I will be leaving for vacation on Sunday. We are going to Disney for 5 days then on to Boca Raton to spend the weekend with my parents. I debated long and hard about whether I should take my running stuff. In the end, I decided that I'm not going to pack anything related to running. I want to enjoy my time with my family. They have been so supportive of me and my morning runs and my Wednesday night speed sessions. I owe them some quality time. Besides, do I really want to wake up at 5:00 a.m. to run and then spend a full day on my feet at the parks? NO WAY!. I'm going to relax, rest up, and start running again when I get back.
My only concern is that it will be 3 weeks without a long run. The weather gods did not cooperate last Sunday and the next 2 Sundays I will be traveling. I think I'll still be in good shape for the NJ Marathon on May 3rd.
I'll speak to everyone soon.
