This week, my husband and I thought why not have a barbeque dinner at home after the training to celebrate the end of off season!? So, after five of us did the off season bike trainer session (yes there is such a thing) with our two coaches, everyone feasted on (what I can easily prepare as our cook just resigned) pork barbeque, chicken inasal (grilled chicken) sinigang na bangus sa miso (milkfish in tamarind and miso soup), plenty of chips, beer and ice cream! It was a simple dinner and I don’t think my cooking was excellent (no one said the food was good LOL) but everyone seemed to have fun and stayed late even if the mosquitos feasted on our legs.
I din’t take photos of the dinner nor the food preparation since it slipped my mind to take some souvenir shots. I guess I was preoccupied if the grilling was done right, the soup warmed enough, and simply if everyone was having a fantastic time. 🙂
This week also, I realized that it was my 1st year anniversary in swimming training! Yes, it’s been a year now! So, to celebrate this, I did a lot of amazon.com shopping! Well, I splurged on a few items that hopefully will make me faster. These are some of my motivation finds:
There were some items in my cart, but it will be a long list then if I post all the rest. So, after shocking my credit card and giving Amazon and Ebay a few dollars of profit, let us welcome the start of 2012 training! It’s now the end of off season…and the start of a new season! Let us train and race safe everyone!
