I ran on vacation.

Monday, July 22, 2013

I ran 2.5 miles with my daughters. I'll admit their pace is much slower than mine. In fact, my oldest told me that I was running "race pace" when we first started. I slowed down and kept pace with her until the end, when I sprinted to our starting point.

My IT band is complaining a bit, but it's not too bad. I'll take tomorrow off from running and then run "my pace" on Wednesday. I'm thinking running on the dirt road isn't a good idea, but I may try it again, just to see.

We had a nice warm up walk and cool down walk. I did some push ups, diamond push ups and some tricep dips to finish out the morning. I'll do abs, burpees and squats with the girls later tonight.

It's a good day!

    Vacation is a time to do what you love... and you love to run. Just be careful with that IT band! I would think the dirt road would make for softer landings than asphalt, but you have to go a little slower to be careful to land each footfall properly on the uneven surfaces. Good luck and happy running! emoticon
