After a chaotic week, I think things are beginning to calm down again.

Mr. Waddler came home from the hospital yesterday. After all the tests, the findings showed early stages of heart disease. No blockage or heart attack. He is on a heart monitor for the next 30 days. It is good to have him home.

Hooch is gone to another cheer competition. Her knee still hurts but does not want to let her team down.

Bino is off all day to a bowling tournament. He had a new ball drilled yesterday and can;t wait to give it a try.

For me, my training took a vacation. I'll take today to catch my breath and catch up. Tomorrow should be back on schedule. That is why schedules are always in pencil.

Good Luck to Joe- He is running the Rocketcity Marathon today.

This sign perfectly describes my life currently.

Tuesday recap- The day started perfect with Master's swim. I got a workout in that totaled almost 1,000m. That wasn't the only first - I did 8 x 50. Coached then pushed me and I did my first 100m without stopping. It doesn't seem like much to many but to me who has never swam before it feels huge.

The day started going downhill fast! The doctor that I am friend and coworker with handed in her resignation. I have worked with her for over 6 years. WOW, I was blown away when I saw her tears.

The plan for the evening was spin class. The weather turned bad with a snow storm. I had to pick up Bino from a bowling match andd then get Hooch to work. Going to the gym did not happen as planned.

I got home and began to tell hubby about my day. He became unresponsive to my questions. He stopped talking I called 911. The squad took him to the ER. They did an EKG which showed changes since 1 year ago. He was admitted.

Today- I spent the day at the hospital. They did a cardiac catheterization and a few other test.So far everything is Ok. More tests are scheduled for Thursday so hopefully he will be home soon.
I'm exhausted now.

GO BUCKEYES!!!!!!!!!

I don't usually watch college football but if I do then I am a Ohio State Fan. I have loved them since Woody Hayes. I also graduated from there. What a crazy finish to the year. I just have one thing to say-"GO BUCKEYES!"

Another thing that pumped me up was watching IM Kona on TV yesterday. I always leave that show with a few tears and very inspired. The last 30 min is the best to watch. So much emotion.

My workout today was good. I started with a swim. I did drills to improve my form and add some endurance. Then I headed up to spin class. It was an interval workout with the emphasis in zone 3. I left the gym feeling pretty good about my training this week.
Waddling into a new week..............
Swim = 600m
Spin = 1 hour
