i think we are supposed to hit 80 here next week.
We were in the middle of washington over the weekend and the day after we got back, it snowed in the mountains over the pass we drove over. in MAY! it's been the wettest year on record so far. i'm ready for 80.
Run commute into work this morning. 12.5 miles with 10 at mp. very successful overall and i'm pleased considering i was pretty tired earlier this week. yesterday was a planned rest day however.
the in-laws have landed.
their house in ABQ was packed up and loaded yesterday. they are now residents of washington. it's been stressful of course as things came up. Now they wait for the moving truck and fret. it's very strange that they aren't going back to ABQ.
i am back to full time work starting this week as there are multiple vacations planned for my team. i've really been using that extra day to do stuff for the coaching group so have been playing catchup the past few days. finally yesterday evening, i'd caught up well enough and could take the evening off!
the training camp went well this past weekend. We did have one idiot athlete though.
A friend of a friend who is the total type a/overboard athlete. She is a triathlete and has done multiple half irons etc. she's got a goal race a week out. took a spill on bike drills and skills (we do this on grass and considering her experience as a triathlete i was shocked by her poor bike handling skills!
) and either pulled something (likely - she is wound tight in every sense in the word!
) or cracked a rib. And chose to continue running and biking and doing everything else with it.
Because running 8 miles the week before a goal event is going to matter? so strange to be one of the coaches in this instance. and she did admit that she's had many, many overuse injuries. no surprise there. the demons she must have are grim.
more blather: while i was gone i got handed the most ridiculous project at work. they've been talking about rebranding the company for 7 months and now all of a sudden they are doing business cards. confirm all information in my office for 450 people in two days.
it's been ridiculous as the information i was given didn't even have phone numbers because no system at work seems to talk to another system. :jobsecurity:
bonus: we've had rat problems before in our attic.
we finally got it all closed up and haven't had any issues lately. however the insulation (a combo of blown in cellulose which is the old stuff and fiberglass rolls) really needs to be all pulled out and re-done. they made a mess.
