Today it’s back to work and back to normal. No more travelling around Ireland, driving on the other side of the road, pints (lots of pints), and sightseeing. As much as I love to travel, it’s so nice to return home and get back to your old routine.
The past week and a half were much needed in terms of running. It forced me to take a physical break and, as a result, my legs feel amazingly refreshed. More importantly, I needed a mental break. Sounds cheesy but I feel renewed and very eager to start training again on Monday. I’m dying to jump back into it and plan on working harder than I ever have before.
Coming home was easy knowing this black furball was waiting for us…
My two favorite parts of vacation: getting there and getting home. 🙂
Great first run back!
I know what you mean, getting back home can feel so nice sometimes!! Plus yr pup is adorable and I would be missing him too!
I usually force myself to take a complete week off of running, and then two weeks off of “official” training, where I just run what/when I want to. I think the mental and physical break is a good thing and recharges the mind and body. Can’t wait to track your progress on your next training cycle!
