July 29, 2014

July 29, 2014

Hello, I am back in DC! I arrived stateside late Sunday afternoon and spent yesterday catching up on work and life stuff so I did not get a chance to post my training recap.  As some of you know, I was on vacation in Turkey and the Republic of Georgia. 

Monday 7/21 – Walking/touring Istanbul

Tuesday 7/22– Walking/touring Istanbul

Wednesday 7/23 – Walking/touring Istanbul / Flight to Tbilisi

Thursday 7/24 -Walking/touring Tbilisi

Friday 7/25 – Hiking Turtle Lake in Tbilisi / Drive to Stepantsminda

Saturday 7/26 – Hiking to Gergeti Trinity Church

Sunday 7/27 – Flight back to the US

Total: 0 but lots and lots of walking and hiking

As you can see I did not get any running in.  This was my first vacation without any races in a long time!  My friend Ali and I had planned to run in Tbilisi, but it was too hot (although less humid, the sun was very strong).  Although I did not get a lot of running in, my legs stayed busy  walking and hiking (usually 3-5 hours a day). 

Here are a few hiking/fitness highlights from last week (they double as social highlights since I was visiting my friends Ali and Stephen):

I will share my vacation next week! So much to catch up on (errands, reading etc)

How do you incorporate fitness while on vacation?

Do you have any favorite hiking spots?
