My week officially ends Sunday at midnight. And it’s been pretty good so far.
Today consisted of a race, bright and early at 5:30 to drive to White Rock Lake, and Race at 7:30. This is the first week in my life that I haven’t slept passed 7:30 at all. And it’s also the first time in life, not getting a day to sleep in really hasn’t bothered me. Maybe there is hope for me after all.
So, since you are all dying to know I’m sure, the race went well. I was dead tired because I had one of the hardest, most consistent, weeks of training to date, and being able to race that well is a good sign for me. I’m finally doing things right.
On the way home, My grandmother talked me into stopping at central market, to get some groceries from a list she and my Uncle have been working on. Armstrong once said in response to why he weighs his food, “Garbage in equals garbage out.” Tri Training without regard to what you eat is like trying to race a car without regard to what you putting in the gas tank. That’s right! We went organic: and did we ever: organic oatmeal, organic milk, organic cereal, organic peanut butter, whole grain bread, vegetable chips (yeah…I was surprised too), organic honey and maple syrup, and on and on and on. It is really good stuff too. And I’ve got a whole medicine cabinet of vitamins supplements I am supposed to take twice daily and some really potent green tea (not the baggies, the real dried leafs, you scoop them up out of these air sealed containers and put them in zip locks).
Funny thing: I was driving home with a sack fill of vitamins pills (yeah I’m going to me a pill poppin’ fool), and that green tea, well it didn’t look like green tea, if I’d got pulled over, I couldn’t imagine trying to explain that to the Police.
So I’m dead tired, and I’m off to do a little grubbing, then some homework, then wake up to a real hard Monday morning and do it again.
Keep it real.
