Viva Las Vegas
Most of our high school group of girls are Vegas bound tomorrow morning. I'm super excited for a short getaway to SUN (currently a downpour in Eugene) and the opportunity to see some girlfriends I rarely see!
I've selected my smallest carry on (even though we're flying Southwest - free bag check) to force myself to bring just what I need on this three day adventure.
Stuffed in there I have: two swim suits, three sweat wicking tops (in case I want to run or just hang out in athletic wear), one dress, two tanks, two tops, two pair of shorts, one pair of jeans, two pair of heels and two pair of flats and one pair of Vibrams.
I figured the Vibrams are a nice option since I don't actually KNOW that I'll be working out. If I want to, I can do a run/walk combo in them or easily do a sweatastic circuit workout anywhere I want.
We touch down in Vegas before noon tomorrow so you can bet we'll be poolside shortly after.
My goal is to: have a lot of fun, laugh a TON, use SPF so I don't get fried and drink plenty of H2O (among other things).
My favorite things about Vegas: the people watching and the fact that it's perfectly acceptable to have a drink at anytime of the day. No, that isn't common place in my life, but for some reason the novelty of it in Vegas is just fun.
Viva Las Vegas Workouts
Between my chiropractor appointments and having a short week, I busted my butt on the workout front so I could get the most bang for my workout minutes.
Monday - Fitnessista strength/cardio workout (30 min), which incorporated the Schweaty May Workout plus plenty of mountain climbers, burpees, jump squats, etc. Walk 2.3 miles post work. *chiro
Tuesday - 4 mile run (am), 1 hr ZenSpot HOT yoga w/ lots of twists and glute work (pm)
Wednesday - 5:15 am wake up, 5.75 mile run w/ 1 min pickups, 25 minute Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones DVD *chiro
Thursday - 5:15 am wake up, 4.25 mile run w/ 5 x 600m hard, 25 min bike trainer spin, 20 min core and yoga stretch
After seeing the chiro again on Wednesday, he had the chance to work on my foot and it was awesome. The joint now feels very mobile and "unlocked." This week I really tried not to do my jumping exercises (jump squats, burpees, etc) after my chiropractic appointments so I wouldn't jam things back. It made for early mornings, but was much more efficient than my typical workout schedule.
What are your plans for the weekend? Someday, my goal is to go camping and BBQ like the rest of America on Memorial Day weekend.
