We're actually starting to have some weather that resembles spring, and I've gone and gotten myself a bout of food poisoning during a mad crazy work week. So instead of taking my bike out when I got home last night, I went tp bed and slept for 12 hours. And I've lost 2 lb already, so it'll be awhile before I will have enough calories in reserve for a decent workout.

Sorry for whining. Believe it or not, there have been times in my life where training has just sailed along, obstacle free and I've been happy, upbeat and positive!

But although I don't want always to be negative on the blog, I do want to be honest- I'm not superwoman (obviously) and if someone less experienced than me (ha- yeah right!)is reading this, I want to show my training for what it is; silly struggles and all, instead of a journey that's all awesome runs, kickass hill climbs and sailing from training PR to training PR.

Update: fortunately, it was just a 12-hour thing and I'm much better now. I was pretty screwed yesterday, but today was fine and I am finally through the work month of hell! Tomorrow I am commuting on my bike for the first time and then spending the first part of the day on the summer clerk retreat. Yay!

You are not superwoman? *shock* It's nice when people attempt to bring balance into their lives and especially nice when they are honest about it on their blogs. I try to paint reality too! Get well soon!

Definitely take some time to relax and be proud of yourself after your big race. You didn't do as badly as you think! In fact, you probably rocked.

Glad to hear that it was just a quick bug. I can't remember the last time I slept for 12 hours. That would be super sweet, well without the food poisoning part. :)
