After the long day yesterday, I was asleep by 8:30 last night! I have a whole king bed to myself, so I used all the pillows to create faux body pillows on either side of me, to help me stay sleeping on my side. I slept awesome, and woke up at 5:45 to get a run in. The fitness room was very warm – 75 degrees – so I alternated a quarter mile of fast walking with three quarters of a mile running at a 9:30 pace. I finished 4 miles in 42:43 a good sweaty mess. I think hotels need to rethink their fitness center placement – often it’s right off the pool, which makes it SO stinkin’ warm! Still, it was a decent treadmill and I got a workout in, so I’m grateful. Felt good to move after sitting all day yesterday. I think all I did yesterday was sit, read, and eat!
Here’s my hotel confession: I always take the pen(s) they leave on the desk. I think they write better than other pens! Dave teases me for my hotel pen hoarding (and how protective I am of them). Do you have any strange traveling or hotel quirks?
