After a lot of travel yesterday I finally made it to my parents house at 2am this morning. Yikes. But SO happy to be in Florida at the parents for Christmas. And for warm weather, obviously.
I left work (after sneaking in a 30 minute lifting session in the gym, shhhh) at 4:30 yesterday...so do the math, not arriving at the house until 2am = a LONG day/night.
I woke up as per usual at 6am on my own but then turned over and went back to sleep. I did the same thing when I woke up again at 8; and finally wandered out of bed at 10:30. It was glorious. I cannot recall the last time that I stayed in bed that late actually sleeping! I usually feel too guilty with all the things I can be doing to stay in bed.
So I got up, drank some coffee, enjoyed some sunshine and pretty much went back to read/nap an hour later.
|Merry Christmas to me. Thank you snowbird parents.|
|Fine, take my picture. I know I'm adorable.|
|I have missed my little Lucio so much! Best puppy ever.|
And workout I did. Marathon training called for 5 miles at marathon pace (I am going aiming for 9:30 for the marathon...or something like that I am hoping I can pace faster). But it was so beautiful I couldn't help myself, I just went for it.
|Oops? Let's hope this doesn't come back to bite me in the ass during 20 tomorrow...|
|Oh winter how I do not miss you.|
|Love. Happiness. Sunshine.|
So now I have homemade pizza and Christmas movies with the fam before getting to bed early to rise for a fun LONG run of 20 miles tomorrow! And then doing a whole lot of nothing but lounging around. Between marathon training and working OT each week at work, I am obviously just a bit run down. These few days away from home came just in the nick of time and are just what the doctor ordered!
