More Rest

Yesterday it was another pool day. 

For me my pool time was delayed until after a trip to Garda to buy provisions. There is a shuttle from the Hotel to town but yesterday there seemed to be some kind of Exodus going on and the queue was 30 deep. I opted to walk. 

Actually it was not a bad trek down, a little warm but I was blessed with a gentle breeze. Food purchased and it was time to get the shuttle back. I clambered on with my bags and the driver turned to me said five minutes and left with his paper. There I was parked on a busy road, part on the path, with buses negotiating around me! Italian style the five minutes was long, by the time the driver returned the mini bus was full. He sauntered over, took out a sweet, unwrapped it and placed it in his mouth. At this point I was melting in to the seat and wanted to shout “for goodness sake man -drive!” But I didn’t! 

Let me tell you that pool was bliss when I finally got in it!

Sunbathe, swim, read, shade, swim, drink, repeat several times!

The rest day was needed, it is getting warmer. 

About shazruns

I have been running since 2004 when I decided to do the Race for Life, as a close friend was terminally ill with cancer. Following that I did a couple of 10km at Leeds castle and Sandringham. Then in 2005 ran my first London marathon, then another in 2007 in blistering temperatures. I have entered the London marathon every year since but have been rejected, am now find maintaining my fitness & motivation hard, so when the email came through about Janathon I thought why not! Am hoping this helps with fitness, motivation and weight loss!! Wish me luck!
