Alas, our summer travel is winding down, but we went out in style. Flying into St Thomas for the weekend was a total whirlwind. A marvelous, relaxing, blur. I absolutely did not want to leave. The island is tropical meets mountainous, and the views were indescribable. Our hotel had free snorkeling gear and free fish to find. We definitely spent the majority of the weekend in the water. Weather was perfect and I truly did not want to come back to reality. Anyone else have those moments on a vacation where you realize you could be happy running the jet-ski rental stand on a beach?
Something about the ocean revives you. Andrew said it was the best day and a half honeymoon. Aww…gross, I know.
Training resumed at it’s regularly scheduled time this morning. I missed my long run, rightfully so. I also missed the notice that my gym was CLOSED today. Nothing like a 40 min round-trip ride at 5AM to put you in a fantastic mood. I stayed focused and still tackled my training. To make up for missing Saturday’s long run, I did the 6-er this morning. Went a little over and will attempt to throw in the remaining 1.3 miles this evening to put me back on track for Monday. Warning – this is probably not the brightest idea, but I will do it if my body gives me the green light. And holy best watch ever Batman. Cannot say enough good things about the Garmin Forerunner 305. You don’t realize the pace you’re keeping and this little watch is a fantastic remainder to move. This puppy doesn’t lie either, so if you are going to legitimately make an effort to hit a pace or distance, Garmin will call your bluff.
How was everyone’s weekend?! If you could have any job on the beach, what would it be?
