Easy running around Playacar. Then Heather and I were off to Xplor, a really cool park for exploring the natural caves and underground rivers that are prevalent on the Yucatan peninsula. It also had some sick zip lining!
7/13 Tuesday: 9.1 miles in 66 minutes
Running in Playacar. Felt OK today so I put in a longer run. Still hot....and humid! Spent the day relaxing on the beach!
7/14 Wednesday: 6 miles in 48 minutes
Really feeling sluggish and slow today. The heat and humidity is really taking its toll on me. Spent the day exploring some awesome places today. First stop was the ruins of Tulum, then we were off to Akumal for snorkeling. First we hit Yal-ku lagoon were we saw a Manatee! It was an awesome sight! Next we hit Akumal Bay to swim with sea turtles which was also an awesome experience.
7/15 Thursday: 6.3 miles in 46 minutes
Treadmill day......wanted to be nearby a bathroom. Did 3 miles easy, 2 miles at 5:56 and 1.3 miles easy plus a run to the men's room. Legs are feeling good.....stomach....not so much. Spent the day on the beach and in the pool!
7/16 Friday: 5.1 miles in 40 minutes
My stomach was really feeling pretty bad today. It was one of those runs that I just wanted to get over. Another beach and pool day. Walked into Playa del Carmen for some shopping and after dinner we all took a night time dip in the pool!
7/17 Saturday: 6.1 miles in 49 minutes
Another day of feeling pretty bad. Just got the run done with. Then it was time to head home!
7/18 Sunday: 15.1 miles in 1 hour 49 minutes
It was so nice to be running back on home turf. This weather is so much easier to run in. I felt much better today than I felt on any run while I was in Mexico. Still having some stomach issues though.
Total: 52.8 miles
Overall this wasn't a bad week of running considering I was in a foreign country on vacation and had stomach issues the last 4 days. I wanted to be closer to 60 miles on the week....but I'll take it. Next week its back to some higher mileage!
