I haven't felt physically good or strong since just before this injury happened back in April. Since April I have been on a physical and emotional roller coaster that has finally done me in. I never thought that I'd get to this point, where I have become apathetic and disinterested, but I have. I thought I'd be able to refocus and just work on my swimming and cycling but I haven't been able to do that. I've checked out. Perhaps after I see Dr. Galea on Wednesday, I will have a better idea of where things are at and maybe that will make me feel a bit better, who knows.
Yesterday was the first race of the season in my favourite race series and it was the first time in FIVE years that I haven't toed the line. I went out to support G and my friend David who were both racing. All the big guns were out, including Lionel Sanders (yes, THE Lionel Sanders a.k.a The Green Flash). He was a race ambassador years ago for Multi Sport Canada so once in a while he will come back and do a few sprint races. He is so fast it's insane. He ran a 16 minute 5km OFF THE BIKE. Seriously. And, he's super nice to boot. He hung around afterwards and chatted with people and answered questions. I managed to snap a few shots as he was booking it towards the finish.

In other news, our basement is finished (and it looks AWESOME), which means that we're ready to list our house. G is pushing to have that happen sooner rather than later. The goal would be go have it listed just before we go to Tremblant so our agent can show it while we're gone and we don't have to worry about keeping everything in it's place or having to stay out after work because there's an open house. That's kinda stressing me out because these next two weeks are going to be STUPID busy at work. But, G works from home when he's not traveling so he said he could tidy things up and pack up all the little odds and ends that need to be put away.

We also found a place that we quite liked. I didn't totally LOVE it (mostly because of cosmetic things like floor colour, counter top colours) but it ticks a lot of the boxes we're looking for. The bedrooms are big, there's good closet space, it's got a huge tub in the master bathroom and it's got a 2 car garage. We're going to take another look at it tomorrow night and if we still like it, then we'll put in an offer on it. AHHHHH!
Despite my low workout mojo, I did manage to do a few workouts this week. So, I'm going to link up Holly and Tricia for their weekly wrap. And in July I'm hoping that I will be able to start posting a bit more regularly on here. I have so many partially written blog posts it's ridiculous.
Anyway, here goes:
Tuesday: 21.5km ride in the morning. Never a bad way to start the day.
Wednesday: Slept in
Thursday: Went to work early
Friday: 1500m swim
Saturday: Spectator and Cheerleader duties
Sunday: 43km windy as heck ride!
Total time: just under 3 hours. Yup. Hopefully this week will be better.
How was your week? Head on over the the link up to check out what the rest of the Weekly Wrap crew got up to!
