Good swim today! Did lots of speed drills. I generated a strength program for swimming improvement, so I'm going to start doing that.

Ran with Linda at lunch. We had some HELLACIOUS headwinds on the first two miles! In fact, I know we were working really hard and it felt WAY faster.

Run #2
  • 55m
  • 3.16 miles
  • 17m 25s /Mi

Met with Sheba, who is probably going to be taking my running class. Coached her a bit and we talked each others ears off! LOL! Run/walk combination.

Strength training in the studio in the am. Don't feel like putting in what I did. Suffice to say it was 45 minutes and my arms hurt.

Run #1

Coaching and my runners didn't show tonight, so I walked.

Got up this morning to go running with “the girls” but they weren’t there. I decided to head back home (the Y is only a mile away) and run from home alone in the dark (sniff). No, I actually like running alone in the mornings…just me and my podcasts. I wear a reflective vest and a lighted hat, so I’m pretty good. Plus I run where there is lots of traffic, so I feel safe. Of course I passed the girls on the run, so they must run earlier now. I’ll have to find out.

Run felt pretty good. It was COLD this morning…as in needed gloves cold! Brr! This afternoon I’m heading to the fair to see a friend’s daughter show her horse. I’ve already journaled my fair scone and plan a light lunch since we’ll be at the mercy of fair food…although actually things are now closer to the fair, so we might sneak off and eat off site. I should run home and grab my bikes just for that purpose. Roy is taking the bus to join me because tonight is the Weird Al concert. Hey! I like Weird Al!!

Walked the first mile or so dragging stuff to and from the park, but ran the rest with halfway decent times. Missed doing the triathlon today, but oh well.

Roy did go out and find a van for us to get us through a few years or so. Already people are criticizing. Can I just say STFU? The way we do things is the way we do things! Options were to fix the car, get an interim car and wait until next year or so to get a new car, or get a new car. Not in the financial position right now for a new car, so interim it is. But "friends" are acting like we're so stupid. I hate that. Intelligent woman here, thank you!

It's being given a good evaluation tomorrow so I can't do my trail run, and then emissions on Monday while we can still take it back if need be. Nice thing is, it'll be paid off in a few months.

It isn't my dream vehicle, but oh well. I don't think I have a dream vehicle other than one that gets me where I want to go.
