Victoria Vacation and Gearing Up For Marathon

Okay, sothis week being on the island (Vancouver Island, SO BEAUTIFUL!), I was keeping in plan with my training that I would step back slightly for recoup reasons.  I ran 24 km yesterday instead of beyond 30 (20 miles) for my longer run and all week has been shy of my usual 10 km treks.  
This week I will amp it up again to the beyond 30's and continue until taper time.
Rest, Relaxation and Restoration.  I felt all three this week as I spent time with my wife, three kids and good friends of ours and their kids.  Out every morning early with my buddy not for a run(which happened later in the day) but to Starbucks for Java and quiet coffee time.  It was too great.  Lots of hiking and exploring the ocean shores of Victoria  and surrounding area.
