Back to reality

We had the most incredible week at the cottage. The place was stunning and right on the lake, and we could not have asked for better weather.





Here's a look at how we spent our week:













But alas, the week is over and it's back to the real world. Specifically, back to training for a marathon! It's "Go Time!" as my hubby likes to call it, with just over 5 weeks remaining. My diet of Tostitos, ice cream, s'mores and vodka coolers was fine for a week, but now it's time to focus. The next two weeks are peak training weeks before tapering begins (ALREADY?!?!), starting with a 33K run this Sunday.

I did run every day but one while we were away, but no distance greater than 4K. I had grand expectations of logging a 10K and maybe even a 20, but I was definitely in vacation mode and didn't have the drive. I made sure I followed the road signs...





...sometimes.
