Returning home from my vacation in the ADK

As you know from the “Recap: My first open water training swim” post, you know I was just in the Adorandak Mountains. If you follow me on Twitter you saw that I was diligent in posting how I got up every morning but one to get my runs in, I swam like a good little Triathlon/Marathon training crazy girl.

I actually find relaxation from doing my daily workouts (relaxation and a sense of accomplishment really), so I make time even if it means waking at 5:30 am every morning, just so I can get my workout in. Call me crazy, but I love it!

The other things I did were, hiking, Rocky Mt. Trail head1going to a water park, water parkand white water rafting. (I also ate tons of ice cream!)

Training by the numbers the week I was in the ADK went like this:

3 hikes
2 open water swims (800 meters each time)
1 white water rafting trip on the Hudson River
34 miles run

Do you enjoy completing your workouts when you are on vacation? Does everyone eat tons of ice cream when they are are on vacation?
