Off the Mark

I guess every athlete has to have an off day. 57 seconds this morning. Not even good enough for a bronze. Thanks goodness it's not the finals. You can just never take a break in this sport. Never let your guard down. I just knew that plate of chicken nachos with guacamole last night was going to be a problem. But it called to me sweetly with its siren song and I fell prey. Talk about moving slow this morning. I may have to retire. Deb tried to encourage me by saying, "At least there is always coaching!" Yeah right, like any athlete is motivated by the prospect of coaching.

I had no idea what this post referenced, so I had to go back and re-read a bit. When I first read it, the thought that popped into my head was ED. D:

I'm so very wrong inside.

Oh that is so wrong! No thankfully no dysfunction in that area yet. Doesn't get used a whole lot but last time I checked...

Oh, I didn't think so...but everytime I re-read this post with that thought in mind, I crack the hell up. Especially when I think of what "coaching" would entail.

U yeah. Don't think I'd volunteer for that job. Although, I have had ED before and overcame it so I guess I could be a mentor. Or was that more info than you needed to know?

That being said, YOU CAN DO EET! Turn the hot water off! Pretend you have only thirty seconds of water left! Visualize!

The problem this morning really was I had indigestion from the nachos and moving slow. I used lukewarm water. I'll try freezing cold tomorrow and see how that goes. Good to know my fans are rooting for me!

Cheer up, everyone has an off day. Nachos are my downfall too.
