Up and at 'em

It is 6:15 am on Saturday morning. It is the perfect time to be... well, sleeping. I obviously am not. Really? What the fruit? This morning is the big stair climb race. I don't have to leave until 7:45 or so and so what is the difficulty?

The good news is, I don't feel tired. I went to bed at about 10:30 last night, which is definitely NOT early for me. That is 7 1/2 hours of sleep, about my normal. (And I might add, I need every minute of every hour in order to be a happy, functioning physical therapist/triathlete.)


Let's think about this logically...

Ah ha! The pool has been closed and my foot has been "injured". "Wait, what?", you ask. I swam Monday and Tuesday but not at all since then. I haven't run since Sunday and I have really only been on my trainer once this week. The rest has been yoga and weight training. Yeah, so the aerobic workouts have significantly decreased, more of a nose dive if you will. Actually, I am considering it a taper for the stair climb craziness I am about to embark on here in 3 1/2 hours. Yeah, that's it.

I think I am also excited about the prospects of another "race". Although a little nontraditional for me, I am looking forward to competition of any sort. Haven't had much of that in the last few months.

Woot, woot, bring it on.

Sleeping in on Saturdays is for wimps!

Only slackers sleep in on saturday mornings :-)

Oh wait, if it wasn't for my saturday morning running group, I'd totally be that slacker :-) As it is, I get up at 7:45 to meet the group at 8!

Oh yeah and good luck today! Or rather, since it has passed by now, I hope it went well!

Hope you had a great 'race'. Look forward to reading the race report

Haha same thing here. I got up at 6 yesterday to head to a triathlon clinic, and at 7 this morning... well, just because. :-)

Who said weekends were for sleeping in anyway?
