Wow, vacation week one gone by already. We spent last weekend in Paris then left Monday for the South Eastern part of France, Basque country. We were quite busy and did something each day , but I managed to get in a lot of exercise. Luckily because we ate out way too much for my taste.
Sunday : 15 km long run in my usually stomping grounds
Tuesday : 6,5 km around a cousin’s home near Agen. Lots of hills. Broke in my second pair of running shoes.
Wednesday : 6,5 km in the small coastal town where we were staying
Friday : 12 km run along the coast in St. Jean de Luz. I ran further but since my watch died as I was heading home, not sure what final distance was. #runnerproblems
I felt really good about getting in four runs. I am hoping it offset some of the (over)eating I did. Here is just some of what I ate.
For an appetizer, my husband’s cousin is cutting a ham that he had prepared with special spices :
Tapas in St. Sebatian, Spain.
Basque cake (regional specialty) :
Veal axoa (pronounced a-o-sho-a), which is minced veal cooked with peppers and local spices :
Monk fish :
We arrived in Arcachon yesterday (about 45 minutes south of Bordeaux) where we will be spending the next 2 weeks, relaxing, visiting with family, running ! and eating a home made meals, as we have rented a house and are no longer in a hotel.
Did you have a good weekend ? What is on your running agenda ?
