HBBC Week 2

Well.......week 2 of the HBBC was not what I had hoped it would be. Starting it out in Pittsburgh and then ending it with a visit from my mother in law did not leave time for much else. I know I said last week that I would like another day in the week, but right now I would even take a couple of extra hours in a day! Yikes! And the fruit and veggies- brutal! I doubt that I got past 5 servings any day this week. Bad girl!

Saturday- Run 3 miles on a rickety hotel treadmill. It shook so much that it made my phone fall down and shoot off the end of the tread twice before I finally just left it there which made the miles go even slower. Boo! Then we walked downtown Pittsburgh for about 1 hour...I'm going to say 2 miles. (5)

Sunday I had full intentions of getting up early and running the streets around the hotel now that I had my bearings, but a crappy nights sleep put an end to that by causing me to get up late. I was so disappointed about this when I walked out front that morning to see how mild it was and I watched a guy run by. Then we went to my sons championship hockey game (which they won!) and drove the 5 hours home leaving no time (nor desire) to do anything else that day. (0)

Monday I walked 4k but had no time to do anything more between shifts. (2.5)

Tuesday I wanted to run my intervals but it was raining pretty hard all day so I didn't. I suppose I could have gone to the gym but with only 30 min to spare I didn't bother. (0)

Wedneday I FINALLY got outside to run and it felt glorious! I ran 5k and then walked 2k. (4)

Thursday Mother in Law came over so I spent all of my free time with her. She lives out east (Newfoundland) so I don't get to see her very often. I didn't feel badly about missing my workouts for her. :o) (0)

Friday I had far too many errands to get done during the day after work, and then I fell asleep on the couch preventing me from getting over to the gym in the evening. (0)

I think that this has been my least productive week since I started running in June. I'm disappointed that my numbers are so low, but that's what happens when life gets in the way I suppose. I actually considered joining the 5K Santa Shuffle next Saturday just to find some motivation, but I'm not into wearing a full on Santa suit (including beard) during a race so I'll just have to find it in myself to get out there more! It can only go up from here!

Weekly total 11.5.

  1. Hotel treadmills are awful. We stayed in a hotel last year with three treadmills, all of which felt like the belt was slipping out from under my feet. We'll be in the same hotel next month so I sent them a note to ask if the machines have been recently maintained. Hopefully they come back with a yes. Fingers crossed!
