Whewww I just realized that was a long blogging absence for me. This is where I’ve been . . .
My GCM always gets excited when he sees me packing my bikini for the pool—not in anticipation of seeing me in my bikini, sadly . . . No, he gets excited because a bikini means an easy swim workout.
Anyways, bikini swims aren’t so fun when they are forced because you aren’t allowed to do much more than that. That was my last week—no fun. Coach probably saved me from going completely off the dreaded cliff by forcing a detox that involved doing a whole lot of not much.
On the positive side, it meant bringing one of my fave training partners out of tri retirement for a short bikini swim. And I can report that I now seem to be able to function again on less than 12 hours sleep/ night and I’ve stopped eating non-stop. My appetite was so out of control that I honestly got sick of eating—how is that possible?!
Tomorrow I will see if that bikini-swimming break brought the cycling power back to my legs as well . . . Stay tuned because I realized that it is February and I haven’t done my annual contest yet, so this needs to happen ASAP!
