I was away for a work conference in Boston! Which was awesome because it was Boston. But was not so awesome because I had to eat out for every meal and let’s just say it was a bad, bad week where eating and drinking are concerned.
HOWEVER! The hotel had a really awesome gym and I went every day. Except the day that I…wait for it…RAN MY FIRST EVER 5 K! AHH. I didn’t even know I was doing it til I got there (my ab muscles aren’t doing so great right now, though, so perhaps training would have been in order had I known) but I did it! I walked probably about 200 yards total (in two different increments) and ran the rest! THAT’S SO GOOD FOR ME. I thought I was going to faint…but Jillian Michaels was in my head the whole time telling me that unless I throw up, faint, or die, I have to keep going! And I made it! It was also SUPER beautiful because it was along the Charles River at like 7 am in the morning, with the sun rising and stuff. Just gorgeous!
I plan to do another one soon (and to train for it!) and to make it all the way straight this time! :)
