I have had five days off from running, though interjected a few days of hiking instead. My second week of vacation was spent recuperating from constant activity (cleaning, cooking, stocking food, entertaining, etc. an extra five people in our household!)–this was all good for the most part. But when it was all over, I sat down and could hardly get back up. The last day our company was here, we hiked around Buntzen Lake, and lo and behold, it was the first cool day after weeks, and we were suddenly exposed to a drenching, sweet rain that fell upon our tired, brown, and dry bodies.
