Here the rest of the workouts I did while in Europe. Let's keep in mind we were talking A TON! Holy moly... by the end of the week my legs were absolute lead. Turns out walking endless miles on concrete city streets in semi-supportive shoes at best isn't good for the old leggies. I have been cross training/resting since last Friday.
Monday, July 14 - REST
By rest I mean walking evvveryywherrreeee in Paris all day.
Tuesday, July 15 - 3 mile run with Dad in Paris!
We woke up bright and early and ran in Luxembourg Gardens, which was about a half mile from where we were staying. We ran from the hotel, did two park loops, and ran back. It was exactly 3 miles. My dad will not want me to post our mile times...and I don't want to either. It was just a little jaunt - with this view!
Wednesday July 16 - REST
We came home from Paris that day, then I spent the afternoon leisurely strolling in London with mom.
Thursday, July 17 - 4 mile run
This was my first time setting out by myself in London (besides the 10k, which was hardly "by myself"). I ran an out and back on the Thames Path. The Thames Path runs is a walkway that runs along the river, on both sides (?). It's great, you can go for miles and miles. I left from my parents' house, which is literally right on the path, and ran 2 miles toward the Waterloo Bridge, and turned around. I ended up deleting this run from my GPS because it went all wacko again and said I ran 2 miles in 4 minutes each! So weird. This is what the view looks like stepping out of my parents' house.
Friday, July 18 - 5 mile run
On Friday I had big plans to knock out my "long run" (6 miles) in Hyde Park. My dad mapped a loop for me, so I took the tube to the park and got started.
Saturday, July 19 - REST
Sunday, July 20 - REST
Flying for 8 hours definitely constitutes rest.
