This week did not get off to a good start. My brain hurts and I’m feeling a little overstretched. Work stuff…absolutely nothing to do with training. I think my brain is only capable of handling so many things and it did not feel like handling training. I fixed my flat on Monday night and knew my heart was not up for a swim. So I called it a night early, woke up early and got cracking at the office by 6:30 am. By the end of the day I was starting to wonder where my mojo was for our first indoor trainer session at Bow Cycle.
I have the best teammates and friends. I e-mailed Tara and told her that I needed a kick in the pants. She told me that I needed to show up so that I could show her my spiffy new aero bars and so that she could show me her new hair. Her e-mail cracked me up and if nothing else I knew I was looking forward to catching up with her.
I rolled into Bow and set my bike up. As my friends came in they all congratulated me on my shiny new PR at the Thanksgiving 10K. Thanks guys! I haven’t seen a lot of these folks since the Ironman Canada weekend and just seeing their smiling faces was starting to bring the mojo back.
And then I talked to my friend Kelly…and she signed up for Ironman Canada, as did our friend Mike! I’m super excited that these two are racing IMC next year too. I can’t wait to get in some bike training with Kelly as we prepare for our first Ironman!
As for the workout? It was pretty good. My butt needs to toughen up to the saddle again I think. Painful!! Oh well, an hour and a half done on the trainer, plus some core…and a rejuvenated spirit. Then home for some hot chocolate with marshmallows. Now off to bed!!
