How'm I Doin'?
Given how wretched I felt a week ago, I'm surprised by how good I feel right now.
I swam this morning. I have an indoor triathlon in nine days, so my swims are focused on preparing for that event. I use fins for the floatation and I don't r... Read more
The Sickness Fog Has Lifted
I have an indoor triathlon in a week & a half, and I haven't been in the pool in more than two weeks. The Hubs & I went to a backcountry resort the first weekend of the month. I started coming down with something that Saturday evening. It derail... Read more
Good/Bad for Today
GOOD: At lunch, I swam a few laps without the fins. I did pretty good. I'm doing an indoor triathlon in about a month, so it's time to start prepping for that event.
BAD: The staff at the juvenile court had a potluck lunch. Despite not bein... Read more
I think I need to start prefacing everything I write with "This is not a solicitation for advice. Please resist the temptation to give me advice. Unsolicited advice from people who do not know me nor my chronic injury issues makes me cranky."

I decided to try an experiment by not weighing myself for a week. I did okay, but my body fat percentage went up.
I have had bunion on my right foot for years now. A few weeks ago, I felt one developing on my left foot, the foot that's reco... Read more
I'm Such A Loser (and why I have no problem with that)
This blog post has nothing to do with my athletic goals. Fear not, my self-esteem and confidence are intact.
Today, I spied an email subject line that addressed my "career goals." Pfft. I don't really have any. No five-year plan. No desire ... Read more
Celebrate the Little Victories!
I've been uber-busy at work, which means I've had less time to goof off online. But I am waiting for a file to be delivered, so now's a good time for a quick journal entry.
I swam at lunch yesterday. I came to the conclusion that, for now, ... Read more
I Feel Things Turning Around :-)
I ran again at lunch today. When he initially diagnosed my plantar fasciitis, my doctor recommended starting out by running a quarter-mile. Today, I noticed that I'd been running for ninety seconds, and this thought went through my head: stop it... Read more
Yesterday Was An Odd One
I went to yoga last night. That was a battle in and of itself. I talked myself into, and out of, going to the club a dozen times. The battle was raging even as I approached the club. The "just give it a try!" side of me won.
My back is a LO... Read more
Wow, I Can Really Be A Jerk Sometimes
I'm a member of an Athena triathlete group on Facebook. One of my Athena sisters posted this on the group's page:
"Hi Athena's: as we go into the New Year with some pretty amazing triathlon goals upon us I'm curious to know if anybody has ... Read more
Screw Joy. I'm Feeling Sorry for Myself.
My back hurts. It sucks. It's self-inflicted, because I kept putting off going to the chiropractor. I've been telling myself for a couple of months that I needed to schedule some adjustments to get my back ready for running in January. And yet I... Read more
Today is just one of those days!
I feel like I'm sick. I skipped my workout at lunch. Swimming with gooey sinuses seemed like not the best use of my lunch break. And I felt really tired, so I skipped going for a walk and took a nap.
A... Read more
Come to the Dark Side, Kim
I stopped by a local thrift store yesterday. Outside the store, they had a Burley HepCat recumbent bike for $140. Read more
I tried a few intervals. Nothing structured, just "GO SWIM FAST!" These were my first swim intervals. Hmm. They suck as much as hill repeats.
Last night, I noticed my lower legs - outside, at the bottom of my calves - are sore to the touch... Read more
In a Lull
I am not the dedicated workout machine some people think I am.
I skipped yoga last Thursday. Then I skipped strength training Friday, thinking I was going to do it Saturday. Saturday was insanely busy - including a 3-hour bike ride, my firs... Read more
