Let’s see. What’s happened since Oct 18?
I’m back to running a bit. My foot still hurts if I abuse it too much, but I’m just sucking it up, treating it after a run and ibuprfen is my breakfast, lunch and supper the day after a run. I’ll rethink what to do about it after Nov. 22.
I’ve been on the bike only the one time, but that’s changing tomorrow. New training schedule posted a bit further down.
This coming Thursday is when I start leaving work at 3:00 (can I get a Woohoo!) and I start swimming that afternoon. Husband is going to be my coach, since I cannot get anyone to take my money.
So, the new training plan looks something like this:
Tue: a.m. strength training; p.m. biking
Thur: a.m. strength training; p.m. swim
Sat: LSD run
After I’ve been doing this for a bit, I may change and add swim to Saturdays as well. Definately will be upping the tempo after the first of the year on the biking and swimming tho, since I’ve decided my first triathlon will be May 4.
I’m still looking for a couple more 5Ks between Nov 22 and Apr 4.
And of course we can’t forget the wonderful state of California being on fire. We never had to evacuate but it was rather hairy Wednesday morning. The dogs got up reeeeally early Wednesday morning and Kahuna came in saying he could see smoke blowing way down the street from us. I tried to go back to sleep after that, but ended up getting up at 2:30, getting dressed and snoozing on the futon in the man room with the TV on. Kahuna got up and dressed not too long after that. I finally felt safe enough to sleep around 12:30 that afternoon. There’s a map on CBS that shows the fire burning to the end of our street.
Other than that it’s been pretty mellow!
Oh wait, one more tidbit. Kahuna has received transfer orders effective January 4 to Miramar Air Base. He’s going to be a air winger again. I have no idea what this means as far as Iraq is concerned but I’m crossing my fingers that it doesn’t interfere with his Half Ironman coming up in March.
Speaking of Kahuna, I just remembered something else. He ended up getting inked two more places about a week after he had his ankle done. He’s now sporting a very fine looking elf script around same ankle that says something about the ride never ending…it’s a surfer thing. He also got barbed wire around his very buff bicep..opposite side, so he’s balanced.
Okay, that’s all. I think.
Nope, one more thang! Huge milestone met during WI at WW yesterday. Yay, me!
Okay, I’m out of here 😉
Congratulations on the continuing weight loss. You’re doing great, Terri.
I hope your DH’s transfer to Miramar doesn’t mean a trip to Iraq. Keeping you both in my thoughts!
Tonight (tuesday 10/30) on PBS there is a Nova episode on a group of new runners running the Boston Marathon. I’m sure it will be quite inspiring. I’m going to check it out 🙂
Woo hoo!!! Part time is great!
What a close shave with the fires!! I’d have had my treasured FOs and stash packed by the door!!!
LSD run? You’re going to run while tripping on drugs? ;-P
Seriously, I’m so incredibly proud of you and inspired by you. You’re doing awesome!!!
Congratulations on your progress that is awesome!!
