Saint Charles,IL 

Flight was slightly delayed, we landed late in San Fran, picked up our car and drove to Yosemite. FOUR HOURS. I had no idea it was that far! We missed the first wine talk with Cathy Corison. We did get an In and Out burger, though, and that was good.

Went after work, with Chris. I have no independent recollection of this workout, I only know that my hips and legs and general body were ALREADY SORE when we landed in California. So.

Hey! Guess what? Kevin peed on all of the drapes! Yay! Guess who has 2 thumbs and gets to wash drapes in Nature's Miracle?

 

Me. Me. That's who.

So, today I spent $161.50 on calming cat hormone diffusers and collars. Couldn't hurt, might help. My wallet has been feeling too heavy lately anyway.

In Wheaton, with Dara, but without her sister. I ran. It was a tornado, 3 rotations around the room, so not a super fast tornado. Started on treadmills. Our workout was nothing like what's posted on Reddit. So.

Hope the cats manage to get along better today. Yesterday they were not great. Everyone was crabby and Freddie was OFF THE WALL. Like BOUNCING OFF THE WALL. He's not totally familiar with this "house" thing and he tried running out the door when the trick or treaters came. We had to lock him in the bedroom again. Poor thing. Part of me feels guilty for keeping him (against his will?) but I know it's way better for him to have a home and a family than it is for him to be wandering around in traffic and in random people's back yards.

Kevin has been an asshole. And when Molly sees asshole behavior she likes to jump right in and join! She's better by herself. Kevin is a bad influence.

Freddie is back behind the curtain today, and we're ordering another baby gate for his wing of the house. A set back for sure, but we have the room, so we may as well use it to keep these cats separated until they're ready for prime time.


Major setbacks all over the place. And we're leaving on vacation Wednesday. Kevin and Molly got locked in our bedroom by accident. One of them (Kevin) peed all over Chris' side of the bed and his towel and made a poo in his jeans. Like clandestinely INSIDE his jeans. *sigh*


In other news, dinner with the Demerly clan was very nice.

The last hell week class. To be honest, I don't think Hell Week was that hard. It was just 5 classes that I would have taken under normal non-hell week circumstances. Every day is different @ OTF anyway, so I don't see what the big deal is. It was fairly easy to meet the minimum requirements. If they would have required 7/8 or even 6/8 that would have been harder... but I think that would have also encouraged people who aren't up to it yet to try something that could injure them. People who aren't either chronically injured (like me) or super in tune with their bodies (like most endurance athletes/triathletes) could get hurt pushing themselves to do something they're not ready to do. Not everyone has a governor like I do. So. I don't know. I'll do it again and maybe next time aim for 6/8. I do like my recovery days, you know.

This was a Random Tornado Started on Rowers

Row: 90 sec for distance
Floor: 90 sec of either pop jacks, skaters lunge, bench sit ups with jump, bridge low rows, bicycles, plank jacks, hands to elbows, bench hop over or running man
Tread: 90 sec run for distance with varying random inclines.

Every 90 seconds we switched and then got our random exercise and/or incline.


 

Well, we all know Poltergeist is a movie. So I think I have verified the Hell Week Theme. Just in time for it to be over.
