Today shall be a rest day as scheduled. I found some very sore muscles last night. Not so much from the ride but definately from Total Conditioning.

My test is on Wednesday, so I'll spend the day doing some studying as well.

Pecos extended loop ride with Travis, Ken & Tanya. I was able to ride with Tanya for the entire ride. Not sure what my HR numbers are but I felt pretty comfortable for the entire ride except for the boys. Not happy with me.

I probably would not have made it to 57 miles. I ran over a branch/twig something on the way back to the park and ride that caused a flat after we were done. That was a close call. I have yet to get a flat on a ride that has caused me to stop on the road to repair. **knocks on wood**.

Total Conditioning with Linda

I took a rest day yesterday. I just feel banged up. My back has been sore all week and have just a general achy feel. So, instead of a run, I did Total Conditioning. That kicked my a$$ as usual but my body held up.

I'm thinking about taking the fam to go see Up! today.

Alcatraz is 2 weeks from tomorrow.

Fun times at the lake last night. Astrid brought some quality barley pops. We also swam and ran up the hill. Back felt pretty good. I, however had trouble sleeping which caused me to be up for a few hours in the middle of the night. Jerry made a special appearance.

Today will include a trip to the chiro and a 45 min bike at 100 rpm.

Have a great Friday

PT at chiro. LOTS of stretching exercises

Good Day-

Back is feeling better today. I went to the chiro yesterday and today. Need to put more ice on it today. 

I felt sluggish on the tready but otherwise OK.

Scheduled my test for next Wednesday and should start work on 6/8.

My back is still jacked up. I'm walking like an older man than I am. Should visit the chiro today.

Yesterday, we took Emmy to Mesquite Groves for some play time. The pool was at capacity when we arrived so we waited about 10 minutes before we could get in. Once inside, Emmy and her friend Lauren went to play while Shelley and I swam some leisurely laps. Shelley has come a long way. She can now swim 400-500 meters without blinking an eye.

My plan calls for a swim and 45min run today. Not sure what will happen. Kinda depends on how my back feels. Right now not good. It generally loosens up as the day goes on.

Fleetwood Mac ROCKS! What was nice is they only sang hits as there is no new album to promote. Lindsey Buckingham is much better than I would have anticipated. I suppose 40+ years in the music business will do that. We had some Ichiban before the show out in the boomtown of Tolleson at 99th and McDowell. Shelley use to work at 83rd  and we use to live at 63rd. Let's just say the place looks much different now.
