Surviving Thanksgiving

Posted By on Dec 4, 2015 |

Week 3 of the Urbanathlon proved that I was able to make it through the holidays while still keeping focus on my diet and exercise routine.  While traveling I was able to take my TRX along with me for the ride and carve out at least 30-45 minutes per day for my workouts.  My TRX door mount came in quite handy while traveling to new plces.  I was able to continue my TRX routines without skipping a beat.  It was challenging but fun.  I even was able to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade while performing my 30 minute workout.  IMG_2697

During my 3rd run of the week, I took a new route in a brand new location.  While getting a little bit lost, I wandered into areas of my route that were so dark, I almost couldn’t see my feet below me.  But it was fun, and interesting.  And I had some comfort in knowing that if things got a little bit sketchy, I had my Krav skills as back up.  Looking back though, I think in the future I will stick to more well-lit areas.  No need to go looking for trouble when there is none.IMG_2723

My final day of week three was a travel day and with nearly 11 hours in the car, I decided that I would take the day off.  In the three weeks of doing this urbanathlon, I have only taken 1 other day off so I felt that I deserved it.  Week four is around the corner and nearing the halfway mark of my training.  I feel as though I am faster, stronger, and have more endurance.  While my weight isn’t exactly where I want it to be, I can certainly see results when I look in the mirror.
