casa de la flora

Winter Sun

I have been in Thailand for the past two weeks, eating well, getting some vitamin D and swimming. Lots of swimming. Myself and the boyfriend have been to Khao Lak twice now and love it. It’s super quiet, the hotel is a series of brutalist boxes along the beach with a killer spa and the food is great. 

It’s given me plenty of time to get inspired about the 70.3 in June as it’s coming up to 24 weeks before the gun and I was feeling very lazy after last season. I have almost completely stopped doing any form of exercise before heading out here. I won’t start proper training for a while, as I don’t want to get burnt out but January will be all about getting back on the wagon and looking after myself.

Is it weird that I am looking forward to coming home and kicking off 2014?
