Damned If You Do, and Damned If You Don't...

Time, most of the time I'm happy to have plenty of it. Normally, I work in the constraints of a schedule. Equipment has to be checked within a week, a month, 45 days, or in some cases 90 days. The more time you have, the more involved the process is to run through the system. I love summer, and as a kid, I wanted it to last forever. That, and I didn't want to go back to school. However, this whole "it's the journey, not the destination" is really a crock of crap.

I guess the only flaw in my scheduling of races was that I wish I had scheduled a couple of more races in the interim, because the training is starting to get boring. The big race is only 70, plus change, days away, and the trip to Muncie is only 22 days away. I should be concentrating on that one, but I guess I just would like to get this show on the road and get at it. Mainly, I'd like to get it out of the way just to avoid the next injury that I'm sure is going to present itself. My White Doctor, with the Korean sounding name, has given me a whole new set of exercise to help strengthen the disparity of muscles between one leg and the other. How? Beats the crap out of me. I do know it's been working because my knees feel pretty good.

The kids have been going to the track once a week to run a mile, and so that I can chase the almost two year old around the stadium. One trash can in the entire infield and he finds it. My daughter has gotten pretty good, while my oldest wants to screw around and whine for the most part. With the Y swim team starting, he should be getting out of that mode, or at least if he follows the past two seasons he's been on the team. Either way, it's time to go to Lakeshore Country Club and Kahkwa (I think,) and hobnob with the elite spoiled of Erie. The only places I know that wheel out the mobile bar at the beginning of warm ups.
