And I thought I was sick of snow



My poor friends in Canada must really be feeling it, if if comes to this

Our snow is melting fast and dirty, and it feels wonderful to have radiant sun! Outdoor season is closing fast, yea! Tac and I went out for a quick reconnect dinner last night, followed by a drive around the local lakes, past boob beach, and other noted landmarks. You can almost hear the ice beginning to melt. In the meantime, Tac continues to train for Wildflower and CDA, and I don't feel much like a triathlete at all. I was telling Tac, I want my 2006 legs back. Maybe I need to have a baby :-) I was telling Tac last night, I still feel every step I take-I have to think of the biomechanics every time I walk because my leg still feels like "other". Then the flu hits and I'm still recovering. Today will be my first workout in over a week. I need to get my mojo back. I miss the honeymoon years of triathlon where everything is an adventure and nothing really hurts. But, you have to train what you've got, so I plan to spin for an hour before work today, and we'll take it from there- November is a long way off-thank goodness!

I'm sorry, did you say "Boob Beach?"

What were we talking about?

The honeymoon period? Does not happen when you start this stuff in your 50s. In fact, I started running in my late 30s and my legs were sore for 3 weeks. I know nothing of this honeymoon of which you speak.

I hope your mojo comes back with the flowers and the green grass and the sunshine

Yeah "boob beach" jumped out at me too..maybe because I don't have any.

Honeymoom years of triathlon....
I don't remember. It was TOO long ago.
Glad you are feeling a bit better...you'll be back in the saddle soon. Patience, patience!

Yep. Spring will be upon you in no time. Everything is starting to bloom here already.

Poor fe-lady, she doesn't have a beach!

Tri-mama, spring is coming and your leg will be renewed.

Quite a pronouncement I realize, but hey, lets see if me sending you some positive mojo helps.

Jumper 2.0 said...

Ok, I really want to know where "boob beach" is. I have never heard of it. But then everybody will be thinking, why does Jumper want to know where "boob beach" is? and is he already on his way over to see it? Isn't he married? Should he even consider being at a place called "boob beach"?

Oh, just never mind, I don't care where it is!

(but where is it?)

You can trick your mojo = act as if it's there already! It will get all confused and sneak sheepishly back before you know it. So will your leg (I had an ankle reconstruction last year, I know what you're saying about 'other').

I have no official interest in boob beach.

Lana said...

Maybe some warmer weather and sunshine will help your knee. It'll be there soon...hang in there.

triguyjt said...

good luck getting that mojo back trimama..and more sunshine and less ice and snow

Steve Stenzel said...

It's warming up! I LOVE that warm spring sun. It means "workout season!"

TriShannon said...

Warm weather will surely help your spirits and your knee! Everything comes back in time.

IronJenny said...

I ran right by boob beach and totally missed it. Seriously. I think the boys just made that up.
;-)
Great seeing you at Dia's! I have missed you!
xoxoxo

I give up and surrender to winter. It wins. Let the spring come.
