Vacation running... have to love it. I am in Florida at my dads now. This week was running less miles than planned, but after running each morning we walked around Universal Orlando (Studios and Islands of Adventure) all day so I am thinking that has to count and some sort of relaxed cross training after all those miles (I actually was going to be a geek for awhile and wear my Garmin to see how many miles the park is, but disapproving looks from the teenager made me stop - but she loved when I wore my orange shoes in the park). 

As far as a vacation site, the theme parks were amazing. My only real complaint is how much you pay up front and yet then continue to nickel and dime you. I mean pay for parking at the hotel after the rooms were how much!!??! They had a great 'gym'... oh wait, that cost more too.... luckily I planned on running outside so it would (and was) hot. Anyway, let me get off the money side of vaca, because the parks were simply the best I've been too. I am a thrill ride junky anyway so coasters were a blast, but the themes and effort they put into these areas I would recommend to anyone - so so fun.  We are HP fans so the Hogwarts castle, themes, pumpkin juice and butter beer were nice and yummy. I could go on for hours on different aspects of details or shows, again it was amazing, 

Now at dads, he lives on the gulf side and he spent an hour explaining to me why it is so humid in Florida now. That's what dads do. Over all my legs are still somewhat sore,  and even though the taper has stated and I am down miles, I think the rest will serve me well. 80/90% today. It will be hot and humid for the near future so when I get back it should feel like great running weather.

I have to be careful for what I ask for! I wanted to finish my training/taper while on vaca and wanted some brutal weather to run in. Well I got it. 81/93%- hot. Sun rose and I wanted to remind my legs of what we will be doing so I ran 4 miles at the hottest part sub MGP (7:09ish/mile). Good run, but I was SOAKED- pool time, college football and beach on the menu... don't you just love vaca? I plan on some beach miles for fun, not really for training :)
