I feel like shit this morning. I think it’s a combo of working out hard, not enough sleep and eating ice cream Saturday night that is now reeking havoc on my stomach. I feel like I could hurl at any moment. I wanted to stay home so badly, but I am in various meetings for 5 hours today and couldn’t miss them. So, here I sit. But the weekend was just beautiful. Perfect weather. We had a little rain Sat morning and that cooled things off. G and I planned to bike in the am, but the rain put us off and I just couldn’t get out of bed, so we slept until 10 and then got up and ran errands. At 1 we met Beth and Tracie at a lake near Beth’s parent’s house and did some swimming. I felt slightly better in the water. But I wish I could just buck up and swim from buoy to buoy, but I just stayed close to shore. After that, we went home and napped a little, ate a little and then got on our bikes around 4 and took a nice hilly 37 mile ride. Afterwards, we ran for 15 mins. Since we biked so late in the day, I was worried about getting up and doing it again. But at 6am on Sunday I rose to head out to Mentor Headlands to meet Jen & Matt. They were kind enough to lead me on the GTC course. We rode one loop, which was about 24 miles. My legs were a little rusty to start, but after about 8 miles I felt just fine and had a really nice ride. We did it in a decent time and I even managed to not be a total wuss on the descents and hit over 30mph at one point. After that ride I ran 30 mins. Then we headed to G’s dad’s house for too much food. I started feeling ill around 7 last night and hope to knock this soon. We are meeting friends tonight to see the Incredible Hulk.
Hope everyone had a nice fathers day:
