The Meaning of Relaxation

Linda and I returned from Baja Mexico last night. Wednesday morning I ran for about an hour in the desert and returned for an early lunch. I was told that a passenger arrived at the airport in Loreto an hour before departure to find that his seat was sold to another passenger. So I mentioned this to Linda and we decided to get to the airport about an hour and a half early. At arrival, the news was that our flight would likely be about an hour late. This meant we could relax in the air-conditioned airport. Our plane arrived and we boarded for a two-hour and 20 minute flight to Los Angeles. Arriving in Los Angeles, we were driven to immigration and got in line . So far so good. After leaving immigration we then proceeded to U.S. Customs. Another wait in another line.

In essence, we left our Casa in Loreto about 1:15 PM. After customs, we proceeded to Southwest for a 9:15 PM flight to Sacramento. Our airport wait totaled more than the 3 1/2 hour flight time between Sacramento and Loreto. Oh yes, Tony and Deb met us in Sacramento and drove us the hour plus ride home.Yesterday, we did a lot of sitting and waiting.

The trick is to be able to relax either flying to or from a vacation spot. Easily said and difficult to accomplish. It's no wonder you can feel wiped out after vacation. Sitting down getting up sitting down and waiting is downright tiring. Prehistoric man didn't have to deal with this modern age. My suggestion is to focus on breathing and stretching as often as possible. It does not hurt to stand and walk when you can. Walking is good sitting is bad for your physiology. Movement, movement, movement. Tomorrow, I'll tell you about the trip.

Tony arrived about 9:00 AM and we did a short 5 mile or so run. We started off at a comfortable pace and at the last half-mile or so Tony showed no mercy. He picked up the pace and I followed. I have felt better. Maybe tomorrow will be different. Thanks Tony.
