Short on time as I wanted to make the run a priority. Focused on a smooth, long stroke with good forearm positioning.

Swim and run at lunch today.

Tri Wis Lannon ride. Good times. Stopped with a new guy when he got a flat so there was a good 10-15 minute break about 20 miles in.

Brickage. Felt good.

Wow.  Totally impressed with Active Release Therapy.  In just over an hour I feel sooo much better.  Most of the time was spent with diagnosis and then we did some active release stuff and finally some exercises.  My hips and shoulders feel like they are aligned--tho before treatment they didn't feel out of line.  I've got a bunch of stuff going on with alignment and had some tendons/ligaments/muscles that were binding.  By getting a start on releasing that stuff we are on our way.  Confirmed that the shin splints were the symptem of a problem elsewhere in the body.  Going to go back to see him two more times and he gave me daily exercises to do as well.

I'm a skeptic of all things other than traditional medicine and massage.  Never seen a chiropractor.  Never considered anything like this before.  The real test will be how I feel a month from now so I'll reserve judgment for then.  But for now I'm impressed.
Oh, and I'm clear to run.  May try to do a short brick tonight after the Lannon ride.  Will likely go to Green Bay and do the half mary as an easy long run so long as I stay pain free.

Felt good but not sooper energetic or clean in the water today.

Howdy gang.  Fun weekend.  Drove up to Sault Ste. Marie Friday night, stayed with Lori's great aunt in Michigan about a mile from the crossing into Canada.  Had breakfast with her on Saturday morning, headed over to Canada, eh, for a wedding and reception, then back across the border late Saturday night.  Had to limit my intake of good Canadian beer, eh, so I wouldn't get hassled at the border.  More time hanging with family Sunday morning and then back in the car to head home.  Mowed the lawn for the first time this year (way overdue) last night.  Love the smell of fresh cut grass.

Going to do an easy bike and/or walk tonight.  Going to see the ART guy tomorrow to get help with my shin.  I had some ache type pain just sitting in the car yesterday.  This concerns me.  At this point I'm expecting to bail on the GB half mary this weekend.  Bummer.

Lunchy schimmy, as my friend David Jesse Raphael would say.

Headed to Sault Ste. Marie this afternoon for a wedding tomorrow.  There is a chance I'll swim before we leave but not sure I'll have time.  Not taking bikes and I can't run so it is looking like a nice rest weekend.

I've got a purchase closing this afternoon that I have been working on since February.  I will party down when I can finally stop thinking about this deal!  Fortunately I like the client and realtor I am working with so that has made it easier to take.

Started off with the Tri Wisconsin ride from the north shore Wheel and Sprocket and went a bit further. Fantastic early summer night. Included a pit stop at Baskin Robbins for a sugar cone of Baseball Nut ice cream:

A summer favorite since 1961, this homerun combines Vanilla-flavored ice cream loaded with cashews and a black raspberry ribbon.

Well hello there campers!  Yes, another busy day at work here.  This morning I did manage to get a card in the mail to my mom for mothers day.  Plan to do the Tri Wisconsin north shore ride tonight.  Only concern is that I may get stuck in the office, in which case I'll do a solo ride a little bit later.

Made an appointment with an active release therapist for next week.  Going to get some help with the shin splints and also with some pain I've got in the joints of my big toes.  I suspect that most of my issues are a result of being lazy in the off season and then jumping in full force.  Looking forward to getting some advice on how to deal with this stuff most effectively.  Going to see Steve Wittemann at Pro Release.  He has a nice alphabet soup after his name, but more importantly, sgoehner highly recommended him.

Have a fantastic day, m'kay?
