I have a much less vigorous Weekly Wrap to share this week as we have been away on a little vacation in Arizona all week long. I had intended to use this week as a cut back week but had to throw in some exercise of course. Joining in with Wendy and Hoho for the Weekly Wrap Arizona Style. I will throw in a few more photos than usual because the views are magnificent.
Weekly Wrap Arizona Style
After a quick monthly Soup Club exchange, we headed to the airport to catch our flight to Phoenix.
We drove a little over 2 hours from Phoenix to Sedona. Explored around the town a bit but unfortunately the weather was not great. It was raining and a little colder than we had hoped for. Staying in a gorgeous resort with spectacular views sure helps though.
The red rocks truly are magnificent even on a rainy and cloudy day.
Tuesday- 1 hour yoga and treadmill power walk 2.5 miles
Woke up to another rainy and cold day so hit the treadmill for a quick power walk. We decided to make it a relaxing spa day with a great massage. Took a yoga class at the hotel that was more of a stretch class but it felt good.
Wednesday-Drove to Grand Canyon +3 mile treadmill power walk
We drove about 2 hours to see the Grand Canyon. Despite the fact that it was snowing pretty hard up there and crazy cold, it was really magnificent to see. The photos do not do it justice but trust me the white snow glistening was a truly beautiful site.
Thursday- 3 mile run
Finally better weather! Drove a few hours to Scottsdale where we were staying with friends for the next few days. Finally got an outdoor run in later in the day. I have become obsessed with all the cactus. They are so much bigger than I expected and really just so interesting looking.
Friday-30 minute Peloton yoga + hiking in Cave Creek 2.5 miles
Went on a very scenic hike with friends in Cave Creek. Such spectacular views and perfect weather.
Saturday- 3.5 mile power walk
I had intended to finally get a proper run in but just was not feeling it all when I started. My shins were bothering me and I could not get out of my own head. Ended up just bailing and doing a power walk. Thinking I need new shoes or I am just not used to running alone and missing my running crew. Anyway, tomorrow is another day. Ended our vacation with an outdoor yoga class. Can’t beat this view!
