Goodbye June

Mindy and I had a great weekend. We ran on the buckeye trail, did some shopping, drank some beers at the Barking Spider, had brunch at Lucky’s cafĂ©, what more can you ask for. I miss her already. But back to reality and back to getting my butt in gear. These past 2 weeks have been horrible on the training front. So, I started my day off with a swim. It actually went pretty well. I managed to do 1600 yards in about 40 mins. Not super fast, but I haven’t been consistent at all. My goal for July is to swim at least 2 times a week, but preferably 3. I am never going to be successful at this tri thing unless I become more confident in the water. Wed. I plan to go to the Shaker’s master’s swim. I’m a little nervous, I haven’t swam over a mile since early May. That’s a long time. Tonight I am meeting a friend for coffee and plan on doing a few miles on the bike. I can’t even blog about how little I have been on the bike that last 2 weeks!

Tonight we have someone coming by to measure out basement for carpet. It’s a big step in getting our house ready. By ordering the carpet we will be forced to get the drywall fixed on paint. Then once the carpet is done, we’re going to move a bunch of junk down there and paint some of the rooms upstairs.

My stomach woes have been really bad the past 2-3 weeks and I had another really bad night last night after eating some birthday cake & ice cream. I am such a reluctant lactose avoider. I know it makes me sick, yet I love chips and dip and ice cream, etc. But I vow that starting today I’m done, dairy is out, all of it. I am sick of being sick. I am not 100% confident that lactose is my only food issue, I suspect I may have some sort of sugar intolerance. But for now, cutting dairy out, every little bit of it and if I am still having issues at the end of July, it’s time to go see someone who specializes in stomach issues. I suspect if I clean up my diet and cut pretty much everything fun out, I’ll be fine.

I battle the "swimming demons" too. I used to literally get nauseous when I pulled into swim class because I was so slow. However, lo and behold, the consistency is paying off. I'll never be Michael Phelps, but I'm no longer afraid of every swim! You can do it sista!!!
