After missing the last three weeks of training, I managed to use the Calgary 70.3 as a great training day race -- and a kick start to training again! YAY!!! It's crunch time now, and I am so thrilled to be able ratchet up the training again.
Not too much else going on, so I thought I'd list some random thoughts...
Does anyone else smell the overpowering smell of earthworm when it rains? I had a 2.5 hour ride yesterday out in the pouring rain, and the surrounding air was scented with a tangible wormy smell. NICE. :) :)
The swim start at a triathlon DOES NOT HAVE TO BE SO ROUGH! Again, another female wave start showed me just how kind and friendly female swimmers are. One gal accidentally grabbed my shoulder...instead of pushing me down, she immediately let go and said, "Sorry!" The next breath I took, I responded with a "No problem!" Compare this to three stories I heard from my male friends -- ugly kicking, harsh, and thrashing. People need to respect themselves, respect their competitors, and respect their sport.
Coffee tastes really good the day after a race.
I can eat 24 ice cream bars in two days.
Did anyone peruse through the Calgary 70.3 glossy pamphlet and read the pro profiles? Did anyone else catch that one girl that told her story of how she tried to avoid a Momma duck and baby ducklings crossing the road in a race once, but ran over one when a duckie turned around. WTF??? OF ALL THE THINGS TO TALK ABOUT WHY IN GOD'S NAME PICK THAT?????
The poop fairy only half-visited me on the morning of the race. Hence, my poop-belly race pictures which I will NOT be ordering. LOL!!!
Maybe if I hadn't eaten 24 ice cream bars, the poop fairy would have finished her job...
That's all for now! :) :)
