There has been much discussion amongst the populous regarding whether or not I’ll be getting a tattoo with a little M-Dot logo or other pictorial to signify my finishing an Ironman.
To round up some of the comments:
Jeanne took the more commanding approach:
“Go get the tattoo already!”
Xena beat around the bush:
“Sooooo, about the tattoo …..”
Kelly just straight up asked:
“I don’t think I’m the only one who is wondering… are you getting the tattoo?”
Well sports fans, hate to disappoint ya – but no tattoo for me. I prefer to decorate my ankle (which – if I had to get one, is where it would have been) with the cuts, scrapes and scratches of my running shoes as they scrape and cut into my skin in the last few miles of the weekly long run when my stride gets lazy and I manage to kick myself.
Just not my cup of tea. I prefer my tea parties to be more low-key. To some degree I think I personally prefer the anonymity when I go to the pool. I’ve got nuttin’ against anyone who has a tattoo – and I think most of them do actually look pretty cool. But alas, not for me.
As for a quick training update, indoor trainer workouts have basically returned to normal. As of this morning, swim workouts have returned almost back to normal, currently at the 3,400+ yard level, short of the 4,000ish yard level. Running is the only area still cut back till next week, mostly cause that has the highest impact.
On that note… I’m off early this afternoon for another enjoyable and relaxing weekend. Catch ya’ll on the other side with the deets!
