I swear in the last three days my metabolism has kicked into serious overdrive. Is it part of the taper thing? I don't know, but I suspect it has something to do with it. I've been sweating at night -- I can feel my body ramping up, and this morning after swimming (30 minutes -- WHOA what a workout hahahaha!) I was so freaking hot and hungry. I had to come home right away and eat a second breakfast. First brekkie was a big bowl of oatmeal, hemphearts, cottage cheese and an apple; second brekkie was two eggs on toast plus toast with almond butter.
And that makes me feel satiated -- not even full...
With the majorly reduced training I feel so funny when I need a nap after a 30 minute swim. Hahahahahahahaha!!!
Here is some info for my friends and family who creep and don't comment.....
On June 27 go to www.ironman.com
In the middle of the screen there will be a pink box with the info for the two races occurring that day: Ironman Coeur D'Alene, and Ironman France. Under the Ironman Coeur D'Alene (IMCDA) header will be a link to click....Athlete Tracker (or something along those lines.)
Click on that and it will take you to a page where you can enter my name or bib # to track me. My bib # is 2290.
And there you have it!!
I am retreating into into my pre-Ironman bubble now. I won't be checking emails, etc (except from my coach) -- I am one of those people who really pick up on nervous energy so I switch on hermit-mode.
See ya after IMCDA!!!!
