Hi ho, Hi ho

it's off to camp I go....

I leave for tri-camp Friday morning.  Have I packed?  Um, that would be a resounding "no". I do have a list and I did start a pile for things I need to pack.  But as yet it's a *very* small pile....and no, that doesn't mean I don't need to take a lot of stuff.  In all I'm staying in Illinois for a week so I need quite a bit of stuff.  I'm trying to learn from past trips though and take only the bare essentials.  Somehow that just never seems to work out.  I typically end up with an over-packed suitcase and then come home with a bunch of clothes that were never worn.   But I have quite a few workouts to get thru, and it's going to be toasty, and I'm....well.....okay, a sweater.  Yes, it's true.  When I did weights one day after running, my trainer wondered if I had just gotten out of the shower.  Yeah, I sweat like *that*.  So lots of workout clothes will be required. 

The other days that I'm there, I'll be working from my brother's house and I'm just tossing in shorts and t-shirts.  We don't do video conferencing at work, so technically I could stay in my PJs all day.  But that would probably not set a good example for my nieces.

On the 'injury' front, I had another PT session this morning.  It wasn't with my usual guy, as he is *impossible* to get an appointment with on short notice, but one of his partners.  She's pretty good, but a little less...aggressive.  The look on her face was priceless when she asked when my next event was and I told her I was leaving for a 3 day camp on Friday.  At this point, I'd say it's somewhere between 85 and 90%.  Not 'normal', but not seriously sore like it was.  I have an easy run on my schedule for tomorrow, the first run I'll have done in more than a week.  I'm a little anxious about that.  I did some treadmill hill walking on Monday, and it was a bit tight afterward.   And with camp, topped off by a 5k on Monday, and my first "A" tri of the season a mere two weeks away....yeah, anxious is a good word.  One day at a time.  That's a good motto, eh?

And so, I'm finish up at work tomorrow (early I hope).....get packed up....and to board an early, early flight on Friday to Chi-town!  Hmm...seems like I was just there.  Oh, that's right, I *was*.  The wedding two weeks ago where I managed to damage myself....guess I'm coming full circle.  Wish me luck.  I hope I survive the weekend.  If I can do this much damage at a wedding, it's hard to say how much I can do at a tri camp.  Happy long weekend!

Glad the injury is better. Fingers crossed for you that it continues to improve in the next two weeks. Have fun at your camp!
