plady~Don't get me wrong, I hope I'm still going that strong at 75...I just wish he would acknowledge that the rest of us aren't 75! I was actually shocked that we did quite a bit of out of the saddle climbing, and even some jumps...he's usually a strictly in the saddle kinda guy.
melw~Hope your DD is on the upswing. That's got to be so rough, I can't imagine. Did you ever figure out the culprit?
I have just spent two hours attempting to assemble all the documents necessary to refinance one's house. I'm not completely confident that I found them all, but hopefully. The process was not assisted by the fact that my office is out of control, a complete disaster area. Blech. Fun times. I also got in a nice little nap this afternoon, and a quick trip to Costco. FYI, they have some great wicking racerback tanks in right now in awesome springy colors for $12.99. I wasn't completely sold, but then I wore one for my run this morning and LOVED it. They're really long, which is awesome for a very long-torsoed person such as myself. So I went back to buy two more colors.
NYC is booked! Hotel and flights are confirmed, woohoo! For the grand total of $7.50, thank you hotel points and airline miles! Of course, I went to see if I could get tickets for the Book of Mormon for that weekend. I can...for $250. A TICKET. Not sure if I can justify that. Although, since I'm not paying for hotel or flights, maybe. Especially if my friend comes with me (and she's about 75% sure she is)...she could pay for the tickets in return for the hotel, I'm thinking. Broadway/musically inclined dingos...any other good shows on Broadway now that would be worth getting tickets for? I can't go to NYC and not see a show!
rr~Well, I didn't get my planned 8 in, but I did get a pretty rocking 6+ in. Hint: it's very helpful to actually take your running shoes with you when you drive to a run. I arrived at 8:30 to get 4-ish in before the group met at 9:30, only to arrive at the park and find out that I didn't have my shoes. So I got 2 in before the group. Oh well. I actually had someone to run with this week, first time with this group! It was great...he was pretty good company, and clearly faster than me, but taking it easy today so that he pushed me just a little. I had my fastest run in MONTHS, even got two miles sub-10 min pace. It's reassuring that I do have SOME kind of speed hiding somewhere. It gives me hope that maybe, just maybe, it will come back a little. Still not so sure about that 10 mile race next weekend, but I already paid, so I guess I have to at least try, right?
