We started our trip at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Florida. This hotel has an enormous pool, in fact, I believe it is reputed to be the biggest pool in the US. This was a fun way to get in a little exercise and enjoy the sunshine.
After boarding our cruise ship, one of the first things I did was check out the gym. It was fully equipped with cardio equipment and weight machines. There was also a room where classes took place and you could stretch. I spent alot of time on the treadmill during the trip and actually ran a total of 45 miles. With the Boston Marathon less than 11 weeks away, there was no way I could skip running!

I finally got to try stand up paddle boarding while in Nassau, Bahamas. We had an absolute blast with 4 other passengers from our ship. Karen, one of the girls in the group lives on Maui and was extra helpful with the rest of us who had never tried it before. Tom and I succeeded in getting up on our first try and neither of us fell off. I think it was beginner's luck!
Last of all, walking on the beach! On the island of St. Lucia, we decided to take a taxi to a nearby beach and spend the morning soaking up the sun and taking a nice walk on the beach. We also took a few dips in the ocean!
After returning home, I am getting back to my normal schedule and enjoying being outside for my runs. What was your favorite workout of the week? Try anything new?
