My normal walk into the office today left no doubts in my mind that I chose the right day to schedule a recovery day. After a faster than normal run pace for 5 miles on Monday, last night's SPIN class left me and my quads empty of all available glycogen stores.
I am spent and D*MN does it feel GOOD!
It has me so motivated to be so tired that I went ahead and bought some more gear to complete my lovely "triathlon" race kit for this season.
So I hopped on over to Team Estrogen and bought this pair of shorts to go under my skirt. Because Comfort and large thighs prevent me from even considering the bikini-briefs that Zoot! recommends. I'm my own fashion icon!! PROMISE TO Nancy: When the shorts come in, I will post a picture and model my new race kit!!
SO with all this gear, I guess the next step is to add some more races to the calendar. I had thought about going to Boulder to visit Bolder and do the Bolder Peak Triathlon since Jim and I want to go to CO & it is close to my birthday. I also considered signing up for SteelHead as Nancy suggested since so many of you are also doing that race as prep for Ironman Florida.
In the end, I have had to settle for local races. Jim and I would LOVE to head to Colorado to race and ride AND I would love to spend time racing with you guys, but I simply don't have enough "Leave Time" at work thanks to the big M and treatment. So I have to choose my races with that in mind. After all, I need to save up some vacation time to come down to Panama City in November to volunteer at Ironman Florida!! You didn't think I would sit home while you guys kick butt in Florida together, did you?
So I am officially adding the Colonial Half Iron Distance Triathlon to my calendar on Sept 24th.
Hmm.. my Lunch break has expired...Back to work!
Keep Living STRONG!
