I know I got stuff done this week but frankly since I waited until today to write I sort of forgot. I do remember that I had a killer track session on Tuesday and that it felt great although I about died during the session. I also remember that on Thursday I did a time trial at the pool and managed to improve by 1minute and 30 seconds on a 1000 meters since last time trial which was just 1 month ago. I am pretty excited about this improvement. It shows that I have been working harder than I thought.
My greatest accomplishment was yesterday day 177. I actually made it to the beach with my friend Andrea. I have not seen her in forever and it so happens that we ran into each other on the street last week and planned this beach day. It’s crazy we live 5 minutes from each other and never see each other.
We had a great day. We could not have asked for better weather and the water was perfect.
At around 3:00pm we started getting hungry so we left the beautiful beach to grab something to eat. We ended up at Rosa Mexicano. I had been there before and remembered the guacamole and how good it was. They also had these little tortillas that were made fresh. It seems that things have changed since I was there. The guacamole was still good but there were no tortillas and the menu was different. It was ok but not as good as I remember. It didn’t much matter since we were just loving hanging out.
After lunch we were dropping Andrea off and we went in for a coffee and some wine. All in all it was a great day.
What I learned this week is:
1. I love the track
2. It really does payoff to swim on a regular basis even if I am getting up at 5am to do it
3. I truly love the beach. May be time to start looking for a place again.
4. I miss my friends Rick and Andrea. Need to see them more often.
5. I can actually enjoy a restaurant that is not that good if I am with great friends.
