Legs to brain: This is as far as we're going to go this time, buddy. Good job, let's head home.

Brain: Who is this we? Do you have a mouse in your pocket? We've got over a 1/2 mile to go!

Legs: We're not moving anymore - period. We did your crazy 10 mile route on the bike, & we don't want to run. Get used to it, we run this joint.

B: Oh yeah? How do you like that? (cramp in calf) Get to steppin!

L: We eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast, you think a little cramp is going to get us moving? Ha!

B: You eat pieces of shit for breakfast?

Foot: (timidly) Hey, I'm kind of hurt down here.... yesterday's blister is starting to swell again.

B & L: Shut up!

This is the inner monologue I imagine my body having with itself. Besides, of course, the occasional thought that I am nuts & should be at home eating bonbons.

Yesterday, I did my same old 3 mile route in 34:11. Got a couple blisters, cursed myself, and realized that I have the best fucking husband EVER!! He got me an iPod shuffle for my bday - which isn't even until the 17th!! He was at home putting my booty shakin songs on there for me while I was blistering up like an albino in the caribbean. I feel bad that I didn't get to use it because I went to do the tri course with Susan & Shawna. (btw, Shawna is FAST) I'll definitely use it on my next workout - which is Saturday. Unfortunately, a spur of the moment baby shower is to be had & wrecked my plan for tomorrow. Oh well, I'm no elite athlete...I have a life outside of training & I am going to enjoy it!

That is too funny. My legs and brain seem to argue a lot also. You are kicking ass in your training - keep knocking out the workouts!!

You are not crazy... doesn't everyone have these thoughts?!?! I know I do. Enjoy your social time away from training because thats what makes your mind fresh and ready to tackle the next battle!
