Photo of the week: A summary of my week


I started writing a post highlighting a couple photos from the craziness that’s been the last 7 days.  But then I realized, the above drink napkin I filled in during one of my nine flights this week actually covered it pretty well.

For the textual version, here we go:

Friday: DC to Vegas via Los Angeles – Friday evening, arrive midnight.
Saturday: All day work meetings, and an evening 13.3 mile run around Vegas airport.
Sunday: Work meetings, and an 2hr mountain bike ride in Red Rock Canyon.
Monday: Conference during day, evening flight to LA, up late finalizing presentation…and a post.
Tuesday: Meetings in Orange County, 10K late afternoon run around airport, early evening flight back to Vegas, 7PM meeting in Vegas, midnight redeye to DC.
Wednesday: Arrive at 7AM in DC, 11AM meeting, back on plane by 3:30PM to Chicago, then onto Las Vegas again. Barely catch 9:30PM Cirque du Soleil Ka show (awesome). Then write Soleus 2.0 review.  Sleep.
Thursday: Normalcy, finally.  And I did get to try out my 4 years of high school Japanese in a meeting with folks from a Japanese organization. Largely successful.  Evening run, gelato afterwards.
Friday: Day-time conference, then 3PM flight to Denver, then onto DC. Arrive shortly after 1AM on Saturday. Home.

With that, thanks for reading! Have a great weekend everyone!  I’m certainly looking forward to a bit of relaxing!

  1. Wow, that is one crazy week for you Ray! I cannot understand how you manage this and still train, post on your blog etc. Have a great weekend!

    Holy crap! I’ll never complain again about my work schedule and I don’t have time to train.

  3. yeah, I saw Ka, it was awesome.

  4. Ray you inspire me. You’re time management is so disciplined with all that traveling. I have trouble keeping up my training with a job close to home.

    Keep training hard!

  5. What a busy week!
    BTW: Polar’s BLTE belt is released. Are you going to review it?
    I am wondering the software compatibility on iphone4s.
    Does it support endomondo, runkeeper and other applications?

  6. How do you arrange the bikes while travelling? One of my biggest training obstacles is doing something besides for running or weight training during business travel.
