Go Go Go

Maybe the reason I'm feeling off kilter today (can't use the 4 letter S word!) has something to do with the fact that I was PUMMELED in the surf yesterday. Hux was beyond awesome and met me for an Easter morning ocean swim. The surf didn't look so big from the parking lot, but once in the water I was singing a different tune. I wanted to quit and go get coffee instead. I was tossed around like a rag doll, but my amazing new flotation device came in clutch! I couldn't stay in the surf. I needed to test this puppy out! I'd be lying if I didn't say it was love at first stroke. The TYR suit is amazing. My arms feel like they can move smoothly and I simply feel stronger in the water than I usually do in wetsuits.
Ya, we were tough out there (and I promise the surf was big, even though it looks teeennny tiny in the background).
I'm without pics from my torturous ride on Sat. Let's just say I was pummeled out on the road as well. The Swami's boys had their way with me :( My HR was sky high (never dropped below 170). I really want to think the ride was faster than usual, but I'm sure it's just that I have a long way to go to find any sense of cycling speed. But my heart was in it, and I hung on for dear life. I just want to be fast like them! Is that so much to ask!?!?!?
Beth and I enjoyed a great Easter sunset run. Both of us sported our pastel easter attire, but she came complete with a giant chocolate bunny! I might have to do that loop five more times to just burn off the calories in the bunny's head.
The highlight of the weekend was celebrating my old roommate and awesome friend Courtney's recent wedding. I can't believe it's been over 3 yrs since we lived together. I miss her to pieces, but loved every second I was able to spend with her this weekend! Congratulations Courtney and Tom!!!
Here's to hoping I wake up feeling healthy and energetic tomorrow! because the first triathlon of the season is on tap for this weekend: Superfrog Half Ironman.

Health and Happiness to you! and Happy belated Easter ;)
