Either way, after 2 races in 6 days, I'm taking a much-needed rest day.
My definition of rest looks like this:
|North Bay trail at the Naval Live Oaks Area of Gulf Islands National Seashore|
Our hike was leisurely and relaxing. Call that "active rest" if you must, but I couldn't let a perfect day go to waste by staying indoors. (There's plenty of time to be indoors Monday through Friday. Call that "work" if you must.)
My definition of rest also looks like this:
|French wine selection at a local wine shop.|
Oh, who am I kidding?
I still love wine.
I've just gotten out of the habit of going to tastings and frequenting wine bars.
After our leisurely hike, and a leisurely lunch, I took off to a wine store and spent an hour browsing the shelves for bottles I haven't tried before. The clerk poured me a taste of a tempranillo that he "just happened to have open."
The wine was delicious.
Two bottles came home with me.
One might not last the night.
That's my idea of a restful day.
What's your perfect rest day?
