Vacation Recovery

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

So I'm back from vacation. Officially arrived home Sunday night. Took yesterday off work to catch up on laundry, housework, errands, etc - and am back to work today.

I am in recovery mode, as there was a lot of food I'm not used to eating involved in the week I was on vacation. Definitely ate heavier than usual, and did not work out nearly as much as I normally do. I got in 2 spin classes and 2 runs on my vacation, and a lot of walking too - but certainly not to the extent that I normally work out at home.

Anyhow, Sunday was back to a normal calorie day, along with a 3.5 mile run (9:37 min average!!), and then yesterday was a very very low cal day - too low really - but I was just not hungry!!! I only had about 700 cals, and I'm aware that I cannot be doing that on a regular basis. However, I think a one day thing was not the end of the world by any stretch. I got in a spin class last night, and today I have about 1400 cals planned. This is also somewhat low based on my maintenance needs, but I'm up a couple pounds (mostly water I would guess), so I'm going to take a couple of lower cal days and lots and lots of water to try to get back to normal.

I walked this morning, but allowed myself the morning off of my normal 30 min workout prior to walking as I ease back into my schedule. Tonight I'll run with my training partner, and then tomorrow it's back to business as usual for workout schedules. Only a couple weeks out from my next triathlon, so I need to be preparing!! we have brick workouts scheduled the next two weekends, and then the last weekend of the month is the tri! Yikes, it's coming fast!!

I did have a good time on vacation with my parents, and I enjoyed the slower pace and yummy foods, but I'm glad to be back to "normal" now. Although I could do with a little less crazy at work...

Ok. I guess a 10 min lunch break is long enough, right?? Must attempt to catch up on emails!!
