Friday, Apr. 13 - WORKOUTS (not in Azores)!
Good morning, TEAM LIT!
Phew, what an awesome anniversary getaway! Thank you MQ for holding down the fort. I'm sure you all saw the pictures, so I won't talk about how beautiful and unblemished the Azores is. We rented a car and just about explored the entire island of Sao Miguel. We would pick a few hikes per day and explore on foot. We found a few really off the beaten path trails, some of which offered 360 degree views after short ridge line trekking. Sans kids, we slept like 11 hours each night. It was awesome! I ran every day. First day was a disaster, but the subsequent days the illness pulled away at least energy-wise within 2 miles. I only logged 3 miles per day, but that last mile on each morning I finally worked into good form, although my body was still beat from illness. That's what real rest gets me. We had some great cheese, wine, and beef! I couldn't really help but go off my gluten-free diet (doctor's request), so I'm back to square one with that. No regrets. I need to live life too. Sipping Portugese pilsners from hotel balcony overlooking the Atlantic (edit for the Warden's Husband) was very sweet.
Now I am back, and I haven't been able to run a step. That said, I am still hoping to run in the Boston Marathon Tribute run on 4/15 with my Boston EMS buddy.
Geo: Get on it!
2.7 mile walk early this morning.
Great day, friends!
