Hurricane Who?

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.

and trees uprooted.

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.

  1. I’m glad you were pretty much unaffected! You still had awesome food too — I’ve been looking for that eggplant hummus! We lost power, but that’s about it. Some of our neighbors had terrible flooding and trees down!
