A little R&R...


(If ever I saw a cat that resembled a liquid, this would be it).

This week is a recovery week...starting TODAY with a rest day. I've got the entire day off... REPEAT: I'VE GOT THE ENTIRE DAY OFF FROM TRAINING! I don't think you realize how great this is. Because its truly awesome. And yes, I love training, love pushing myself, love the work involved with pursuing my dreams.

But.

(Ahem).

We ALL need a day off now and then.

So I'm taking a page out of Tabbitha's and Anabelle's book today.



Good stuff! Except I won't nap in the laundry basket. Um, yeah. That wouldn't work. But all systems are go for rest!

Congratulations to everyone who raced this weekend - conditions were hard and my hat goes off to anyone who can put themselves out there! Kudos and congrats! Here's hoping that YOU are enjoying your R&R as well.

YAY for rest day!!! Thanks for all your kind comments.. they ALWAYS make me feel better :-) I had an unplanned day off on Saturday and then Jen gave me the option today too, but I went for a fun hike. Ooooh and if I can figure out a good time, I will definitely take you up on some good ol' training time in San Diego!!! Enjoy your day off!
