This morning, I noticed Bluebell's front tire was flat (at least slow leaks are better than flats on your ride, right?). In the 5 years I've owned her, this is the first flat in the front. That's right, folks. That tire has had the original tube straight off the floor for 5 years. Although I knew it was only a matter of time, I couldn't help but to think it was a bad omen.
Sure enough, I've been having a crap day. This week is a recovery week but I feel more tired and exhausted than I do in full training. My stomach has been killing me the last few days (IBS acting up), and I've been moody and depressed. To make matters worse, 2 experiments I analyzed today turned out to be crap. That's my word for the day--crap. I'm having one of those days where I'm wondering if I can make it.
