Annnnnnd we’re back. Despite the imminent threat that Florence might cancel our OBX vacation, we enjoyed a miracle of an easy trip down with minimal flooding, no damage to the house, and lovely weather. I hung out on the beach, did some reading, played some cornhole, drank some beer, and of course – ran!
Mega workout log since we were off last week:
Sunday, September 9 | ran 13.1 miles in 2:03 in the Parks Half Marathon; ran an additional 4.04 miles home from the finish line
Monday, September 10 | 55 minute ballet class
I was hella busy at work and suddenly my knee was hurting??? So I skipped my usual walk.
Tuesday, September 11 | walked 2.33 miles outside in 40 minutes
Wednesday, September 12 | walked 2.25 miles outside in 40 minutes
Thursday, September 13 | ran 5.24 miles outside in 55 minutes; 55 minute ballet class
My knee wasn’t quite 100% but I couldn’t take it anymore. I taped it up and set out. Weirdly enough it felt pretty okay while running but twinged while walking.
Friday, September 14 | ran 5.15 miles outside in 55 minutes
Saturday, September 15 | rest
Spent a lot of time agonizing over whether we were leaving for our OBX vacation. Thanks to the hurricane, signs pointed to no.
Sunday, September 16 | rest
Surprise! The island was open to visitors! Having written our vacation off as cancelled, we spent the day scrambling to pack.
Monday, September 17 | rest
We drove down to OBX veeeeeery early and my knee was still bugging me just a bit, so I took the day to chill.
Tuesday, September 18 | ran 3.19 miles outside in 30 minutes
Knee felt good! I should really try resting my injuries more often. >D I love running at the beach – it tends to be flat and fast. (The road, that is – I have other thoughts on running directly on the beach.)
Wednesday, September 19 | ran 3.14 miles outside in 30 minutes
Thursday, September 20 | ran 3.19 miles outside in 30 minutes
Friday, September 21 | ran 3.15 miles outside in 30 minutes
Saturday, September 22 | ran 3.68 miles outside in 35 minutes
I decided to run an extra 5 minutes to make it 16 miles for the week, and somehow it turned into my best run out of all of ’em. Go figure.
So that’s what I did on my summer vacation. Next break I’ll be on my way to Wal – no, wait. I’m going to Houston next month. But after THAT, it’s time to hit up Walt Disney World, baby!
