I had to travel into Bakersfield for work a few days this week. Bakersfield is a charming farming community pretty much out in the middle of nowhere in Central California. While I usually enjoy going out to the central valley for work, I was not looking forward to being away from my normal routine with a half marathon looming in my near future.
My first night in Bakersfield the hotel gym looked like this:
|10x10 Cell. Literally.|
The second half of my stay in Bakersfield, I upgraded my hotel and was HAPPY to find myself running in this gym:
Honestly, running like this does nothing to make me better/stronger/faster. Boo.
I'm back home now and looking forward to a 5 miler today and a 9-mile long run on Saturday. And looking forward to blogging about it once they're in the books!
