I have been on vacation, from work and from running. Last week, John and I were in Paris. It was fantastic! We walked everywhere, and had a great time. I didn't run at all, and appreicated not bringing all my running stuff with me on the trip (though it would have fit in the suitcase).
The week before I also took off from running, since it was the week after the Napa Marathon. All I did that week was spin.
I am going on three weeks of no running. 17 days to be exact. I don't have plans to run until Sunday, when we'll go to the Fleet Feet run. I think three weeks is a good amount of time to rest after the marathon. I hope the vacation doesn't make it too difficult to start up again!
