Heading to sunny (hopefully!) California this week and can't wait! Am frantically trying to get things in order before I leave but wanted to drop in and say hello to all. I've been trying to crank up the miles on the weekends - with the half marathon looming in less than a month, it's about time! But I also wanted to hit my upper body in the gym and that's what I did on Sunday....paying the price today!
Question: When you work out for longer than an hour, how do you refuel? Sports drink, protein shake, goo????? Or do you stick to water until you get a chance to grab a carbs/protein snack?
Let me know! I want to try it out wayyyyy before the race!

I did a boot camp recently (thanks to pro triathlete Heather Gollnick at Sandpiper Bay, Florida!) and what a blast! A minute never seemed so long and then onto the next challenge - burpies to V-sits to Bosu balancing to running around pylons....a 45 minute calorie sizzler. (Although I did many push-ups, I wanted to spend more time in the gym doing weights....on vacation, I actually like testing out all the facilities!)
Question: When you go on vacation, what do you look for in a hotel?
