Well....... I have been taking my recovery period. a blog break just sorta happened. Since many of you are also on Facebook, I have been able to maintain communication via one liners.
I am getting my running back with some consistency. I do a trainer workout twice a week, and I have been doing the winter tri swim group workouts at Oberlin. Those are a blast. I haven't been in the pool since before XMas. I am all right with that, but I will be back in this week.
Music has really been fun this winter. I have been doing a lot of song writing and my performances have been to the level I expect and enjoy. I recieved a standing ovation at one show last month. This is a rare event for me, so I was very flattered. It also told me that I may have done something right. My relationship with my instruments has become much more delicate and deliberate. Some times I think I know what I am doing.
My race plans right now include: The Big Sur Marathon Maybe Race for Recovery 70.3 in June. Steelhead(Tho Bbop suggested a half near the IMKY course) GCT Sprint Followed by some guitar playing at the finish line
I will most likely toss in a few more Oly and sprints. My big plan this year is to have fun.
