Good Morning! I haven’t seen you guys on a Monday morning in quite a while! I’m blogging today from sunny and blazing hot Las Vegas! And by hot, I mean freakin’ hot. I’m allowed to complain about the heat when it’s over 100.
I’m here for the SHRM Conference (Society for Human Resources for those of you wondering what a SHRM was). I flew in on Saturday and it was probably my worst travel day ever.
I skipped my AM run on Saturday since it was raining and I was going to fly out that afternoon. I wanted one last AM snuggle session with Charlotte. My flight was scheduled to leave at 5:30 that afternoon. I figured I’d just go to bed as soon as I got there and then I could get up early to get a run in. Well, flight was delayed 2 hours. We didn’t take off until about 7:30. And by the time I got a cab and got to my hotel, my body was feeling like it was 1:30 AM. I’m usually in bed by 10…so this was the worst.
Then when I get to my hotel and start unpacking, they apparently left my suitcase out in the rain and some of my clothes were drenched. No bueno! Thankfully I overpack, so I’ll be okay, but c’mon!
So a long run just didn’t happen this weekend, I’ll live.
Here is how the rest of the week went though:
6/23 – Run 3.24 – I did a new route this morning to add some length. If I can get up earlier, I’d like to make this easyish run a 4 miler.
6/24 – Plank Challenge D27
6/25 – Hill Repeats 2.58. I replicated last week’s workout and did one more repeat.
6/26 – Final Plank – 2:33, Yoga With Adrienne – Energizing Morning Yoga
Plank Challenge is done! I skipped the last workout and went straight to the final test since I’m headed out of town. I’m happy I did it. I can definitely notice a difference in how I “hold my gut” in. When I catch it “relaxed” it’s not as much effort to pull it back in (if that makes sense). While I don’t think I’ll necessarily plank every day, the challenge introduced me to several plank variations which when combined make a great core workout which I will add to my weekly routine.
6/27 – Rest and travel. Since it was raining and I was leaving later in the day, I decided to rest and get one last AM snuggle with my girl before going out of town. Since it was raining I would have probably run on the treadmill anyway, so why not put off the run til Sunday at my hotel?
6/28 – Rest – I didn’t officially workout, but I did walk about 4 miles over the course of the day.
Total Miles – 5.82
This week I’m just going to try and survive this conference. The days start early and will be long. I’m not going to beat myself up though if I can’t figure it out between my body clock and the real clock. I’ll just have to do my best to eat well this week and do what I can.
Hope you all have a great week!
