Mixed Plate...

In Hawaii mixed plate is the easy way of saying, "A little bit of everything", because truly when you eat plate lunch style you really do get all sorts of this & that in all kinds of ways depending on where your plate was made. Today, after my ride (which thankfully went really good-put it in the bank!), I was grounded. I had to totally mello out, relax, unwind, lay, rest, sleep, recover, do nothing. I hit up the doc for a visit, (only one more to go), got my fix and with coaches orders "chill out".
On the way home I dropped into Ceviche Dave's and wouldn't you guess...the best salad on the island was the coolest mixed plate EVER!!! It was the "He make me crazy" salad (that's fish, greens, and lilikoi), and a bikini on the side! How incredibly cool is that!? Talk about my lucky day. Not only does the salad name fit my life the bikini was totally what I needed while I was losing my cool with this dreaded doctor stuff.
It's a rainy, BEAUTIFUL rainy evening here on the island. Love these nights, they calm life down so easily for me. Leaving for IM Kentucky Monday, so that means I'd generally start packing Sunday-Monday at the latest. Since Im grounded I started tonight. Small kine stuff, like clothes. The bike, run, and swim stuff still have some use around here :)
My other big time activity while doing my best to get race ready is filling the IPOD for the flight across the Pacific & the mainland. Ooooooh my mix is a good one. A bunch of local bands just released new tunes so I'm already feeling pumped with their excited! That's all I got for now... hope your week is awesome!

I'm confused - the bikini comes with the food?

Safe flight Monday!
