Back - With a Vengeance

I have returned - and I am rested and well-fed and ready to rock and roll. Almost. I'm taking today and tomorrow off because I'm lazy. Well, today, because - I didn't feel like it. And tomorrow is my scheduled day off, anyway. Plus, this is my recovery week. So there.

The resort was beyond fabulous - all inclusive, palapas (big, roof covered beds on the beach) with bar service - "May I bring you a drink, Senora?" "Si, Juan, another Raspberry Colada. Gracias." - More food than you could imagine, swim up bars every 100 feet, Sun, Sand, Surf. Yep, it was heaven.

We returned from beautiful beaches and sun to snow and 11 degree weather. Sigh. But the time in my sarong ahs left me refreshed and ready to take on the rest of the winter - spring is just around the corner - right? Right?!?!?!

In other news, I bought the QR Caliente. She will be here tomorrow and I'm waiting with baited breath. This was a huge risk but it just felt right. Hopefully, it will all work out. I've already named her Pyro. I'll send you pictures of my new baby as soon as she's put together.

I trained a bit more than I thought I would in Mexico. I ran all three full days we were down there, swam everyday, and rode a bike on the "Jungle Tour" for about an hour. Very leisurely but the bike was trashed and a real challenge to keep upright, so I chalk that one up to "Skill Training".

Happy Late Valentine's Day to all!

Well I'm glad you had a warm time and it sounds like you used your time to get some workouts in, so you weren't a total sloth. Spring HAS to be coming soon. We deserve it.

Amen to that, Vickie!!
