And finally, finally, finally, it’s racecation time. When I registered for ZOOMA Amelia Island, I wasn’t entirely sure it would happen. After all, there are so many variables in today’s world. So I tried to keep it pretty low-key until we were actually in the car and on our way! Join me for the start of the fun!
- Cardio: 3.08 miles
We were exhausted after the band’s triumph the night before. There was nothing much on the calendar and that was just fine by all of us.
- Cardio: 5.87 miles, running + walking
Picture day and work for the kiddo. And it was just a regular day of work for me.
- Cardio: 4.49 miles, walking
I used Tuesday to run errands, tidy up, and deliver earrings.
I also visited a new-to-me mini donut shop thanks to Yelp. It was yum.
- Cardio: 5.07 miles, running + walking
A great run.
It was a quiet morning – sophomores were supposed to take the PSAT, so the rest of the high school students were encouraged to stay home for a virtual day of learning. A did some school work, had lunch with a buddy and then went to work.
- Cardio: 3.72 miles, walking
I went for a walk, but was struggling with horrible allergies. Our new neighbor did some serious tree trimming and it did me in.
I had a hair appointment, that helped boost my spirits.
And then we had an early date night. We were supposed to go to an event, but it got postponed, so we just had dinner instead.
- Cardio: 4.93 miles, running + walking
Heading out on a run definitely helped perk me up, but it was also finally time for our trip!
I got cleaned up and packed, and did some last minute work before Meghan arrived!
We grabbed lunch on the road and made it to Amelia Island by mid-afternoon. Our hotel was a few blocks off the beach, and we were thrilled to stroll over and soak in the salt air. Amazingly, my allergies disappeared.
We picked up our packets at the ZOOMA Ambassador VIP Party, and then grabbed late pizza for dinner. Our weekend was off to a great start.
Back home, the boys had a night of music, with ticket to the St. Augustine Symphony. A early wanted to go and I’m glad his dad could take him.
- Cardio: 1 mile, walking
- Yoga: 1 hour flow
Up super early to head over to Main Beach. ZOOMA was hosting a beach walk and yoga floor and we were here for it.
While we explored Amelia Island, A competed his his second marching band show. This time, they took third in their division, went to finals, and took 5th overall out of 21! They also earned Superiors in Music, Visual Effect, Percussion, Auxillary, and General Effect. Amazing.
For a second year band, first year competing, second competition in school history, this is, apparently, epic). I can’t wait for next weekend.
At the end of the evening, we had dinner at a sports bar so Meghan could watch her football game, and then we turned in. Race day in the morning!
Goal-getting + Thoughts
What a weekend. It’s been so long since I was able to get away for a few days, and I really needed a low-key, race and friend centered break. it was fairly perfect.
This week will be a bit of a slow burn with a big build up to another competition! It’s going to be crazy.
Race report should be coming at you on Monday and I can’t wait to share all about our return to ZOOMA Amelia Island!
How was your week in training?
