Back at'er

Well, I got home a week ago from being in Quebec for three weeks and all I can say is that life has been crazy. It was a good course and I have come to the conclusion that I really need to learn more French - the course wasn't an issue but it bothered me not being able to fully communicate when I was off the base (the cab ride from the Montreal airport to the base being one example).

Training wise, I got some decent runs in (after I was finished having a cold) and one swim in (the pool was way too hot to train in). No cycling, as my bike could not come with me and I really do not like spin bikes at the gym.

Work has been nuts, new boss, end of fiscal year headaches and a command structure re-organization - ingredients for a stressful week. On top of that, we have had two family events since I got back - one was basically just after I got off of the plane (with a quick stop to drop off my bags at home).

I did manage to get some good training this week, so not a write-off just not quite how I wanted to jump back in to things.

I dearly missed my regular pool (the one in Quebec was as warm as a bathtub, ugh) and I even missed my bike trainer (yes, I am nuts).

February already, this winter is flying - only four months until the first duathlon of the season!
