"I am not dead. I don't want to go in the cart"
Title in reference to Jane's Monty Python post. I love the "Bring out your Dead" sketch.
I promised myself that I wouldn't post until I had something positive to say, I am sick to death of hearing myself snivel, but I also promised myself I would post my weekly updates for what I am calling the 'Anyone Can' IM training
(Lame, I know, but it sounds better than "Holy shit! It is really 140.6 miles?!" IM training.)
I have been sick all week. Apparently standing around in the freezing rain, covered in wet clothes and an ill fitting mylar blanket, for over an hour, after running a marathon in the same freezing rain is not good for you. Would it kill my mother to be wrong once in a while?
Obviously, training was nonexistent , but I think the week off was good for me. I am still swimming in a sea of phlegm (awww, the poet in me comes out) but I am ready to get back at it.
Next up is the Solvang Century on Saturday. It will be my first 100 mile ride. LA Run Buddy and I will be doing it together, so no matter what happens it is guaranteed to be a good time!
