Well despite my best efforts, my water-treading act ended up being an epic fail. I should have learned by now that in this sport, unless your name is Super Woman, burning the candle at both ends inevitably results in one thing: you lying in bed, sick.
That’s where I am today. The GCM and I got up this morning to pack the car for swim practice and within five minutes of getting out of bed I was back on the couch in the fetal position. Maiki looked at me like, “You have got to be kidding me that you are going to try to train this morning.” Of course I still had to check with Coach just to be sure . . . Long story short, I’ve been stuck in bed since with chills, aches, fever, hardly able to keep my eyes open. And I’ve had to live vicariously through the GCM’s stories of today’s smashfests.
The timing couldn’t be worse as the GCM and I have both really been struggling for the past while and just yesterday hit the RESET button in a big way. Today was to be the first day of the rest of our careers. And I’m in bed. So far, so good . . .
I must say though that I learned another great benefit of our furry friends today: Missy Moo had no problem lying an extra 7 hours in bed with Mom! Fingers crossed that I can kick this and be back at it tomorrow!
