Another week has flown by. I start my official half marathon training plan next Sunday! How is that? I was traveling for work this past week and that always makes the week fly…the days are usually longer and there is usually a day or two spent traveling.
When traveling, I don’t get my classes in, so I have to make sure I get my workouts in somehow. This week I was in Atlanta and stayed at a Springhill Suites. Not a bad place, the room was large, with a small kitchenette, a separate sitting area, free breakfast, and a small fitness room. And by small I mean:
Yes – that’s three machines. There were some free weights behind me. The dandilion on the wall was a nice touch though.
Why is it that I can’t get a bigger fitness room? Most of them are like small closets and when you are running, you are literally staring at a wall about 1 foot in front of you.
On to the workouts.
1/19 – Body Pump
1/20 – 3.1 Miles on elliptical
1/21 – PT & Core Work in the hotel
1/22 – 3 Miles on treadmill – The TV on the machine didn’t work so I was literally staring at a black screen. Luckily I could see my reflection and the TV was angled just right to watch my boobs bounce around for the entire run. Nice!
1/23 – Rest
1/24 – PT & Core Work at home
1/25 – 5 Miles Treadmill – I should have done this outside. I’m deathly afraid of slipping and falling so I wussed out and went to the gym. It’s a shame that I wasted a perfectly fine day.
Total Miles: 8 (I don’t count elliptical miles)
It was a weird week since I was traveling and I started to come down with a cold towards the end of the week. Sunday’s run was a struggle. I’m attributing it to tiredness. When I travel, I usually stay up later and don’t sleep well, so I think my body was just tired.
How was your weekend? Do you count elliptical miles?
