My best friend, Bri, was in town this week, so we were very busy. I picked her up at the airport on Monday and we had a late lunch at Frenchy's Rockaway Grill at Clearwater Beach. I ran 5.49 miles that night. The next day we headed to Disney, starting at Epcot for the Flower & Garden Festival and ending at the Magic Kingdom with dinner at Tony's Town Square Restaurant. I am counting 14 hours of Disney as a substitute for 40 minutes of cross training. ;) We spent the next day at Discovery Cove, swimming and relaxing. I wrongly assumed our hotel would have a gym in which I could do my "Tempo B" workout, but alas they did not. I was going to try to run on the street that night (and even Thursday morning), but I was still exhausted from Disney - I also had the thought that it's not like I sat on a couch all day and watched TV. Friday was her last day here and we were recovering from a raucous Thursday night (not having one of those until the marathon is over!) with a massage and then it was to the airport to see her off. By the time I got home through poor traffic, it was late (and I was still tired). I walked all the way to the gym and turned around - I did not feel like it was going to happen. This morning I ran 8 miles in 80 minutes and it was a little warm, but felt good.
