Training should be done at my time at 330 or before since it is Mountain time (thus the 6am start). After Chris gets off at 5 we want to go for a longer ride on the bikes.

Gorgeous ride last night! Got to the top of Evergreen Mountain as the sun slipped behind Mt. Evans (pics below).
Have to spend most of the day driving to Fairplay to pick up frames. I'd put it off but I need to ship off a painting to a show tomorrow and need the frame for it! Then I suppose I'll drop my bike off to get the brakes fixed. It's so nice out that I'm tempted to just ride it, but I don't want to damage my rotors.
Back to better eating today. No junk, more plants.
FOOD:
B - apple, hunk of cheddar, coffee

Klutz move of the day:  Trimming my toenails and cut the big toe on my right foot.  Bled like a stuck pig, no doubt enhanced by my Warfarin.  Bandaged it up and hope it doesn't soak through my sock before it stops.  Still planning to run the Ringling Bridge after work.
Home computer monitor went belly up this morning.  Big pop and a lot of smoke.  Visit to Best Buy now on the agenda for later today.

7:46am:  Back in the office.  Sigh.  I so love my off days.
The trainer beatdown of yesterday was rescheduled for today since yesterday was too beautiful to not be outside.
I've been having massive trouble falling asleep recently; you know that when I can comment on the Jimmy Fallon or Seth Meyers show, things are not good.  Not sure what's going on, but I think I just might need to unplug more before hitting the sheets.  Turn off the devices and the TV and all that.

Can't catch a break in the sleep department.  Didn't have to be at work until 8 this morning, so I thought, "Great!  I can 'sleep in' an extra 15 minutes and work out an extra 15 minutes."  So of course the battery in our guest room smoke detector decided to die at 3:55am.    Tried to ignore the chirping to no avail.  Travis and I changed the thing and then of course I wasn't able to fall back asleep, so I just laid in bed until my alarm went off.  At least it didn't wake Chase up.
Have to be at work a little later this afternoon than usual (hence the late arrival), but I'm hoping to get home early enough to take him for another walk before dinner since it will be another beautiful day.  Also...how is it already March 31?  Where did this month go?!

Every year in January, the company I work for makes some changes. Those changes may be personel related, they may be locational, they may be core business, but it is the one constant.  Change.  And every year, I examine the changes and ponder the affects that the change may have on me, in an effort to figure out my future with the company.  In the past, I have looked, but not changed, simply due to the fact that the change would not be negative enough to warrant such an action. This year, things were quiet for the first 3 months of the year. I should have known the other shoe would drop sooner or later. This one has the potential to be quite negative and costly, or I might be able to bend it to my advantage.  Again a wait and see outlook will be best.  I thought this out last night and wanted to write it down, so here goes. In my almost 16 years with the company I have had: 6 different supervisors through 8 seperate changes. Yes, some I've had more than once[...]

i'm back.  nice "naked"run this morning.  a little faster than i would have guessed but that explains why my legs feel like they do.  That and officiating all weekend.  That always makes my legs feel worse than a 20 miler.

We were held indoors at the pool after practice b/c there is an active shooter on the loose who escaped from Fairfax hospital (the pool is just down the street).  Finally a few of us decided to risk it since our commute doesn't take us past the hospital.  Just a little something to make the morning exciting....
so, there is nothing majorly wrong with my knee (as I predicted), but now I have to get an MRI on my foot as the doctor wonders if maybe I have a stress fracture?  Awesome.  I swear, if it's not one thing, it's something else.

Meeting with the foot doc this morning, then preadmission testing for toe surgery next week. Wow, it's so hard to believe that tax season will be over next week and I'll be moving on to other, more fun things (NOT counting the surgery here, but the sleep will be nice!) We're down to single digits. 9 days!

Hip is bothering me again. Actually, I think it's my ITB since the pain starts at my hip flexor and hip and works its way down to my knee. I'm guessing it was caused by the lousy THREE minutes of core work I did on Saturday. I mostly don't feel it during the day, but it really bothers me when I lie down. I need to get out in the woods again and get toughened up!
