Here is what I cranked out:
Tuesday: 40 minutes, 13.5 miles. 20.22 MPH. Did a few fartlek style intervals where I would essentially pretend that I was being chased by a cougar. Stupid cougars…. No I don’t want another mojito and I DON’T like music by The Eagles! Jeesh.
Wednesday: 10 minutes on the bike, 15 minutes on the elliptical. The stupid bike was set on the “Hulk-a-maniac” hill setting and it wouldn’t budge. So, I couldn’t take it for any longer than 10 minutes.
Thursday: 45 minutes, 14 miles. 18.65 MPH.
I decided to switch to a morning routine this week for the first time in nearly 6 months. I had originally switched to nights to try to keep my body on one time zone (PHX to ATL). But with Arizona giving the middle finger to Benjamin Franklin and refusing to do daylight savings, there is now no need since it is only 2 hours difference.
The hotel that I am at here in San Diego is MUCH nicer than the hotel that I stay at in Atlanta - but for some reason the SD hotel is $10/night cheaper. Go figure. I’ve included an actual picture of the pool area. But, the great thing about a nicer hotel is that it has a MUCH nicer gym. All of the machines had TVs built in and…..wait for it…..they had a mini fridge full of slightly damp, eucalyptus scented towels. Let me tell you, if you have never had one of these – do it. Amazing! It was sort of like those old Sierra Mist commercials where the guy was sticking ice down his pants on a cool day. Glorious.
"The man" has been blocking blogs and everything fun at work and someone has been downloading lots of Paris Hilton at the hotel to clog up the internet there. I'll get caught up with all of my blog friends soon!
