If you are in the mood to watch a video that is really shaky (I haven’t figured out how to make a non-shaky movie while running) then here is one that I took from my Monday workout.
I am a vacation exerciser. I like to run and keep up with my training at least a little bit while I am away because it makes my vacation even better. I love to explore the area in my running shoes and I feel kind of weird when I don’t run so I keep up with it when I am away. The key for me is getting up and going (luckily, I didn’t deal with any jet lag) early before everyone else is awake so I don’t miss out on anything.
Yesterday I threw in a little speed by doing a 5-4-3-2-1 workout. Warm-up followed by 5 minutes fast (1 minute recovery pace), 4 minutes fast (1 minute recovery pace), 3 minutes fast… etc etc. I was planning on climbing back up the ladder but I was wasted by the last one so I finished the rest of my nine miles at a 7:45 pace and called it good.
Running on a treadmill that goes off of km instead of miles means that at least 70% of my run consists of me doing math conversions in my head.
Back in time for our normal breakfast over here (we have made it a goal to eat at this fabulous bakery every morning that I am here).
What we ended up getting—> almond croissant, berry french toast, a chocolate croissant (my first one ever) and a sausage croissant. 2 people and we demolished these.
And just because it is random, I had to get my picture with Ronald in the mall. My other goal is to not wash my hair the entire time I am here.
Next up= a day at the Grand Palace and around 4 more watermelon smoothies.
Do you usually work out while on vacation?
If you could vacation anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
What was the last speed workout that you did? Details!
Ever had a chocolate croissant?
