What a difference...

...a week makes!

Last week I could hardly drag my sorry ass around, let alone get out of bed or off the couch.

This week I'm BAAACCKK! Even after struggling with my Sunday run, I feel MUCH better. Maybe it was a "bug", maybe it was just being overly tired, I did waste an awful lot of energy stressing over the Try-a-Tri, a lot of energy! LMAO...

So, this week I'll put some serious thought into next year's agenda. I know there will be a couple of triathlons, a marathon and I'm still toying with the 50K Ultra....we will see.

Yesterday, I hit the gym after work and cycled "hard", also spent thirty minutes on the elliptical and thirty minutes on the rowing machine....I LOVE the rowing machine!

So, there you have it, short and sweet! Tonight is the office barbecue, tomorrow I'm doing dreaded taxes (again)....

Life's fun if you don't weaken,

Thanks everyone for the much needed support while I slugged my way through last week, and Wes, thanks for the much needed kick in the ass, (No sympathy from Wes, that's why he will ROCK IMFL!!).

Well, I'm delighted at your interpretation of my comment :-) but really, I'm tired. I'm just not allowed to give up!! LOL!!! I keep reminding myself:

Ironman is fun if you don't weaken!

Glad you're feeling better! Sometimes we just have those days/weeks.

Funny you mention planning next year. I started hashing out my plan last night. I'm overwhelmed already! So many races, so little time. Why is EVERYTHING going on in May? Gah, anyway, I'll figure it out.

Have fun!
