Another Sunday, another weekly wrap update ! It’s officially the last month of the year and I keep asking myself where did all the time go? 2017 will be over in a few weeks – scary!
Unfortunately I didn’t get in a lot of workouts this week. I was in NYC for a team offsite from Monday-Thursday and each day was completely jammed packed. Meetings from 8-5:30 and then team dinners every night. I was basically in my hotel room to shower and sleep and that’s it. I did the best I could do under the circumstances – and since I’m not training for anything, I’m not beating myself up for the lack of miles and workouts from this week.
Monday 11/27 and 11/28
Nothing. Nada. Zilch.
Stationary bike (30 minutes)
Weightlifting (20 minutes)
I wanted to get in a run but the hotel gym only had ONE treadmill – seriously? The hotel was in Times Square so running outside wasn’t an option and I didn’t have enough time to get to Central Park.
Besides being able to see all my team members, it was great to enjoy some chocolate from London during our meetings!
3 mile run
FINALLY got in my first run of the week when I got home from NYC. It felt good and I tried out a new pair of running sneakers.
Although I didn’t complete many workouts, I was mentally exhausted from the week. However, I did stop at Starbucks for my first red cup of the season.
5 mile run.
The week finally caught up with me – lack of sleep, busy days and not drinking enough water resulted in waking up with a pretty bad headache. Luckily I was able to get my run done later on that day.
Spinning class – 60 minutes / 23 miles
Always a good time in this spinning class. The instructor is going to be out of town next weekend so I’m already sad that I’ll be missing the class, lol.
Total Weekly Mileage: 8 miles
This week was super busy and I’m glad that it’s over. Work will be crazy for the next 2 weeks but at least I won’t have to travel anywhere. I’m looking forward to getting back on track with my workouts this week.
I tried out the Saucony Guide 10 sneakers on my two runs this week and so far so good! I’m currently alternating between a few pairs of Mizuno Wave Inspire 10 and 11s, but I’ll probably have to retire most of them in a few months. That’s why I wanted to try out a new sneaker, especially if I start training for a spring marathon next month. If you know me, you know I’m a total Mizen girl, but the newer versions of the wave inspires just are not working for me. I wish sneaker companies wouldn’t make so many changes to sneakers when they release a newer version – sigh 🙁
In other news this week, Momentum Jewelry had a great sale on Cyber Monday so I picked up a few more wraps for myself. I couldn’t pass up a 50% off sale!
I also published a gift guide for runners – check it out here!
Did you have a good week? Do you find it hard to fit in fitness when you travel for work? Did you get any good Cyber Monday deals?
