Happy Birthday Hortense!
Your first 10 days being 26 promise to be epic!
The first day of our vacation in Cabo coincides with the beginning of the training season. Thus, one vacation is ending (training) while one begins (late honeymoon). Our honeymoon will double as an early season training camp! Sounds crazy, I know. But training in Cabo San Lucas will hardly be rough, I’m looking forward to hour long swims (water temp is in the 80′s) in the ocean, mixed in with lots of surfing and some long runs exploring the never-ending beaches. Being active is the best way to explore and discover and its what Hortense and I love to do. Plus, I am more than ready to get back into some training, the 4 weeks off have revitalized my body and rejuvenated my mind while replenishing my motivation.
The best thing for me while not training was having extra time. Having time to leisurely enjoy this opportunity with friends and family was a real treat. Today marks the 25th day of no structured training. I was still active, playing water polo once, riding my mtn.bike to work almost everyday, yoga, and doing weights (first time in 2 years). Having the start of the training season coincide with a vacation will make the transition even more enjoyable, I’m very eager to treasure some hot weather and have all day to train. By ‘all day’ I mean any time during the day, I don’t plan on doing any more that 2 hours of actual training. That leaves 22 hours to do all kinds of fun things.
