Dropped off kids and left from there for an out and back on a very hilly course.
I forgot my bike computer - BT route tracker says ~12.7 miles and 492' of climb. I felt pretty good even with the heat. I managed to take a chunk out of the palm of my right ring finger as I was switching gears. I pushed down on the lever right onto the skin and OW!!!! Lots of blood too. I just moved a band-aid over from the finger next to it!

I sliced vertically right into my nail yesterday reaching into my sewing box. That was very painful and a lot of blood too. I'm still not sure what I got myself on. Oh, and I got stung by a bee yesterday too... It took a ride on my shirt into the building where I was picking up Bryn and got me good near my right hip. I need to start wearing a suit of armor!

Drove over to watch Tyler at soccer camp, then got bored so I ran until I had to pick him up.
I'm using the term "run" loosely. It's too damn hot out there to run. I trotted. No HR monitor, but I could tell it was elevated even on the flats.

Both kids' first day at camp, the only week of the entire summer I managed to get them BOTH in a camp at the same time, and what do I do?!?!  Dishes and straighten the house up....  boring...  It was an hour and a half of bliss, though!  Smile

After an entire week of being apart, my ass and my bike seat had a joyful reunion! It was quite touching... ;)
I rode on the canal for part of the ride, but at least half of it was on rolling hills. Got caught in the wind and rain, but it was still a good ride.

This was a fairly flat course with a couple of gradual hills. Half on canal path. Didn't do a great job keeping HR in check. Had THREE bobbystocks stops!! I almost ended the run after the 3rd one, but only had 17 more min left so toughed it out. I had felt a little nauseous prior to this last stop, but it subsided. Not sure why. It was a decent run even with all of the little aggravating "issues."

I imported a new training plan last night - basic Olympic, 12 week.  It's set up for the Finger Lakes Oly.   Need a 90 min bike today according to plan.  Only time to do it probably was early morning.  I laid in bed and enjoyed that comfort more than the thought of getting on the bike....  Now that is NO WAY to get better on the bike - lying there THINKING about it!!    Oh how I wish I were a morning person.


3 hour baby shower today which is a 2 hour drive away.  My day is essentially shot.

Plus side is that it's for a cousin who has tried to have a baby for nearly 10 years and is finally able to adopt a baby from Guatemala!!!!  He's 6 months old now and they are waiting for the call to go get him.  I can't imagine what they must feel!!!!!   

Well, I decided I love getting chastised so much that I went ahead and learned how to use IrfanView to make more of my photos uploadable!!  There's more in the Tinman album now.  Enjoy!

Adv/Int workout. The workout was supposed to be 3250, but after I got home I realized I only did 5 instead of 6 50's. Oh well.

400 (200s, 100k, 100p)
6x125 on 2:15 (breathe every 5 on #'s 3 & 6 and every 3 on the others)
Main Set:
6(5)x50 choice on 1:10 (I did breast, back, free, back, breast)
2x350 long and strong on 7:00
6(5)x50 choice on 1:10
1x300 long on 7:00
4x75 on 1:55 (I mixed it up with free, back, breast and fly kicks)
W/D 200

Didn't focus too much on times, just tried to focus on form and rolling side to side with every stroke. During the 200 w/d I focused on not kicking very much to see how that was. Might be something to get better at for tris.
Paddles didn't bother my shoulder tonight during pulls. I changed the band placement, but doubt that had anything to do with it being better.

It felt GREAT to get a workout in!!!! I've been going stir crazy, and riding the edge with the kids.... I need to get back into the swing of things!

Floor is out of the kitchen now.  Also took a shelf down that was connected to a cabinet.  I was "accidentally" clubbing the cabinets as I was removing the floor!  "Ooops, did I do that?"  Wink

Cabinets will slowly be coming out in the next week or so, then painting and drywall (a little bit) then the kitchen guys should be ready to start on the 23rd.  (Let's hope it works out that nicely!)
