Today I walked and that’s okay

According to my training plan, today I was supposed to run 4km. I didn’t get to that, though, because we’re on vacation and we went for a walk. As a family we walked about 7 km today, and 6 km were on a beach. Instead of running, I pushed my 16 year old son in a rugged beach worthy wheelchair on the sand right next to the ocean. Our whole family spent the whole day together on the beach laughing, enjoying the fresh air, and having a fantastic time. The other 1km was spent pushing him in his regular chair which is not at all beach worthy. Thanks to Parks Canada for making sure there was a beach chair available for my son in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve near Tofino, BC. The wall wasn’t part of the training plan, but I wouldn’t have changed for it for anything.
