Hubby had a scheduled call at 7am this morning ?! which meant I walked the dogs instead of going for a run.  Worked this morning and doing last minute prep for my exam.  Giving in to the fact that I will do no exercise until Monday at the earliest - basically just focus on writing this exam tomorrow til Sunday.  I booked a hotel room so I'd have no distractions.  I don't understand how they expect us to write 3 reports within 48 hours when all of the assignments for this certification have taken at least a week to complete.  And no preview of the topics.  I'm a thinker - I like to mull things over prior to attacking but there's no time for that.  Time will tell.  Looking forward to it being done.

It's weird for me to have 3 runs scheduled with friends this week - especially in Covid times!   I hope I don't regret this.

Over the past 2 months I've been gaining a few pounds and I attribute that to the increased difficulty of the bike workouts and consistent ST. Been holding at 20±1% body fat and 55±1% water content based on Tanita weight scale.

New development from my realtor - she got an early head's up on a patio home in the first neighborhood I was excited about. It's in a division that has clusters of 4-5 attached homes and this one is an end unit, so only one shared wall. Fenced back yard and VERY updated kitchen (my heart). It's a realtor's home which I think is a good thing? Interested to learn if "patio home" here means all outside maintenance as it does in other areas. The listing price is quite a bit lower than what I've been looking at so it may not be 100% great inside? But in my head that's perfectly OK - I'm much more open to doing renovations over time if I get a place on the lower end of my range. Supposed to be listed in 2 days.
Also yesterday I moderated a workshop for our national Public Affairs team (Thriving in a virtual workplace!), and immediately after, my old boss from Oklahoma sent an email with the subject line "Please come home...!" with all kids of praise on how the event went and how much she[...]

80 Day Obsession day 40! Cardio core. On the deck of the cottage. Pretty sweaty as usual. Sliders worked well. Way easier than at home but I scratched them up pretty good.

7:42am: First, just to comment on the news -- yes, I'm pretty happy with the choice of Kamala for VP. Watched her acceptance speech yesterday and it gave me goosebumps. Biden certainly wasn't my choice, but the addition of Kamala really gets me excited about this ticket. Just imagine being able to go DAYS and maybe even WEEKS (!!) without thinking about what the administration is up to. Hardworking, accountable, smart and BORING. That's what I'm hoping for.
On another topic, while I'm not entirely sure how I feel about MLB being back in business (it seems to me that all those covid tests could be put to better use), baseball on TV has been a godsend for me because I'd almost always rather watch the Sox game than politics. And so, my diet of politics has decreased and I'm happier for it (though I do put on Rachel Maddow occasionally because I <3 her).
I"m still enjoying my morning walks, though I might be less happy once the sunrise is later and I'm out before it. And I figured[...]

Only need 13.5 miles to finish the Epic-in-Place mileage! Might try to get it today, riding with kids, and adding some on the river trail if I need extra. 
The rib I actually think I cracked is feeling great this week, but now my bottom rib is super sore where the cartilage meets the bone in the front. This happened the last time I broke a rib too - the broken one healed up, then the cartilage on the bottom ones hurt for another month or two. Hopefully this chills out a bit, I was definitely having to ride gently because of it yesterday! 
Nice to be up in Winter Park, although they're paving the road in front of our place so it's a construction zone. Ugh. Last year it was the bridge, this year it's the road.
