I’m back again! From the land of family, food and air conditioning.
Jason and I were in Pensacola, Florida since last Friday visiting his family. It was a nice break from the real world, as all vacations are. And we didn’t do much besides eat, sleep, read and watch television. Just to be clear – this is exactly my ideal vacation. “What about sight seeing?” you say. No. I’m not into that.
Did I mention we ate? Oh boy did we eat. Pizza, cake, bacon, cookies, danish, more pizza, pumpkin pie, ice cream, hamburgers, french fries, milk shakes, more pie, and more ice cream. Among other things. Then I topped it off with an entire Chipotle burrito bowl on the way home from the airport yesterday that I’m still digesting. As pleasurable as it was, my body was definitely ready to get back into the swing of things today.
The good news is I was able to squeeze in my long run (9 miles) Thursday night before we flew out. And it felt great! I realized that I really like running at night. I might call this time of day evening during the summer when the sun stays out longer. But at this stage of the year, it’s definitely night. And I have decided. Running at night is far better than running in the evening. Even if the time on the clock is the same. Only bummer is not being able to see (eh, details).
I was also able to squeeze in a run (6 miles) in Florida and make it back in time for yoga yesterday.
