Time Is Flying By Because I AM That Busy

What Happened To February?? Wait, What Happened To January?? Its Already March WHAT?!?!?!



ORTHO:

The Ortho world took a hit this past week and I am way bummed about it.


After my San Diego trip, I was full stream ahead. I literally landed in the Grand Valley, unpacked, packed, and went from sea level to 7,200 feet in 14 hours time. MAD Racing was invited to time the Regional Youth Cross Country Invitational. Teams from New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, And Idaho were lined up to tackle the groomed trails around the Odin Rec Center. Couldn't Be Happier


Live IS Good!! Working in the mornings, snow shoeing in the evenings, and sleeping in yet another bed. February was ending on a high note. No Complaints


But Monday Morning, The Chest Felt Off. Super Bummed!! That first week of March was packed in with clients, gym routines lined out, and an aggressive cycling schedule. All That Went Out The Window

Classic 
I started calling clients and they could hear it in my Southern Georgia Whiskey Cigar Smoking Voice that I was sick. Of Course, everyone knew I was in CA and promptly associated the C-19 virus. We live in such a fear base society for sure. And rescheduling is such an inconvenience for all parties involved. Another real downer was I had coordinated a video/commercial for my practice last Saturday.

Sound Asleep 
I hired a film crew and scored a willing model for simple knee and ankle release pieces to be shot. Designed a story board for how I was thinking things would flow, wrote out scripts, and was pretty excited overall. Rebooking that was a royal pain in the A$$. Sucked Really


And all of this was my own damn fault. It wasn't the traveling. It wasn't the late nights. It wasn't burning the candle at both ends. It wasn't the forgiven uncomfortable beds. It wasn't the three jobs. It WAS the fact that I didn't wash my Phuc-N hands Sunday afternoon.


On Sunday, after the relay races, a number of the head coaches sought me out while I was breaking this down and loading the work trailer. They appraised me for all of the work I put in, how I conducted myself all weekend, they complimented me on my empowering words to their racers at the start lines, the constant reassuring messages to each racer before the tag of their relay leg, and one coach asked me about a possible interview via a phone call later in the week. This means I shook a lot of hands and was starving at the end of the day. The MAD Crew had prepared homemade chili, sliced avocados, grated cheese, and tortilla chips. Covered In Germs, I Ate



What do you suppose the idea is behind SPAM Calling and SPAM Comments?? Does anyone actually bite on these? Would you really answer this call?? Does anyone clink on the SEE THE SWIMSUITS LINK or FIND YOUR NEW LOVE HERE LINK??  My phone rings about 3 to 6 times a day with these Colorado Spam Calls. I have listed my number on the Do Not Call List but to no prevail. Those Bastards



GOALS:


  1. Wash My Hands
  2. Eat My Veggies
  3. Hydrate
  4. More Fruits
  5. Slowly Start Morning Calisthenics
  6. Ease Back Into The Road Miles 


Its very unfortunate that it takes a deadly outbreak to remind us to wash our hands, takes an F4 tornado ripping through a grass roots town to prompt us to a Red Cross donation, or a tragic auto collision to bring awareness to just how precious life truly is.

Be Kind, Think Of Others, & Smile,
Cheers

  4. I agree with you on the time thing...seems to me it was Christmas only yesterday!! Scary...or what!!!
    A fear society? Absolutely, here too! There is all the panic buying, people stripping everything off the shelves like locusts, without a thought for anyone else!😕
    I really hope you feel better soon, and that it isn't the dreaded virus...
    Oh yes, the scammers...they're just about everywhere.
    I've tried blocking them too, but they always seem to find another way!😬

    Well, in spite of everything...have a good day!😊😊

    Cheers

  5. Time is on the fast speed mode. Incredible, isn't it. Have to make sure we pay attention to cleanliness in this crazy virus period.
    Enjoy your day, Padre!

  6. I truly hope you are feeling better. Dammit. I got the stomach flu once because I rubbed my eyes after seeing a puker. Lesson learned. Getting on a plane in 2 days so I can go to Florida, see my parents, and run in the Everglades. Whatever was I thinking?

    I need spring!

  9. Oh no I hope you are feeling better by now Padre. It really is hard to remember not to shake hands when you meet someone these days, it's always been the polite thing to do. It's a crazy world we live in right now,but at least we will all have super clean hands :)

  12. I'm afraid that the ones who answer those calls are the most vulnerable - like elderly people who are less sharp than they used to be. It's sad. My dad has answered those spam calls :(

    Get strong again. I hope that you can be out enjoying the start of spring very soon.

  13. I am so sorry you are not feeling well. And though a pain in the ass to reschedule appointments, a necessity.

    As to the annoying calls. if you have a landline, you can sign your phone up for NOMOROBO for free. The phone might ring once and then disconnect. One or two calls might get through.

    On the cellphone, I use an free app called Hiya. Hiya flags which calls are spam.

    Rest well and feel better.

  16. Time passed by but from what I can see you did so many good and constructive things. I wish I could say the same but at the moment here in Italy we are stuck at home with this new virus outbreak. The only thing we can get out for is to go to work, go to the pharmacy or hospital and shop for food. Every other store, activity or possibility of going out is prohibited. Even if there are many things one can do at home on spare time, in a certain way I still feel like is a great loss of time. But that is all we have to do to stop this outbreak, there was no easier sacrifice ever.

  19. Yeah, time goes by so fast and that's why we should try to make the most of each day
    Around here (Lisbon) I have not heard that there have been many SPAM calls. Emails do, from time to time I receive them and they are immediately marked as SPAM.
    Hopefully, this damn COVI-19 can be treated and controlled quickly.
    I loved the last photo.
    Keep well
