There's a point in training for the 3 Day when I'm thankful for the weeks or months I have to get ready for all that walking. But once it comes down to just a matter of day, I get a little anxious. My knee is still bothering me but I'm not going to let it stop me at all. I think I'm going to pop by a drug store in the next day or so and pick up a little tenser bandage for extra support. Other than that, I feel ready.
I've spent the last two mornings hiking at Torrey Pines. My favorite trail is called "Broken Hill" and I like to take the southern entrance to it than runs along part of the golf course. Not only does it offer spectacular views of the course, ocean and beach... but it's also tough in all the right ways. The trail winds down, almost to the beach, then it's a great incline with lots of stairs on the way back up. A good workout! The only problem is that by the time I finish and make my way back down the hill to my car - I'm starving! And, for some reason, I always seem to be parked just around the corner from Roberto's. So yes, any calories burned are quickly put back on and I end up feeling like I need a nap. Perfect day!
And, oh yeah, I'm heading up to L.A. tonight because I'm interviewing the cast of the hit CBS show "The Mentalist" tomorrow morning. Yep. Spending the day with Simon Baker. It's going to be tough but I think I'm up for the challenge. And I'd like to thank at the women I work with at KFMB who have offered to be my "assistant" for the day. Is there anyone who doesn't think this guy's gorgeous? It's probably a good thing I got such a good walk in today because the only way I'm going to be able to sleep tonight is if I'm completely exhausted... and there might have to be a glass of red wine involved. But it's going to be a good week... Simon, then the 3 Day. Can't wait!!!
