I am doing very good right now. I don't have my back brace
anymore. I am able to tie up my shoes alone now !! ;-)
I was doing so well that I decided to take a vacation with
my girlfriend. I just came back from Cuba 2 days ago. I was there for 1 week with an "All inclusive Package" at
a beach resort. It was so relaxing (physically and mentally). Nothing to think about for a week and sitting
on the beach, it can't be bad. ;-)
We were lucky to have 7 days of great weather. The sun was so warm, it
was a good thing it was a little windy near the sea. We rented some mopeds one day and we went into a little
Cuban village to eat some lobster with a Cuban family (in their house). It was pretty cool. They were so nice to us.
Now that I am back in Montréal, I will start training tomorrow. Before
I left I did some in-line skating and I was so happy to be able to skate again. My back still needs a
little bit more flexibility to bend forward for speed skating but it was pretty good. I will try again tomorrow.
I am sure it will be much better after a week in paradise.
