The first test of the Specialized Power saddle was done last night, and I'm not sure. One of the bad parts is that I was in my real old bibs, so it was kind of hard to tell.  I have a longer ride on Saturday that I hope to do with RBE, so I'll see then.  Either way, I'm pretty sure the Romin is off the table.  I know lots of folks love it, but it was tough to get comfy on it for me. I'll probably be lifting the saddle a bit to get it up to where the ISM was.

Have a meeting this afternoon at the nursing facility with the MIL's caregivers and their recommendations for moving forward. After that, we're loading the cats in the motorhome and heading out on our trip. Weather is supposed to be darn near perfect with warm sunny days and cool clear nights. Really looking forward to getting some miles on the bike!

My plan was to get up and run early so I could do some PiYo at lunch.  However, my body completely disagreed with that plan and refused to get up cause it was sore all over.  So, looks like it will be another super scorcher day and I will be hitting the treadmill at lunch and doing PiYo after we get back from church tonight.
Make it through 3 more days and my partner in crime is back from vacation.  Give me strength!!

Legs were tired this morning so no running, just a bit of stretching. Lunch today with my department to celebrate my 25 year anniversary at the company. Where did the time go? Seriously, even though most days time seems to stand still, it's crazy to think that 2 1/2 decades have passed. So many changes in technology in that span.

Swim team party last night for the kids. They had fun. They took probably about 30 min of the time to pass out awards which was kind of boring if your kid is not winning an award but good for those kids. Proud of DD - she did not win an award but sat nicely through the whole deal and then on her own found a little girl her age who won an award and told her congratulations, that she swam really well and deserved it. WOW! Proud of that good sportsmanship! 
Drama here this morning. OMG - the dogs across the street who are left outside all the time when the owners are gone with nothing but the electric fence to be responsible for them were attacking a white cat in their front yard. We have a white cat. I am screaming at them to stop from our house and they are pulling it, biting it, the cat is all bloody and limp. It was awful and the whole time the kids are watching through the window, screaming, crying, bawling because we all think it is our sweet Snowball. I am h[...]

Ran 5 miles this morning but Garmin Connect refused to sync. This happens about 9 times out of 10 and I have to manually "send" the information. Then this morning it wanted to update the software, ain't nobody got time for that.  Maybe the software will update and it will magically sync some time this morning. 
My Dad posted this photo on FB this morning - happy 42nd anniversary to my parents! And more than one person commented how much I look like my mother in this pic. What a compliment :

No riding today. POP is 60% this afternoon. I have no desire to be stuck at work with my bike in case the heavens do open up. Listened to my e-book on the commute this morning. Plan to ride the trainer tonight! 
We're heading to Nova Scotia soon. We've rented a cottage at the same place as last year and booked hotels for the car trip broken into 2.5 days. My parents are coming with us so that will be good. They've never been to the east coast and are pretty excited about it! 
Time to start a packing list and planning for the supplies we required to travel with a 2-year old.

No run this morning. It looks like the weather may become more tolerable now, with the screaming howling rain storms slowing down. No one will be sad about that.  And in other trainng news, I have the Romin in the van for a stop at Real Bikes this evening.  Time for round two of the saddle testing.  Next up, the Specialized Power:

Last night was episode 2 of BIP, and man, what a letdown.  Really, the best we got was "Clare talking to a crab".  Then a first date that was tantric yoga.  What has happened to helicopters and carriages?  I want romance, not 2 sweaty people rubbing each other awkwardly.  These immature hot people are all living in the same house with an open bar, so far as we can tell.  So why leave and go on a loser date when you can stay at the resort and drink on ABC's dime while getting to know everyone?  Unless you have to leave to go to the hospital for an IV of what we can only hope is antibiotics of some nature[...]
