Keeping The Dream, Moving Forward With A Rest Day

JaniceDreamcatcherChristieECWith the day being so unseasonably warm; it was almost a shame to not be outside running or riding a bike, but I managed. Today was a rest day, so rest I did. The highlight for my training was getting a nice evening visit with my coach. We went over my test results from last week and just had a good visit about how I felt about my progress. I like that she re-enforced looking at how far I have come the last 3 months and even for more of a measurement where I was one year ago. I really like how thourough she covers my workouts and looks at my progress.  This will be our last “regular” call, we will be using Skype while  she is in Australia competing.  So join me in rooting on Dr. Amanda Stevens, my coach and fellow Oklahoman,  as she leaves for Down Under to start her 2013  Ironman season! Go get your dreams too Amanda!

Tonight I am pretty much speechless. So for music I will go with an Enid, Oklahoma artist that we lost way to soon; Micheal Hedges and Follow Through.

Relaxing Into A Recovery Day

Today is a rest and recovery day! So rest and recover, I will!

I think this cold snap has kicked off a strain of Colorado memories for me, lots of great times in Crested Butte. Was a strange time of life back then, I guess just a part of growing up. Today I look back on it fondly, Crested Butte will always have a special place in my heart. So for tunes today I am going with Dan Fogelberg’s Part Of The Plan. Enjoy and have a blessed day.
