Staycation ended on Sunday, and it was a sad day. I definitely didn’t want to come back to work, but I can say I came back yesterday feeling refreshed. Sometimes we just need a little break! This morning was back at the gym. Week before last my allergies attacked and I just had zero energy to move (sneezing constantly, plus a constant headache didn’t make for any gym motivation), and last week I was enjoying my time bumming at home. I did do a couple of home workouts, but never went to the gym, and I’m ok with that. I registered for the Hokie Half Marathon in October. Here is my real shot at actually doing 13.1-since it won’t be freezing cold while training. So I hopped on the treadmill this morning, and it was hard. It’s crazy how fast cardiovascular fitness is lost! I’m doing well with the strength training, but I definitely need to up my cardio! Official training will start in June for the half, so until then I’m going to work on upping my cardio fitness and slowly increasing mileage! I’ll probably do most of my training outdoors-I find it so much easier than the treadmill, but at least I have a back up in case the weather is bad!
My favorite part of staycation (other than catching up on sleep) was the time spent with the dogs! I wish I could spend time with them all day, every day!
