Update / Q& A Pass it on!

Today is the first day that I'm feeling better and more towards normal.  The CAT scan came out clear which is good.  I mostly felt off balance, nauseus, lil' pukey dukey, dizzy and all that jazzy stuff.  I handled not being at the TRI pretty well and took it with a grain of salt.  I am not sure I would have handled it the same way if that happened with my marathon. 

It turned out last minute that a friend had a number she couldn't use and we were going to do the ol' switcharooni.  Up until Saturday morning I was still going to "try the tri" to be honest.  It took a little of me getting ill after a swim for me to say to myself-cut the shit, you're not racing.  Toughing it out is what I do, listening to my body is what I don't do, its what I am trying to learn!  Toughing it out is what I've done in the past and its gotten me in trouble-this was a lesson and its the first time I've listened.  So to you concussion....

On that note...

One of the blogs I follow, The Manly Runner has started a Question and Answer forum.  I was tagged which is very exciting!  I hope you have some questions but more so I hope I have some answers!!!! I will try my darndest!  So give it your best shot, ask me a question, any question....running, training, biking, swim, kids, school, the hub....you get the picture!

I will choose five blogs to pass the Q & A on to! Looking forward to it!
