Monday, July 10, 2017 - HIIT strength training session followed by some time in the pool. Only made it 500 yards; the water was about 92 degrees and I just couldn't. Way too hot in there. Imagine lap swimming in a hot tub. Nooo!! Mom and I tried again later that night and still no good. It was 90 and again, just zapped me. 750 yards for the day. Found a chiro to get me all lined up. I'm a mess, he did X-rays and tomorrow we'll start treatment.

Tuesday, July 11, 2017 - swim and spin at LA Fitness. Got 2,500 yards in before the cardio swim class kicked us out followed by the 1 hour spin class. Spent the rest of the day at the VA and chiro.

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 - up at 6am hoping for cooler temps. Near 100, I managed 4.3 miles in about 50 minutes. Phew, that first mile drained me! Pushed on though. Another chiro treatment today. And p.s. went pink again!!
RUN

Thursday, July 13, 2017 - up early again and just too hot. Went to LA Fitness instead and ran 1 hour on the treadmill. Kill me now!! Finished and jumped in the pool for 1,000 yards of recovery. Ran errands and went shopping with mom and ate wings. All in a days work ;)

Friday, July 14, 2017 - headed to Flagstaff for a weekend of cycling...

Saturday, July 15, 2017 - the goal was 100 miles on the bike. I got to 80 before the storm came. At that point, it got too late and the gap became too long. 80 miles at 7,000 feet elevation. I'm okay with that!!
BIKE

Sunday, July 16, 2017 - a short ride of 27 miles with momma before heading back to hell. I mean, Phoenix area. I say hell because it's RIDICULOUS hot here!! Headed home tomorrow!!!
