Woke up today and went straight to my manager’s logs to find out if the staff in OKC was alright. I was shocked to see that they actually had a decent night. The Dalai Lama said that natural disasters do not discriminate by race, religion, or socio economic status. He’s correct. I will wait today to make sure our staff is safe and secure. I have a fear of tornedos. Not enough warning before a tornedo happens.
My life has taken a 180. I spent years worrying about what I ate. In youth I would count calories, worry about carbs and stay free of anything that could possibly cause weight gain. Now I spend countless hours researching food that can provide me with energy to go further in these damn races. Nothing seems to work. I have tried complex carbs like quinoa and oatmeal. I have tried to get pre enrgy shakes and powders. I have tried energy bars as well. The only common thread is that when I eat anything 2 hours or less before working out I feel sluggish. Sunday the Triathlon starts at 6:30 am. I am going to need to wake up at around 3:30 to ingest something so I can perform at an acceptable level. Urgh.
Other issue. I am severely sea sick. I have gone snorkeling with my son and thrown up in the water from only moderate waves. Friday is my first ever open water swim practice. I had this horrible vision of swimming and throwing up simultaneously. Fuck it, I will do this thing even if I am wiping vomit out of my hair for days.
