Because I was on a business networking trip in Cuba last week I could not post. Nor could I get much done in terms of triathlon training. However, I did do some creative forms of exercise such as:
- I exercised my right to drink mojitos... among other beverages.
- I danced—A LOT.
- I walked—MUCHO A LOT.
- I thought MUCHO TIEMPOS A LOT about how great it would be to swim, bike or run.
Also during my hiatus I spoke with my financial advisor and he said something that struck me. The conversation went as follows:
Me: "So, what do you think I should do about my current financial situation?"
My financial advisor: "I think we need to re-calibrate."
The word re-calibrate echoed in my mind—for several reasons—and I found the more I said "re-calibrate, Becca" the more these words became my inspirational mantra.
Traveling around Havana and witnessing the undeniable industrious spirit that permeated from every edifice, side street, and face furthered the power of my new motto. I realized everyone has the ability to re-calibrate—even despite amazing odds.
I have returned from Cuba and though I'm slightly less in shape and suffering from the effects of trying to dance in high heels like a Cuban for countless good music fueled hours I'm optimistic about re-calibrating and kicking Week 6's butt. Viva Cuba and viva training!
