This weeks goals will be different as they will be arranged around my vacation schedule. I added a 5th week to this plan just for the sake of having the two coincide. The advantage of merging my vacation and my recovery week stems from the realization that I will be doing allot of nontraditional cross training activities this week, like snorkeling and sightseeing. My vacation will consist of a five day cruise to the Caribbean on-board the Carnival Destiny. This will be the first time I go on vacation and still get some regular exercise in as I plan to do some running on the cruse ships track which is the highest point on the ship. I have posts planned for everyday of this week so that will continue like normal. A few activities that I am looking forward to trying including ocean open water swimming and snorkeling as well as possibly some island trail running on a port of call or two. Overall I am looking forward to spending some quality time with the wife as well as get in some rest and relaxation before returning to the training grind.
Week 29 Goals: Bahama Style
- Get 2 runs – at least one on the ship track
- Open water swim in the ocean

Most of this week is a take it as it goes week. I want to get a run or two in so my legs are ready for the start of the next phase of my training, but I am not going to stress too much. One interesting thing about this trip is that it is the first I will have taken since quitting nicotine and smoking, so for the first time, no pictures with me holding a cigarette! Check back daily as I plan to still post. Just know that I will be enjoying myself in the sun and surf this week and might not reply to comments. Til next time.
