Last week turned out to be extremely frustrating AND completely amazing all at the same time. I wasn’t quite sure that it was possible for so much to be crammed into one week but apparently it is. At the beginning of the week, I struggled with trying to fit in a workout while trying to finish certain tasks on my current work project. My work week was going to be short and I didn’t want to leave on Thursday with any unfinished tasks.
Monday – Easy Run
- Easy Run – 4.08 miles, 54:01 minutes, 13:16 min/mile, 137 BPM
Tuesday – Rest
Wednesday – Rest
Thursday – Rest
Friday – Relaxing by the Pool
Saturday – Food and Wine Conference
Sunday – Food and Wine Conference
On Monday, I left work feeling utterly exhausted but I still wanted to get a run in. When Pete said that he wasn’t feeling up to going to the gym, I decided to go home and knock out a run on the treadmill in our garage. I quickly changed and grabbed my iPad so that I could watch a movie while I was running. Normally, I listen to music while running. I can’t do that on the treadmill. I really do need something to watch or look out so I don’t think about how many more miles I have before I am finished.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, I ended up staying pretty late at the office trying to finish some things up. I am working a unique project right now and I really want to show the project managers that I can make it work. Unfortunately, my desire to get ahead of the game at work really hindered my efforts to get to the gym for my workouts.
The plan for Thursday evening was for Pete to pick me up from work and we head over to Orlando. Once we got to Orlando and checked into the hotel, we were going to find the Anytime Fitness that was right down the road. Our plan was shot when Pete had some car issues and we didn’t end getting to the hotel until close to midnight. I was not exactly in the mood to do anything except pass out.
On Friday, we relaxed by the pool and soaked up the sun. It was awesome! That evening the Food and Wine Conference got underway and the craziness of the weekend started. When the conference ended on Sunday afternoon, I was in desperate need of sleep, a decent workout, and a chance to get back to my normal routine. Before we left Orlando, Pete suggested that we stop at Epcot for dinner at the Rose & Crown Pub in the United Kingdom Pavilion. Little did I know that he had a totally different motive than simply making excellent use of our annual passes. What an amazing end to the weekend!
How did your workouts go last week?
*By the way, Pete and I have decided that we don’t want to share all of the details of our wedding planning process until after the wedding takes place. I will keep crazy notes so that I will be able share everything after the fact. I will share a few things along the way but the regular content and stories that you are used to will remain.
