Training: Time to Reboot

The glow of the Washington Monument at dawn.

Another week on the road, another week of disrupted routine. The highlight: a 5:30 AM wake-up call for a 3.73-mile run along the National Mall and up around Capitol Hill. There’s nothing quite like the glow of early morning sun on the white buildings of Washington DC.

The rest of the trip? Walking. A mile each way between my B&B and the conference hotel. All around Jersey City as I visited a friend. Toting bags through airports. Ok, maybe the last part isn’t the most intense workout, but it’s quite a hike to run from security to the faraway gate in dressy shoes.

Now that it’s May and my schedule is returning to normal, I’m on a quest: 31 days of rebooting my training and finding a groove. This means eating better food and exercising on a normal routine again.

At the end of each day, I’ll report my results on my blog’s Twitter account using a 1-10 scale for food and fitness. A score of 1 means that I ate mostly processed junk or lived a sedentary existence. A score of 10 means mostly whole foods (fruits, veggies, lean meats) and exercised for an hour or more.

Home sweet home tomorrow.
