Left shoulder feels pretty bad today. Icing and Advil helped a bit. Might be some arthritis based on some tests, might be rotator cuff. Annoyed by this!

Slept later than normal - 6ish. Didn't take my allergy pill in the evening. I've still felt tired all day even throughout my workouts I'm thinking how tired I am. Went into the classroom for a few things this morning, made a list of things I need to do at home (make labels and signs), vacuumed the rug, swept the upstairs floors and cleaned a couple of toilets. Exciting Saturday ha ha.

My TdF Fantasy Team RULES. I am doing really really well. I probably won't win a prize in the overall contest, but I'm ranked 297 OVERALL and 26 in the USA. I am pretty good at knowing the strengths and weaknesses of professional cyclists. The yellow jersey has been on my team EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE TOUR. Actually, all 3 major jerseys are currently on my team.

SLEEP. Glorious sleep! How I needed it. Now to get moving on my day.
My house is clean. I am starting my next paper later on--but it isn't due for two weeks. This weeks assignment was busywork filling out a form detailing my articles. The paper due week 6 will ask for more specifics about the literature. I don't have papers weeks 7 or 8 because those are "writing weeks" in which I tie all my work together for week 9's assignment. Week 10 is also pretty light, I have been keeping a log of activities -- a journal of sorts that will be turned in.

Made a big batch of oatmeal cookies for church tomorrow, my chicken salad and some gazpacho.

Phase 3, week 2 of 80-Day Obsession AAA

Took Trek bike to bike shop for a pre-race check up after workouts today. I just had it in before IM Santa Rosa in May for a full tune up. Of course things need fixed, again. My front wheel needs to be rebuilt due to corrosion. EVERYTHING corrodes here since we live by the beach. Always something with this expensive sport.

Spent the night at the ER with mom. Her blood pressure is fluxuating wildly. Thursday it was high, then low, and this morning it was 208/102. Need to monitor over the weekend and try to get it evened out. Fortunately she can do this at home. She went to the ER mostly because she was scared and didn't know what was going on, but now that she knows, I think she'll be able to calm down a little. I got in bed at 4:30 am, so today, I'm going to get her cleaned up, fix a big pot of chicken rice soup and chill out for the rest of the day. I hate hospitals!

In other news I have spent a lot of money over the years in hydration packs.  I have the single barrel waist belt which I hate only because it ALWAYS rides up and I feel as though it's under my boobs instead of my waist.  I have a hand held bottle that I also hate as I feel lopsided carrying it and I really prefer my hands to be free.  When training for the 50K run I purchased the Ultimate Direction Adventure Vesta pack which I actually really like but for a 10K run on a hot day - I don't need that much and my back sweats a lot in it.  It's perfect for when you need more than one bottle, fuel etc eg. long unsupported trail runs - which is what I bought it for.  Then I saw this guy running in a weird little pack and after much investigation I purchased one and it is AWESOME!!  Light, a decent sized bottle.  A little zipper area to store keys and a gel and I don't even feel it on me.  No chest strap.  I do have to wear a running shirt with s[...]

I have a mini sprint coming up tomorrow. I signed up for it when i waa starting to feel better last month. Right before the second serum screw up. It is sad that I am pretty sure I can't do it. I am going to pack up and go, though. I waffle between sad, determined, depressed and mad.

We were going to go for a hike today but it rained all day yesterday so most likely won’t go. May try to sneak out for a walk this morning before anyone gets up.

Temps will be in the high 60’s today so thinking there will be no sandbar today.

Lower fix: it's been a while and i found some of the moves tough - i only swapped out the weights once but it was definitely a mental struggle to keep going on a few of the moves. Felicity came home from her friend's house half way through so i took a mini break to check on her

So this has been a rather meager week of workouts. Lots of socializing and not a lot of exercising. I have been working the LoseIt plan though, so I don't think I have done too poorly in regard to calorie/food intake and consumption. My stomach/intestines/etc seem to have recovered from whatever was freaking them out. I am eating carefully. 
Hamilton was again amazing. Of course. If you have the opportunity to see it when it comes to your city, go! Read a little bit about the history and story first, so you don't get lost in some of the rapid fire quick moving lyrics. I was completely bewildered the first time I saw the show. Last night, it was all I could do to KEEP FROM CLIMBING UP ON STAGE and joining in!  Unfortunately, I'm not the dancer I once was, and those of you who know me know I have never been a talented singer. So, while wildly entertaining for me, my performance would have been a bit of a bummer for the audience, that's for sure.
