Workout Notes Week Ending August 19
Vacation Week! I have in the past been fairly disciplined about working out during vacations. However, given the state of my knee, I was concerned about running four or five days in a row. I was unsure of any available gym, bike or suitable pools for swimming. OTOH, giving the knee and frankly the rest of my tired old bod a rest might be just the thing.

Sunday afternoon, after riding 60+ miles with Terry, the family headed to Glen Rose. We stayed at the excellent Best Western, which was really a very nice property. I had a nice run on Monday morning around the back roads of Glen Rose. Then we spent the day swimming in the Paluxy River. And after that we drove down to New Braunfels. Tuesday we spent the day in tubing the San Marcos River. Wednesday we spent the day at Schlitterbahn. Thursday Erin blew in, and it rained like hell. The perfect day for a trip to a cave. With all of that I did not get motivated to do any workouts! Friday we drove back to Dallas and I managed to get a swim in at Lifetime. Saturday I rode with the RBM ride and this time I managed to get dropped several times, but I also caught back up at least four times. I hung with the group longer than ever. Terry and I rode this morning. He needed a short ride, and good thing, because my legs were dead!
