- Thank you to everyone for their well wishes for Flash. And, for not making me feel like a wack-job for being so concerned about a dog. It means a lot. My buddy Flash started Phenobarbital today to help control his seizures.
- Last week my schedule got a little out of whack and things didn't go quite as planned. I am human. It was just one of those weeks where I got done what I could and didn't sweat what I couldn't get done. I am trying to learn to let it go. Still ended up with decent running mileage, but barely swam or biked.
- Changing my training schedule around for the 50-miler and experimenting with some different training options - but, most importantly returning to the back-to-back long runs, as opposed to the long ride/brick Saturday and the long run Sunday. This will have me going into the Half-Ironman a little less prepared than I usually am, but will ensure I'm fully prepared for the 50-miler.
- Played tennis with Dan on Sunday and got dominated. It was the first time I had played tennis since I was like 9 and played with my brother in our driveway. Sadly, my skills have not improved any.
- I've become addicted to Baskin Robbins. They opened one not far from our house, and I am there all.the.time. I am not even that big of an ice cream person. I blame the heat.
- Do you ever have those days, weeks, months, where it just seems you can never catch up? It seems like every day I have a to do list a mile long, and more often then not, only 1 or possibly 2 things get done on them. And, I don't even have kids. How is it that I cannot keep even keep up with the laundry or keep the house clean?
- I'm getting really excited for college football season. Especially since my Gamecocks are supposed to be damn good this year!
- I think that's about all I have to report. It's only hump day, I'm exhausted, and need a nap

Hotter than Hell
No really, it is. Today is day 70 of 100+ degrees high for the year. It is wearing me out and making me grumpy. Also, kind of lazy. Hence, today's bullet list:
