Can you train hard while on vacation?

When you think of summer vacation, do you think marathon training? Some may, some may not, but for me when I visit my mom in Texas I think....more running time outside!!!

It isn't as easy as it seems and ironically getting those runs in can be a struggle so how did I do this summer?

On vacation I ran a total of 141.62 miles with an average of 6.16 miles per day or 43.12 miles per week. When you compare this to my June training average of 4.83 miles a day or 33.83 miles per week, I call my summer vacation training a success!

But it wasn't necessarily easy, I had some double or even triple run days and had to squeeze in runs between other family activities and pool fun time. I ran multiple double digit days and my longest run was 16.2 miles. I ran home after 10.2 miles to refill my CamelBak and check-in on the family and went back out running. Those final 6 miles were tough after the short reprieve in air conditioning while the summer heat increased and the heat index in Texas was brutal.

But I loved every minute of it and always will. There is something magical about running in Texas, the land that I grew up in. I wouldn't trade it for the world!
