I've found that Zyrtec is superior to Claritin with regards to the ability to halt allergy symptoms. However, it also halts me....very drowsy and "out of it". May try taking it before bed to see if it still works the next morning without the Zombie Lisa effect.
When I said I was treating the Sprint this weekend like a glorified brick, I wasn't kidding. At this point I have basically ZERO planning done and just this morning finally decided that we're driving down Sat morning vs. staying in a hotel Friday night. Geez. It might behoove me to figure out what I'm wearing, taking, etc sometime before Friday night, ya think?
The houseguests have departed. It was great seeing them, but I now need therapy more than ever before. I'm just sayin'
Running group got rained out this evening. Actually, it was called due to lightning. I am sooooo bummed. I was looking forward to it all day.
After searching for months, finally settled on new dinnerware and bought it today at lunchtime. Our old stuff is highly chipped/damaged. The new stuff is being washed and the old stuff is getting packed away for donation. I'm very happy about that.
Cycled to work today and for the first time kept it in the middle ring up front (vs. granny gear) and I think it was easier to control the bike that way. Of course I was only going about 4.5 mph up the hill, but that's another issue...
Blood tests came back normal (wrt PVCs). I have a followup appt in Sep to finallize next steps, but I think the recommendation for now is "keep on keepin' on" - no meds, no cardiologist. That's good news.
Remember when the chain broke that I wear my cross on? Well I put it on a cheap chain. That broke. Got the original chain and the bale repaired. The chain broke again in another spot. I told the people at the jewelry store that I needed a new chain that was thin enough not to overpower the cross, but heavy enough to suffer abuse 24x7 because I don't take it off and I put it though a lot of stuff. They suggested a wheat chain. It's awesome.
Having second thoughts about the triathlons in September. My heart just doesn't seem to be into the multisport stuff this season. I resent not being able to run as much as my HM training plan calls for because I need to get in my swim and cycling workouts. In the past, I've found triathlon to be addictive. Finish one and can't wait to do the next. Will I feel that way after this weekend? I hope so. If not, I seriously need to reconsider my plans.
Went to the new Aquatic Center on Friday. Water is a bit chillier than the pool I usually swim in but there were lanes-a-plenty and the water is crystal clear.
School registration is this week. I now officially have two in high school. It's gonna' be a loooooong year.
