Well, I have a war story to share from the weekend. There I am in my wetsuit taking a gel just before the 2km swim start. Innocent enough...
I had a bit of a crash and burn for my race. As you know, I have been feeling sick. I went into the race feeling 90%. Long story short I swam, biked and only ran about 5km and had to stop I was feeling so bad. I was struggling to breath throughout the race and got to the point where I had to pull out. I haven't had to do this before and it was very disappointing. YES the honest truth is I even cried as I walked the 5km back toward the finish line. And all the stuff runs through your head like " I am a loser, I'll never get better, I won't have what it takes to do the next race... how will I ever do Ironman like this?... fatass...loser..."... you get the idea.. you know.. those little gremlins in your head that are oh so quick to rush in and fill your head full of not so nice thoughts!!! DO YOU EVER HAVE THOSE??
Am on the mend this week, taking it easy. Eating perogies and I even had ice cream. Where is the real Jodi???? YIKES!! :)
Hope you are all well and looking fabulous as ever!! xoxo J
