Good morning! I sure do wish that every Sunday morning looked like this…coffee with a view!
My beach routine goes a little like…sleep in, coffee and computer on the balcony, smoothie, more coffee and computer, workout, shower, beach. It’s pretty amazing.
As most of you know if you’ve been reading any length of time, I do like to workout when I am on vacation. It feels good to get my body moving after spending so much time horizontal (in bed and on my beach chair!). I usually default to running but I’m lucky here to have a gym on site, a yoga mat at my parent’s place and a few local gyms and CrossFit boxes that I occasionally visit. Still…I usually default to running! Quick and efficient.
Here’s a look at this week’s workouts. Definitely scaled back due to my trip but active is active so I’m happy with it!
3 mile run
3.3 mile run
Traveled to the beach this day and hit the road to stretch out my legs after a long day of sitting. I love running at the beach…flat and sweaty!
3.3 mile run
I visited a local Gold’s Gym for a BodyPump class. The class was great but the facility left a little to be desired. It was a little grungy and the group exercise room was carpeted. When I asked about mats, the girl next to me said that they usually just lay on the carpet and “pray there’s no bacteria hanging out.” 😳
While I was so happy to be doing BodyPump (it was my first class in months!), I am not down with gyms that aren’t clean/sanitary. I am really, really spoiled by Metro in Charlotte.
In other news, I think I’ll be remembered as “the girl who showed up at 8 a.m. looking like a pink highlighter…”
4.5 mile run + 2 mile beach walk + mini golf
Mini golf totally counts as a workout right? Proud to report that I was the champion of the mini golf tournament. Given my hand/eye coordination…no one had their money on me. 😉
Yoga by the pool + maybe some weights or a quick travel WOD
What’s your favorite vacation workout?
Are you good or terrible at mini golf? (My mini golf game is much like my bowling game…usually pretty terrible!)
