I didn't get out for a run or head to the Y, but I did take my family boating and I waterskiied for the first time in a long while. What a workout! I have a double-boot Connelly slalom ski and after about 10 turns my quads were burning. When slalom used to be a big deal I'd see tournaments with guys touching their elbows as they went through a bouy course. They must have been brutes. Perfect night at the lake, warm temps, no wind, few boats = great water. It was a rare treat and I loved it.

4 TM miles. I'm kind of addicted to Longmire, but only a few episodes remaining then I'll probably venture outside.

Weighed myself last night and I'm the heaviest I've been in quite a few years. I've not been eating well for the last 12 months or so and it's starting to show. I used to eat healthy because that's what sounded good. Now other foods and lots of it sound good. I'm fairly confident the middle age bulge isn't caused by getting older, it's more caused by our wallets getting fatter and being able to afford more food. We buy crap because we can, then we eat crap. When we were young we couldn't afford much so we didn't eat much. I should write a book about it but I'd be lambasted for not giving people a crutch. But I digress.

Ran outside at lunchtime. It was only 79 degrees so wasn't bad. I felt pretty good and it was nice to be outside as TM running is harder when the legs aren't feeling great. I planned to run 5 but the route was a bit short so I got back to work sooner. Drat.

Spin class at Noon. The muscles used for biking are NOT the same as the ones used for running. This was much harder than I remember it being so I took it easy and left a few minutes early. A good sweat but not much dripping because I couldn't work that hard. I've got a ways to go to fully recover but I think my key will be cross training. Too much sports specific stuff is hurting me.

6 in the morning from my house.

2 unplanned miles in the afternoon. Went on a camping trip with church youth from the stake and I was supposed to give them the rope for the 3 legged walk but I took a wrong trail. I ran down the trail to be in the right spot and enjoyed the run.

No miles being on the campout with tight timelines, but I did get to help build a forest service trail for a few hours and that was fun. Using a pulaski is hard work though. My hands still aren't recovered two days later. I can barely grip anything. Having a desk job is hard work.
