Rode 25 miles in the afternoon.  Felt pretty strong, and found a few hills to ride.  Ran 4 miles and stopped home to just change out of long pants but got caught up in helping with Jacob and didn't get back out to finish the last 3 miles.

Swam 2000 yds at the indoor pool around 5 pm. Had worked in the yard most of the day, cleaning out the shed, taking apart wooden shelves, lots of heavy lifting.  I guess that doesn't really count as aerobic exercise, but it sure tired me out!  Went to work after swimming to do planning and scheduling for this week.  Pretty busy day.  It feels like winter again - cold, grey, and windy,

Ran 7.27 on a new route at 6 pm, pretty fast to finish in time to take Carbon to agility class.  Windy and chilly.

I think I ran 7 miles today but forgot to record it.  Jacob left with his dad, Kevin, to go to Florida on vacation right after his T-ball practice, so I was a little distracted.  He'll be gone for a full week!

Ran 6.3 miles 7 p.m.  Feeling very tired.  Took a different route and it didn't turn out to be 7 miles as I had hoped.  Mapped it after the run.

Went to the podiatrist after work to find out about replacing my worn-out orthotics.  He said they are pretty old and have deteriorated, so he did the foot mold with cast material and ordered new ones. They should be in within a week and a half.  He's doing the bike portion of the Memphis in May Triathlon on a relay team and another triathlon later in the summer in upstate New York.  He's from the same area (Finger Lakes) in New York where my grandparents lived (and my uncle still lives).  Small world.

6 pm - 4 miles quickly before book club

The morning run didn't happen - dropped Jacob off at day care 7:30.  Evening run did happen after work - 5:30 pm, 4 miles with Carbon, 3 miles with Luke.   Watched Jacob's tball game for a little while before taking Carbon to agility.  Whew - busy Monday!

5:30 a.m. - entered the lottery for the St. George Marathon with some trepidation.  I think it was Lybi that mentioned this was a good one for BQ.  What are the chances of getting in? The scenery looks gorgeous!

6 pm Bike World group ride - 28.5 mi.  There were only guys on the ride except me,  most of them probably 10 years younger than me or more.  They dropped me but did wait 3 times at the larger intersections for me. Was able to hammer with them for a short distance.  Good workout.

8:30 pm - 7 mile run, easy pace.
