Workout Notes 2008 Week 25
I had thought last week was a living hell. Not even close to what this week brought!

Monday I was able to run during the day, and I did a very nice43 minute loop from the gym. Even though it was hot out in the full sun, my HR stayed well within easy mode. Tuesday, I did the 800 meters and this time I managed to knock more than a second off my time, getting down to high 2:17's. I was pretty happy with that.

Meanwhile, over the previous weekend Reagan had not been felling very well, and she was running a low grade fever. Finally on Tuesday, Fran took Reagan to the doctor. Wednesday she was still not better and back to the doctor, at that point they admitted her to the hospital. She was dehydrated so they gave her some fluids and ran a buncha tests. Well she did not get any better, so finally on Wednesday night, they gave her some IV antibiotics. It was not until very late Thursday night that the fever broke and she started to feel a bit better. And late Friday she was finally released to come home. They never were able to tell us exactly what the problem was either. All tests (and they ran tons of them) came back negative.

This was both stressful just having the kid in the hospital, but then also I had to be a single dad for Marissa and Logan. Yikes!

Needless to say, I missed my swim on Wednesday. Instead I left work early and took Logan to soccer practice and I did 45 minutes of jogging at the Sting Soccer Complex. Thursday I took the kids to Grandma and Grandpa's and went to work. At lunch I headed to the gym and I ran from there to get my interval work in. Friday, after Fran and Reagan got home, I was able to get a swim in at Lifetime Garland. Saturday Morning, we had several Soccer games. Rather than head down to SMU and meet Coach Vaughan, I opted for an earlier workout at Naaman Forest High School. I got off to slow start with the 6x400 pickups, but I was nailing them at the end. When I showed him the splits, Coach Vaughan was pleased with the work. As I was leaving the track, a lady who had been out there jogging, passed by and said to me, "I want to be like you when I grow up!" Too Funny.

Sunday, Victoria and I met MikeK and we went back out to those Wyndhaven hills. On the first loop, we saw Mike Jones, Tim, and Kathy and they took us on a longer loop up Josey Lane. We did three of those suckers before the day was out. MikeK hit a huge pot hole and flatted the front and the back. That was a long stop in the middle of the ride.
