|I did not climb this mountain.|
California was awesome and I spent the majority of the time eating my way around San Francisco:
|There was a LOT of this shoveled into my mouth.|
My husband and I did go for two very easy runs in the wonderfully cool weather, but I didn’t do any real “training.” We did walk all over the city: One day my walking app recorded 11 miles! I did a LOT of walking up and down hills...
|Up and down and up and down.|
...and a good amount of easy-to-moderate hiking on the two days we visited Yosemite National Park.
|After the first day of hiking at Yosemite. These shoes were about to be rotated out anyway.|
For the record:
Run: Twice, both on the road, for a total of 5 miles in just shorter than an hour. Just enough to justify bringing my running stuff!
I did see a bunch of people swimming in the bay – one person in just Speedo! No wetsuit! That water is freezing! – but I had no desire to join them.
I’m not going to stress about this low-volume week too much. I was moderately active most days, and for me, food and sightseeing will always take priority over workouts on vacation. I spent a few hours in the kitchen tonight for food prep and I have a work event tomorrow evening, so the rest of the week looks iffy, but after that I should be able to put in some decent workouts.
My main goal for August is to run 70 miles, to keep in line with a 5-mile increase each of these last few months, and as of today I have 9 days to run 26 miles. Can I do it? If I buckle down for the rest of the month, of course!
