Finishing up this shit-ass week with wine and a bowl of ice cream, which I’ll probably regret tomorrow, but for now I’m enjoying. I’d working on going back to school to get a graduate degree so I started some classes this week I need for prerequisites. It occured to me that the other undergraduates in the class WERE BORN WHEN I WAS WORKING ON MY BACHELOR’S DEGREE. ...
Feeling like a triathlete - finally
I’ve finally has a great training week where I hit all of my scheduled workouts and all three sports. I’ve been feeling like a fraud because I couldn’t run and I was lazy on the bike.

Not a great way to start, but perhaps it’s good to get some time to myself to plan out training and get myself organized.
