Good morning from Georgia! We go home today, so sad. It was such a quick trip but hope to come back and visit soon.

We have had a wonderful time. Sadly, I didn’t workout at all while we were here, but that’s ok my body probably needed the break. Here is what I did this week:

Sunday: rest

Monday: 3 mile run

Tuesday: 45 minutes stationary bike, upper body weights

Wednesday: 3 mile run

Thursday: rest

Friday: rest

Saturday: rest

Definitely not a great workout week, so I will be hitting it hard this week. I have got to start building my mileage back up. My right knee is STILL somewhat sore, but I am going to keep foam rolling and stretching!

QOTD: Do you cut yourself slack with workouts on vacation?

Comments

  1. Depending on where I am vacationing I will cut myself some slack but when we travelled to Hawaii this year I made myself exercise most days just because of the sheer amount of overindulgence I was doing on a daily basis! :)

  2. I tend to think walking around on vacation IS a workout ;)

  3. After 7 months of running, I had an out-patient surgery last week that has me benched until this coming Friday. I actually won’t even be cleared to run until Friday and of course I’m signed up for a 5K on Saturday. (In my defense, I signed up for th 5K before I knew I had to have surgery :/ Any recommendations on what I can be doing in the house this next week to keep up my strength? I’ve been planking every day and slowly working in yoga stretches and positions. I may see if I can start walking, not running tomorrow. Of course, I’m scared to death that 2 weeks completely off is going to really mess up my progress :(

  4. Like Jan said, it definitely depends on where I’m vacationing and with whom. If I was on a short trip to visit with family, I would probably cut myself slack because the important thing is to spend as much time with family as possible… plus three days off isn’t much of a big deal. These few days off were probably needed like you said, and you’re next workout will probably feel so good!! On longer vacations when it’s just my honey and I we always work out.

  5. Funny you ask that question today! Just got to Disney World this morning to celebrate our 10 year anniversary plus we left the kids at home. Tomorrow will start week 3 of marathon training. Really don’t want to miss any runs but I know that I will. The walking will be an okay replacement but I hoping to get in at least two runs in!! The answer to the question kind of!!!

  6. Yes! Wasn’t my intent. I had huge running plans. I only had a chance to run once the week before vacation and only ran once during vacation. Hope to get back on it this week

  7. While I always intend to work out on my vacation, I do cut myself some slack if it doesn’t happen. But I usually do try to walk around a lot while away. I hope your knee feels better soon!

  8. Glad you had a great trip to Atlanta! I hope the rest did the knee some good! :-)

  9. Well, sometimes I build vacation around a race :-) If there’s no race, I will put my running shoes away and just try to relax. I figure if my mind needs a break, so does my body.

  10. I usually don’t workout at all on vacation, but often do physical activities like kayaking or hiking on vacation. I just went to San Diego last week and surprised myself and actually kept with my workout schedule. It was the start to marathon training so I felt I needed to start on a good foot.
