Home: And Its Still Daylight

Big workouts today!  I got just one step closer to those really big mini goals this morning.  I have several mini goals that don't really mean much in the grand scheme but they matter to me, for example:

1. Do 1 pull up
2. Get up Park City Hill on my bike (one mile up hill, and its a pretty big climb)
3. Get in the Overweight Category instead of the Obese on the BMI chart

Today I met with my running buddy at 6am and we were off for just over 4 miles and today was just not my day.  I couldn't really get it legs were just not participating.  And then about mile 2 I took a step that just shot pain up my hip.  I have been having some hip pain but this was really painful all of a sudden.  I was able to finish the run it was just not as good as it could have been. 

Once back to the gym I did a few thousand meters on the rowing machine and then moved over to the pull up machine.  I was able to do 3 assisted pull ups today...3, 3 FREAKIN' pull ups!
One day I hope to make that unassisted but for now Ill take 3 assisted ones.  BTW: for those haters out there lets put this in perspective, when I do a pull up I am pulling up 260 and most of those people are lifting about 150.  Its a big deal to me!

I was just on top of the moon after my 3 pull ups...

Work was better today, not sure if it was my pull ups or if it was really better but today was not as craptastic as yesterday!  I was so excited today because I didn't have any ballgames or plans after work.  I was actually going to get home at a reasonable hour and do some things around my house that I have neglected for weeks.

I did have to run to town and take out the garbage at the office building I clean and I ran by the gym to get in a half hour swim at the pool before heading home.  I got an amazing swim tonight, it was short but very effective.  I was home by 7:30pm....

Home in the Daylight!!!!

Once I got home I got my car packed up and started dinner all while coloring my hair.  I had 4 inches of roots and you can't call that ombre, its just unkempt roots.  So I got everything done but my hair was still going so I took that opportunity to chill out and rest my hip a bit. 

I don't quite know what to do with myself with all this free time, if tomorrow goes like this again I might mop my kitchen floor, its been forever since I did that one!
