Aaaah Friday!

So this week was a little hectic. When I travel for work, I’m always a little off. I got home really late on Wednesday night. After weather delayed my flight an hour, I then had to deal with construction traffic on the beltway to get home. This is how I spent my time at the airport:


I got home at about 11:30. And as I always do, I woke my daughter up for hugs and snuggles. She was excited to see me and equally excited to go back to bed.

Thursday was just a lot of catch up at work. No time to work out and I just didn’t feel like it anyway.

This morning I got up, took a walk around the block, and then did some strength training in my living room. Nothing too exciting because tomorrow is my first group run with my half marathon training group!


AAAH I’m running a half!!!!

I’m really excited & nervous to get started. There are so many thoughts and fears running through my head. I’m afraid I’ll be the slowest one. I’m afraid that at some point my knee is going to really act up and that I’ll have to drop out. I’m excited to do some real & regular speed work as well as figure out how to do a tempo run. I’m excited to learn about fueling. I’m also really excited to meet more runners and make some new running friends. So I guess there are more things to be excited about than nervous about. I usually run by myself so this will be a new experience.
I’ll make sure to post a recap at some point!

Any big plans this weekend? Do you prefer to train alone or with a group?


Workout Wednesday

Had a great run this morning. Cleveland is so FLAT! Weather was awesome too.


I’m a little annoyed with Map My Run though, I accidentally paused my workout twice (not sure how) so the time is way off. Salt, is this one of your runs?

My time is usually twice what this recorded.

But I did get this lovely picture of Lake Erie. The Cleveland skyline is on the far right.


I was excited to finally be able to get out and run outside on one of these trips. Every other time I’ve had to get going to work too early to get it in or, being that it’s Cleveland, it was too freaking cold.

How do you get your runs/ workouts in while traveling?
