Life after Ironman...
Involved a lot of sitting around and eating rocky road ice cream! Don't you worry though, I have a feeling coach is going to put me back to work shortly! I went to two spin classes this past week.
Tuesday's class went a little something like this: During meter break..an hour into class..
Me: Kara, I am feeling a little light headed.
Kara: I am going to throw up!
And our friend Caesar, he's legs never bothered to show up but Ted looked really happy and fine! Go figure!
Thursday's class...at the hour mark..Caesar and Ted both showed up but I felt like I was going to throw up! Ouch! And then coach said, "Yi! Look alive..you can update about class on facebook later!" Every one laughs...awesome! I stuck around after class to chat before saying, "Ok..have to go to work now.. have a facebook status to update :-). Next thing you know, I am creating a facebook page for sailfish wetsuits- USA which coach is a partner of. Funny how things work but fun stuff!!
With all this free time, I've been watching a lot of Tour de France coverage. Yes, I even enjoy the repeat coverage, ALL DAY LONG! I've checked off cleaning as it's been on my list of things to do..for the last 6 months or so! My training clothes, my t-shirt closet, sweaters, jeans, and tops! While sorting through my denim, I found two that I would like to highlight:
Levi vintage jeans that I bought at a secret employee sample sale 6 years ago. It took me 6 years to finally fit into them!!! Put them on this morning, no hopping squats needed! Sweet!
And these Rock and Republic below..what was I thinking and why did I think these were a good idea? Crystal pockets? Uh...yea...
Check out the facebook page for sailfish wetsuits here!! I made the switch earlier this year from my Orca 3.8 to the sailfish attack- turned out to be a very good move as I felt more mobility in the water as far as shoulder flexibility is concerned and I was able to breath easier (very important when you need to stay calm in the midst of chaos). The high quality rubber is easy to put on and off not to mention the sailfish logo right above your backside makes any behind look particularly awesome! Not that triathletes care about vanity or anything like that :-). On a serious note, definitely worth checking out!
So feeling quite rested has me tempted to sign up for Ironman Austin 70.3 in October... thinking... thinking... thinking...
