OK so it WAS a cold. Thankfully it only lasted about 2 days total and I felt well enough to tackle my Thursday-Sunday workouts without a problem. Another workout week in the books!
I’m living, breathing, eating and sleeping hockey right now. It’s on every night in our house until I finally fall asleep to hockey (because Jeff is still watching and I have to get up at asscrack-thirty to train).
Even the dogs crowd onto the couch to watch hockey. Or perhaps more accurately Max luxuriates in a neck rub while Stan mopes over losing his spot next to Jeff.
Easter is a great day to be a heathen. I ran the dogs on the high school field, went for a long run, faced no crowds at the grocery store, colored my grey away and pretty much sat on my ass watching hockey for the rest of the day without a care in the world.
The upside of having a cold this week was it killed my appetite. I ate because I knew I HAD to but not because of the triathlete tapeworm. It’s making my first attempt this year at pre-race leaning-out a little easier. Well, that and the fact that I am not allowing myself to buy any more Senior Mo’ Mints (basically dark chocolate-covered peppermint cremes from Whole Foods) until after the race – I haven’t opened my only container for fear of not having any when I REALLY need a dose of chocolate.
One more solid week of work to get through – with some interesting training challenges – and then it’s race week. I can’t wait to FINALLY do a triathlon this year – hopefully they are chemical-treating the heck out of Tempe Town Lake right now to ensure there are no more cancelled races this spring!
Have a good week!
