Race nerves or hormone release, not sure what is going on.
I NEVER eat chocolates, yet yesterday was a serious cravings day and no, I'm not pregger's.....too old for that sport's fans....
After a particularly stressful day at work, I headed off to my chiropractor's appointment. My doctor has been working on an old ankle injury that has just flared up again unexpectedly. It is not really my ankle but in-between the ankle bone and foot on both sides. Originally caused a million years ago from an equestrian fall, it has been pretty "stable", sorry for the pun, the last twenty years or so.
I know you're thinking that all this pounding from running all these miles must have something to do with it, I'm not ruling that out by any stretch of the imagination, but I truly don't think that has been the reason.
After all the manipulation and magic a chiropractor does, I headed home to make a really healthy dinner and do laundry (the excitement of my life is overwhelming these days). That's when it hit!!! I NEED chocolate!!
I hardly ever have junk food in my house, but I rummaged around and found a box of chocolate covered cherries that had been given to me by a client at Christmas. They were still sealed and stuffed in a cupboard.....yummy.....and no, I didn't eat them all....but I did have three and a couple of glasses of red wine.....how decadent is that???
Trust me, after my crazy misspent youth, I know I've hit middle age when I think I'm a wild thing when I've eaten three chocolates and had a couple of glasses of wine....I don't think that I'll be needing the Betty Ford Clinic anytime soon, but I do know that the pre-race jitters are starting to set in!!!
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
