I have been really stressed out with all of the holiday stuff. I have been forgetting important meetings, and I definitely have been staying up too late and not sleeping well. Whenever I have stressful times in my life, I have stressful dreams, usually involving forgetting something very important or showing up to something completely unprepared or running very, very late. The dreams usually feature either me in college or me doing music-related.
Last night was no different, although this time I was racing an ironman. When I joined the dream, I was about halfway through the bike and feeling really great. I finished and got off the bike, then proceeded to do all sorts of crazy things during my transition time. I set up a play date for Ryan, I had some dinner with my mom, I searched out a public restroom to take a potty break, I eavesdropped on some old women talking about making shirts, and all this while wearing my racing clothes! The whole time I was completely panicked because the minutes of my transition just kept ticking away. I kept saying, "Oh no, my T2 time is up to an hour already....I really need to go!" Then I finally started heading back to the transition area, but I had to take this really long path, and I started to worry I wouldn't be able to finish.
I finally was able to force myself to wake up...I just wanted the dream to end.
I wonder if I finished??
