Good news! I woke up this morning and did not feel like I'd been hit by a bus! YAY for small favors, ya know?
It's funny. Because only at the end of a massive Ironman build would you say that what I did this weekend qualifies as 'short'... though clearly my body interpreted it as 'short' at least in relative terms, because I woke up this morning (before my alarm went off) and had a desire to get out of bed and go swim.
And in the water, I felt good. Which hasn't happened on a Monday morning in, um, a long time. I was on top of the water with a long relaxed stroke and a strong pull-through. I love that.
Now Moana is napping and I'm not A)Training more or B)Passed out on my bed. Nope. Laundry is being done. Kitchen is clean. Floor has been swept. And bills will get paid before she wakes up! Later we'll actually go out and run some errands (Costco- here we come!) which clearly indicates that my energy levels have come back up to a more normal level. I did not have the ability to drag my poor tired body to Costco last week. But today, it seems like a manageable task.
Shoot, if I have this much energy today, what am I going to feel like next Monday after a weekend that is not even half of what I did this past weekend? Holy Moly. Watch out. Mama's gonna be BOUNCING OFF THE WALLS.
Anyway, it's good to have normal energy levels because it allows me to get through mornings with this energetic little one.Seriously, blow this one up and look at her face. And welcome to my world.
