The Tallest Man on Earth covers "Graceland."

"Cheers to New York’s new governor, Andrew Cuomo, who’s vowed to restructure and maybe even close the state’s notorious juvenile justice facilities: Cuomo said he understands the importance of keeping jobs, but that doesn’t justify the cost to the taxpayer and the risk to the young people who are in programs that aren’t working, many of them hundreds of miles from home. 'An incarceration program is not an employment program. If people need jobs, let’s get people jobs,' he said in his address Wednesday." source: Prison Law Blog.

Today's planned workout: 4 mi run (sprint intervals), 30 min swim. Today's actual workout: dunno yet, headed there post-work. Update: got in 5 horrible miles on the treadmill, and 15 min in the pool. I remembered, much to my delight, that my triathlon training has yet to begin. Right now I'm just marathon training and chose to add in some swimming as pre-tri-training. OK, that makes me feel better about my weak swimming....

My thighs are burning from Monday's bootcamp (at least I think that's what it's from, it's hard to know at this point). I look ridiculous walking up and down stairs and I'm sure my clients are confused as to my ridiculous gait. I'm also feeling frustrated. I've been adhering to my training schedule, and my days feel full, and yet it doesn't seem like I'm doing enough, training-wise. I'm frustrated with myself for still not eating as healthily as I would like, and I guess I'm anxious to see progress and improvement (yeah, why don't I look like this yet?? ha), and I wish I could devote a full 2-3 hours a day (oh, and also that I had a personal trainer/coach and chef, etc), but that's just not a reality.

Stand With Haiti, a video from Oxfam America on the one year anniversary of the devastating earthquake in Haiti: "A devastating quake a year ago left Haiti's capital in ruins. Oxfam America's Yolette Etienne describes what her country needs to recover: patience, dreams, and hard work."
