I never thought Ironman training could feel this good. Now that my health is on track my body and mind is responding very well. I got my iron stores up, my hormones are in check, and my nutrient levels are all on track. I might have an under active thyroid but we are keeping a close eye on that little bugger.
The problem I have is that now that I feel all hunky dory all I want to do is have fun. I would like to go and party my ass off. I would like to take off and stay over at Foxwoods for an entire weekend to stay up late and gamble and yes, drink. I love having fun. I'm a party girl at heart. As a matter of fact - I have always believed deep down that one of the reasons I participate in endurance sport is to keep myself out of trouble. To keep myself on the straight and narrow pathway of life. Boring!!!! But it does work for me.
So - I will not indulge. At least not to that extent. I will have my 2 beers or 2 glasses or wine on the weekend. Maybe a Cosmo every now and then but that's all. After the big event I'll have a humongous party with my buddies to celebrate our accomplishment. That's good enough for me.
