Scott's Activity Log​ - WEEK 41

12/7/2013

Location: Grand Mayan Palace - Riviera Maya, Mexico (Outdoors)

 

Holy Schmoley, talk about a radical departure from the last few weeks!  I'm currently in sunny Mexico, and was able to work in my first run while on vacation.  It is in the low 80's here, but it is EXTREMELY humid!  Between the humidity and running on solid ground (rather than the treadmill) for the first time in a long time, my pace wasn't so great.  But I couldn't be happier about the run!  It's so nice to be outside enjoying the fresh air again!  I logged 7.06 actual-terrain-miles, bringing my total to 759.02.  My target pace is 772.60, so I definitely have my work cut out for me!  Seems like a great place to make up for lost miles! 
[On a separate note... today is my 20th anniversary with my loving partner.  I love you, David!]

Another beautiful but muggy day here in Mexico!  I worked in another 6.87 miles today, although I have to admit it wasn't easy.  My calve and quads were extra tight running on solid ground again, and the humidity definitely takes its toll.  With that said, I raised my total to 765.89, and it feels good to be within 10 miles of my 775.34 target pace.  Oh yeah... and did I mention I'm in PARADISE?!  Nothing to complain about here!

I could get use to this!  While it was yet another very muggy and warm day, I just love being able to run outside again - especially with such beautiful scenery!  On the path I run, I encounter everything from iguanas, to exotic birds, to squirrels, to mexican coatis (kind of like skinny raccoons).  It's really kind of neat!  Anyway, amidst the exotic wildlife, I racked up another 7.06 miles, bringing my total to 772.95.  With a target of 780.82, I'm closing in on an 8 mile gap!  I hope to work in at least one more run before heading back home, but I'm not sure if it will happen given some sight-seeing goals and a little bit of inclement weather heading our way.  We'll see...
