Slacking

Yep, that’s me. Janathon has become Slackathon.

After a tremendous 5 day start, my trip to San Diego derailed all my blogging efforts. I did, however, keep up with the running.

A recap of the past week:

Wed, Jan 6: flight to Anaheim, landing in torrential rain and then waiting for my luggage as there was a blackout in the airport, for quite awhile. 18,510 steps

Thurs, Jan 7: Anaheim run, 6.1 boring miles. One big square.  Nighttime train to San Diego for work. 22,433 steps

Fri, Jan 8: rest day, but did my running club’s Jan workout; booth set up and then a presentation to a local knitting group.Only 4,252 steps.

Sat, Jan 9: 15k San Diego Resolution Run. I treated this as a training run–the plan was to figure out some pre-run nutrition and fueling during the race, all while running a steady pace.  Results:

According to my Strava app, my pace ranged from 9:45 to 9:20/mile, except for the potty break and the gu break. I’m really happy with how this race panned out. I felt really good throughout–no nausea, no overly salty sweat.

The race started (and ended) before my work obligation: 7 hours of booth standing.  Total steps: 29,477

Sun, Jan 10: an easy 5 miles, plus another booth day. Total steps: 24,418

Mon, Jan 11: yet another run (4.5 miles), 5 hours of trade show, booth breakdown, a return train to Anaheim, and 22,548 steps.

Tues, Jan 12: I was supposed to get in a hill ladder workout, but my 7am flight back to NJ didn’t quite leave me enough room for that. Traveling steps: 11,405

Today: finally completed the hill ladder workout (6.1 miles) and back in the office! 15,206 steps.

The best part of the week, though, was when Strava synced my location:

and the comments that followed.

That kept me smiling for the past week.
