We are in Virginia Beach on vacation.
I awoke at 4:30 after a lovely seven-hour sleep. For a couple of hours I did some knitting on my Barbara Walker Learn To Knit Afghan Book afghan…I think it is square 51 in the lace section. (Because we are staying a motel room without 1. an easy chair and 2. a lamp by the easy chair, I took a blanket and a couple of pillows and put them in the bathtub and shut the door so I would not awaken Dear One. It worked.)
At 6:30 I decided to take my “stroller” and go for a walk on the Boardwalk to finally get my 5K in. The Boardwalk is a beautiful wide even ground lighted pathway at the edge of the ocean. I was able to watch a glorious sunrise as I walked.
I DID IT!! Even a little more than the required 5K. I am so excited! Of course, my poor benighted feet noticed because the Boardwalk is made of concrete not soft boards, but….still. I was able to do it. Actually at the time there was no problem at all with pain. It was only afterwards when I stopped, sat down and ate a nice-ish breakfast at the motel while visiting with my sister, her husband, and Dear One that I noticed. As the day progressed and we all continued a rather frenetic shopping trip to three thrift shops, and multiple other stops including visits to a couple of lighthouses, that the feet began to feel like raw burger.
Now it is time to go to bed with a happy smile on my face for fulfilling my commitment and the confidence that tomorrow I will arise feeling way better than I do tonight. I do think that I will probably be mostly swimming this week however!
