Some people suck all the fun out

I am beginning to realize that in order to complete this indoor triathlon challenge I may well be spending the last two days (March 8th & 9th) at the gym crawling around the track to finish up the final miles. I donít have anything to do tomorrow night and Steve is off to a soccer meeting so Iím going to try to spend about 2 hours at the gym and get in at least 3-5 miles running (maybe Iíll breakdown and try a treadmill), 20 minutes on a bike (counts as 6.2 miles), and 22 laps in the pool. Iím not sure why this is making me so crazed since the payoff is low (a water bottle or some such chintzy give-away), but it is. Some guy completed the whole thing in the first three days and I was tempted to scrawl ďPARTY POOPERĒ across the bottom of his log.

Boot camp today made me alternately want to cry and throw up. We had to run stairs and for some reason it was particularly difficult. I think the segment times we ran were longer than usual and the heat was cranked in the stairwell making us all red-faced and sweaty. The last time we ran stairs I slipped at the bottom turnaround (I think the landing was wet from snow residue and likely sweat) and I think itís made me a little chicken Ė I was not my usually cavalier self on the way down. Iím going to bake cookies for one of the instructors Ė maybe it will buy me some brownie points. He likes oatmeal-raisin Ė not my forte, but Iíll see what I can pull off.

Is it really only Wednesday?
