Ready for the Week
Sunday, September 15, 2013      8 comments

I haven't done much in the way of exercise this week. I had late nights at work on Wednesday and Thursday - didn't get home until close to 10:00 both nights. Yesterday the "to do" list was quite long and we had a party to go to in the afternoon.... Read more

Surprisingly I was not sore this morning - including my sore foot. When I finished my personal triathlon, I made a point to stretch the offending foot well. I stretched again after a hot shower. Then I took ibuprofen and sat with ice on the foot... Read more

I drove back to Massachusetts today. As I got close to home I gave some thought to my DNF Recovery Plan. I did my own triathlon. Today. I wasn't going to be denied. I went to the Y and did the swim, bike, run. Of course it is much easi... Read more

First off, let me answer your two burning questions and then I will get into the debrief. Yes, OPTIMIST1948 and I did find each other out of the 1500 people who were racing. She has the pictures, though, so you'll have to wait for documenta... Read more

I'm going to make this brief. I want to be asleep soon since the alarm is set for 4:00. I drove down to NJ yesterday. Before I even got out of MA, the state police were so impressed that they stopped me and gave me a citation for my outstan... Read more

The Hubster has been cleaning my bicycle and adjusting the brakes for me. He's so wonderful. He can fix most things on my bike, keep it functioning well and he's handsome, too. Tomorrow morning I'm leaving bright and early from my fair cit... Read more

I may have mentioned a couple of times that there's a sprint tri that I'm competing in this Sunday. I can't help but think about this year versus last year. Last year I was in great shape. This year, not so much. Last year I was a nervous wreck.... Read more

I cannot get enough of Diana Nyad. I sat in a crowded coffee shop this afternoon with tears in my eyes as I followed her progress. I was so filled with emotion, it was hard to breathe. She is truly a Warrior Woman. With Diana's accomplishm... Read more

I deleted the more "revealing" blogs to protect the innocent and released my page back to the public. Not that I have a huge fan base that is clamoring for a more public feed... I just decided that the pity party is over. No one likes a whiner. ... Read more

After I posted my blessings message, I dozed off for an entire 20 minutes! Ugh. I gave up, got out of bed with my mindless romance novel and read on the love seat in the living room. I dozed off and on, mostly "off", until it was time to get rea... Read more

Ugh. It is 4:20 and I am awake, fretting over a bunch of "what ifs". I know I cannot do anything about work stuff until later this morning. I am not too worried about not sleeping since I slept late this morning and I had a 1 hour nap. I se... Read more

My primary care doctor personally called and made the appointment for me with the podiatrist. I was scheduled to see the principal's assistant, but was assured he'd be in to meet with me. And he did. Turns out my primary care and the podiatrist ... Read more

Short answer about the visit to the podiatrist on Thursday. He's going to get me to Sandy Hook tri on September 8 and then he's going to do some long term treatment of my tootsie. I love this man. He is a complete kook, but he deserves his own b... Read more

I just got back from my primary care doctor. It's the first time I have ever seen him in his capacity as physician. I've been going to this practice for 16 years and not once has he treated me. I always see one of the Nurse Practitioners (my cho... Read more
