Ginger’s Training Log – 5-20-12

Bloomfield, IA

Greetings from Bloomfield, Iowa! My boyfriend and I traveled here this weekend to celebrate the nuptials of my wonderful friend and former grad school roomie, Emily, and her handsome partner, Rick. My week leading up to travel time was pretty positive. I started running again and kept at swimming to play things safe.

Once we got on the road on Thursday though, another freak accident happened five minutes into our highway rest stop run. But I’m going to save this funny/sad story for this week’s post about running while traveling. I’ll leave you to wonder why I had to take the last three days of the week off. Feel free to make some guesses! At this point, I’m desperate for humor to keep positive about thisย ridiculous foot situation.

The beautiful bride and me

Sunday: 4 miles easy at the Solon morning group run (ran solo though). Bought new shoes, too!

Monday: 2000 meter swim

Tuesday: 6.8 miles with Salty! I felt out of shape but foot held up and this run left me smiling the rest of the night.

Wednesday: 1250 yard quick swim in between work appointments

Thursday: A little running around before our drive with one energized tyke at work and then 5 minutes at a rest stop before _________.

Friday: Off

Saturday: Off. Does dancing at the wedding count?

Total: 10.8 miles running, 2 miles swimming

I write about mindfulness, mental health, and the professional sport of running with the occasional poking fun at the sport. When I am not running, I'm either helping people as a counselor or trying to make them laugh as an amateur open mic comedian.
