Hey, I survived! Actually I’m pretty sure I slept through the storm, it was rather uneventful. [[Note: This is not meant to downplay the damage and severity of the storm, it definitely devastated a great many places]] There were only certain areas of NYC that were truly affected, and the place I was at was not near any of them, thank goodness. We didn’t even lose power – yes, it was definitely lucky.
To those of you who were affected, I hope everything is okay, that you are safe, and that electricity and everything is restored to you soon.
I still managed some good eats, even stuck inside for 24+ hours straight.
Yesterday afternoon, after the worst was over, my friend (whose apartment I was crashing) and I were itching to get outside. We brought our cameras, and set out to document Irene’s aftermath.
This ended up being a 2 hour walk, but it was so much fun! Speaking of which, aside from a ton of walking, these past couple of days have been rest days for me. Before heading off, I decided that I was not going to worry about fitting in workouts during this transition. I felt like trying to work out every day would only be more stressful, and therefore less beneficial. I decided to use this opportunity to rest for a few days and let my muscles rebuild a little – and it felt great!
On day 1, I was totally passive, just lounging around – and I was perfectly content to do so. Day two I took this crazy long walk, and was pretty much moving around for most of the day. Day three (today) I also did a lot of walking, and I checked into my dorm room! More updates on that at a later date.
Do you workout when you travel?
Were you affected by the hurricane? I hope everything is okay.
