The Weekend – The Compressed Version

• Phuket was a blast! The race, the company of friends, the place. I enjoyed the getaway tremendously.

• To top it off, I came in third in my age group and received a trophy and a Timex watch. The timing was not anything to shout about – I knew that going into the race since the route is tough.

• Slight downside was my achy hips – it practically locked up after the race and I was more or less immobilized in the hotel on Sunday and even had trouble getting a shuteye that night. Good news is that the light, easy swim on Monday morning helped and the hips and legs are (sort of) back to regular mode.

• It has been consecutive workout days since I got in yesterday afternoon. We started with the back-and-chest combo yesterday evening since the hips were still a bother.
