My funk

I'm in a funk today. It's a beautiful day, my hubby is biking to basketball and I feel like doing NOTHING. This is a relatively easy week for me training wise and I think my body knows that and is being lazy (yes, I've convinced myself of that my body is telling me something. Sounds like it makes sense right?).

Got outside on the bike on Tuesday for the first time since the Ironman. Tom told me I looked like a rookie on a really nice bike. Lovely - it's weird how strange I felt and that I needed to relearn my bike handling skills. I have to get used to the ungodly noise my wheels make when I'm not pedaling - it's like they know that I'm coasting and are bitching at me to get moving. If being yelled at is a reason that I don't have a coach, why did I pay money for these wheels? :) They look good, I'll give them that, but I think they are going to make me work this year! By the end of the 2.5 hours, I felt like myself again, bitching about the wind and all. :)

Yesterday I got annoyed about something stupid and went out for a sluggish 5 miler. 52 minutes later (yeah, that's 8:35's again) I was home. I don't think that Tom likes running with me anymore. He said that I didn't give him fair warning that I was going out for a speed workout... sorry to bust your bubble honey, but I didn't feel like it was a speed workout! Hehehe... I'm just getting better.

I'm super excited for my weekend. Of course b-ball is on so we'll watch that. Tomorrow night we're meeting friends at a new restaurant called The Pub. It looks awesome and the menu... let's just say I better be motivated to work out tomorrow because I could eat everything and I'm sure the drinks will compliment the meal well. Then 2 easy workouts this weekend, some relaxing, hopefully a visit to my mom and dad's and nothing else! Gotta love weekends like that!

Have you checked out the rest of the blogs out there... I think the "funk" is endemic during this time of year! Hang in there and enjoy your weekend!

2.5 hours is pretty dang good for your first bike in months. I would survive 1 hour because my butt would be hurting!
