Okay so I did it. I ran alone. Well, I did my work out without my girlfriends which is very different for me. But you do what you got to do on VACATION. I am staying at the lovely Pan Pacific on the water in Vancouver, Canada. It is a breath taking location with float planes coming in and out of the harbor as well as the unlit Olympic rings floating on a barge mid span of the bay.
So, here is what I did….
- Walked 45 minutes along the Sea Wall towards Stanley Park (in the light spitting rain)
- Ran 26 minutes from Stanley Park to the hotel (in the pouring down rain)
- 50 push ups (inside)
- 100 sit ups (inside)
What I loved about this experience was the great scenery in spite of the rain. I also used music which is not my usual thing. But it definitely motivated my pace. I found I sped up or slowed down with the beat. I thought it could be a good tool towards the end of the race to keep me running. Here’s what I listened to today.
- Pocketful of Sunshine
- Don’t Stop the Music
- Viva La Vida
- If I Never See Your Face Again
- London Bridge
What do you like to listen to while you run? Please share your running play list. I love to hear what you run to….
