Friday FunFest!

May 16, 2014¬†started out with an early visit to Bakersfield High School. I was honored to deliver the 1000+ Hot Dogs and Bags of Chips to Fun Fest. Fun Fest is a Carnival for all of the Special Needs kids from the feeder Elementary Schools to BHS. Seriously a fun event. The high school students get to have buddies and do carnival games. A dunk tank, jump houses, ring toss, face paint, and everything else you can think of that belongs at a carnival. Yes cotton candy too ūüėČ The kids look forward to it all year long and the excitement you see on their faces will warm you for a lifetime. I can’t wait till next year!

After a day at the office I got out for a ride and headed up to my parents house. The kids are having a sleepover with Grandma and Papa, but I had to see them. They were swimming when I got there so I got to join in the fun! It’s so nice to ride in a TriSuit! I just took off my cycling shoes and jumped in! Got to play with the kids for a bit but it was getting dark and I had to go chase the sun home.

Capped the night off with watching the Veronica Mars movie with the girls! Good Movie! Great use of kickstarter.com!

Busy, busy day. Work. Errands. Kids’ Open House. Kid’s Choir Performance. Sleep. Had just enough time to jump on the BowSwim for a super quick swim somewhere in the middle of all of that. Not much of a workout, but it got my blood moving a bit. Hoping that tomorrow brings something in the way of a real workout! And after looking at my accountability, I just realized why I was so hungry; I barely ate yesterday. I need to do better on nutrition. Not that I need to lose weight or anything (my weight fluctuates between races), but if I was looking to lean out, starving myself would not be the way to do it. And doing it too many days in a row will start to have the opposite effect. A body in starvation mode will convert calories into fat. And that is not what anyone wants¬†to do. Good thing I didn’t really workout yesterday! ūüėČ

Took off Tuesday from training. I am thinking that Tuesday may start to be my rest day from now on. Today I couldn’t take it any longer and went in to see the Chiropractor about the pain in my left leg. I have tried rest, stretching, and myofascial release with no success. These past two months have been painful, labored, and somewhat depressing to say the least. When your body is out of whack and you can’t perform as well as you would like, it tends to bum you out. It turns out that I was way out of alignment and all I needed was a good adjustment. I immediately felt relief which in turn made me sleepy. (I have not been sleeping well for the past few months) Its amazing how something like skeletal alignment can affect your activities of daily living. After a quick nap, I was ready to go for a bike ride. I felt so much more comfortable and even though the wind was blowing pretty good and the triple digit heat was sizzling, I put down a decent workout! Looking forward to seeing what else I am able to achieve with my rejuvenation!
