Let's remember that I only have one kid, and a pretty mellow one at that. You have FIVE.
: You'll get through it, because that's what you have to do, ya know? Let the unimportant stuff (cleaning, cooking if necessary) go, and just worry about surviving. You can do it!
and welcome to the newbies!
h-n-b~I like the Moving Comfort Fiona bra a lot. I still use it now, but started wearing it when DS was probably around a year or so and still nursing. It's not really a nursing bra but because of the way the straps adjust, you can easily make it work as one.
l_m_b_~I'd probably go for a 5k first, just to comfortably get that distance under your belt and have the experience before jumping up to a 10k. I think you have enough time to train for a 10k, but if you're worried at all about having time for training or anything else, the 5k will be a much easier goal to reach. If you really want to do the 10k though, you definitely could, and we'll be here to support you!
jenlove~Lots of cake left! Come on over! And don't beat yourself up about the training stuff. It will come. You've still got two months. That's a long time. Just try to let go of any thoughts you had about competing and turn those thoughts to completing. You can do it. You can. You can walk 3 miles, right? So you can walk the run portion if you need to. The bike might be slow, but you can do that, too. And heck, you can doggy paddle the swim if you need to! You CAN do it. Hang in there!
Hang in there, sister. This, too, shall pass. And seconding the idea bout trying to swim or bike if you can. Maybe check with your doctor and see if the elliptical might be ok sometime soon?
I'm sorry about your bad news.
So..............INSURANCE IS COVERING THE BIKE!!!!!
I'm so relieved! I had to fax the receipt for the bike (thank goodness I *just* found it the other day), and the adjuster said they'd cut a check minus the deductible and get it out to me! Woohoo!
Now if only the bike shop would call me with some information.
I would seriously call them and raise some hell, but apparently my friend's coach is the one handling it, so it's turned into this kind-of-delicate situation whereby I don't want to piss anybody off or anything because she's a friend of a friend. My friend says she's way overworked and that she would relay the info that I would like some urgency applied toward this. I understand she's overworked. I get that. But if you knew the person whose bike it was (we've met a few times), knew that she's a triathlete who's got a race coming up this weekend and can't really afford to be without a bike, wouldn't you think you'd try a little harder? I mean, my friend who works in a bike shop in Telluride was able to talk to her rep about it and get me all the information I currently have on FRIDAY. BEFORE 10 AM!
Anyways, I AM relieved that insurance is going to pay for it. I can make do for this week, since it's a race week and I probably wasn't going to ride far anyway, and I'll have my friend's bike for the race itself, but I really kind of need something next week, or I'm stuck going to spin class only. Which is fine for the winter, but not during race season!
We went to get DS's three year pictures taken this morning. He was pretty cooperative at first, and then just decided he was done. Totally clinging to me, done. Oh well. We got some cute ones before he quit, at least!
Now I'm just trying to get caught up on a few things before going and checking in with my classes that start today.
They should be up online so I can see exactly what I've gotten myself into. I'm a bit scared.
rr~We got done with pictures in time to get to the Y for noon spin class. So at least I got some sort of exercise in today!
