Virtually no pain this morning. Kept spin session short (both for the foot and dehydration). A little stiffness after but no pain to speak of.

Slept much better last night but still some lingering back pain. Feeling old for sure haha.
And a bit of drama at work. One of my work besties who I mentioned earlier is applying for a different role in the company was *suddenly* given a promotion on our team. Which is hilarious, because the company preaches that we don't do "promotions in place" - that there has to be an actual head count opening to be promoted. But he is the 2nd person on our team to be handed a promotion without asking, applying, interviewing or even knowing that was a possibility (his boss was the other one). Whenever it comes up, our leaders swear up and down that it's because the role's responsibilities have changed so much it warrants a new title. But that's such a loose justification - you could say that about any role because everyone's work ebbs and flows depending on the needs of the business. It's an OBVIOUS knee jerk reaction to keep him from leaving when they found out he applied for a role on another[...]

My husband was mad at me for going out to run/wog last night with the bad AQI.  Of course on Strava I see that all my runner friends were out, too.  We are an odd bunch.

Today is my oldest son's 21st birthday!  He made it and is finally legal, whew!  He's working 8am-5pm at marching band camp and it is extremely hot outside.  He had to take some extra steroids last night (adrenal insufficiency in the heat needs extra...) and he's planning taking extra at lunch today to.  Smart move.  We were going to take him out to dinner and a bar afterwards tonight but he's so tired from band camp he wants to stay home and watch a movie.  I ordered a large balloon bouquet that should be delivered on the band field any minute now.  
Also feeling like a true Florida girl.  The heat didn't bother me ONE BIT during my run today.

Rest day.
My shot arm hurts and I have the bruised feeling in my armpit again when I put on deodorant this morning so maybe not a placebo?  I guess I'll find out in six months or so.

5:58am: Friday! I've been doing the "Crush Your Core" workout at lunch again (though not logging it because I keep forgetting) and between that and doing some other core-type work, I'm sore. A good sore, though. 
Probably an easy ride today -- my "long" ride (only 60 minutes) is tomorrow -- and maybe some strength. Have I mentioned that I REALLY need to start doing strength workouts again?? While I have absolutely NO regrets about swapping Peloton in and Orange Theory out, when I would do OTF I'd be forced to lift. Peloton has GREAT strength classes, but there's no one there telling me that I HAVE to do it.
On a side note, the author of today's quote -- James Clear -- has a book called "Atomic Habits" which I HIGHLY recommend if you're looking to make or break a habit. It's clear, actionable, very readable and back by science.

Wow, I love the new bike carrier! I just hope I get my bike soon so I can use it. lol! I am glad we spent the extra money for a solid carrier. I picked it up yesterday then went shopping and bought a couple of riding dresses. When I am up at the lake, I can put my swimsuit on under my dress and stop for a swim. Fred & I are talking about doing Tour de Donut in late August. I'd love to do the Amish Lands & Lakes tour again in northern Indiana, but it's this weekend so it's not going to happen. That was one of my favorite bike tours in spite of the fact that I got FOUR flat tires that weekend. It turns out that we parked the rv under a tree with thorns. Whoops. :)

Heading to the dentist this morning for a bone scan to see if I am a candidate for an implant then to the pool store. I'll get into something outside this afternoon. I've been a little lazy this week after my initial spurt of energy early in the week.

Officially finished #MBF program on BeachBody yesterday. I definitely enjoyed - it uses a few approaches that were new to me that were cool try like AMRAP, asymmetrical lifting, and EMOM. I loved the 30 minute format and was dripping sweat with so many of the workouts. The BOD ropes are cool but do take some time to get used and coordination was still challenging at the end. If i wasn't jumping back into HIM training i would be picking up the Advanced MBF in a couple of days (after a few of rest) and trying that. But maybe in the Fall.
