It ended up being a pretty good family weekend - still feeling a little under the weather, I just decided to give up on any training aspirations I had for this weekend.
Saturday was beautiful and sunny and perfect for the T-Ball Opening Day Parade and party.... T-Ball, Baseball, Little League - call it what you will - is awesome! I have to say they really have it figured out compared to a lot of the other kids leagues. It's all about sportsmanship, you hear it again and again and again... the kids learn about being on a team and cheering on your teammates and all kinds of other great things... it's just a great vibe.
Saturday afternoon was spent in a friend's backyard enjoying the sun - Maya's 4th birthday was the event but the sun was the star for all of us sun-starved folk...
Sunday was pretty mellow - raining... Sacha gave me a free morning to read the paper and enjoy a coffee at Starbucks - very relaxing. I then took over with the kids while she took a nice long walk in the rain. All in all very relaxing day. Left me feeling mostly ready for the week which is good because I need to ditch this fever, cough etc. ASAP!
Monday Masters: We knocked off 3km in the pool this morning. It was a lot of fast 50s - some on :50, some on :55. Also a fair amount of kick which for me turns into "pull". It was alright though I did spend a lot of time coughing into the water and also at the edge... it was tough. The coughs were heaving, hacking coughs - not pleasant...
I am back at it, though far from perfect.... hopefully better tomorrow. I am also nursing a bad blister on my leg - came out of nowhere and very disappointing. Might have to go leg-less for a few days....
Today was LASERDOME day for Mattias' birthday - pretty fun times for all the kids (and yours truly). If you ever find yourself in a Laser Tag centre 1. sign up and play with the kids it's awesome and 2. bring earplugs.
Gotta run - b-day dinner. Peace.
Laser Dome here we come!
