Some days, just describing the activity is enough. This is one of those days.
6 a.m.: Swim with Fortius. Timed 100 dropped to 1:27 on a dare from Coach Gerardo. Nice breakthrough! But it also came at the mid-point of the workout instead of at the end. Still, I'll take it!
8 a.m.: Weight training (legs and core)
9 a.m.: Podiatrist to pick up orthotic inserts. I've been running on my flat feet for the past week and a half. My feet and and IT bands have paid the price. It's a welcome relief to have arches again.
10 a.m.- 6:30 p.m.: Work, which was explosive today. I can say that almost literally since I work for a videogames developer.
7 p.m.: After driving from Burbank back to Sherman Oaks, Steph and I met up and headed to the Hollywood Bowl to see Gustavo Dudamel conduct the LA Philharmonic performing Gershwin and Bernstein classics. The pianist stole the show, though I could watch for hours Dudamel mesmerize the orchestra and the audience. Total command and control with grace, charm and confidence.
11:10 p.m. Returned home after fighting Bowl traffic. Writing blog. Eyes drooping. Body sagging. Bed calling.
11:11 p.m. Good night. Let's do it again tomorrow.
109 days and counting.
