Running longer and faster… a few thoughts…

A different day

So the day started perfectly after a great night of sleep. Had a nice evening out with girlfriends, talking about everything possible on earth (ok, lots on our little self, but great indeed!). Indulge myself with a drink (we were celebrated!) AND a dessert (sometimes, you should not take “no” for an answer 😉 ). Evening later on spent on tidying a bit home before business trip of today. So despite feeling a bit down before the cleaning of the home, the night was peaceful and rested I woke up this morning.

Good start for a dinner!

Temptation until the end!

After work, had packed my bag for business travel in the end of afternoon and just had to buy this smoothie at the airport…Seriously?

Do you?

Do you?

Did not see nor feel the plane taking off. Was already in the arms of Morpheus… Woke up in the air and time for some food. Generally never take sandwich on the plane as 1) they most likely have butter on them and 2) they generally do not look appealing. But this time I did receive a special meal “Non lactose”, which actually was looking good and was good. Hopefully my stomach will confirm! On the top of that, had a glass of water with lemon and a warm tea with lemon as well 🙂

Yummie dinner?

Really lactose-free?

Chocolate, Yummie!

Chocolate, Yummie!

Finally arrived at the hotel, took a couple of minutes to change to my gear (More Miles short – Yippie!, NY singlet and running shoes): IMagine my disappointment when finding out that there was no running machine… So workout on the cross-trainer did the trick (more or less!). 10 minutes warm up (with 3 min fast in the middle) then 20 minutes mixed (3min semi-fast, 2min backward, 6min fast, 2min backwards, 5min fast, 2min cool down). Felt fine. No real sweat nor tiredness. But good feeling. Following this by shower (hot hot hot, especially on the thigh… Unsure if good for it, but nice it was!). Massage of the left thigh with the thai liniment (haaaa burning when applying it and soooooo sold afterwards!). Good night talk on the phone and then update of this post.

Now time for sleeping really to ensure a good shape for tomorrow (planning a light training in the morning before work… Will see how it goes!)

Dubai: 8 days to go…..
