Welcome back to reality....

Well, after three days slugging abed after the wisdom teeth came out (there's a reason why typically do this when you're 18 - NOT 33.....) I have reemerged. I totally blew off the tri on Saturday... yeah.... i'm a slacker.... I finally got out on my bike this morning. And wouldn't you know I got exactly two miles from home and it started to pour. The sun was still shining and it was absolutely pouring. Those skinny tires get really hard to stay on top of when the roads are slick and wet.

But I made it home without incident. Fortunately. It was slow going, and really uncomfortable, but I made it home. Wouldn't you know it stopped raining as soon as I got home? But the roads were really to wet to continue my ride. So instead, I made apple cinnamon spelt pancakes. Yummy! I was hoping for some to freeze, but alas the heathen hordes (DH, DS1 (7) and DS2 (5)) attacked. They ate 40 pancakes. Yup. I said 40. It was impressive.

Right now, I'm finishing my menu planning for the week, and thinking about everything I have to do tomorrow. YAAAAK!

Reality Bites.... At least with wisdom teeth....

Monday morning: 8:30. I should be working, instead i'm blogging..... go figure. it's my life. I'll stay up until 11 tonite working instead.

I have a bike fitting today at 3, an appointment with my PT at 4:30, and then 've got to try to get some cardio in before dinner... not sure how that's going to work, but I'll manage somehow. Tomorrow I get to have a wisdom tooth pulled. I'm 33 years old. I've always been a late bloomer, and then this weekend, the TRI on Saturday and Marathon Training Officially Starts!!!

That means I'm only 18 weeks out from the Marine Corp Marathon in October. WTF was I thinking???
