I love waking up in the mornings during summer and just hitting the pavement! It’s peaceful, warm, usually a beautiful sunrise to watch, and the best way to wake up and start your day. I usually prepare a pot of the coffee the night before and set the timer, so that by the time I wake up, brush my teeth, and make my bed, the coffee is done and the kitchen smells delicious. Coffee, music, and water and I’m ready to ROCK. Early morning runs are usually the ones that I just go, because I’m usually still half asleep and I don’t have time to think about it, which I love. Sometimes the mileage is planned, but when I’m on vacation or in Nantucket (like I am now), I kind of just go freely and see where it takes me. Running while on vacation is FUN.
Yes I workout and run while on vacation, because I enjoy it, it makes me feel good, and after a night of dining out and possibly too many cocktails, it nice to just sweat it out and reboot! I will do it first thing in the morning and then have the rest of the day to lounge around, relax, read, and soak up the sun. I don’t train as hard as I usually do, but I like to remain active, whether it’s running, walking, or casually swimming I like to move! Plus it’s a great way to explore new places and meet new people.
Friday was a early morning and a long day! Up at 6:00 AM, I trained 3 clients in a row and then hit the road with Kala to head up to Nantucket. 4 1/2 hour drive + 1 hour ferry ride and we finally made it on the island at 6:00 PM. We hit the beach for a evening swim, threw some dinner together, and then called it a night. Kala was already snoring at 9:00 PM.
As I sit on our deck this Saturday morning, while sipping coffee, and watching the sun start to peek out of the clouds, it’s time for me to fuel up with some breakfast and hit the pavement and enjoy a morning run on beautiful Nantucket Island. Have a beautiful day and enjoy the weekend!
