Damn DOMS. My legs are complaining today. Bigun finished her swimming lessons yesterday. She loved it, and even jumped in from the side of the pool 2 out of 3 times; it really scares her. I got a good 2000 meter swim in during the lesson. Love that! Today my legs are screaming. I guess it's doms from the speedwork wednesday night. Maybe I just used my legs more than normal during the swim.
Today is a rest day. The weekend is supposed to contain a 30 mile bike ride and 5 mile run. Those numbers seem awfully small considering:
Kelley's mom is taking the kids back home with her today! This keeps getting better. Now she's going to keep them at her house until one of them breaks. Either Kelley will miss them too much and call for them to come back, which normally happens after about 3 days, or her mom will get ready to head for the mountains and drop them off on the way. Either way it's more freedom than I was expecting. I've got yardwork to do, long runs/rides, I still have to cut up the tree that fell down in the backyard last month.
Early next week we're getting a new roof put on the house. It would be nice for those guys to be on the roof making all that noise while there are not napping children in the house. So let's hope they can get out here before the kids come back. We are finally getting the exterior of the house repaired, the roof had hail and wind damage so it has to be the first thing to get fixed. Then it's a few gutters, getting some rotten siding replaced, exterior paint, then landscaping. Come on curb appeal!
Can you believe the nerd won the batchelorette? I was glad she picked Ed, these people always pick the guys with the abs like Kypton. Ed is just an IT consultant like me, and seems like a normal nice guy. It's so good to see the nice guys win for once.
And on Big Brother, I hate that these idiots keep nominating the eye candy. Of course, the eye candy has the IQ of a bag of bricks. It has to be the girl from Charlotte that admits on camera that she can't tell time. At least she's hawt. Lemme tell ya though, hawt chicks like that are only attractive until they start talking. Once you realize there's nothing going on upstairs the appeal goes away quickly.
Speaking of not smart, Ronnie is not as smart as the rest of the brains. He's a dumbass. I thought it was hilarious how they have him listed as a "video game expert" and then everyone acted suprised that he spent a few days straight alone in the HOH room. If he's really a video game expert, he is also well versed in social depravation. At least he is aligned with the people that keep on winning. I was glad to see Casey go home last night, he was getting really annoying. Campaigning for votes in a banana constume made me laugh so hard. And I love the irony that he threw the veto competition to get a margharita party for the house and now he won't be able to partake. BB is the BEST!!!
I'm reading Jillian Michaels Master Your Metabolism right now. I like it, full book review to come. Her theories are really sound. and it makes me want to go see an endocrinologist. But I have it checked out from the library and it's due back today so I better read fast.
I also got a call today and found out that an uncle of mine that I'm really close too has prostate cancer. That really sucks. He had an operation this week and we hope they got it all. We'll know more later I guess. I've mentioned on here before about my family history with cancer, I think this is the first time we've seen prostate as the originator. Scary stuff.
FREEDOM! Have a great weekend. Good luck if you're racing. I know Sarah is going to PR a 5k tonight! Have fun girl!
