The mini vacay is over.

I’m baaaaaaaaaaaack. The mini vacay is over. *sigh That’s okay though because we’re going back in about 10 days! Nice. I’m spoiled, I know.

I did manage to get a few runs in while on vacation. Saturday I ran 9 miles on the Legacy Trail and Sunday, I ran 5 miles on the Venetian Parkway Trail. I would have run more but well, we had some very important things to do:

boating in Venice

You know they’re totally saying, ‘Mom, can we jump in yet?’ because 5 seconds after I said, do you wanna go swimming, they were already across the Bay. Gotta love em.

I was really looking forward to riding my paddleboard but every time I turned around MacGyver was jackin it:

My husband is a paddleboard thief, really. Guard yours if he is in the vicinity.

We went to dinner Saturday night. For some reason I was craving Applebee’s so that’s where we went.

Dinner at Applebee's

Somebody needs a hair salon stat! Got any ideas? I’m clueless when it comes to my hair.

Our waiter reminded me of this guy:

Sunday, it was back to the boat. Hank absolutely loves to fish with daddy:

Dachshund who fishes

He’s trying to score some bait fish and I believe he scored around 3 before the day was over.

Boomer just watches me fish until I catch one and then he tries to eat it off the line:

The kid even made an appearance this weekend. He was in Bradenton for a movie on Saturday so he went to Bentley’s in Nokomis afterward and brought me and MacGyver some of the best calories ever! We love Bentley’s and we go there way more than we should but if you are ever in the Venice, Florida area, more specifically, Nokomis, check them out. You will think you have died and gone to ice cream heaven.

We left a little early on Sunday because Hank wasn’t feeling too well. (Probably from all the bait fish he stole.)

I got up this morning and ran a quick 3.1 on the treadmill. I ran the first mile in 8.5 minutes but I couldn’t hold that pace for the next 2.1 so I slowed it down and finished in 28:09. I either take Mondays off or I do a short run on Monday and Tuesday. Since it’s been so hot, I’m running shorter distances but doing so more often. It works for me but I also play it safe and if I feel I need to rest, I do.

So, that was my quick recap of the weekend, what did you do this weekend?

Do you take mini vacay’s? How often?
