Good morning! Happy Tuesday!
2 mi up, 2 x 200m (:45), 2 x 800 (3:40), 1 x 1600 (8:10) –> full recovery between sets, 1 mi down
Unfortunately, I didn’t last very long. I only made it through the 200s before my stomach started hating me, and I needed to call it quits. I ended up finishing the majority of the workout (the 1600m @ 8:10 just wasn’t going to happen) once I got home and my stomach had a chance to chill out, which was annoying (UC is really starting to get on my nerves), but I’m glad I didn’t quit all together.
My Worst Hotel Experience
When Jess and Scott were over the other night, we somehow got on the topic of crappy hotels we’ve stayed in. We all had hilariously awful stories to tell, so I thought it would be a fun topic for CNC. I know you guys have some good stories!
Also on my list is the Days Inn on Broadway in New York City. Mal and I stayed there when I ran the New York City Marathon, and it was awful. I wish I had taken photos of our room because it was so nasty—the carpet and curtains were ripped and stained, the towels had brown stains on them (ewww!), and our room was tiny, hot and stuffy, and tucked away in an emergency stairwell. I still can’t believe we stayed there for two nights and paid $600 for it.
