Before we headed out, I had a light running week (approx 10 miles), but multiple gym workouts (up to 3X10 pushups), and I actually made it to the local track workout (holy soreness Batman!) and the yoga studio.
I pushed my "long" run from last week to Monday and ran a very slow 8 miles. And then we got on the plane...
Total miles run and workouts in England? 0.
I haven't gone this long without a proper workout in a very long time (6 days!). We were busy with traveling, packing, unpacking, cooking, visiting, wedding festivities, and a bit of sight-seeing. The gym and/or a run just never made it into the todo list. It's interesting, actually. When we're working and traveling, I find it very easy to fit in workouts. It is a priority that ranks fairly highly and I make it happen. But, when actually traveling for social/fun reasons, the priority drops severely.
So, I have a big pile of clean workout clothes to unpack.
A few highlights from this trip:
-the pub lunch where we ordered haloumi and it came fried like fish & chips
|Old Bull and Bush by Hampstead Heath|
|On the walk over. From the pedestrian bridge across the Thames|
And now, I'm looking forward to being home for several weeks, eating light and increasing my mileage while continuing to hit the gym, track workouts, and the yoga studio.
