Maybe that's what you're asking. Maybe not... it's alright. :) I've been so busy lately that I haven't blogged much and I'm slowly getting caught up on reading all of your blogs. I know I sound like a broken record (is there any new technology analogy that works other than the whole broken record thing???), but I'm trying! :)
The last week was a bit of a blur. After coming home from California and our nightmare of a century on Monday, the week kicked my butt full force on Tuesday. Work was busy, and training started. Not that I haven't been training a ton the last 5 months, but I finally felt like training started. It's like June 1st hit and a light switched on. I can pinpoint why. Do you ever have that?
We finally went to the state park to swim... and bike... and run. That's a sure sign that it's tri season. And you know what, I loved every minute of it! We did multiple bricks this week, some speed, some long stuff. 200 miles in biking and nearly 30 miles of running (we won't talk about swimming, but I did swim so that counts). It was the first week that it was hot, and I was tired. And hungry. Holy appetite! But like I said, I'm loving it. The countdown to REV3 Cedar Point is at 99 days. Say what?
We're racing this weekend and I'm looking forward to it. So many people raced this weekend (huge congrats to Kevin, Jon, Kim, Jeff, Annie, Mandy, Kristin, Matty-O, Heather, BDD, Meredith, Melissa, all of my Trakkers teammates and Team Type 1 peeps in Quassy and everyone else that raced this weekend... I know there were more of you!) - I'll be honest... I felt like I wasn't one of the cool kids! :) But next weekend is my time. Great local race, lots of competition, many of my friends - it should be a good time!
Totally random (I'm all over the place with this post aren't I?). I just saw this on a blog I read and I love it especially for someone who struggles with self image a lot (like me):
I love this one too:
it says "My Butt is Big and round like the letter C and ten thousand lunges have made it rounder but not smaller and that’s just fine. It’s a space heater for my side of the bed. It’s my ambassador to those who walk behind me. It’s a border collie that herds skinny women away from the best deals at clothing sales. My butt is big and that’s just fine and those who might scorn it are invited to kiss it."
I'm working on the self image thing... and the confidence thing. that's for another post though...
One more thing - TAAN: Team Angels and Ninjas. Heard of it? If not, you are totally missing out. Check out this post on Jason's blog. Very cool group of people, very cool mission.
Have a great week and who knows... I might break records by blogging more than once this week. :)
