Random dream and thoughts..

-I had a dream that I got lost at the Danskin Tri and still got first place. It was in the snow (Iknow-it is a dream you know). They did not have splits but I definitely won the swim.

-There are 27 women in my AG at Vineman. Not that I am really training or anything. The only training I have done since IMCDA is an hour run and my legs are sore..uh-oh..

-I'm heading out to the lake this AM to swim with H and the tri couple down the street. They rented a kayak so what the heck? I only have to bring my wetsuit, cap and goggles this time. What a treat with no extra warmth layers!

-This cough is getting downright annoying and I am running out of cough medicine (the good kind for night). Damn!

-My back lawn is dying for no particular reason. What a major pain in the butt!

-I feel grumpy!
Addendum: I went for a 1.2 mile OW swim this AM and did it in 40 min. Amazing how without all the extraneous sh%^$&*t how fast I can be! Oh and the water-like a bath of 68 degrees. Ohmmmmmm........

i was having insane dreams before IMCDA! in one i forgot all my nutrition so decided to wing it with what they gave me. in another the swim start was in a tsunami. too funny.

hope you start feeling better soon! i woke up with a sore throat and sniffles, i'm praying it doesn't turn into something.

doing vineman how many days after IMCDA?? you rock!!

I'm one of those 27 and I assert that doing a full IM counts as training. You'll be over the fatigue in another week and then you do a regular taper week and boom! Fast city!

I always enjoy hearing about your entertaining dreams. Danskin in the snow...too funny!

You will be fine at Vineman. You're in awesome shape :)

I'm sorry that cough is still hanging around!! No wonder you feel a bit grumpy. I'm sure the strength you got from IMCDA (and all the training leading up to it) will hold you in good stead for Vineman. Just get healthy!

I think IMCDA has something to do with dying lawns. That happened to us in 2006 when we went out there. The lawn took a total downturn and completely died off for no apparent reason. Good swim time! I don't seem to be able to get any faster for that distance (about 48 min.). I need to!
