Is the new layout sweet or what? I am in awe of Mallie's work. Is she fast and creative or what?
So I thought I'd take you through a day in the life of a girl 6 days post Ironman.
Decide today is the day to go on a bike ride, although you can't walk yet.
Change the cassette from the race wheels to your training wheels. It can't be that hard, can it?
Spend 10 minutes washing hands to get the grease off
Realize that you haven't put the damn wheel back on the bike
Spend 10 more minutes washing hands to get grease off
Start riding. Be amazed that you can bike without pain, but you can't take a single step on land
enjoy the beautiful scenery and lovely day in southeast Wisconsin with no Garmin, no HRM, and no watch. Think this must have been 3 hours
get back 90 minutes later and eat Indian food
Feel pretty damn proud of yourself for that killer ride
Strut around the house... well if you can consider a walk that fails to bend one leg a strut
2 hours later wonder how on earth a person could be this tired in the middle of the day. Did you not sleep last night???
Do a flying swan dive onto the bed. Sleep like the dead for an hour
Wonder how many days are going to be like this.
Oh, one more thing. I realize that some of you may have no idea why I named my bike Mike Honcho. Here's a clip for you. You will most likely finish and still wonder why the heck I named my bike Mike Honcho. But the bike enthusiasts will get it :-)
