Monday… Already???

Do I really have to go to work today?  I was on vacation in Aruba all last week, and frankly, thinking of returning to the office is downright upsetting.  Sigh… I think today’s going to be a yoga day.


Another reason today’s a yoga day – new distance PR yesterday morning.  Yeah, I owned all 9.75 of those miles.  The training plan called for 10 miles, and I realized only 9.5 miles fit the 10% rule of running.  Therefore, I respected both by honoring neither.  9.75 sounded good to me.

My belly wasn’t feeling great for the entire run.  That’s probably because I ate nothing but seafood and fruit for the entire week I was on vacation.  The seafood was the kind smothered in butter, cheese, or peanut sauce.  The fruit was the kind served as punch… with rum… lots of rum.

Though I’m sad to be returning to work, I’m at least happy to be home and sharing some pics with you.


Ahhhhh, that was nice.  Have a great Monday!

    I wish I went on vacation to a beach. Though not this weekend since I loved the snow in NYC.

    And you look great! I wish I could look like that in a bikini!

  16. Aruba sounds so amazing right now! Glad you had a nice vacation and an awesome run!! :)

  17. Looks like a fab holiday/vacation!! I love eating fruit and fresh food on beachside holidays (and yes, in drink form is even better!). Congrats on your new distance PR!

    I was really pissed off because I got an email from UTMB saying: “Due to the high demand for places in the above events we have held a draw and we regret to inform you that you have been unsuccessful.” But then I decided that either I would stay in bed feeling sorry for myself or I would go out an join my running group. I choose to go out and of course I felt a lot better after 10k in the snow

  19. Looks like one amazing vacay!! So pretty!!

    And no, my only workout was taking my dog for a walk. A 6 mile run felt so good this morning!!
