Feeling my age..and day dreaming..
I finally got tired yesterday. Hartley and i did a 30 mile bike ride on the Bosque Trail-nothing hard but my legs felt like someone had poured cement in them. Afterwards a 1900 meter swim-again felt tired. Oh and weighed myself and gained 2 lbs since before BSLT. That is depressing! My body doesn't feel recovered which scares me a little after the reviews i am reading about Farmington (very difficult, hilly, etc). I guess i wasn't thinking this was going to be a hard course for some odd reason..Oh well, I'll do how I do after the big race last weekend. I will think of it as a "long training day" . Yea right-that never works for me! Once I get around you other athletes, I get revved up and push myself anyways..I have allergies and they are bad the last couple of days. NOW what the heck is blooming? Seems like allergies are always here in ABQ. My dream is to find a place where no pollen exists, still has the perfect weather we have here and is preferably near an ocean, but not expensive. Oh, and while I am dreaming, i would like to be not farther than 200 miles away from any of my children and grandchildren. No crime and with mountains like the Sandias I am looking at outside my window right now..Does such a land exist?
