the dreams have started

August 10th, 2007 by

And I don’t mean the thoughts and plans and goals kind of dreams. I mean the kind that have me get in super workouts while I sleep, letting me wake up feeling I should be done with exercise for the day.

This time it was the same race I’ve dreamed about before. Along a canal that runs through a city, with water stops along the way, and the bike comes back into town along it. By a canal, I mean a fairly narrow, cement waterway — the kind about 10-15 feet below street level, and that you can see by looking down in certain spots. Anyways, the bike comes back into town along it, and the run stays along it.

Before I dreamed that Mike had mechanical issues. This time he was having heat issues (there’s always a reason I end up near him, and it’s not usually because I’m having a SUPER FREAKIN’ FLYIN’ FAST day ;)). So we were finishing up on the bike, and he was carrying his. We came around a turn and felt the breeze from the waterway (HA!) and it was soo refreshing he climbed back on. I woke up as I was planning to get running.

Maybe if I find a race that looks just like that and do it I can actually wake up feeling like I’ve slept, instead of like I’ve raced ๐Ÿ˜‰

    As much as I love racing and training there is no dream I hate more than to dream that Iยดm in a tri or that Iยดm training. When you wake up and have to start your workout you feel like “are you kidding me? I have been doing this all night!”

    Ooohh I LOVE the race dreams! Running in mud, forgetting my bike, running barefoot, getting lost on the route…can’t beat those anxiety dreams ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy them…they’re part of the journey!
