Ksurp...awesome work at the EN IMMT training camp! Looking forward to seeing you out there in August! Also, WRT DH's shingles, that really sucks! I'm telling you, I'd totally get vaccinated against shingles before I ever get vaccinated for the flu! Folks I've spoken to who've had shingles have been affected for MONTHS.
MoCo...7 miles!!! WOOT!
Sparty...NICE brick! fingers crossed WRT DH's interview
Julie...my physical therapist/coach often remarks that the knees are hapless bystanders to whatever is going on with the hips and/or feet. You may want to see someone and have them do a functional movement screen. Hope your knees feel better soon!
Thanks, again, everyone for your kind words regarding Kaya. For the past few days, she's enthusiastically greeted us when we come home in the evening, vigorously squeaking her stuffed snake and coaxing us into tugging with her. So far, she approves of the addition of shiitake mushrooms, kelp, sweet potatoes, and watermelon to her diet. Marley got some watermelon, too.
Cooler weather, relatively speaking, today in MA. Last night, however, I just could not get on board with the idea of a solo 53 mile ride outside, so I suggested to my coach an a.m. and a p.m. trainer ride. He complied and suggested a TrainerRoad ride that I did 2x today, with some modified intensity. "Tower" is a "progression workout lasting a total of 90 minutes consisting of 5 zero-recovery, 16-minute steps from 60-100% FTP." In the morning, I backed off 10% for steps 2-5 and in the evening, I backed off 4-6% for steps 2-5. Parked myself in front of Netflix and Orange is the New Black (now done with Season 1).
Hey, it's all about finding a way to keep moving forward and get it done, right?
