The first day of vacation.  I still had to go into work for a few minutes to take care of a potential schedule conflict a couple of weeks down the road.  Everything seems to be ok for now.  Trouble averted.

Ran two laps around El Estero park.  I just felt lighter when I started out.  It could have been my mind playing tricks on me but my legs did not feel like lead.  I felt really good.  Picked up the pace just a little on the second lap and even managed to catch the traffic lights in my favor.  It was a good way to start the week.

Got out the door at 0430.  There was nobody out on the trail but me and one cyclist and a skunk.  The skunk laid claim to the middle of the trail.  He heard me coming and lifted his tail.  I stopped and considered my options very carefully.  I just made sure there was no oncoming traffic and then gave him a really wide berth.  I think he was following me because I ran into him again on the way back and gave him that extra wide berth again because his tail was up.

Ran the fast University route.  (55:24)

2 sets: 20 pu, 30 su, 20 squats (Just ran out of time to do more.)

It is rather unbelievable that I am feeling so good this week.  I guess rest and relaxation really is good for the soul every now and then.  I have enjoyed the past two days watching my girls play with each other and just run around and laugh.  I have also been exposed to all the fighting and crying, but just having the opportunity to observe them and interact with them is all I can ask for.

Hit the turkey trot route today and followed that up with four 30 second sprints.  The first sprint seemed kind of long as I tried to gauge how much distance I could actually cover.  I thought I was faster than I truly am.  The last three were awesome as I simply tried to cover more distance than I had in the previous sprint.  It would be no surprise that I covered the shortest distance in my first sprint.

Woke up in the middle of the night for no reason and should've just gotten up and went running.  Instead, I read a little about sports and then went back to bed and overslept.  I woke up at the same time as my little girl and that was that.  Got a couple sprints in chasing my oldest around the building but that was it.

Took the trail all the way down to Seaside Beach.  The twists and curves make the trail a little longer.  Took the beach all the way back to the wharf then turned for home.  Love running on the beach near the water with no worries about traffic.  Weather was overcast with a hint of fog.  Perfect for running.
