Like my sunglasses? ha ha. They are HUGE. so big they slide down my nose. Oh well. $0.50 at the Thrift store so I can't really complain. Even though I am :)

We've had 1 week off of training since our big 60 km run and ride weekend and its been exquisite! Time to go for long beach walks first thing in the morning before work and even do some photography. It's been a real treat.  I had the day off yesterday and spent the entire day working in our garden. Heaven.

Gracey recently posted about wearing white jeans and I commented that I had never even owned any. This is about the extent of the white pants situation for me and even at that when I wear these about 1 hour into the outfit they get all bagged out in the bum and knees and have no shape to them.  I think I am just not lucky with pants anyway.  I'm also breaking the fashion rules as I am not 'supposed' to wear tops like this that lack any waist definition.  Yes. I am bad. Bad to the bone.

Coral TShirt

I ate  2 breakfasts this morning. Why you ask?  I had a piece of sprouted grain toast with almond butter at 5am then swam 8.5 km at the pool. Came home. Made steelcut oats and ate them with the canned peaches we made last summer and some almonds. Then made a killer decaf americano (I drink these black).  Then off to work I went. I had a bunch of coffee meetings and since Friday is casual day I wore my jeans and tshirt with this cute new scarf.  I actually found this scarf at London Drugs of all places and it was on sale so I scooped it up in attempt to get a little more girly stuff in my wardrobe.  

I don't know if you noticed though (I hadn't) that I am still wearing my sport watch.  It wasn't until the end of the day when I met with my coach that he pointed it out and laughed and said " you know your'e an athlete when you wear your sport watch all day". hah ha.  I have a GPS in this watch however so its very cool to train with- nice to track my mileage and download the stats at the end of the work outs- it shows you a map of elevation and everything.

Anyway, I love this coral color and will look for more of it!!  Happy Weekend. I am off to ride 200 km on Saturday as part of my training. Fingers crossed for blue skies :)
