I had been wanting to get to Delaware for an exploratory visit; had even been researching towns to check out. When I saw the weather for this week, somehow I sweet-talked a reluctant Mr. Judy into the trip. We booked the AirBnB late Saturday, and left early Tuesday.

Monday Intention: a little speed
Which turned out to be a rolling hills run. It was a Peloton treadmill run billed as endurance, but really it was hills. I didn’t do all of the hills at the end, and I’m glad — my IT Band felt it the next day. Plus we had 6 hours in the car on Tuesday. I tried to run 3.14 to honor Kim @ Kimrunsonthefly (how exactly do you get to 3.14 on a treadmill?).
Wednesday Intention: easy does it
We went to a park, which charged an entrance fee. I ran and Mr. Judy tried to walk Bandit, but Bandit wasn’t having it. Traveling makes him nervous and he apparently didn’t want to stray to far from the car in case I showed up.
This was a nice path, with a somewhat long bridge over some wetlands — but nothing really that amazing. So that was my $10 run.
Sunday Intention: short & easy but . . .
That’s not what happened. I went to bed feeling a little tired, which is understandable — and then woke up with a fever somewhere around midnight. Almost as if I’d gotten another booster! There were truly no signs that I was getting sick. I took some ibuprofen, and while I’m still tired this morning and not very hungry, I feel better. So weird. COVID test was negative. So no run for me today, just rest.
Favorites of the week
We made the most of our time in Delaware! Unfortunately two days were almost completely lost to driving (especially as we ran in to heavy traffic on the way home, partially my doing but I don’t really think I would change anything — although I was not the one driving through that). Another day was rainy almost all day, but that allowed us to catch our breath and relax.
We visited three different towns, I ran in DE, walked along the ocean, and walked along a Riverwalk. We got to see a Blue Heron as we walked along the riverwalk. We had a lot of really good eats (outside). I bought some new crystals and a bracelet. I sat outside reading for a long time on Wednesday. We never had to wear a mask either (some people still did, but not too many). Life felt almost normal for a change. We packed a lot into basically two days!
Bandit, who gets randomly carsick — like really random — did quite well. He was fine on the 6 hour drive down (with multiple stops so we could all stretch our legs). He did throw up just a bit on the way back, but it wasn’t that bad. Mostly he snoozed in the car. He seemed unimpressed with the ocean. He absolutely loved the bed (which was saggy so the humans weren’t quite as fond of it) and went in there all the time, which is weird, since at home he’s only on the bed when one of us is.
We could tell he was a bit anxious though. He wasn’t as interested in his food as normal (but always up for a treat). He slept on top of the covers instead of underneath. I think that when he’s anxious about something, he won’t sleep under the covers because he’s on alert. When I’m gone, for instance, he usually won’t get under the covers. All in all he did quite well, but is very happy to be back home and back in his normal routine.
Except . . . I ended up trying to sleep (there wasn’t much last night) on the couch, because what if it was COVID? We had the party with my mom, and also stopped in Jersey to spend some time with some of Mr. Judy’s family. Usually if I get up he comes out — only he didn’t. Also didn’t want to eat breakfast. He’s back to his nursing duties this morning, though, while I relaxed reading in bed for a while after Mr. Judy got up.
ICYMI: Make your own Spring Equinox retreat with the tips vlog, Yin Yoga practice, and meditation I have for you today. Happy Spring!
Coming up on Tuesday & Friday: Tuesday I have no idea yet. Obviously I didn’t post the treadmill review last week. I don’t think it’s going to happen this Tuesday either. On Friday it’s time to runfess with Marcia @ Marcias Healthy Slice.
I admit to LOL a bit at all the well wishes for a getaway this Spring, which I read while we were in DE. 🙂
