back to it.. sort of

It is November 1st.

Today, is the first day of tri-season training.

Unfortunately, today is a day where I also feel like ass.

I have not been sleeping well for the past week. Last night, as I was falling asleep on my couch at 6:45 pm, I decided to surrender, take 2 Ibuprofen PMs, and crawl into bed before 8 pm.

I crawled OUT of bed at 5:45 am to get ready for work. That is nearly 10 hours of sleep.

I still feel absolutely horrendous. I don't know if I am getting sick or what. I am exhausted, I have a headache, my stomach is queasy, and I just feel.. off.

Unfortunately, even after I escape from leave work, I still have to go to a chiropractor appointment, Wegmans, and do an hour ride on my bike before I can crawl onto my couch and snuggle under a pile of blankets.

It looks like it's going to be the type of week where I pound orange juice with extra calcium and vitamins, and spend all of my spare time sleeping. I guess it's that time of year.. I hate getting sick. I hate the cold. I hate winter. I hate that I still need to take the AC unit out of my bedroom window, and that soon I will be forced to turn on my heat. I hate putting the flip flops away for the next 6 months. I will be cold from now until June.

In an attempt to "think ahead" to a time that is warmer..

I am currently looking into a half IM for May. Two that are on the radar are the Kinetic half in Virginia, and the Little Smokies half in Ohio. Unfortunately, I WAS looking for something that was within driving distance and that would take 0 vacation days for me to do. I'm not sure if that exists in May.. but both of these are driveable with perhaps 1 vacation day needed. It's a long way off so I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet. More research needs to be done!

P.S. I watched an episode of Glee yesterday where they sang "Defying Gravity" from Wicked and my heart almost melted because I love Wicked! I also love Glee more and more every episode. :)


  1. I'm back on the training schedule today too. I think you will kick the cold as soon as you start training again. I always feel so much healthier and like my immune system is better when I'm training!

  2. I am from Ohio and the Little Smokies is that exact course as the American TTT (which will be going on at the exact time), train for hills, hills, and more hills on the bike and run

  3. I hope you feel better soon, from now through Jan when it is only light for like, 2 hours, and it is COLD, is just tough!

  4. Hope you feel better soon!!! It sucks when you don't feel well when you are training! I am a stickler for that airborne stuff...I use it like candy!

  5. Glee is on my list to Netflix for those long winter trainer rides... I've been hearing lots of good things about it!

    Hope you feel better soon!

  6. I hope you feel better soon! I've been in a tired funk too lately!
