It was a very busy week filled with more travel, lots of family and not much fitness.
Travel. I was in London for 2 days and had a great view of the London bridge from my hotel room.
I knew I was going to be busy and didn’t bring what I needed to exercise,, though I had seriously considered it. Early on the second day I was woken up at 6 a.m. by lots of noise. I looked out my window and saw this :
Tons of runners doing some kind of boot camp. They were doing some high intensity movements, then running up the stairs (you can see them coming out at the top) and running across the bridge. I kicked myself for not bringing my running gear. There were so many people out.
Family. My cousin was in Paris for the French Open so we went out to dinner Friday night. I hadn’t seen him in probably 8 or 10 years so it was so wonderful spending time together.
The weather was fantastic and this is one of my favorite restaurants in the summer, La Plage Parisienne. You sit outside, right on the water.
Wedding. On Saturday we went to a family wedding.
Fitness. The one thing I did not do much of was exercise. I did plank, motivated by these women (Marcia, Kim, Wendy), but my right calf / lower leg has been bothering me. I did run on Monday, run/ walked on Thursday and walked on Saturday, but I really felt I needed to take time off. With all the walking in London lugging a bag, and dancing at the wedding, I didn’t think adding extra mileage was a good idea. But I am not good about sitting still. I had to force myself to walk Saturday morning. Not once did I run. Boy was that hard.
This coming week I have no travel and am looking forward to being a bit of a homebody.
Tell me one random thing about your week !
