It’s been a long week–thank goodness I’ve had Fit Stanley to keep me company! Yesterday brought me to the third hotel in the third city of this business trip. By coincidence, it’s the same brand as the second hotel, so things are oddly familiar (the bedding, the shampoo) but still quite different (the decor, the layout).
My body no longer knows what day it is, let alone what time it is, so I wasn’t really surprised when I woke up at 4:00 am, until I realized that it was 2:00 am in the time zone I had just left. Still, Fit Stanley and I were not the first to hit the gym. (I think we were third.)
My plan for today was to do my elliptical + weights routine.
There was no time limit on the cardio machine, but I knew this mountain wouldn’t be as fun to climb as the one we hiked last weekend. I did like that the program used 10 second segments–a hard interval was over before I noticed just how hard it was.
There was a full set of weights, but I hate this style. They are unnecessarily large and cumbersome!
I did my usual weight routine, minus the bowflex and floor exercises:
plie squats/tricep dips
squats/front and lateral raises
Since there were no 8 lb. weights, I used 10 lb. weights for front and lateral raises, and was pleased to see that I could do 3 fulls sets of 8 reps!
Being downtown in a big city, we had plenty of options for our post-workout Starbucks.
I was meeting a friend for breakfast at 9:00 but it was only 6:30, so I also got a banana and chocolate milk to refuel. (We met at Panera, so I got to enjoy my other favorite on-the-go breakfast sandwich later.)
Do you have any fun plans for this weekend?
