So the company was great, the ride was good but I really don't like all the traffic (scary) and the spot lights. When I first met my good friend E and she took me to GWL I remember her saying, "riding out here is like being on crack, it is so addictive" I had not ideal what the heck she meant but now I totally know. East County- whether it is GWL, Kitchen Creek, Sunrise Hwy....you never or maybe only 1 time have to stop and unclip. We ride for hours and miles and don't stop and there is VERY little traffic. So driving 30-40 min to ride is 1- not very environmental 2-takes a lot of time....but is a huge amount of fun! So there you have it. The bonus is we have choices and we can do them all.
Health update.....success in the swim department- 3 days and up to 2100 yards pain free. yee haw. Looks like Masters is on the agenda for next week! ( I hope anyway) Running- had a great week of consistent running- 30 minutes a day and NO hip pain when running. Some aching after but with good stretching and ice - it goes away. Thursday my shin flared up! What the H? I have not had shin splints in years....come on people - let me train! I ran Friday and minimal pain when running but sore after- so I have a new spot for ice, heat and treatment. Poor KP- I went for ART and he asked now which hip, where is the new pain, how much time to you have? All I can say.... being young is a blessing- is you are under 40 relish it, appreciate it and know that with each year...well enough said. Back to being happy!
Tough week as a parent- really it is not easy and not a picnic! Enough said.
Family in town - Awesome. Bro, sis-in-law and niece/nephew from down under are in San Diego for 2 weeks. Terrific reuniting dinner on Friday in their rented (very cool) pad in Bird Rock. Mom and B there and it was good fun, good fun and of course a lot of hide and seek. H.S with a 2 and 4 year old it quite funny....where ever you hide, they hide there for their turn. If you don't find them immediately they start shouting "over here" And with the beauty of kids...the game can go on and on and on. It is just so fun to run around and play with them again!
Tomorrow is all about lacrosse...Riley in the morning 2 games and JD 2 in the afternoon and then to Mom's for another big family dinner!
