Roy and I parked at the Everett Mall and biked out to downtown Lynnwood. I went ahead of him and really focused on full circles, and tried to keep my HR at at least 70%. I felt like I really pushed it, even if the speed doesn't look like it. It felt good. Did have to stop and take a call from my insurance company.

Coaching! All my people who showed up were walkers who want to run, so we did walk/brisk walk tonight. I was sure hoping for more people, but some chickened out so I had only three. Two more are supposed to come next week, so five is good. I was just hoping for a few more.

But it's all good! We have to start somewhere. So now I have three running clients and three online clients!

Run #2

Ran around the neighborhood. Nothin' special.

Ran to Starbucks this morning. My back is KILLING me lately, but running actually seems to help. I start out feeling wonky, but do better by the time I get about half mile into it.

Saw Patty at the coffee shop. She is the person who hired me for my first teaching job and I LOVE her! She's just a neat, vivacious lady!

Did a full body strength workout with Roy. I'm not loving it, because the lower body stuff is kind of weenie, but then I watch him struggle with it and I know I shouldn't increase it quite yet. I think I'll change it up next week to working more with bands.

I had actually hoped to do the full 70, but the flat tire nixed that because I just didn't have time for the entire route. It was hilly but BEAUTIFUL. And by hilly I mean f'ing hilly made me want to cry a few times at the end hilly. But I survived!

Had serious back spasms the last 10 miles. I hope that doesn't happen on Troika! I mean they were KILLING me (hence the desire to cry on the hills...getting out of the seat was painful).

I was supposed to run 30 minutes but didn't realize 15 was up until I heard the second mile beep on my Garmin. My legs felt great, so I'm feeling confident about finishing Troika without issues.

Swam in the lake today in a triangle fashion trying to get in a full 1.2 miles. Paused a little to tread water a bit and check in with Roy. feeling good on the time (for me). Wish I were faster, but if wishes were horses it would be a really interesting triathlon.

  • 20m

Worked through the strength routine I was going to take my first client through. Of course she bagged out on me the morning we were supposed to meet. Thanks for that! Very nice. Oh well...I didn't want to take on anyone south of Lynnwood anyhow, but it was disappointing. (Not to mention, I put a LOT of time into setting up for her.)

  • Wii Fit

Such a slow pace because I walked with Roy to his parents house, then dropped him off and did a six mile run. Then we walked back after visiting a bit. Worked out great for me. I did not have to spend as much time there, and he was able to get parent time in, plus we both got exercise in. And I did get to spend SOME time there.

  • Kayaking
  • 2h 10m 47s

What an AWESOME paddle! We went out on the slough and on the way back in, we saw a gorgeous bald eagle just sitting up in a tree. I took about a dozen pictures, hoping at least one or two would turn out. The paddle felt good...hard towards the end (you're against the current coming in) but good. Roy petered out about 90 min so I did a lot of solo paddling. It feels good to be strong enough to do that.

Last night we saw the midnight showing of "The Dark Knight." Wow! It was GREAT! I am not big on midnight showings because after a day of work or play, I'm one tired gal! But I didn't even so much as droop an eyelid at this movie. Heath Ledger was a-maz-ing. I mean just played The Joker with a crazy subtlety that was much more realistic than Jack's. (Not that I don't love Jack, although as he gets older and my stepdad gets older I keep thinking, "Dad? Is that you?") It was worth the midnight showing. All four theaters here in M'ville were packed.


Now to see Mamma Mia! Leslie? Anyone else? Srsly!
