Back on the Horse

I have spent this past week on a business trip to Europe - a couple of days in Liverpool for a board meeting followed by a couple of days in and around Hamburg to meet with one of our collaborators.   Long week and very happy to be home!

I enjoy my international trips and always take my work out gear, but find it very difficult to actually do anything!  Generally there are dinner engagements every evening and I find that my craving for sleep seems to quickly overcome any desire to get up early and exercise.   This week all I managed was 45 minutes on the treadmill on Tuesday morning in the Liverpool Hilton (which happens to have one of the best gyms I've ever seen in a hotel - and I've seen a lot!).   Ah well.....

On the plus side I managed to eat pretty well.  I didn't go too crazy on my old favorites while in Liverpool and the food around the Baltic coast is designed to be eaten in  moderation - how much eel, zander and pickled herring can you eat?  

A light week now and again is probably good for me, but now it's time to get back on the horse and do some serious work.
