Bam! The Obligatory is officially on vacation. I was surprised that my legs made an appearance on my run yesterday and I was able to get in a decently hard workout. I did 2 mile warmup, 3 mile float 30/1:00 w/ 30 @ mile/1:00 @ 10k, 1 mile cool down. I have also gotten in 1 hour of stairs and one gym session this week but that will probably be it.
I used to always dream about how much running I was going to do on vacation but the miles never seemed to materialize. I have realized that I tend to go into full on bum mode and not do much of anything as my schedule frees up. Oh, there will be fishing, drinking, fraternizing, gorging, sunning and just general all around good times had but probably little running. Maybe things would be different if we were heading to the mountains, but the thought of running aimlessly on mile after mile of pancake flat barrier island... just isn't overly appealing.
