I was too tired to post at all for the past couple of days. I *thought* I was in decent shape before taking this class, in fact I’d even added gym time with cardio (which I never do) in the month before we left. But that doesn’t change the fact that my legs are absolutely trashed. Yesterday we did starts and races, racing on one boat against our instructor from the first two days in another boat. We’ve gotten really good wind every day, but yesterday, once the boat was super wet with slippery saltwater, the combination of that and my physical exhaustion had me slipping all over the cockpit. I still had fun, but it was frustrating too.
Elliott was all happy because hanging out having margaritas we ran into a man who used to windsurf in the Hood River area back when he did it. Windsurfers are an interesting lot, because from what little I can deduce it was the best high they ever had and they are all still trying to find a replacement combination of wind and water that feels that way. They’re like junkies. :)
Anyhow, I was just trying to get a tiny post in before we’re out on the water again for the day. We’ve been so tired at night, it’s just been shower, nap, dinner, bed. The bad part is we’ve had NO time and energy for any yummy vacation sex. *sigh* But hey, we do have a 3day weekend without anything exerting to do. Well, other than find souvenirs for family and friends back home. Vanilla has been a popular request.
Hopefully more with pictures and stuff over the next few days….
