I blame the boobs (more drag, you know).
Coach Karen blames me. She pointed out that many of those now-speedy TriGirls had been showing up for master's quite often--a few even took semi-private lessons with her once a week as well--and had improved quite significantly. I on the other hand, really hadn't been in the water on a regular basis since, oh, September which means I haven't been improving. In March the TriGirls get back in the pool with coach Som (finisher of over 20 ironman races) or coach Annie two nights a week, in addition to the master's class. I think I better teach my husband to cook since it looks like I won't be around at dinner time. I'll be trying to earn back a slot in the Lane o' Dread.

I did meet my new TriGirl little sister, who was a real trooper on Saturday and spun with us for a good hour and a half, and then ran about 4 miles. Way to go, Kristen! I'm hoping I can help her develop her running (increasing endurance/distance) if she can reciprocate by getting me to those Thurs morning sessions.

We ate very well, stayed at a great (and over the top) hotel, and walked walked and walked some more. That should make up for those 5oz of foie gras I ate at Bouchon. All in all, a very memorable, extended disco-mix birthday extravaganza! Now it's time to get back to work. I did make it back to swimming tonight, and while I'm no more bouyant than I was several weeks ago (contrary to popular opinion), it was nice to share a lane with my TriGirl friends and feel healthy again. On Saturday it's back to spinning and running. Ack!

Thank you all!
I was cleared to go back to spinning this week, and so had to this morning drag myself out of bed at 6:15 to get back on the workout wagon. It was painful at first to get into the groove, but at the end of the class, I was so glad I'd gone. Three weeks with no endorphins had made me a grumpy bear.
I guess turning 40 ain't so bad after all....
