My plan was to sleep in....who knows how late. Maybe something as luxurious as 7am! I was so excited going to bed knowing that when I woke naturally at 5/5:30 I could roll over, snuggle back under the blankets and go back to sleep.
So when my eyes popped open at 4:30.... and I was wide awake stressing about my business taxes, I took a deep breath and nestled back into bed. By 5 I was so awake I could hardly close my eyes. Every time I turned over Zen jumped on his feet and was ready to go. So I finally got up and came down stairs for my usual ritual. Coffee, check email, walk Zen. I pondered going to swim but stuck to my DO.
I got my taxes done and QBfile sent to my accountant by 8am. Caught up on some work tasks that I had been putting off and had a very productive day. It felt good!
So that was that and back to the grind....Swim/Run is the focus this week and well I am swimming and running every day. Arms are tired, shoulders are sore, ITB needs attention but I am feeling good. A good tired, not a I'm on the edge of injury or sickness tired, not a I cannot do this any more tired, a good Ironman training tired!!!
