It was well worth it, though! Biking around the Angkor temples was magical.
It was also hot. So I really enjoyed my other form of exercise – swimming. My hotel had a lovely pool which I used every day. After sweating all day in upper-90 humid weather, it was great to come back and swim.
There was also some wading through rice paddies and tromping through forests in search of birds on a couple of birding trips.
I have no problem taking a little time off from training, but I’ve gotten used to choosing active, healthier choices for my life whenever possible. It’s just become habit. If I have a choice between riding in a taxi or biking or walking, I’ll make the active choice. It might not get me ready for a race, but it can help keep me healthy.
And if I run out of other things, there are always more stairs.
