I’ve been in Indiana since Monday and get to head home this afternoon. Hooray!
During my stay, I’ve had quite the little tour of the suburban towns of Indianapolis. Our hotel was in the very tiny town of Lebanon, while the audit was located in Whitestown about 10 minutes away. A few days before I left for my trip, the idea popped into my head that I might be relatively close to my friend, Kali’s new house so I did a quick MapQuest search. Only about 30 minutes!
So of course we had to meet for dinner!
The weather was beautiful… a tad hot with the sun out but once it went down, it was perfect! we sat outside at Detour Bar & Grille and each ordered a salad and a couple cocktails. It was such a treat to meet up on a whim and I’m glad we got to catch up!
We met about halfway between the both of us in the super cute town of Carmel. There were so many little shops and restaurants that I wish we had more time to spend walking around.
I really enjoyed visiting the Crossfit gym during my last audit so I thought I’d check out if there was one in the area. Since I loved the friendly town of Carmel so much, I decided to stop in for a workout at Crossfit Carmel this morning.
It’s really interesting to see how one box differs from another and is unique in its own way.
Everyone was very welcoming and encouraging during the workout. After a warm-up, we ran a 1 mile time trial and I was very pleased with my result – 6 min 47 sec! Since my half marathon set me back a bit, this was the first time I felt good enough to run again.
Next, we completed the WOD (workout of the day) which consisted 3 rounds of 300 meters on the row machine followed by 30 box jumps. It was tough but it definitely woke me up and now I’m ready for the day!
