Re: How was your week? Oct. 23 Edition [Dr. Tigerchik]
My goals were:
day off from running --- done
bike miles > run miles --- done! because 55.5 > 41
swim 5x --- done
work on run pacing (Easy is easy and fast is fast) --- doing better

We had "fall break" last week, which meant I had Friday "off." This means the students are gone, so no teaching. I had given an exam on Wednesday, and those take so long to grade (65 students). I did not get much of a break :P but overall it was a good week.

I did learn last night that my cousin's wife has inoperable, stage-4 lung cancer and there's not a great prognosis. I knew she had cancer, and she's been through chemo (now on monthly maintenance chemo). I thought she was in remission - I guess I assumed maintenance chemo meant remission. She, her wife, and their two small kids have been at my parents' house for the past week (they visit about 3 times a year; my parents loooove their sort-of-grandkids, the kids love them, and the moms like these visits too). I am devastated that this family member may not have much life left; they just don't know.

maybe she's born with it, maybe it's chlorine
If you're injured and need some sympathy, PM me and I'm very happy to write back.
