8:48 AM: I got the offer from Allstate. So... that means a loooooooooong commute for me, for the chance to be a trainer, gain experience in front of a group, and get out of my current situation. I'd rather work at the other company... I think... There's more long term potential there, and more room for me to grow into the role. 
The plan is to listen to the offer from Allstate and ask for some time to consider. Then call the other company to find out where they are in the process. Risky to say no to Allstate if Munich is still interviewing. I could end up with nothing at all. So much armpit stress sweat. SO. MUCH. 
3:34 PM: Talked to the recruiter about money. It's a decent offer, but with the long drive I would need more incentive. Left messages for Munich. It's crappy timing, seeing as it's late in the afternoon on the Thursday before a holiday weekend.

Hmmm.... I'd have to run 6.82 miles today to reach 100 miles for the month.  Worth it?  We will see.  I feel pretty beat up after last night's run, but my route for tonight would be easier.    I am doing 4 at least.

Sleep......glorious, deep, comatose like sleep....
Autumn C will be torturing my legs today in Lower body Fix extreme.  I felt my glutes whine this morning when I was feeding the cats.  The resistance band Pilates really killed them!! So, if the resistance pilates didn't fry my keister, the leg workout today did.  Holy Hell!!  It was 30 seconds weighted work (i.e.  squats) then 30 seconds of plyometric unweighted action.  The last 4 minutes before the cool down used the bands in a leg press and lateral walk outs.  To say my AZZ is on FIRE is an understatement!!
Session with the Drill Instructor tonight too!

Lower body Fix extreme I had this all typed out then BT ate it :(

30 bicycle crunches

Welp, I've got a core, and it's sore as hell. AND I've done two, count 'em, TWO strength workouts this week. No wonder I'm sore. I like the run/exercise thing. It makes doing those exercises much less tedious. I'd have done today's workout at the park but it's a little windy and I wasn't sure my yoga mat would stay put. As it was, I went to the gym and ran on the 100m track. That was lots of circles!!

I have a ridiculous sunburn on my back from wearing a racer back bike jersey yesterday. It's really really obvious where I can't reach with the sunscreen. I hate using aerosols but I may have to resort to that. Either that or stop wearing tops like that. Or maybe not run and ride at the height of the day! :-P

Gratitudes:
1. Cooler weather for the next couple of days.
2. I'm not in a[...]

Hilariously, last night that same guy was wanting to hang out again. And AGAIN he bailed on me! This time his excuse was that he was late on packing for a trip he's leaving for this morning, so was trying to finish that up and it took longer than expected. Fool me once, blah blah blah. Ain't nobody got time for that. DONE.

Decided to add all my bike commuting here. I've come to a realization that this bike commuting is going to be the majority of my bike training for the triathlon. I use my single speed bike for the ride but I definitely push it. I've found a nice 6.5 mile route that is slightly out of the way but j totally avoid downtown and most of it is on bike paths or 17th avenue which is a designated bike road friendly to cyclists.

Today is a good day!  It's my rest day and I thought about doing a yoga class but didn't want to get too relaxed this afternoon so will take my dog for a nice long hike along the ravine trail instead.  So ya... I'm down another pound this month (slow but moving in the right direction), it's payday (I'm loving the weekly paycheck thing), the day before a long weekend and... I only had to work until 1pm.  And it's sunny and warm.   Can't really ask for too much more!  Maybe a clean house...
Happy Canada Day peeps!  And Pride too!  We have a huge weekend pride celebration going on so that makes the city feel very festive too.

Ride to work today was what i've been waiting for - actually better - except for the construction - school's out so the roads were super quiet. I caught so many favourable lights. It was great. A commuting unicorn day. Happens so rarely i'll just enjoy it while I have it. 
Happy Canada Day everyone! :

3:02am.  That's when my poor little pea brain had enough and decided it wanted to do the hamster wheel thing and go in circles & drive me nuts.  No word from my parents yesterday, but I also have no idea how long it takes to get ultrasound results, so I'll be calling them later. 
We're also off to Vegas today!  A weekend of trying not to melt in the 108* heat (but it's a DRY heat!), walking, eating, drinking & trying to forget absolutely everything at work.  Can that be a goal?  To forget everything?

Simple road / trail run to the tunnel and back. As I did my warm-up I felt tight from the Plyo workout on Tuesday! Good stuff.

Nice uneventful run.
