I'm a blueberry

And probably not the kind you'd want to eat :(
I'm black, purple and blue from falling on the ice yesterday.
Upon waking I wasn't really sore, just tired and stiff. A little black Pike's Place coffee was the prescription to get me to the pool.

Swim was rather pathetic. Water felt good on my legs but the resistance hurt my purple palm. The flip turns weren't so forgiving on my spine either. The sun came out of the gray storm when I saw my friend Carly. It felt like ages since we last saw one another.....really it was my bday run but I was delusional at that point. Anywho, it was great catching up and watching her swim. She's a beautiful shark in the water.

As the day went on my lower back grew achy as did my legs. The tops of my quads swelled up and looked and felt like I was smuggling golf balls. Trigger point helped, as much as it could. I also puffed up, round like a blueberry and developed a sadistic migraine. Oh how I love PMS.

PM Spin - 60 mins - Avg watts 145/Avg HR 138
Spin felt good on my legs, not good on my head. Post spin puking made my head feel better but left my tummy ill. You win some you lose some right? I'm empty yet still bloated like a F***ing blueberry. Give me a break, break me off a piece of that Kit Kat bar.
