I haven't posted because I haven't been working out enough. Let's make this brief, because the Benadryl is kicking in.

On wednesday I biked 40 miles out of sheer boredom. It was on the recumbent bike, but I suppose it still counts. I'm not going to say it felt good, but it was fun to see the numbers go up that high. I then took TWO days off, and that really really wasn't fun, but I've been feeling super crappy. I had a really bad headache for like three days straight, and my stomach was being weird. I couldn't do much more than leave my couch.

However, I got back on the bike today (even though I'm definitely not 100%). Also, and most importantly, I've OFFICIALLY registered for my first triathlon. It's May 22nd. And I would save money if I registered for two at once, so I'm also registered for one the weekend before I get married. We'll see if that one actually happens, haha. I wasn't paying attention to the date when I registered. Maybe it will be a great last minute self-esteem boost pre-wedding? Or maybe I'll do the one in May and decide that I'm stupid for ever thinking I can do it. ...But I have a feeling that this is something I will get seriously addicted to.

Look. Proof.

Expect a new running shoe review in the near future. I'm not up to it right now, and I've only gotten to use them once. I feel it's only fair to my old shoes to run at least two more times in the new ones before announcing how incredible they are.

Oh and wish me luck - I'm shopping for my WEDDING DRESS on tuesday. Please oh please let me fall in love (in person) with the one I've been obsessed with for over a year. SIGH.

That's all for now. Back to being a blob on the couch. I hope you're all feeling healthy!
