It's amazing how the littlest thing can upset the balance, an extra long work meeting, adapting to alternating blasts of a/c and heat wave or a double workout day. Napping is very important to me when training and working hard. Once you get used to the routine a 10 minute nap can be like mentally and physically hitting the reset button. Very refreshing and just as important as the hard work part.
It takes a lot of focus to work full time and get in enough training to be competitive at the level I want to be. Every once in awhile I come up for air and realize I'm feeling stuck in a bit of a rut. What to do with very little time or money?
Adventures - Most often happen accidentally post race, driving home when I think I know better than the gps.. eat first, then drive!
The Beach - Rock Point Provincial Park or Charles Daley Park.
A Good Book - The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (my grandma's from there!) and The Cove (takes place in spring training locale) are two recent reads.
Painting Toenails - Mine..and you thought I was a tomboy.
Cooking - Anne Guzman food for my boyfriend using garden veggies.
Gardening - Dirt is NOT Soil
Coffee - Black.
Earl Grey - Hot.
In a nutshell, this is how I relax and refocus.
