Things have been looking good as we've made our transition from the desert heat to the lush green hills of western South Dakota. Part work and part vacation, I was very worried that training and nutrition would take a header as I adjusted to not only the altitude but the reality of being in a new home, bed and routine.
I'm happy to report nothing but good news so far - my bike arrived (unscathed I believe), we've been eating well (and right) for lunches and dinners and I've been able to mix up my training with some trail running and elevation ta boot (man, that's fun).
I managed to get in an hour swim this morning - don't ask me how far I swam because I couldn't tell you...I haven't been sleeping well and have some tightness in my neck and shoulders. I wasn't feeling great when I got into the pool so I wasn't really interested in any sort of distance. So I just swam. Took breaks when I was tired or winded and then kept going. I felt better afterwards, so that's good. I just hope this musical beds doesn't cause any additional issues.
Going to get the bike assembled today and then take it in for a tune up in the hopes of going for a ride Friday or Saturday.
My secondary concern is all the rain - it's mostly at night but it does put a damper on things. Rain, rain go away...
