Exercise on the Road

I am so tired right now that I can barely form sentences. If I start saying random things, just know that it is 6am and I have already been up for 2 hours. We are flying to Texas where we will do a show early this afternoon and again tonight. Then, we will be able to rest Thursday and Friday for the first time in a week!

Last week I did my usual exercise routine Monday and Wednesday. On Friday morning as I was driving to the airport, I thought, "Oh no. I probably won't have time to do my last workout this week." I parked the truck in the long term parking where our road manager, John, would be picking it up later. Then, I realized that I had 3 bags and a 100 lb backpack. How was I supposed to drag 3 bags inside myself? I couldn't, so I took my 2 bags that I was checking on the ten minute hike (and that's at Auny pace which is fast) inside and checked them. Then, I walked back out to the truck to get the 3rd one and back inside the airport. After 30 minutes of walking with three 50 lb bags, I decided that I got my workout! Then, that night during the show, I ran from the sound board to the stage so many times and that was a big place!

I did not have time to do my regular exercise routine this week either, but I walked more than I have in 6 months probably. We were on our feet working for 15 hours in the Superdome Sunday alone. I am more sore right now than I am even after an hour long Jillian Michaels workout. I think I'm covered in the exercise department this week! Maybe all of that walking and such will make up for the food I ate in New Orleans.
