OK, what man took this picture? Seriously, most of us don't even have boobs but we look like we're falling out of our suits. Good stuff. Anyway, I feel weird today. I keep calling people trying to figure out what I'm 'supposed' to be doing right now. I am determined to take one whole week off from any tri activity for physical but mostly mental health. I need to WANT to do this again. I'm feeling pretty good, recovered mostly and have been eyeing my bike all day. It's a beautiful day out perfect for a ride or run but??? The other evening I was sitting on the sofa at 6:30 with a glass of wine in my hand and looked at Ryan and said - is this what normal people do after work? He said - no, this is what normal people with no children do after work. Point taken and yes, I guess this is what normal people do. It's not like there's not 101 things I should do - mow the lawn, clean closets, spring clean the garage - but that's not fun. I guess that's what it boils down to, swimming, cycling and running are fun, cleaning, not so much. Oh, and the withdrawal symptoms are hideous...withdrawal from high activity level to zero AND from your training partners and friends. I've got the Jimmy leg at nite and I keep calling my training partners to see what they are doing. Some are going on 70+ mile rides today to which I replied f!@# that. How about a 5 mile ride to the coffee or ice cream shop? Or maybe a long walk with the dawgs? I'm trying to keep perspective on life and that SBR is not the ONLY thing in my life, or is it? I feel lonely today. So freakin weird!
