Weekly Workouts – 07.08-07.14

Oh hi!  I know…I have a problem with dropping off the face of the earth for days at a time.  We were vacationing in Scotland (rough life, I know) and i wanted to spend every moment I could with the husband while he didn’t have to be in an archive.

Anywho.  Last week’s workouts and training for the Brewers Mini Marathon?  Um.  Not super impressive…

Monday – Travelled from Auch, France to Toulouse, France.  Walked a lot.

Tuesday – Flew from Toulouse, France to London, England.
Endured a 6 hour layover, flew to Edinburgh, then took a train to Stirling.
Walked to dinner.

Wednesday – Trained it up from Stirling, Scotland to Edinburgh.  Walked a lot again.

Thursday – Needed to run.  Got 4.21 miles in by doing an out & back to Edinburgh Castle (#nobigdeal).
Then, proceeded to walk 6.3 miles around town.

Friday – Took a train to North Berwick, Scotland.  Super cute town.  Reminded me of Galena, IL.

Saturday – Hiked & walked 8.47 miles from our rental to Holyrood Park/Arthur’s Seat.  It was BEAUTIFUL!

Sunday – Ran 4.25 miles along the Edinburgh canal and aquaducts.  Another beautiful run.
Then, we hopped on a plane from Edinburgh, Scotland to Paris, France.

We had a really fabulous time in Scotland and I was really sad to leave.  A recap on our trip will be coming later this week!

We’re in Paris now (SO EXCITED!) and C will be returning to the archives sometime this week.  That means that training will resume as well.  Let’s see what’s on the docket for this week…

The beauty of being 7 hours ahead is that I’m already done with my run for the day!  I went on a solo run from our rental to the Champs de Mars park where the Eiffel Tower is located.  I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s tempo run with C and doing some sightseeing as cross-training on Wednesday.  We’ll see how the rest of the week goes from there.  Here are some views from my run today… 🙂


How did your week of training go?  Link up with Jen and I!

    • I know! I couldn’t help but smile when I was running today. I am trying to take advantage of this amazing opportunity!

    • Not gonna lie, it was pretty awesome. Looking forward to my normal routes back home though (which I know sounds kind of sad…). 🙂

    • It is pretty fun, I must say. I am so fortunate that the husband gets to go on research trips. 🙂

    • Thanks! I’ve been pretty proud of myself that training hasn’t gotten completely derailed. Not being in a grid-system has made for some pretty interesting runs though! Haha.
