Can't Stop... Won't Stop!

I ran two miles today and felt strong and ready to keep going at the end but as a promise to myself I am taking this first week easy as I get back my running feet. Wow that was a long sentences!

I'm having a great week, not that anything too cool or unique is going on just that I am having a great week and keeping the positive energy flowing. I may also be super excited because I'm traveling to see my amazing boyfriend, Chris this weekend. He lives quite far away, 2.5 hours and I have not traveled to his town for several weeks. A few hours in the car is worth it to experience a few days with the guy that I love. :)

Chakotay is out to complete a ritual and gets caught up in a Kazon initiation ritual. In the end all is well and things are set straight. Not a great episode and the first of a whole season arc exploring the Kazon.
Boom that is Nog from DS9, well the actor who plays Nog that is.

The 37's

Now I am not one to typically complain when I am at a place of business but today I had to make an exception to this policy. I was at the gym and a group of loud obnoxious boys were in the pool not for fitness but as some type of party. These boys were not following rules, diving and entering the lap lanes despite signage saying to leave these lanes for swimmers only. When one was in my way I surfaced and said "get out of the lane" and the boy moved away slowly. Later I heard one of the boys mockingly say, "get out of the lane." At this point I was just about done and I ended my swim at 1/4 mile as opposed to my intended 1/2 mile. This is a gym and a fitness center not a public pool for a party or some other shit. There should be parents monitoring the kids and the gym staff should be more aggressive in handling complaints. When I complained the staff said I was not the only on to complain. If I'm not wrong a private business should be able to kick anyone out of their business who is not following rule s and guidelines, right?

On a happier note I had a fantastic session with one of my clients that helped me to really remember why it is that I am a speech/language pathologist and particularly why I enjoy working with adolescents who have some more troubling behaviors.

The 37's
The Voyager finds a group of people from 1937 on a planet in the Delta Quadrant and one of them is Amelia Earhart. Turns out that a bunch of people were taken there way back when and are now living on this planet. Over 100,000 humans. The crew is offered a place to live but they all decide to stay on Voyager.

Learning Curve

I ran my first mile in over 2.5 months and it felt amazingly awesome in every way. Even though the weather was a bit chilled and the wind was a little biting I smiled the entire way. I've been waiting for this moment for a long time and it went the exact way I wanted it to go. :)

Today was also great because I got a lot of work completed on the yearbook at my school and there is only one page left at this point. WOO HOO! The yearbook is a lengthy and time consuming process that I love and at the same time get increasingly annoyed with. You could call it a love hate but truly it is a love fest about 90% of the time.

Today: 1.3 miles at a 9:14 pace. Slow but I'm incredibly happy

Learning Curve
Story A: A bunch of Maquis crew members are douche bags and Tuvok is in charge of whipping them into shape. He ends up succeeding of course as Tuvok is want to do but through a crazy freak accident not his training.

Story B: The gel packs in the engine room have somehow developed an illness that apparently is from some cheese that Neelix was making so someone could have their mac and cheese.

This is a bit of a lame duck ending to the first season but wasn't supposed to be according to wikipedia.

Faces & Jetrel

So this boy has once again hit point where I just can't accept that I've foolishly let myself put on ten pounds since the holiday season. Running or no running this is not acceptable folks! Now I'm motivated to change and correct my mistakes and yes it will help a little bit that I can start running tomorrow :) I'm able to make this change, I've done it before, I'll do it again and I'll make it happen.

I've laid out a map for the next several months to get me to the Goldy's Run 10 Mile race, the Salk It To Me 5K and the Buffalo Triathlon. I'm just not decided if it will be the sprint or olympic distance. The only part that worries me is that swim the rest I can fake my way through and still succeed. You cannot fake it in the water.

205 :(

Upper and Lower Body Weight Lifting

The Vidiian's are at it again and this time they feel that a Klingon will be able to fight off their disease. The split Torres in two and things are just odd but its interesting for character development.

Neelix's past as a warrior is brought to the present when a war criminal turned good comes to cure him of a disease that he has potentially become infected with. Once again Star Trek at its character plot drive best.

Today I didn't want to go to the gym because I honestly just was not feeling it at the end of my work day but.. I went and I am very glad that I did. Lifting has been interesting and I'm sure I'm not doing as much as I should be but hey I am doing it and that counts for something, Right?

The week has been going well and today went super great to be honest. I had my review with the school principal. I was a bit nervous to start but I didn't need to be I know. The kids were extremely well behaved and were able to help me show what they have learned while the principal watched. I have not had my formal meeting yet but I got an email with a very positive message. Days like this make me remember why I love my job and it helps to energize me.

Workout: Upper Body Lifting, 30 minutes on the Elliptical, 15 on the Bike, 1/2 mile in the pool

Cathexis: An alien being has invaded the ship and lots of crazy stuff happens. Turns out that Chakotay's spirit, which left his body is trying to help the crew from total disaster. Not a great episode... once again.

Heroes and Demons

One thing that I hate at the gym is when I am on the bike and about 10 minutes in... for lack of a better word my "undercarriage" goes numb. I am then stuck with numb bits and a whole heck of a lot of time left on the bike. I then think to myself "this can't be healthy for me boys, why am I doing this?"

Apart from my junk going numb it was a great day at the gym today! I have been on a kick of weight lifting at the gym to help my knees gain some strength. I hope it is working because I get to run very soon and I couldn't be more happy. I am also happy because I have been paired up with a running buddy through a program called I Run 4 Michael which pairs a runner with a child who has disabilities as a social connection. I've been paired since December but now I actually get to start running for her and I can't wait to get a T-Shirt and other swag to show off at the races.

Today: Lifting (Legs), Bike and Swim

Heroes and Demons- Voyager meets Beowulf and it sucks! Nothing further is needed!
