Another great day of classes. I woke up feeling well and refreshed. Surf lessons were at 10am so we made our way down to the beach a bit early and had some espresso to perk up. It was very cold this morning and prior to the espresso, I was dreading squeezing into another wetsuit and….
Today was our real rest day. The only thing we have scheduled is a photoshoot of all the cool things we learned and a tour of the castle in Peniche. It was cold and cloudy in the morning when I did my warmup and yoga outside. Our only goal for today was to photograph our….
I woke up this morning feeling surprisingly ok. It seems the warming up and cooling down helps with soreness quite a bit. That said, 5 minutes into my morning class and I knew I needed a day of rest. I couldn’t hold my weight off the ground for more than 20 seconds at a time…..
Wow. Another amazing day. I woke up this morning so stiff and sore that I struggled to get out of bed. My first thought every morning is to text Brian but it was only 3am his time so I refrained. Some of the others were already awake and talking in the kitchen while eating breakfast…..
Oh my GOD what an awesome day!!! I’m so worn out, I feel broken and I don’t know how I’m supposed to do this for 3 more days! We worked so hard and I learned so many new things! The group is great! We’re all at similar skill levels but we have different strengths. Some….
So, last night turned out to be a bit stressful. When we returned to the house around 10 o’clock at night, I was still quite jet lagged and wide awake. So I decided to go for a short run to tire myself out. It wasn’t until I returned to the house that I realized I….
I slept for 12 hours last night and struggled to get out of bed this morning. The temperature is comfortable about 68 degrees and cloudy. I was hoping for sunny beach whether but I suppose this is better because apparently the sun is very hot here and people burn very easily. I arrived 1.5 days….
It’s finally here!! Today’s the day we left for Portugal! I awoke this morning feeling pretty pumped. I was comfortable with where I had left things in my personal and work life and was ready to put all that on hold for a bit while I explore more of Europe! Last night, a bunch of….
Day two of packing and planning was exciting but not without complications. This is a particularly difficult trip to plan for because of it’s three distinct parts, the distance it spans, and the changing temperatures across countries and over time. For the first part of my trip, I’ll be on a sunny beach in Portugal…..
Hello again, my dear friends! Last time I posted to my blog was when Brian and I were hiking a section of the Pacific Crest Trail in 2016. I’m so happy to say that we’re back at it! In October 2019, I will be spending some time in Europe hiking the Portuguese Camino de Santiago…..
