Blah Blogging

This has been a pretty blah week so far. Not much to blog about. The girls all made it back from SF yesterday which was good. Monday night was a crash night for me, wore out from the weekend and the pile of paperwork I had at the shop. Then when I looked at Annette's desk it was even more. I sometimes feel like I am drowning in paper. If not that its things on the calendar to do.

Tuesday night was Fire Department training and we had to review what we had done in the classes over the weekend. We spent two hours talking about the formula for figuring friction loss in fire hose. Oh my god....that is so boring and not real world. I'm thinking the whole time, "would someone just burn something so we can get out of here!"

Picked the girls up Wednesday afternoon and Annette was pretty tired and just wanted to eat so we went out and had Mexican. All day today at work I felt like I was in a rut. All those empty spots on my workout calendar puts me in a bad mood. Well, tonight I did make an attempt at running 3 miles. It was a little cooler so the weather wasn't too terrible but my foot hurt the whole run. Very slow, average 11:10 pace. Mostly because I would have to walk to wipe the sweat out of my eyes. I usually wear a hat or bondi band but tonight for whatever reason I didn't so all the sweat from my head went right to my eyes it seemed. I would have still been slow anyway. first mile was a 10:38 and I could have probably averaged that. At least I get to log some running miles for the week now!

Have to get back on the bike and at least get one good workout in before Sunday. Sunday morning we are having a little club time trial so that should be interesting to see how it shakes out. I already have probably 12 bikers committed and a lot more will just show up. The bad thing is I have no idea what I am doing and I am the one putting this together! It should work out fine though.

Good luck with the trial, Mr. Organizer!

I think you're doing a great job with organizing the club time trial. I don't think I will be able to make it but it sounds like a lot of fun (I'll have to see how I feel Sat. afternoon before making a decision.)

We all have those weeks where it seems like we're not getting anywhere with the running/cycling and it is frustrating. I'm just now getting my running back up to a decent level.

If I haven't thanked you already, THANK YOU, for picking me up and dropping me off, I really appreciate it!
