Life in Barcelona is fun, but certainly no San Sebastian. My Spanish classes are in the afternoon, so every other day I either go for a run or do a bit of sightseeing. I had a nice 5 mile run yesterday where I was able to maintain a 10:54 pace. Obviously I'd prefer my days of running about a minute faster pace and I'll get there, eventually. My goal for Disney is simply survival and to take some really fun pictures.
My legs were a bit tired from my run I haven't run since my second day in Valencia and before that since before Morocco. Unemployed and traveling does not equal lots of free time for running, despite what I thought when I signed up for Disney. Today I did a bit of sight seeing, I went to Park Guell, which was amazing. I definitely plan to go again. It is easily my favorite spot in Barcelona so far. The view of the city is fantastic and the park has lots of trails to wander around on, a bit too crowded and hilly for running, but definitely a great place for a good walk.
