Post Vacation State of Zen
Monday, February 28, 2011
After a week in sun-soaked Daytona Beach, you'd think coming home to this dreary Toronto weather would have me in a serious funk. But, honestly? It doesn't. I don't know if I'm still riding a high from such a fab vacation (the perfect combination of running around, doing touristy things & lazing around doing nothing) that I just can't bother to be annoyed with the crap weather and the fact that I'm back at work.
How can you be uptight & irritated when you were able to witness THIS for an entire week?
I even (for the very first time EVER) worked out 3 times during my week away. I've packed gym clothes in the past - but never actually took them out of my suitcase once firmly ensconced in vacation mode. This time, though... TOTALLY took advantage of the fact that I could run along the beach at 8:30am, wearing my summer running gear. How could I not? Would I ever have been kicking myself now, if I'd let that opportunity pass me by (especially since my 10k training begins on Monday... in less than ideal weather conditions - lol.)
How can you not smile when THIS is your running course?
Or when you get to dip your toes post-run?
Or, when you've decided you'd like to give another form of exercise a go... you can swim laps OUTSIDE.
Or you get to witness once-in-a-lifetime events like THIS? (The smile still hasn't faded from my husband's face from this day.)
Not a horrible way to spend a week, right? So it's easy to see why I'm still in such a contented state. Plus? March is almost here! Which means spring is RIGHT around the corner.
Hope everyone has a fantastic week!
