three things thursday

1. Consistency - I loved reading all of your comments yesterday about consistency and checking your Garmin/treadmill etc! It's nice to know I'm not the only one who plays mind games while running!

2. Wrist/Training Update - My wrist is kind of feeling better. I've been running and sleeping without the splint and only wearing it during the day. My wrist actually feels fine, but it's my hand that's bothering me these days. Sadly, while my splint wearing days are numbered, I still can't put any weight on it (which makes stretching post-run really complicated) or open jars or make any kind of decent fist, so the idea of riding a bicycle is out. I tried to tell myself I would be able to tri next weekend but it's just not going to happen. To look on the bright side of things though: I'm running an awesome race this weekend with some incredible bloggers, I can defer the tri for next year, and it's probably a good idea to not tri for the first time 5 days before I leave the country for 2 months.

3. India - After months of planning, searching the internet, reading guide books and talking to friends, colleagues and other people, I have finally booked my flight to India! On August 6, I'm flying from Colombo, Sri Lanka to Bangalore India! I plan to spend a few days in Bangalore and really take up the sights and sounds of the South (how's that for alliteration?!) before making my way up to Delhi to do the Golden Triangle, maybe venture into Rajasthan and then down to Mumbai for some Bollywood and yoga before coming back to New York. I. Can't. Freaking. Wait. I've wanted to go to India almost my whole life and it is finally happening! If you've been to India, please share your experiences! I want to know everything!

That's all for today!
I woke up this morning and decided that today is going to be an awesome day, so guess what? It is!
I hope you're all having equally awesome days and gearing up for a hot weekend!
Have a good one!
