It was a Pbttttth week. First my knee felt weird. I poked at it suspiciously. I bailed on the track workout I had planned and did something easier instead. Then Tuesday I didn’t get any sleep. None. It was a late night to begin with and then I just stared at the clock. “10pm I should be in bed. 12:30am I am so wound up I’m never going to sleep. 2 am, I’m going to fall asleep now. 3 am, I give up. 4 am, I can get an hour of sleep now. It’ll be like a nap. 4:40am nope, might as well make eggs for breakfast.” So Wednesday’s workout was shot. Thursday I ended up working all day. Like 8am to 9pm – with only short breaks between things. Maybe I could have squeezed some lifting in – but at this point I had thrown in the towel on the week. But Friday I redeemed myself. I. Did. My. Workout. YES!!!! I have a great record of not doing long swims on my own. I have made workouts and then talked myself out of it. “Eh, that’s a bad set. I’m bored, that’s enough.” So this time…. I designed my workout based on one I coach for the Masters Swim Practice. Then I laminated the workout. I got a special dry erase crayon. I told people I was going to do it. And I did it! I was so proud. Which is good because Saturday morning I was pinned to my bed. Sleep weighed me down so heavily it felt impossible to get up. Sometimes things don’t go as planned. I got only one solid workout in this week. The rest were kinda “Meh.” Sometimes one good one is enough. There will be others.

We've been year-round bike commuters in Minneapolis for over 10 years. Yet we've still been dependent on our car for getting out to the suburbs and for certain errands. Now our car can be saved just for big trips. We're even dreaming up one night camp 🏕 trips with Candy 🚲️!I have come to learn that being “neutral” or apolitical is part of white privilege. Groups, organizations, and businesses that deny their politics while justifying being “neutral” are part of the problem. They give space for white supremacy and racism to hide.You know what’s a great birthday 🎂 🎁 present? Being validated and encouraged as an entrepreneur BIPOC woman coach. I had a really fun hike/run with some other BIPOC women this morning, I’m having a front step fire (instead of zoom check in) with a couple founding ZED members, and I get to go on connecting hike/walk/runs with all sorts of wonderful people in our community like Jen! Thanks for helping me see my value in the world 🥰
