I write this post whilst lounging at the white sandy Palm Beach in Aruba. It's hard to find time to blog while on vacation but I don't want to lose my momentum.
I just had to move under the Palapa due to a short sprinkle of rain. The weather has been perfect actually. Not one day of rain. I'm also listening to Britney Spears. Something I would not be found doing at home. I'm not a fan of Brit however this "Love Me Hate Me" tune is quite catchy.
This morning I woke up to the horror of a bad nightmare. I dreamt that my tri coach Jen decided she didn't want to coach me anymore. Or more that she was transferring me to her newest coach who had just been certified. I was mortified and depressed. Thankfully it was just a dream. I'm pretty sure I know why I had this dream but I won't delve to deeply into that.
Ok.. so... the point of this blog is to inventory my training in Aruba. For starters, my buddy Mel B. and I decided to create our own Aquathon.
Dive - swim fast -run repeat X 10.
We dove from the dock, photo to come, raced each other to the bouy, all the while fixing our now lost bathing suits, swam to shore, jogged back to dock and repeated. What fun. Even though it only took 14 minutes we were pretty tired.
The other highlight of our training took place on the beach as well. We decided to run 2 miles bearfoot to try to strengthen our feet and ankles. We came away uninjured and satisfied with out effort. We ran 2 normal shoed miles before hand.
Today I just ran 6 miles and added in some polymerics. I'm also going to bring Coach back ASAP. I have decided I need her more now than later. That's all for now..
