Holy Tuesday, It's Time for an Update


It's time for an update.

It has been a ridiculous week.  RIDICULOUS.

Work is part.  School is part.  And my body is part. 

Honestly, I think I have more non-functioning parts than functioning parts.  Parts of me are man-made, and other parts just don't work at all.

The funny thing is, I don't think I'd be busting my ass so hard with my workouts, diet, and career plans without them.  Every time my team of doctors would "discover" something new, I'd take a couple days to be pissed off, grumpy, and feel sorry for myself - and then I would shake it off and get even stronger.

Well, now I gots a shiny brand new one to add to the mix!



Before you get all excited . . . .  I have definitely not passed the pissed part.

They threw me on the first medicine I've been on (aside from thryoid hormone) in YEAAAAAARS .
And it promptly sent me this place - which is not unlike the place just about everything I've ever been on has sent me (see The Week in Song Lyrics)

Hello hello
I'm at a place called vertigo
-U2, Vertigo

Awesome.  So half the workouts this week are trashed. 

Not totally a loss though . . .  still got in yoga, a run, a ride, and a bike-openwater swim-bike. And, when all else fails, since I thrive on rest, I . . . well . . . rest.

In other news, you might have remembered how my century made me realize I could push harder on short rides. So, since  I usually always average just under or just at 20, I was hoping that The Murdolator (aka TNT) ride on Thursday would bring me to a new high since it's really a race.

I was wrong.

It brought me to a new low.

They dropped me when the anytime speed hit 26-28 and I busted ass, first alone and then with a small group, just to average 18. I didn't hang on and it was the slowest group ride I've done in ages.

Next week.  (Not tonight . . . I worked 8:30 to 7 today.)

That's 8:30am to 7pm. 

For some reason, this song always reminds me of my vertigo.  Maybe it's because I'm always trying to get my vertigo, to go-go.

Come on baby, let's not fight
We'll go dancing, everything will be all right
Wake me up before you go go
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo yo
-Wham!, Wake Me Up Before You Go Go

Have a good week!
