Total - 22

Summary:  90 miles, 2x ab sessions, 1x hamstring curls.

This week reaffirmed what I already knew.  I can't budget travel and still maintain a decent running schedule.  It just involves too many long train/plane/bus rides, and too many walking tours, etc.  Did the best I could with it.  No core, basically stopped on the abs/hammy exercises too.  This was sort of the last big trip while I'm in Germany, so hopefully things will get better from here.  Should be fine next week.
