Knee Deep

I'm knee deep in the Post-Ironman Non-working-out Blues these days. It's a self-imposed moratorium on working out - and it was necessary! In case you are wondering, I still, to this day, have yet to break a sweat in a fun, workout-type activity, since CdA. That's a long time between workouts.

Tomorrow, Monday, begins my 18 week Marathon Training Plan. It couldn't come too soon. Of course, looking at the plan, Mondays are cross training days. So I guess I'm swimming tomorrow, which I also miss. I guess, if I plan on biking any time soon, I'd better take it out of the shipping box and put it back together. Is that bad karma? I'm sure my bike needed a break too.

I'm working on a montage using a slew of pictures from CdA using Microsoft Movie Maker. It worked fine to a point...now I have so many pictures in it, I think, that it locks up if I try to add any more. Friggin Gates....

Oh, and the TB&B Podcast...um...sorry folks - Tacboy and I talk about calling each other - the conversations go something like this:

Taconite: We really need to finish up this episode....
Bigun: Yea, when do you want to do it?
Taconite: Any night this week is good for me...oh wait, I've got a thing on Wednesday and Thursday, so I guess Tuesday, or maybe over the weekend.
Bigun: Na, Tuesday's no good for me, I've got a really long day that day. Maybe Sunday then...
TriSherpaDi in the background: Don't forget about going over to Dawns Sunday night for Mexican....
Bigun: Oh crap, that's right - dude, we need to get this done.....

And it plays like that week, after week, after week. Please! Don't hate us!

The bike is still in the box? You HAVE been taking some downtime.

Don't let Al tease you! Hmmmm, I am starting marathon training on Monday also - I think it is going to be a bit of a relief after all this triathlon stuff...

Tea said...

Mr. Tea is training for a marathon also.

Glad you're enjoying your time off.

Kevin said...

Enjoy your time off! We are all patiently awaiting your next podcast.

We could never hate you - we love yoU! Good luck on the new training schedule!

You certainly deserved some time off. Good luck with the marathon training. I might do the Space Coast 1/2 and see you there.

Is the bike still in the box all covered in sweat, gatorade and gels? If so poor bike, it probably just wants a good clean. :-)

Only your dirty bike. I wonder if the ants have found the gels and leftover gatorade yet...
