Back to Reality

I was in paradise for a week.  Literally.  We went on a 7 night Disney Cruise to the Caribbean for Fall Break. Some people may not work out while they are on vacation because it's their time to relax, but for me that's not the case.  I enjoy exercising; I think it's fun!  Plus, I had a triathlon coming up in a few weeks that I had to keep in shape for. 
I got in a workout every day while on the cruise, not to mention daily swimming and snorkeling. 
Day 1:  6 mile treadmill run
Day 2:  20 miles stationary bike/2 mile treadmill run
Day 3:  6 mile run (15 laps around Deck 4)
Day 4:  6 mile treadmill run/core
Day 5:  Pilates class
Day 6:  Group cycling class
Day 7:  6 mile treadmill run

The view from my treadmill
The food on the cruise was ah-mazing and it would have been so easy to get carried away.  Luckily, there were lots of yummy and healthy options. 

After the cruise we spent a few days at Disney World (lots of walking!) and then in Huntsville, Alabama visiting my brother.  I got to go running with my sister-in-law on a beautiful trail with fall leaves, and then I took a few days off because of a sore throat/cold. 

Now that I'm back to reality, I've been in beast mode trying to get ready for this triathlon.  This is the last week of hard training before the taper.

Monday:  6 mile run/1600 m swim
Tuesday:  20 mile bike/4 mile run
Wednesday:  1 hr yoga/swim sprints (2 x 200, 2 x 100, 2 x 50)
Thursday:  4 mile tempo run
Friday:  30 min swim/20 mile bike
Saturday:  Long run
