But not for long. Lucky and Josh greeted me at the airport on Sunday night. I was so excited to see my boys! This trip was the longest that Josh and I have been apart since before our wedding. Crazy right? That night Josh’s friend Peter and his new girlfriend came over for dinner. They are in town visiting from Minnesota. Once they left I crashed hard. I am so exhausted in every way possible. In fact I’ve had to take a nap every day after work just to get through the rest of the evening.
My training schedule is totally off. I did another hilly run in California on Saturday morning and ran a solid 5 miles on Tuesday night. Luckily it wasn’t too difficult to re-adjust to the altitude though it did slow me down.
California Runs (3 total) Stats:
Distance: 10 miles Time: 1:28:34 Avg. Pace: 8:51 min/miles
Stats (for Tuesday):
Distance: 5 miles Time: 48:02 Avg. Pace: 9:38 min/miles
It’s been a whirlwind since I arrive back in Colorado. Tuesday was my downtime night for the week. Last night we enjoyed yummy food and great company with Ryan and Claire. They were nice enough to make dinner for us. Tonight my FIL Jim will be in town. We’re going to eat at our favorite restaurant in Longmont, Martini’s Bistro. Mmmm…key lime cheesecake. Tomorrow I’m partaking in a little surprise and then Saturday we’re heading to Denver to celebrate Claire’s birthday. Busy busy.
So glad it’s almost time for vacation! We will be on our way to France a week from today. I can almost smell the cheese and taste the wine already.
