Well, one week after the marathon and I am still on my marathon high. If you missed it, you can read my race recap here.
As part of my training plan, there is a 3 week recovery plan, so I exercised 6 days this week, either a walk or run/walk. I was a little stiff Monday and Tuesday but the walking helped get the blood circulating and I am sure it helped with a speedy recovery.
- Monday : 45 minute walk
- Tuesday : 30 minute run/walk
- Wednesday : 60 minute walk (treadmill)
- Thursday : 45 minute run/walk (treadmill)
- Friday : 8 mile urban hike
- Saturday : rest
- Sunday : 90 minute walk
I flew to the US for work on Tuesday and will be here until Wednesday of this coming week. I spent the weekend with my brother and sister in law in Baltimore, we hadn’t seen each other in over a year and I hadn’t been to Baltimore in over 10 years. The timing was quite appropriate as it was sibling day today.
We did an urban hike to explore the city. We came across this huge fallen tree, green house and carved sculptures in Druid Hill Park.
My brother went over the tree, my SIL and I went around it.
We made our way to the harbor. It was windy and cold.
After 8 miles, I was dead. Well, my legs were dead.
On Satruday we did a bit of shopping. I hit up all my favorite American stores, including Athleta. I am glad they are not in France, else I would be broke.
I didn’t realise that Baltimore was the home town of Underarmor. They have a huge campus and this was in front of their store on the harbor.
On Sunday we took advantage of the sunny weather to visit the tulips.
My SIL is a professional metalsmith, and makes jewelry, so I poked around her studio a little bit, checking out all of her new pieces. Check out her website, Hilary Hachey, if you are interested in seeing her work.
We spent the rest of the weekend catching up, reading, watching golf and eating home made pizza. My brother is an amazing cook.
I am now off the NJ for 3 days before heading back to France.
How was your week ? Did you do anything for sibling day ?
