Life Maintenance

Life is a succession of moments. To live each one is to succeed. - Corita Kent

God is in the details. - Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

Eat, sleep, train. Eat, sleep, train. Eat, sleep, talk to husband, train. Eat, sleep, go to work, train. Eat, sleep, actually focus on work, train. Eat, sleep, eake out time to see friends, train....

While the last several weeks haven't been completely like this, they've felt pretty darn close. We've just complete three weeks of higher volume training and are now in the middle of a rest week -- still training every day, just training only once per day with much easier workouts. With all of this "extra time" on our hands, we're actually excited about the list of "life maintenance" items that need to be attended to over the next several days. The list looks something like this:

  • Do laundry
  • Take bike to shop for tune-up
  • Take car to shop for tune-up (Fix rear windshield wiper that's on the fritz due to bike rack placement)
  • Return call from grandma from last month (Bad grandaughters....bad....)
  • Have dinner with girlfriends (Try to wear something other than workout clothes)
  • Put away laundry wonderful husband folded two weeks ago
  • Get grad school diplomas framed (Quick - before Ray goes back to school again!)
  • Mail heart rate monitor off for new battery
  • Attend second of seven weddings taking place this summer (It's our age and stage....)
  • Run / walk Race for the Cure 5K (Zone 1-2 only!) in honor of Sandy
  • Take clothes to tailor (Our bodies have changed a lot in the last few months and nothing fits the way it used to!)
  • Clean bathrooms (Finally....)
  • Tame front yard jungle (aka Robyn & Ryan's front yard)
  • Do more laundry
