My Week Of Solid Vacation Training…

This was a great week!

I took off from work on Thurs and Friday and since Wednesday was a federal holiday, I had a 5-day weekend.

When it comes to my training, I diet all the time.  But when I am on vacation, I want to eat.

Whether it is ice cream, drinks, lobster rolls, pancakes, etc.  I am going to cheat on my diet on vacation and not feel guilty about it.

But I do workout.

If my hotel has a gym I try to workout at least every other day and if there is a decent place to run, I also try to run outside at least once or twice.

I don’t go crazy and I also don’t expect to set any records, but I at least try to get the blood flowing.  It makes me feel better.

On this most recent vacation I killed it.

Fortunately I had my son’s grandparents there as babysitters, so I was able to go hard almost every day.

I went running  outside on Wednesday and Thursday, weights on Friday at a local gym and more running outside on Saturday and Sunday.

Also, my running times were pretty fast.  All of my miles were between 6:20 and 6:50 per mile.

So although I ate like crap and I look bloated, I still worked out 5-days in a row while on vacation.

My plan now is to start killing it tomorrow for the rest of July.  Hopefully it isn’t too hot outside, but I have a few races I would like to run in August and a ton of good races in September and October.

Physique-wise, I am looking good but I think I have another 5 lbs to go.

5 lbs extra, some hard cardio including sprints and I should peak in the middle of August.
