As I shared in Friday’s post about our babymoon, I successfully kept up with my training during our week in Florida. Being able to keep up with a training plan while traveling isn’t always easy, but I’m so glad that I was able to.
Part of why I was able to keep up was because of the fitness center at our beach hotel. The fitness center there was a dream for any athlete wanting to work out while on vacation. Between the treadmills, ellipticals, and bikes, I counted over 10 cardio machines. And in addition to free weights, there were actual weight machines. And a separate yoga room. And a bar with cooling towels and fresh fruit. It was a hotel gym dream come true!
While at the beach I also took a couple of midday walks on the beach. It was a great way to stretch my legs, as well as to be able to enjoy the gorgeous weather we had while in Florida.
On Saturday I completed my last long training run in preparation for Virginia Beach. My motivation was the Gone for a Run Sole Sister 7 Mile Run. Its always fun to receive a medal at the end of a training run!
This coming week is a very exciting week. Not only is it race week, but its also my first week back at school. This week will be filled with lots of teacher meetings as well as setting up my classroom. Historically, back to work week is always a long and busy one, so I’m quite glad that I have very little mileage to log on my runs this week. It’ll definitely be a balancing act in terms of making sure that I don’t over exhaust my pregnancy body. You can bet that I’ll be using my success from the past two weeks as motivation for the coming week.
