Training for week-ending 3/24/13
On Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, I was at a conference in Las Vegas.Â They had a fitness center at the hotel, and I could have woken up earlier each morning to run outsideâ€¦ but I did not do such things.Â Instead, I participated in the after-hours cocktail events sponsored by the Conference organizers and/or their vendors.Â At least I met a lot of people, fellow leaders in Internal Audit, whom I can contact in the future if I need any assistance.
Iâ€™m back in the bay area on Thursday, and yet I skipped a workout.Â Â Â My flightÂ came in late on Wednesday, or should I say early Thursday morning.Â My flight was delayed so I did not arrive into SFO until 12:30am.Â I was very tired on Thursday and needed more rest time, so I decided to skip the run or bike or swim.
On Friday, to make up for the lack of workouts and runs for the week, I woke up early and did the spin class at the gym at 6am.Â It felt good, but a little difficult; I stuck through it till the end of class.Â After work, I was still feeling good so I decided to go for a short run at Stanford Dish.Â I ran a total of 4 miles, still felt good, but was running slower than usual.Â However, IÂ rolled my left ankle when I ran over some small pot hole or crack (or something!) on one part of the dish, but it was fine.Â On Saturday, I planned to join the NTTS for the Redwood Shores swim, but I was taking so long getting ready, well I was really taking my time, so I decided to do lap swim at the gym instead.Â I ended up swimming 1300 yards and spent an hour in the pool area.Â Finally, on Sunday, I ran up Edgewood Park, running through some of the trails inside the park, and popping out to Canada Road.Â On Canada Road, I ran south to Woodside then back to the corner of Edgewood.Â At that point, I met up with Sopheak and her crew, where they were doing a brick workout.Â I joined Sopheak for her 3 mile run (when she got off her bike).Â For today, Sunday, I ran a total of 16 miles, partially on trails and road.
It is 2 weeks till AR 50!
