UPDATE - current health scare is something going on with thyroid hormones, but the endocrinologist wasn't as worried as my primary care doctor, and we're doing a third round of bloodwork next week once I'm off some meds for a week or so. Please keep your fingers crossed that that makes the levels more normal than the current "low normal".
Anyway, I have NOT been using healthy coping skills, so the main goal this week is to get back on that.
UK2ME, how was pumpkinman weekend?
maybe she's born with it, maybe it's chlorine
If you're injured and need some sympathy, PM me and I'm very happy to write back.

I had a great week last week - I missed one trainer ride because I had some serious fatigue from two early mornings of running and a fibromyalgia flare, but getting in those two runs was an achievement in and of itself. Pumpkinman weekend was fantastic! I was second to last in my division for the tri, but considering I was following the "roll out of bed and race" model of training, I met my expected arbitrary benchmarks. That gives me hope that once I actually train again, I can make solid improvements. I ran the 5K with a friend who was kind enough to slow down and stick with me, and that was a blast. Again, not fast, but... felt better than anticipated. I am so glad that I signed up and raced; I really missed the atmosphere and environment.
I'm struggling a bit more this week; I was supposed to run this morning, but a terrible night of sleep put paid to that. Maybe I'll get out of my own way and do it after work. Plan is:
Tues - 30min run
Wed - 45 min bike
Thu - 3 mile run
Fri - rest day!!
Sat - 1 hr bike, 4 mile run
Sun - 4 mile run
Also, need to stop eating chocolate like it's going out of style :oP
