Feeling Great

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.
