"Spread it on!!"

If you've seen "Super Troopers", the above quote probably sounds familiar. I represents exactly how busy I am at the moment: between summer school, work and training, I'm pretty much hopping from one task to the next with very little down time between anything. I don't see it letting up anytime soon...

Let's talk about work.
The beach is heading into it's busy season; point of fact, 4th of July is this weekend and it's arguably our busiest day of the year. Thankfully, booze is no longer allowed on the beach, yet some people insist on drinking and swimming; if you can't have fun without getting sloshed, you have a problem. I've cut back on my hours to 32 a week, but with school and training, that's still a lot.

Summer school starts today and I'll be in class three days a week for 8 hours a week total. It sounds like no big deal, but add in study time double that of class time and it starts looking insane.

I love training. There's nothing I'd rather do and if I could get paid to do it, I totally would. That being said, I'm laying my base for my build up to Xterra Nationals in Tahoe in October. My coach has me doing HUGE volume to prepare for it. If I manage to survive, I'll head into that race more fit than ever ad ready to do something very special. I'm worried about injuries, though (yeah, it's THAT much volume). I trust my coach, but this much training is new teritory for me by a lot and when I start getting into this many weekly hours, things start breaking down.

Anyway, I'm off to class and the three wotkouts I have scheduled for today. Told you I was busy..

Last thing: a friend of mine sent me an e-mail about pics he's put on facebook. I signed up just to view the photos and no I'm getting a zillion e-mails from people who want to be my "friend" that I haven't spoken to in 10 years. It's a colossal waste of time; don't drink the Kool-Aid.

The Kool-Aid is good. Drink it.
