Dear Santa...

I'd like a massage for Christmas.

Wait, scratch that, I NEED a massage for Christmas. I have really been up-ing the training, swimming especially. I put 10,000 yards in just last week. That's 400 lengths of the pool. And my neck and shoulders are feeling it! My legs are pretty darn tired too, and I'm not particularly sure why. I did put in 3 good bike sessions on the trainer downstairs, but that's not unusual, and only got a couple runs in. Hmmm....
I've struggled mentally a bit in the last couple weeks. Just not feeling as energetic as usual and fearful of the endurance needs I require for IMSG. Like a friend Charity suggested, I probably just need a down week. I'd really like to push that out 1 more week out so I can do it over Christmas week. Then we're headed down to St George for a whole week where I'll put in LOTS of miles! Looking forward to it!

I am so glad you get to go down to SG to train for a week. I am also super jealous. I hope I get to do that later next year. I know it is hard to train hard right now but I also know that you can stick it out and do it. You are amazing! Happy Holidays!

I have a gift certificate that I won at a race for one at a school in the valley that I never redeemed...I'll have to fish it out and see if it's still good. If so, it's all yours.
