It's Tuesday Morning. I have four days to work before I get another day off. I am starting tired. It is probably not actually that I am tired. It is that I hurt. My body hurts. I knew I scraped and bruised my left leg, hip, arm, and elbow. I didn't know until later last night that my back is really hurting and that my left pinky is bruised and hurts. Oh well.
Someone suggested to me yesterday that I have a lot of accidents. Well, I agree. But I will quickly add that most 57 year old women are not training for a triathlon and a half-marathon at the same time. I am more likely to get injured while out riding my bicycle than I am while sitting on my sofa. But I am less likely to get heart disease or major depression if I am out on my bicycle or swimming or running. So, my cost/benefit analysis? I think the benefits far outweigh the risk.
I called my sponsee who borrowed my mountain bike and told her I would like to swap it out for my road bike. I am not riding that skinny tire thing anymore. I will take my mountain bike to the triathlon - which I have never done before. Plenty of other people do, and I will too!
I am happy to be gainfully employed today. I am happy to be heading off to work. I am happy that I have nothing to do tonight and can just come home and chill out and go to bed early.
