Neglecting my Running Shoes in New Orleans

I didn't train as hard last week as I did the previous week because I was preparing for my trip to New Orleans. Last week reminded me that life is unpredictable and I should give myself a break when needed. Some weeks I'll kick ass at training for a race, and the next I'll have to focus on other aspects of my life. Try as I might, I can't always fit everything I want to do in one day. Do you ever feel guilty about missing workouts? Tell me I'm not alone! This week looks to be more of the same as I travel. I keep telling myself it will be OK.

Last week's workouts:

Sunday: Rest day.
Monday: Run 1.2 miles and 25 minutes of yoga.
Tuesday: Orangetheory. I ran 2.03 miles and rowed 750 meters in the first part of class. The floor exercises included side lunges, bridge leg-ups, pulsing half-squats and low rows with the TRX straps.
Wednesday: Rest.
Thursday: 20 minutes of yoga.
Friday: Orangetheory session included 2.65 miles on the treadmill and several all-outs, plus 600 meters on the rower and lots of floor work.
Saturday: Rest.

February mileage so far: 15.18
Yoga minutes: 45 minutes.

I'm writing from my Airbnb in New Orleans. I've only been here a day and I already love this vibrant and unique city. I will definitely be back. I plan to share more about the trip soon, but in the meantime take a peek at scenes from the Big Easy.
