The theme of this week was TRAVEL. I felt like we were on the go the whole week….oh wait, probably because we WERE.
One of my best friends got married on Saturday out in San Fran, so hubs and I drove from Philly to Massachusetts with the twins on Thursday to drop them at my parents’ house for the weekend. It was a very long drive (7+ hours) with lots of traffic. Then we got up at 3:30am on Friday morning to fly out on to San Fran at 6:00am from Boston! We enjoyed an amazing weekend in San Fran then I got up and flew back to Boston Monday morning at 6am (another 4am wake up call) to get home to the babies! Hubs wisely chose to stay in SF for a few days for business and got to sleeeeeeep a bit on Monday morning – lucky him! Whew. Are you even following me anymore? Do you even know what state I’m in now? No. Me either.
It was all such a whirlwind. It was fantastic to see friends, watch one of my best friends get married to her love, and celebrate with food, drinks, and did I mention food? But needless to say, with all that time spent in the car and in the air – I was left with little time and energy to run.
Thankfully it was a “step down” week in mileage for my marathon training. But still, I worked hard in the early part of the week at home in Philly to squeeze in as many miles as my legs could handle because I knew getting runs in with all that traveling would be tough. I did manage a 10 minute HIIT workout in my hotel room on Friday evening before the wedding rehearsal dinner. It doesn’t sound like much, but 10 minutes of non stop pushups, lunges, squats and plank got me breathing heavily and I felt a little sore the next day….so it counts! Hubs and I took a 3 mile run in the Embarcadero in San Fran (i.e.: a not overly hilly neighborhood) on Saturday morning which was awesome.
This was for sure one of those weeks when I had to say to myself – just do your best. It wasn’t perfect, but every workout and run counted for something.
