Training Log - Tuesday, July 5, 2011 (Shenzhen, China)

The Novotel Bauhinia, my home for the last 3 days in Shenzhen, China.

On my last morning in Shenzhen, China, I figured I'd get a quick treadmill run in before leaving for Shanghai, China. Being unfamiliar with the area, the treadmill at my hotel seemed the easiest choice, even though I hate not running outdoors when visiting other cities, especially outside North America.
I've been eating lots of great food while on this business trip, so I had to make sure I wouldn't completely fall off the wagon. I opted to run a short 4.5 miles and pick up the pace, instead. After all, a short run is better than no run at all. After 35 minutes, I had logged my goal mileage. Again, I was struggling with the high levels of humidity rather than the actual running. It is crazy humid in Asia, regardless if you are running indoors or out.

I hope to get another run in while in Shanghai before flying back to the US later this week. Maybe I will be able to run along "The Bund", a famous area in Shanghai lined with architectural masterpieces of years past.
