It has just about been 2 weeks since Ironman Western Australia and they have been a blur! So much happening, race related and non race related, no training (well maybe some swimming and non-coffee shop rides!). There have been Magazine and T.V. interviews, race reports and family, friends and sponsors to thank for such an awesome year! I thought I would be sleeping lots but that has been missing from the schedule and if I think that is going to change over the next few weeks I am dreaming!
As to be expected the body has taken that little bit extra to recover and due to the hype of the week, I didn’t exactly follow my normal recovery routine. There were too many other fun things to be doing!!
One of those included a trip to Rottnest with Cousin Wez, Guy and Paul. Wez kindly took us over on his boat and after some snorkling in the gorgeous water we had dinner at the newly renovated Rottnest pub. I hadn’t been there for years!
The food was delicious! You see Wez and Paul enjoying there Pizza in the background. There were Quokka’s everywhere keeping us company and the “more mature” ladies on the dance floor were keen to pick up the blokes at every opportunity!
Ninja Cat Wesley was in fine form and there was no lack of entertainment for the night!
The water was amazing and so clear. We saw sting rays and dolphins while swimming. Paul even got some shots of a 4m tiger shark! Lucky we were not in the water when he saw that one!!
There is still plenty of time for more R and R! Perfect considering xmas is just around the corner. The season is long and I am already excited about 2011
Lets hope I get all that Xmas shopping done in the next 7 days otherwise there will be trouble!
A BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO TWO PEOPLE WHO ARE EXTREMELY SPECIAL TO ME!
MY BROTHER MICHAEL AND BEST FRIEND BEC! ENJOY YOUR SPECIAL DAYS! SEE YOU SOON!
