This past week was busy, busy, busy. I attended (and presented at) a conference in San Francisco. I did a lot of running in San Francisco, which was awesome! It was a good trip and a great conference but I am wiped out and need a couple of nights of good sleep to feel back to normal. Cross country travel will do that to ya! As you may remember, I will still be running (and even doing a couple of races) in between now and when I start training for the Berlin Marathon. But I’ll primarily be focused on cross training and keeping my base level of running up. I imagine I’ll run a few days a week for the next month or so before training gets going. In that spirit, I will continue to enjoy all of your training recaps, so please do keep linking up! This is a low-key link up, but if you participate regularly, link back to this blog. Now on to the maintenance training recap!
Monday: A rare double run. I only had time for a couple miles before work and so after work, when the weather was perfect, I headed out for another couple miles. Total of about 4.5 for the day.
Tuesday: Flew to San Francisco – no running but a good about of walking to offset the almost 6 hour flight.
Wednesday: Ran with a few conference colleagues to start the day. It was beautiful – and CRAZY hilly. Oh, San Francisco, how I love you. Just under 5 miles for the day.
Thursday: No running, but probably 3 miles of walking. The weather was perfect the entire trip – crisp and cool in the mornings and sunny during the day. Perfect!
Friday: 3.5 easy miles to start the day and then after the conference ended that afternoon, about 7 miles of walking around San Francisco. We saw (on foot) the Painted Ladies, explored the Haight Ashbury neighborhood and Golden Gate Park. I was TIRED by the time we got back to the hotel.
Saturday: Y’all I ran on the Golden Gate Bridge!! It was so neat. I’ll be sharing a post about how to do this (i.e., how to get there from downtown, etc.) soon. Just under ten miles for that run. And then more walking with my family later that day.
Sunday: Rest – I flew back home and am probably going to sleep forever.
Total mileage for the week: 22.23 miles
Total mileage for the year: 441.42 miles
Do you travel for work? If so, do you enjoy it?
