I've been on an extended break that doesn't seem to be ending. I feel a little burned out now that all the Ironman excitement is wearing off and even though I have light training on the schedule, I've been skipping it most days in favor of just living my life and catching up on the millions of things left undone for the past nine months. I feel a little sluggish as a result and know when I resume normal activity I'll be re-energized, but for now I think it's a break I need both mentally and physically.
One of these days I'll post my full report, maybe in parts or maybe just one long post. I'll also load up a slideshow of the 150+ photos I've already posted on Facebook. I'm still buzzing emotionally from the incredible experience, but for once I'm slowing down and listening to my body - and my body wants to be lazy. So I'll indulge in it for a few more days, then try to get myself back on track. Lake Placid is only 10 months away after all!
