Wow, it's been a while and BOY has it been quite the spring and summer! I feel like if it can go wrong, it will! The earth is going crazy, weather is insane! I mean from blizzard snow to 100 degrees in New England for several days. How can we not think we are in purgatory?
I do feel "stuck" though. It's quite ironic, considering I have Ehlers Danlos and the main concern is that I'm VERY quishy and my bones are in a constant state of movement. I'm stuck in my training, I'm stuck in my current plateau, I'm stuck with my current weight, I'm stuck with the speed of my bike, I'm stuck with the hours in the day, I'm stuck with work, I'm stuck with my car, etc. I'm sure I'm not alone in this!
There are parts of me that are NOT STUCK - my ribheads continue to have a mind of their own and that slows me down. That and the dislocated shoulder were two of the things that kept me from doing my Half Ironman this year. The event was very inspiring AND emotional. I went anyway and saw my friends cross the finish line. I wish I was doing it, but life had a different agenda for me!
