Merry Xmas...

I am going to do this quickie blog before I head to bed.

This morning woke up at 4 am. I was watching Anne of Green Gables till midnight last night. I only had 4 hours of sleep. Yes I blame Anne of Green Gables...her and her blossom friends (or kindered spirits) must have got to me. Hehe..it is actually quite a good movie. I think I am getting too sensitive. I watched it back in Junior High. Some of the scenes were beautiful.

I have been to the island where the story took place (Prince Edward Island). It is amazing. Peaceful and quiet. I am going to go again next year at the end of my season to unwine (and have seafood [oh so good there]).

Just to summarize my training for today:

8:40 am - 10:00 am - drills until my left wrist hurt when i twist it
10:00 am - 11:30 am - workout..oh I am so weak....
5:00 pm - 5:30 pm - one leg bike drill while watching Band of Brothers (oh so good)
8:10 pm - 9:40 pm - more swim drills since my hand doesn't hurt anymore

It was good. I really enjoy the zipper switch drills. Just like golf, when u get that perfect stroke, you want to do again and again. I can't wait until tomorrow.

I dropped off some toys and canned goods at a homeless shelter. I figure this is the least I can do. They were in need of bus tickets so I got some for them.

I am very fortunate to have good health, good family and well at least stay warm and have enough to eat. I know a lot of people out there are not as well as I am. There is always some sort of inner peace when I volunteer. I always believe in giving others a hand b/c that's what Jesus command us to do. Also the fact that someday when I need help, I would want someone to do the same.

All in all, today is a good day. No stress. No rush rush to do this and that. I just do what I want to do. Merry Xmas everyone. I know I will.

What a day!

Keep up the good man! You're helping those in need and it will be more rewarding to you than them.

Have a good Christmas Cliff and hope to train/race with you in 06!!!
