Jumping Coasts


I’m back home on the East coast after a wonderful trip to California. Since I am still on an earlier time I thought I’d go ahead and post an entry. This morning I woke up and went to the gym at the resort for a quick workout before my 5-hour plane ride (which did in fact get upgraded to first class completely free of charge). To get to the gym I walked through the beautiful resort grounds where the yard crew was mowing the pristine grass. Then it was through the spa building and past the pool where I relaxed a bit yesterday.

I did a 20 minute workout on the elliptical machine, sit-ups and back-ups (my name for reverse sit-ups to target the lower back) on the stability ball, leg lifts and butt kicks from a seated position on the ground. To wrap up this speedy workout I enjoyed a delicious glass of lemon strawberry water outside while I stretched near the spinning bikes (take note that next time I come to this place to take advantage of the free outdoor spin classes). I completed the workout with a few yoga sun salutations as I gazed out for one last inspired moment at the Pacific.

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
