In order to plan ahead, this week I’m stocking up on running shoes, goggles, gels, bars, and lots of conditioner and shampoo. That reminds me of another reason why I strongly dislike swimming ~ hello hair damage!!!!! Back in my competitive diving days my hair literally turned a shade of green. No joke! Yuck!
After several scoldings from my hair stylist, I started wetting my hair and soaking it with conditioner before hitting the pool. Apparently your hair doesn’ t soak up as much chlorine if it’s already wet... And for those of you who get the after-swim-rat’s nest like me, it does work! Call me a prissy or superficial but green hair=not attractive! Anyway enough of my triathlon-beauty tangent... back to next season-
I'm so ready for 2010. I'm hoping after my pro-longed R &R this year I'll be healthier, faster, and stronger. I already feel more mentally prepared than ever. It's horrible to say, but traumatic injuries toughen your psyche more than anything I know. Cheers to 2010!
