Some much needed R&R

Posted Aug 21 2012 10:17pm

Howdy from the beach! Chris and I are enjoying  some much needed R&R this week and waking up to this view certainly sweetens the deal.

We drove all day Saturday to get here, so a long run (16 miles this week) on Sunday was out of the question. Instead, I woke up before sunrise on Monday to get in a solid training run. After a few lackluster weeks of training, I was excited to do my longest training run this year. I can’t believe the NYC marathon is a little more than 10 weeks away!

Waking up before sunrise on vacation wasn’t exactly fun, but I was rewarded by some lovely views and what turned out to be the last bit of sunshine of the day.

The run was great minus a few glitches (I forgot my shot blocks, my compression sleeves, etc. – evidently my brain is on vacation.) We picked an off-the beaten path vacation spot and lucked out that it has endless miles of walking/running/biking trails. I was able to run on the trail for 14 miles of my run. Even more awesome, I was able to keep within my training paces for the 16 miles. It was one of those “restore your faith in running” runs.

We finally got some sunshine today and are hoping for some more tomorrow. Chester is here with us and is thoroughly enjoying playing in the waves and the sand. It’s fun watching his excitement over the beach. He is even letting us take ridiculous pictures of him.

the life of a dog is so hard.

Hope everyone is having a good week thus far!
