Everyone Needs...

a quickie once in a while right?  RIGHT?  Uh huh.  Admit it... it's allllllllll good.

Ok!  Training is going REALLY well right now.  I'm finding out that Ironman training aint no joke. I can fake a half-iron... but apparently NOT a full Ironman.  Huh.  Go figure.  My challenge continues to be proper recovery... and I'm doing what I can but it's virtually impossible to eliminate additional stress right now.  I know it sounds terribly "hippy" and wanna-be "Zen"... but the best I can do at points is sit still and breathe. 

OH!  My swim is coming along nicely.  I'm VERY close to being where I was at the end of the season last year and I couldn't be more pleased with my progress!  2 miles in the lanes last night with ZERO problems.  YAY!

Hope you're all happy, healthy, and whole!  Spring break is coming up and for those of you in snow-covered states... I hope you get to hang someplace warm n sunny!  You can get REALLY tan in as little as 3 days!

Breathe...

You look cold. VERY cold. I <3 my trainer on days like that... actually I <3 it all the time because I think the drivers in Vancouver are trying to kill me.

Well, well...another note from the mystery man. I often wonder what crazy shenanigans you've gotten yourself into. Like the photo...where are you? Do you just meander thru the woods lookin for goofy places to take photos?
Hm.
