Workout Fail

Another City. Another Hotel Gym. Frankly it is getting old. This has been a long time away...even for me. There is a part of me now and then that is getting a bit tired of this schedule.

Flew into Denver yesterday and attended a customer reception. After being very Kompliant at the reception … not so much at the customer after-party. It wasn't a late night but it was an early morning...I did not get up to work out thinking I would do it tonight. Well, I just got back from the gym and here is how it went.

All 4 dreadmills were occupied...so, elliptical it is. Did 20 min. No bar of course (hotel gym) so no overhead walking lunge. So, with 20lb Dbellz in each hand started to do lunges but started to aggravate an old achilles injury...no lunges...so I did deep squats. Then the next exercise was … you guessed it, squats...hmmmm --- just did those. Next up, oh, more lunges...nope. East/West jump...was just too frustrated at this point because these hotel gyms are starting to get the best of me. I left.

Done.

PS - after walking around the City my achilles discomfort has traveled up into my calf. Thinking what it might be that I did to irritate my foot/achilles/calf I can only think maybe it was the hours and hours of trampolining with my Grand-littles last week and weekend. If so, well worth the smiles and fun!

Is that the Jets’ report card?
Elliptical > Dreadmill anyway. WINNING!
Ah the old trampoline injury. Take care of it bro, don’t want it to get worse.

    It is very frustrating when the hotel gym turns out to be shit. Hope the achilles situation improves. Let me know if it doesn't get better after a few days.

      I wish I could say something that could improve your situation ....
      IT DOES SUCK ...BUT...you had some fun with the kids, ur good on the diet, u did at least some squats and cardio so life is good. This is not your last program , right ?...kenzaiverse and all of us in it are not going anywhere , so take it easy, take care of that irritation (maybe roll/stretch/warm up before you hit the bars?) and we'll see you tomorrow :)
      same time same place ....don't forget to show up ...we will be here cheering you on no matter what. NOW have a drink because I can't LOL...or da fish will have to drink for all of us :)

        Trampolining definitely worth the pain (as long as it is short term). Sometimes leaving is the best choice for sure. home soon I hope

          Your travel schedule is horrific at the best of times, let alone the current one. Your body is the better for the effort you make with hotel gyms, clean eating etc. Your soul is the better for enjoying time with the grand littles. Well done Scott! Be easy on yourself - you're making an amazing effort!

            I feel you. But you are persistent amongst all the frustrations. Sometimes (with an old knee injury) I swap out the lunges with squats and then next turn, yup, squats. It’s hard. Gym thing sounds tough and not easy to keep ticking along like that plus travel. You are showing up and doing more than most.
