This past month of medicine wards really wore me out. To end that month of craziness I spent a very non-relaxing weekend moving across town. So by yesterday I was a mess. I had forced myself to get up at 4:45am on Monday and Wednesday for swimming and had a very tough hilly group ride on Tuesday. This was after being bent over in pain all day Tuesday from what I can only imagine is my stomach ulcer returning to rear its ugly head (I hate you, ulcer!).
With the way I've been feeling I'm a bit worried that the damn thing is bleeding again. I just feel so drained and my workouts are completely flat. Ugh
So yesterday at swimming I was an ugly monster. Tired, pissy, slow. It was truly a pathetic workout on my end. So after my evening run I went directly to bed. I was dead to the world at 8:30pm. And the next 9 hours were GLORIOUS! I feel like a new woman. It's a good thing too because I need to hit the training HARD. I will be training through Musselman and building until the end of the month. I can give a little warning that the race next weekend is going to be rough! I don't expect PRs (I feel like a slug running at the moment), but I guarantee to give it all I have. I'm sure watching the ITU Pan American cup on Saturday will give me some extra motivation to go fast! Those athletes are amazing!
