I’m out of the fog I’ve been living in for the past 5 months! And I can’t believe how great I feel. I feel as if I am officially done with Adrenal Fatigue and have entered back into the realm of Triathlete!!!!
And today was a perfect example of that. After a restful night of solid sleep I was up at 4:30 and headed to the gym for my swim workout. I got there around 5:15 and shared the pool with two other triathletes. Our printed out workouts wet and stuck to the side of the pool and all our gadgets for pulling, kicking, drilling were sitting on the edge just waiting to be used. There is something about that early morning that only us triathletes truly appreciate.
After 40 minutes of swimming, drilling and more swimming I headed home and then to work. And this is were the cool part comes in…..At lunch time I headed out for a 40 minute run!
Yeap, I swam this morning and then did a lunch time run. The crazy thing is it’s almost 70 degrees in Denver today so it was fabulous to be outside. My office is a few blocks from City Park and boy were the runners out today.
I haven’t run outside in awhile…It’s been mostly really short treadmill runs. So today, being outside reminded my of the many many miles I have covered in the last few years. It also reminded me that I AM a triathlete and will be competing again this coming year. I am back on the training routine and boy does it feel great!
I am excited to start blogging again too. I feel that as the end of this year draws near I am forward focused on what awaits me in 2011. I feel as if I have some life in me again and have something to contribute besides the fog and dusk I have been living in.
Here’s to today being my first day back to joining the ranks of my fellow triathletes!!!!!
