and I definitely need another .. more relaxing… vacation!
Disney definitely kept us running around all day and left me exhausted! It’s a good thing we returned to a long weekend (Good Friday was a stat holiday) because I really needed to catch up on my sleep.
I managed to make it out to a Saturday morning WOD, which included a 1-mile run which I was not prepared for. The foundation group at my box were finishing up their testing week and they definitely posted some big numbers and new PRs, which is always exciting to see. The one mile run is part of their testing, so everyone did it but I wasn’t running for time. I did finish the mile (actually 1.1 mile) in 9mins 42secs. Could have been faster but there was still ice on the side walks which forced me to walk a short distance.
2 days later and my legs are still sore from the 1 mile run, just an indication that I need to start running regularly, especially if I plan on running a 1/2 marathon in mid-June. The weather is finally warming up so I should make it out for runs on the weekend.
Eating while on vacation has been pretty horrible. There was quite a bit of fried foods.. french fries especially.. it seems like fries were the side of choice. Although I always brought fruit with us to snack on, there was still potato chips and muffins.. fish n chips and crab cakes.. pizza..
And I can feel it and see it in my body 😦
But I’m trying to get back on track today.
i think it will still be a challenge but I’ll keep working on it.. and I can’t wait to be back in the gym 4-5 times a week…
