European Double Training Update!

It’s funny to me when people ask the simple question “how are you doing” these days. Now, of course, these people have no idea that I probably just sweat out my body weight on a treadmill. Or rode my bike further than they’ve driven in the past 3 days.  And I know that. But nonetheless, I pause before I answer because my first instinct is similar to Sheldon in this clip (about 30 seconds in):

And quite literally, I spend some of my time these days hibernating with an afghan over my head:

Ha SO DRAMATIC! 🙂 However, unlike Sheldon, I’m not unhappy….I’m just…..tired. And constantly saving all my energy for the next swim, bike or run.

The good news? Training is going well. It certainly has its ups and downs but overall, it has been up. While I’m still scared to do the double, I’m excited for it and I feel more than prepared.

The bad news? I have basically no idea what is going on in the real world right now. My news consists of Bachelor in Paradise (trainer material people!!) and whatever is on Twitter during a few select hours of the day. I have made some discoveries over the last few weeks though – like, most excitingly, that it is IMPOSSIBLE to ever sneak eating the Triple Ginger Snaps from Trader Joes. The container that they are in does not open without a terribly loud noise alerting everyone around that you’re sneaking cookies. Good thing with this much training, “sneaking” ginger snaps is not considered a terrible offense 🙂

Four more days and it’s taper time baby!!

  1. Hah, I hate that question right now too. There’s really not a cool way to be like ‘I’m tired, and your talking is wearing me out, and I have another workout, so be quiet now.’
