My phone is crazy. It has a history of resetting itself at random times, especially when I am waiting for a call. Well now it has gotten worse. When I make a call (only while up in Colorado) it works fine… as long as I stand still. If I move at all the call tends to drop, my phone loses connection with the network and it starts to wibble for a couple of seconds. Sometimes it recovers, sometimes it needs to be reset before I can make a call again… Gues it it missing Houston!!!
… sure is harder than at sea-level.
I am up in Colorado (Fort Collins) for training this week. The training is not physical training, but work related training. Last night I took a drive down to Boulder (about an hour drive) and went to train with the local branch of our Capoeira group. It was fun to see the local group, although almost everyone I know was not there, except for Leomar, who was teaching the class. Anyway, I very quickly found how much harder your body has to work when you are not used to the altitude. Both my lungs and muscles felt the strain, and today I ache like I had worked out twice as long and twice as hard as I actually did!
I knew this would be the case (being harder to train) but it is one thing to know it and another to experience it!
|We went up to DC last weekend to visit Sherwin, Mum Mum’s brother for a couple of days, as well as to visit DC and to get away from work for a couple of days. The trip was fun and relaxing although my feet were not happy with me, what with all the walking we did around the sights and museums. That aside, we met some really interesting characters. Here is a quick recap of the idiots we saw;
I am sure I have missed one or two, but those are the main ones, apart from the incredible amount of idiots in DC who could not share the pavement.
More photos will be uploaded soon.
Added more book list functionality. I can now add books that I want but have not yet bought (as opposed to those sitting on the bookshelf waiting to be read) and for the books not yet released that I want to buy when they are released (mainly so I can keep track of them!!)
Not without some rain, but we did manage to play, and finish the round. When the rain came, it was a heavy drizzle, which was amazingly cooling while it lasted, but the humidity did increase afterwards.
We played at Hermann Park, and having not played in well over a month, hitting an 87 is not bad, even on that short course. There were two holes where I had a bad tee shot, and tried to do too much with the second, which resulted in a triple and quadruple bogey, but other than that I played really well, and ohh… I again have Celebrex to thank for allowing my back to not cause me loads of pain!!!
As you can probably figure, I have been having lower back problems, and Celebrex seems to be the only thing that is helping at the moment.
Trip to Plano, then day trip to Austin for Cheryl and Jay’s wedding, all in 6 days… and that does not include the trip to Port Arthur on Saturday… poor car is road weary, and all I can say is YAY for Celebrex… my back would never have survived without it!!!
