Sometimes you just have to take a break from training. Life is about balance. If you train all the time and never have time for socialization, you become a wild animal that cannot play nice with others. If you socialize all the time, you become soft and cannot keep up with your active friends. Even with training for an ironman, you need to take time for yourself and those closest to you.
We had a much needed date night this weekend. I’m talking nice clothes and makeup (for me, Danny just did the nice clothes part). We headed out to Restaurant IRON which is one of my favorite swanky places to dine. We had some amazing food – as always. Salivate on these!
We followed up our dinner with a walk down Palafox on Gallery Night. I’ve learned that Gallery Night in Pensacola means more of “yay we get to drink in the street” than check out some art. We ended up at the Old Hickory Whiskey Bar which is one of our favorite bars. It’s usually low-key and they have some amazing creations. The Old Fashioned comes in a smoked rimmed glass – classy AND delicious.
We ended our night there, saw a unicorn pony on the way back to our car which definitely made the night A-MAZING.
Saturday was Date Day continued – yay! We decided to do some beach fishing. Mainly so Danny can fish and I can tan. Win-win right!? We decided to set out to Fort Pickens because Casino Beach is still a tourist nightmare.
