Unscheduled day off..

Well, I was suppose to swim in Cochiti Lake this morning to get ready for Lake CDA, which is still bouncing from 50-53 degrees. I thought once a lake started warming up, it kept going up but noooo, apparently not in Coeur d'Alene. Cochiti today has this forecast:

so our little group decided this would NOT be a good idea (I draw the line at lightning and thundershowers) and will re-attempt tomorrow AM.

Therefore, I am staying in my jammies all day today! It has been probably months since I have done this but this is the only time/day I will be able to do this for awhile. OMG the lists are endless for home projects:

1. Balance the checkbook-do we have any money in the account?
2. Start packing for IMCDA-that will make it real.
3. Catch up on Oprah-thank goodness for the greatest invention ever-TIVO!
4. Well, maybe I will have to venture to Costco. we are pretty much out of everything. My wonderful hubby does all the shopping and cooking thank goodness because we would starve if he didn't right now.
5. Pay bills. The electricity went out the other night and I thought maybe I had forgotten to pay the electric bill until I saw the whole neighborhood was out too.
6. Stretch! My whole body feels like I went through a meat grinder. What happened to the 30 something year old body I was feeling a couple of weeks ago? Apparently she aged overnight!
7. Did I mention the laundry-e..n..d..l..e..s..s..!!

I have been pretty grumpy. Well to be honest irritable is not even close. More like irrational bitch! Today I seem to have a better attitude..

I went biking yesterday and felt like sh%$&t! I couldn't even keep up with the slow group. And I am going to do an Ironman? I cut my ride down by 45 minutes. Legs heavy, tired, did I mention grumpy?

H stayed with me-he is my hero.. for better or worse..

Sounds like you need a little rest so hooray for jammie day!

Oprah is on my sh*t list right now for doing that stupid, destructive cleanse diet. Shame on her!

Sometimes a day off is what the body needs--it is probably for the best that you will be staying in your jammies all day ;).

I couldn't have written this same post.

Our moderate ride SUCKED. My Avg Hr was 17 beats BELOW my lowest number in zone 2.... Didn't want to move...

AND, I took today off as well - supposed to do the speed bike, but we are riding long tomorrow and well.. I'm STILL in my PJs ;-)

I had a jammie day, too. TOmorrow we'll swim, and then you can kick my ass in the water and feel fast again. No need to help me, it's what I'm here for.

Don't you just love our guys?
Hubby is so a agreeable to whatever path I choose to take...
makes NOT racing in two weeks even tolerable as we know we will still have a great time cheering you and all the others on! (We always have fun together...sounds as if you and H do too!)

P.S. it's okay to be grumpy...I said so! :-)

You keep saying 'grumpy' as though it was a bad thing...?

I was just thinking today what a pain in the butt it is to always have to be training! The housework doesn't get done, the car doesn't get maintenanced on time (so now no air conditioning when it is 93 and 85% humidity), and thank God I don't have to do the yard work!
