So last night I went to bed at a decent time but couldn't dose off until sometime during the Colbert Report. I actually had one of those nights where I remember being in a deep sleep, feeling like I had slept way too long, waking up in a sweat, really thirsty, and really nauseated, afraid to move for fear of what might happen. So I laid there, trying desperately to nod off, 3 AM, 4 AM, 5:19 was the last time I looked at the clock before I awoke with a start an hour later. I dragged myself out of bed, I needed to get on the bike but I could barely move, not sore, just had that sloshy I swallowed the ocean feeling. I tried, really tried to suck it up, the thought of repeats made that motion sickness feeling even worse. Ok, maybe just a spin, I thought to myself just as the heavens opened up and I hear the clammer of Thunder and Lightning looking all over the village for each other. I decided to bag it and get a massage. This was the wisest choice of my day as the masseur was none other than Rich "WHITEY" Condon from my swimming days in New Paltz. It was great to catch up! This inspired me, actually Linda inspired me weeks ago to do this too, after I left Rich's I stopped at Colleen's store "Tiger Lilly Jewelers" in Gardiner. We chatted for a bit, wish I had much more time to talk but I had more visiting to do. I ended my day at Pete's and Storm King and the diner. I am so wiped out from my day of rest that...Actually, I may get back on the bike tomorrow, or I may give myself one extra day, not sure yet.
Off to the DACKS again in the morning looking for that perfect sign or adventure to write about.

hmmmm sounds like you might need another day, I'm just sayin. Have a great day in the ADKS. I'm looking for an hour ride tomorrow, but I'm so busy with A's tri and getting the house ready for renters that I fear I'll miss out. I'll be chasing that great tired from working out feeling again!!!
