Liked it so much last week I'm going to keep it up!
1. Ribs that move? Huh...who knew...seems I have one and it’s not been very happy with me lately. I was having some issues last week and had been to the chiropractor on Thursday and all seemed well by throughout the century. Come Tuesday morning when I go to do my hair...POP! Pain! Can’t breathe deep...great....just great.... To the chiropractor both Tuesday and Wednesday. I’m skipping today, it’s better, I think the pain I have now is more from them beating me up to get things moved around. Will see how it feels tomorrow and maybe hit them up again. Still planning on the race Sunday but will play it by ear. Have not done any training since ride on Sunday. That 70.3 isn’t getting an farther away...so no training is not real good.
2. Newsflash...riding 100 miles does not mean you can eat whatever you want....Scale up 5 pounds after an overly indulgent weekend and no training this week!!!
3. Heat it’s arrived in Denver. The Boulder courses are notoriously brutal in the heat, which there usually is in July and August (oly and HIM) and since I like any other sane person prefer to train when it’s cool, I’m going to have to acclimate to that. Anyone have any good tips for dealing with the heat. Often times in the heat my fingers swell when I run, I think this is an electrolyte/salt thing. Any and all advice welcome!
Happy racing to all this weekend!
