Commentary:

Trying to ease back into drylands. I've definitely lost a bit of strength and fitness from the long taper + 2 week viral malaise break + almost another 2 week vaca break. I'm still feeling unmotivated -- probably b/c I don't have a taper meet in sight. Hopefully, switching to TRX will produce some motivation with my predilection for "shiny new things."

I really wanted to go to hot yoga today after standing in the rain for hours at a summer league meet this am. But the only post noon class was at 4:00. No can do, as I'm headed out to a 6:30 dinner reservation with the fam. I asked the kids to be "agreeable" today for my birthday. So far, my request has been honored.

I uploaded 4 random pictures of Copenhagen, a fabulous city, and 1 from the beach in Warnemunde, Germany. Naturally, the family beach had topless women. The two 9 year olds on the trip were gawking. lol

    Happy birthday, I hope the restaurant has a nice Chard for you. I will drink some Pinot in remote celebration

    I am glad the husbands didn't get caught gawking like the kids. Topless is much better than "Did you see what just swung by? I wish I hadn't."

    It does!

    The husbands were running 13 or so miles through the German woods whilst I took the kids for a swim in the chilly Baltic. Oddly, the older 60+ women were topless and the younger women had bikini tops. We did see a male jogger running naked through the streets of Copenhagen. No one (except tourists) even cast a glance.

    Thanks Katie. It was a good one and, except for swimming, I will stick with this age for many years.
