Today I don't feel like doing anything.
Actually, most of these days I don't feel like doing anything. I'm tired. Like tired, tired. I'm really struggling to train for 3 different types of races so I'm just, well, not.
Okay, that's a little dramatic. I took an unplanned rest day on Friday because I was exhausted and my hip was really bothering me. It has been tight since last weekend...I think the higgledy piggledy muddy trails angered it. Saturday I woke up and the "feels like" temp of 11 degrees had me dreading running 16-18 miles solo. But I bundled up and headed out, only to have my knee and hip screaming at me by a half mile. One mile in I decided that this close to race day it wasn't worth chancing making it worse. So I turned around and headed home. And right into the pool. (okay not RIGHT into the pool, I had to get to the gym)
Y'all, I LOVE the pool. It doesn't love me back as I am a really cruddy swimmer. But even though my butt drags and for the life of me I CANNOT breathe out of my left side, I really enjoy it. However, as relaxing as a nice hour in the pool is, it is NOT 16 miles on foot. Sigh.
Our Sunday ride was canceled because at 24 degrees, no one wanted to saddle up for a windy ride. Quel sads. So I slept in some with plans to pop in a movie and "enjoy" a few hours on the trainer. That has yet to happen today but I HAVE taken a nap, ha!
Not sure why I'm feeling so achey and lazy this weekend. Maybe I'm getting sick? I definitely have a case of the lazies for sure!
*amended to report that I gave myself until 5pm and then put in two quality hours on the trainer, safe from the snow. Yes, SNOW!
