I actually ran on vacation!

Not just once. Twice!! I lucked out on my vacation this weekend and stayed at a really nice Hilton in downtown Atlanta. They had a fitness center that was open 24 hours, had headphones for the tvs on each treadmill, and all the towels and ice cold water I could handle. All this with a view of the pool!

My first run was really good. I ran for 40 minutes, and I felt like I could keep going but since I hadn't run in a while like that I decided to stop. It was nice being able to walk comfortably the rest of the day. LOL!!

The second run was not so good. I got calves so tight that I thought about stopping after about 10 minutes of running. Needless to say this run didn't last very long. I'm glad I went, but the treadmill really changes how I run for the worse.

At least I was able to enjoy my eating all weekend without feeling guilty about missing a run. Conversely I am skipping this week's runs until Saturday, but we all need a break right? =)

LMAO I ended up not running after the vacation. Seems a little backwards, huh?
