Testing Stage

While I eagerly wait the results of my blood and hormone testing, I have filled my spare time with research on recovery practices. I have been able to increase my flexibility and modify my yoga technique. I really hope that there is a quick solution for my recent sluggishness. While the Tour has been rollin along I have been reading The Millar Diaries. http://http://www.slipstreamsports.com/2008/07/17/there-are-also-heros-and-they-need-you-to-believe

Well, finally was able to see a specialist who actually know what they are talking about. Had a 1 hour consultation today that I truly believe should locate the root of my issues. While surfing today I came across this!

ReSeT

Well it's official, I have hit a large slump. My training has been absolute garbage over the past 4 weeks. I have had a really tough time pushing myself, and when I'm able to overcome the barriers I have absolutely nothing left in the tank for the next day. I have begun to evaluate things, iron, supplements, oils, blood test, time off, but only time will tell. At this point I will not race the Heart of the Rockies Triathlon on July 20th as I believe it will only make things worse. I have begun to formulate a plan but the more I want to dictate this 'funk' the more I realize my control is minimal. I could go on and on about how much this effects my life but that would only drum up more funk.

I think the true answer is to get really pissed this weekend, to the point where I puke all over myself. It will work kind of like pushing the reset button on your computer.
