No race this weekend... strange after doing 2 back to back weekends. Bordering on boredom? But rest is equally important in training. Not that I am the "rest" type but not competing is considered rest, sort of.
I had a great swim tonight at my local recreation center. I have been practicing drills because my swim coach, Takao, told me that I bend my knees too much. So I have been trying to kick with straight legs. Gosh, it feels so un-natural. Such a metaphor for life.... trying to re-learn something that I have been doing incorrectly for years.
More rain on tap for the weekend so bike ride is doubtful but I will get a couple of good runs in. Fun weekend planned. Going to visit my mom this weekend for her friend Petie's birthday party, and also going to a High School graduation party for my niece, Jasmine. A photo of her and one of her friends is included. She's on the right. My friend Abigail is joining me for both so a very social, fun weekend. So to answer the question... what's a girl to do without a race? I guess spend time training and being with loved ones. Sounds good to me!
