Bachelorette Party

July 10, 2008

I am throwing myself a bachelorette party.  Tonight.  And again tomorrow night and probably for 8 nights thereafter.  I returned safely from camp and I have to say, returning to work was a little bit of a let-down after a week of pretending to be a professional triathlete.  It has been a whirlwind since I got home on Sunday afternoon, and GB left town this morning.  That left us with three days to get reaquainted, organize our lives, and finish up some wedding planning.

So GB has left town for a well-deserved vacation and now I’m home alone for ten days with Jack and Finn (and another dog who seems to have temporarily joined our clan – I think she belongs to the neighbor who is away for a few weeks and asked us to dogsit).  And not only has GB left town, but apparently so has my training motivation.  After a week of hard work and solid recovery, I am coming up a little short this week which also happens to be a build week.  I even took today off to see if I could boost my energy a little although I’m not sure it was successful.  I did however, manage a swim this afternoon and will get a bike ride in before dinner, so all is not lost.

I am having bizarre pain in my lower leg/ankle that seems totally unrelated to my IT band issues.  This is bumming me out in a big way now that I am able to run for longer periods of time on my knee.  My ART-ist thinks it is bone related so I am seeing an orthopedic doctor next week and having x-rays just in case.  I am trying not to think about it too much because whatever it is, it clearly won’t go away by worrying about it.  Unfortunately it means that I’m back to pool running until there is more information about what it is.  Bleughh.

On a positive note, the weather has been fantastic lately.  I’m one of those people who loves the heat and generally tolerates humidity well, so this has been a good weather week for me.
