Ran on hotel TM -
1.0 incline or so it said
Last night around 10:30 after hitting Riverside traffic (why?! why so late? where are you all going?!) we arrived at the Hyatt Indian Wells in Palm Springs.
I was being a super co-pilot and snoring open-mouth style for the last half of the trip so the man was excited to see a real bed and the possibility of ear plugs.
The resort grounds are massive – 7 pools, tennis courts, golf course, kids camp, spa, etc and the hotel rooms are also big, if not a little dated. But that’s ok because so am I.
We hit the party scene hard.
No, no, we didn’t. We hit the bed hard and fell asleep in seconds. King size beds are where its at and we need to upgrade our twin bunk beds immediately.
This morning the husband left at 6:15 to go golfing so I got ready to go to the gym. Ever since my sports bra fitting at RRS, I’ve been loving Moving Comfort’s sports bras and wanting to buy a few more, but they can get pricey so I’ve been searching for steals and deals.
Enter Sierra Trading Post: they have sales on a lot of the styles but not in every size or color. I ended up buying 3 sports bras on sale and using the code ALFALL2 for 20% off, and they just arrived yesterday.
This morning I tried out the Charity, a style I had never tried before, but it did its’ job. no complaints from the peanut gallery over here.
After gearing up I headed out with a treasure map to find the gym.
It was nice enough this morning that I could have run outside, but I love trying out new hotel gyms… especially when they’re really nice and completely empty.
Chilled towels for those of us with delicate skin who just can’t handle the mediocrity of a room temperature one.
I got on a treadmill and went to town watching Fox news. I ran 12 miles in 1:31 and it almost felt too easy Like I don’t know if I can trust that lying treadmill. Anyone else ever feel this way?
I think the speed was accurate, but the 1% incline (I always set the TM to 1% to offset the easy factor – no wind resistance, moving belt, etc) felt like 0%. Oh well, I probably won’t spontaneously combust over it.
Now I’m doing a little blogging on the lanai and then going to hit the pool before my man gets back this afternoon.
