No worries…not the hospital type of check out but the hotel type and even better off the grid type. One benefit, that is not taken enough of, of having you in-laws in town is the ability to hand off he kids and disappear and that’s exactly what my wife and I did this weekend. After an excruciatingly long week for us both we checked into a local hotel for a weekend stay-cation, we did briefly entertain thoughts of driving to Mammoth but a 4-5 hour one way drive somewhat defeated the objective of the weekend.
So Friday night we checked in and Sunday afternoon we checked out, interspersed with two solid nights uninterrupted, non alarmed night sleep, a massage, some more massage, some else doing the cooking, breakfast and in fact lunch in bed. The big black bags under my eyes have receded to a pale shade of grey and that ‘I am so freekin’ tired I have developed an eye twitch’ has gone.
I nixxed my long run and will be back in the groove tomorrow. After an month of trying to get it done in the mornings I have concluded that it’s not quite working out so I am shuffling things around and will be trying to get some sessions done at lunch time at the gym next door to my office, if nothing else fails I can use their showers and hot the foothill roads…we’ll see how it works out?
Oh an I am all signed up for next weekend so if you at the PCTR Sycamore Canyon come and say hello. I am only running the 30k, my legs don’t have 50k in them yet, but this is my first ever 30k race so a PR is in the bag!
