Today was an 'easy' day.
It started with a swim. We got into the pool and who shows up on deck but Bob from Chicago and Dean! Bob provided a mixed up fun workout which made the swim go by fast. Thomas got out early because he was "too cold" (seriously?) while the rest of us finished up with fun things like race starts, head out swimming and no breath (gee thanks, Marit).
Next up, an easy canyon run. Enjoyed the beautiful scenery - the red dirt path, rocks, blue sky and yellow wildflowers while enjoying MY conversational pace with Marit (which is not my LT). It felt good to go easy and keep things light.
We stretched under the sun and Cat proved she keeps everything in her car including 10 clowns.
Coffee and bagels next. Can't go wrong with that. Especially since they were bagels from Einstein's. Conversation. Too much sugar in Thomas' tea.
Last, an easy ride along the coast. I just sat in the back, let myself get dropped and did my easy thing. It was great. The views of the ocean, waves, and blue sky were inspirational. Marit joined me in back, we sat up and enjoyed the ride. Saving the legs for tomorrow's last hard ride.
Lots of thoughts going through my head that I will at some point put into more meaningful words. But until then, I will just report that it was a very easy, enjoyable and restorative day in the sun.
It doesn't get much better than that.
