Aging and My Mid-Life Crisis

I can't believe that I am now 40. It sounds SO OLD. But I don't feel like I should be THAT old. Its depressing. I think I'm having a harder time accepting this then I did for when I turned 30.

It's scary. To be frank and a little macabre, you have to start planning for end of life stuff. There is a lot I have yet to do with my life. But to be planning old people stuff, its scary.

How much longer am I going to live? How can I do this the healthiest that I possibly can? Should I buy life insurance for my other half and I? How can I increase our retirement savings. (Going on a cruise a couple times a year is not helping with that savings.) At what age should I sign up for AARP?

I had one friend die of Pancreatic cancer this past year. It hit him hard and sadly fast. I had another friend in November pass due to complications with pneumonia and his diabetes.

Mini-Tri Day

Today, the kids all start school. I was hoping to get in the pool this afternoon, since all summer long it has been swarming with kids of all ages.

The pool was "closed" for maintenance. What?! The one day that I think I can get in and use it, it is closed?!?!

So I went for my tempo run on the treadmill at Ghetto Renew instead. I was sweating like a beast. It wasn't pretty. So I won't post a picture.

Now, I leave for work in an hour. If I bike, it will be like my own personal mini-triathalon day.
10 minute pool swim
5 mile tempo treadmill run
6 mile bike

If I include the 4 miles that I will at least be walking at work, does that count as a quadrathlon. With walking replacing the kayaking? 

Today's Yollar deal of the day is a $20 massage. As a Certified Massage Therapist and Holistic Health Practitioner, I do not like to spend more then $30 for a massage. This massage is a very welcome deal for my sore leggies after all this work today. 

With all of the massage therapists out there, if groupon, living social, amazon, and all of the other companies offered more massage deals, I think I would be a very happy girl.
