It has been crazy busy around here but here is a run down of what I have been doing.

Thursday was suppose to be a rest day but with the trip to Memphis over the weekend I knew I would not be able to swim. So I got up early, only to discover I had a major headache. I set out on my run and almost bagged it after a mile. Somehow I managed to finish all 45 minutes of it, but the swim wasn't going to happen. I got back in bed and hoped the headache would be gone before I had to go to work.

Friday I had a five and a half hour ride. Made it 95.25 miles. No foot pain this time thanks to my new shoes. But I forgot the Chamois Butt'r, ouch!!!!

Saturday I recovered, hung with friends and went to a wedding. Ronnie really wanted me to skip the race Sunday morning and after much nagging I finally agreed. So we got on the road for home early Sunday morning. Once home I had to get in my 1:30 easy ride. I made it 1:25 and was not in the mood for a lap or two of the hood so called it good enough. I was also suppose to do strength training. Never happened.

This morning I got up at 3:50 and ran for an hour then went to the rec center for my 4000 yard swim. I was swimming really slowly and ran out of time and motivation. I made it 2200 yards. When i got home, I checked on my son. Yesterday his throat was hurting and he had no voice. He still sounded bad and said his throat was still hurting. So I kept him home today. I think he is on the road to recovery and will be returning to school tomorrow. Now I just gotta pray his sister doesn't get it, or me!!!!
