This past week of training didn’t go quite as planned. Since I was battling a cold for a good part of the week, I decided to take it easy. Even if I didn’t feel very run down, I knew that working out would likely delay getting over my cold. It was definitely a mental battle this week, as I tried to not feel guilty about not working out.
Thank goodness I allowed my body the extra rest it needed, as we spent the weekend out of town in Charlottesville with two good friends. The four of us enjoyed a weekend of wine tasting and absolutely perfect fall weather. It was great to get away and relax for a bit.
While away, I did complete one run on the treadmill at the hotel. It was a bit of a frustrating run though, as the speed kept changing on the treadmill. Even though it was frustrating, I kept reminding myself that it was better than not working out at all, especially after not being able to workout most of this past week.

QOTD: Does anybody else find it frustrating to workout while traveling, especially when you are trying to use poorly maintained gym equipment at hotels?
