She did really awesome, but there's always a lot of whining when any hills are involved. Next time, I will bring one of her friends along so she doesn't whine at me so much! I asked her what her favorite part was, and she said "Riding over the bumpy parts!" 

Me and my girl:

wednesday morning strength and run.  Wednesday's focus is core and balance muscles in the lower body and corrective on the upper body.  Run was good.  
goal is to swim either at lunch or after work.  yesterday's swim didn't happen.
Terah made some refrigerator oatmeal w/ greek yogurt, frozen fruit, some honey and chia seeds.  had that for breakfast.  that was good and dense, so didn't each a lot.  that may be the new breakfast food at the house.  She also found some new smoothie recipes that save for several days, again involving chia seeds.  the boys may use that as recovery drink after swim practice.  we may all start sprouting at some point.  Last new thing was black bean brownies.  Made with dark chocolate.  REALLY good.   
got the swim done.  last 25 of kick the right calf cramped up.  that explains the 52 second 25 :)  Otherwise a good swim

plank w/ hip abductions x 20

A new path

I cannot get motivated for this 50k this weekend. Have not registered and almost have no desire. I think it's because I feel like I "need" to do it to have one less day with K's parents who are visiting until Tuesday. Or because I don't know anyone going and it's a 2.5hr drive the morning of and it will be 80 degrees. I had so much trouble with the hot races last year; I really don't want to do that to my body. Ugh. But, it's a local guy, only costs $30, and the money goes to the trails.
There is a 50mi in FL on Sat (sold out) that I would have rather done as it was a really neat location. Oh well.

I think I won't go to the race, I've been wanting a break, and if I make myself do it, I might burn myself out for any other potential races that may present themselves in the next couple of months.
So the alternative? Stay home and cook while K takes his parents to the Quarter during the day-potentially making me look like an -or go and it's another full day with them. Sigh.

Still in a lot of pain rolling in bed and getting out of bed. Seems like I should be healing faster than this if I just have a bruised rib.

Left leg is flaring up. I actually think it's sciatica, my entire leg has been either in a bit of pain or just numb all day. Piriformis is going to get worked on tonight...

Have plans already to travel to Oklahoma City next week- my new boss called and she is having pregnancy complications so cannot travel by doctors orders. So instead of her plan to meet me in Kansas on Thursday she said they will give me a company car to drive down there and meet her team (including another newbie), have lunch, and get back by 5 p.m. SWEET!
