Woosh! That’s my November whizzing by. And what a month it was. I’ve been in Bolder, Phoenix, Chicago, and home. I ran a Half Marathon. I turned 50. I visited my Mom in the hospital. Still, with enough professional make-up, I can look none the worse for wear.
I went to Chicago to tape a webinar at a film studio. It was so professional! Even my male co-panelists had to get full make-up. 😉
Wrapping Up November
Since I’m on my way to Boston for what I hope is my last business trip of the year, I’m going to jump right to my recap for the Weekly Wrap. Between my travel schedule and exhaustion level, I didn’t make it to CycleBar, but I still got in a few solid workouts.
Monday: A solid Endurance/Strength/Power day at Orange Theory Fitness.
9 splat points is a lot for me
Tuesday: Strength workout at home before heading to Walgreens for my Mom before heading to the airport. With all that going on, I left my Garmin at home. 🙁
Wednesday: 3-ish mile run in Chicago.
After waiting for a bit of sunlight, I didn’t have much time for a run before I had to get to the film studio, but the sunrise was worth the hassle.
Thursday: Strength workout at home .
I really had to talk myself into this one. It was one of those days when I would have been content to practice corpse pose. I eased my way into a light workout, and then wished I had time for more.
Anne offered “curiosity” as an intention, which was fitting for a class with chin stand as the peak pose. I have no idea what I’m doing with that, but it is fun to play around.
Saturday: 9 mile run
Speaking of curiosity, I was planning an 8 mile run, but wanted to see if I could get a better view of the sun glinting off the Ferris wheel. The weather was gorgeous–upper 30s with no wind–and the running run felt easy, although my PF yelled at me later.
This view was worth the extra mile!
Sunday: 22.5 mi bike ride before packing and heading to the airport.
Luckily I sent my itinerary to a colleague meeting me in Newark for the second leg of my trip, because he noticed that while I’m flying from D.C. to Boston today, my ticket to Newark is from D.C. not Boston. Gah. Thank goodness the travel agent was able to rebook me ….
