Every time I hear polypeptide amino acids I think about Star Trek. I was a geek growing up. I embraced it. I still do.
But, as I evolved into a student, the Amino Acids I encountered became interesting for different reasons. And then, as I morphed into an athlete, they became something else.
So... I went from being cranky and famished to being cranky and not.hungry.at.all.
We've done a little bit of running together in the last 3ish weeks, and he's kind of a milk pusher. So I accepted the crack and moved on. ~sure, whatever... I'm not hungry (see above about over training) but I'll drink the chocolate milk if it makes you happy~ and guess what?
AND I discovered a lactose free chocolate milk that tastes like crack might taste if crack came in chocolate milk form, which as far as I know, it doesn't and even if it did I shouldn't share that information.
Thursday I had a solid little hour long ride. I struggled to get in the groove, but finished on strong legs... so it all evened out. And after the ride, I went for a short run with my Tri Wife.
"Oh HEY! I'm a runner!"
I don't know if it was the rest after the over training incident, or the muscles are feeling good a few days into the taper, the soup in my diet, or the copious amounts of strategically timed chocolate milk, or WHAT but Holy Carp, that run felt like... running. My pace was my old pace. My legs were my old legs. My MOJO was definitely... yeah.
And yeah, my MOJO and I totally finished the workout sharing some delicious chocolate milk on the drive home.
I suppose I ought to tell Ironguy he was "right".... or, maybe I'll skip it.
I'm sure he already knows.
~savor the run~
