Thanks for the Pick-Me-Up
Just wanted to give a shout-out to all my blog friends for your encouragement, support, and flood of compliments. Always makes me feel better on a lousy day. I've been kind of grumpy lately. In a slump. I guess the weekend's workouts took their toll. I've had no energy, no oomph this week. I was hoping to train hard this week and recover next week but it looks like I've taken my recovery week early. I had to. My Tuesday morning bike ride was embarrassing. My toe still hurts so I swapped weights for my run Tuesday pm. Wednesday, I headed out on Pandora after work, excited about my evening ride. As I pedaled down the coast, my legs had no juice, and I felt sluggish. The sluggish feeling felt progressively worse and worse. I gave it the 10-minute rule. After 15, I knew it was time to turn-around and head home, head hung low, tail tucked between my legs. I barely made it up the inside of Torrey Pines. I took the rest of the evening off. I'm taking today off too. I think I will just swim on Friday. I'm trying to recover and get my mojo back before Saturday's race (Camp Pendleton International Triathlon). Gulp.
