"Kids Suite" in our hotel room
Enjoying the Hotel's mini-Waterpark
We got up at 4:30 AM for the 7:00 AM race on Saturday. The kids were groggy, but accepted it and know that there is usually a fun park as our final destination! My teenage sister is not use to getting up before 10:00 on the weekends, but was up applying her makeup before our alarm went off! We had a few other friends racing, so there were plenty of friends (and other kids to play with!) to keep us company during the long wait at the park. Hubby was happy with his swim and run, but not happy with his performance on the bike. He still finished within his goal of going sub-6 hours.
in sub-6 hours
YES ... That's a BONDI BAND!!!!
We got back to the resort and the kids and hubby vegged out in the hotel room. Little Diva Sister and I went to the hotel gym for a quick thirty minute workout. It felt really good to mix things up a bit and work out in different surroundings and to work out with my sister while watching trashy reality tv. We enjoyed the water park some more and chilled out in the hotel room.
No nap for us ...
We hit the hotel gym
Sisterly after workout glow
We were going to workout again on Sunday, but I got lazy. We enjoyed the hot continental breakfast, packed up and headed home. I unpacked and did laundry. Hubby wanted to see Toy Story 3. Knowing that Little Dude wouldn't last long at the movie, he ended up taking Little Diva. I took Little Diva Sister and Little Dude out for lunch and to the mall. We headed home for some water time in the sprinkler, grilled out and roasted smores over our firepit.
I KNOW that I could have fit in a another run again this weekend. But, I didn't. And, I really didn't want to. So, I'm not beating myself up about it. There is always tomorrow ... and the next day ... and the day after that. I enjoyed myself, my time with my family and I enjoyed not running for the day. Marathon training will be kicking off next weekend and I will have PLENTY of time out on the road.
I still am on target for another 100+ mile month. Not to shabby. I am totally reaching my 1,400 mileage goal for 2010.
