We set a new record high yesterday! We enjoyed degrees of 83. Eighty-three!
My morning started at the gym for a session with my trainer.
Followed by breakfast. My favorite egg scramble!
Afternoon came and I needed this.
Iced coffee on a hot day is always required.
And then it was time to head outside for a run! And to say hi to my friends.
Now is where I am going to vent. And men, I love that you frequent my blog, but you may want to quit reading this particular post at this point.
You have been warned.
I couldn’t run. Again! Every time I tried, I had the urge to pee. TMI? I don’t know what my problem is. Two days in a row now. Grrrr. This has never happened to me. Running at this day and time is nothing new. Instead of running, I just tried walk at a fast pace. The entire time I was cursing myself and my stupid body that seems to have turned against me. I racked my brain trying to figure out what was different about the past couple of runs. I mean, I just ran on Monday afternoon! The only thing that I can think of that would be different would be the iced coffee. Could it be the coffee right before my run is not a good idea for me? I’ll try it again tomorrow, minus the coffee, and let you know.
My hike was nice, except for the whole cursing my body parts part. My pace was slowed a bit to take pictures.
You may have also noticed something about this hike. I went alone! For the first time EVER, I went in the woods alone. This is huge! I made sure to be very aware of my surroundings and no headphones. I felt pretty good going because the trail was so busy the day before and yesterday was even warmer. I knew there was likely to be lots of other people around and there was. I also let me friend know where and when I was going and when to expect to hear back from me.
It was pretty awesome to be out there actually. I cannot wait for the trees to bloom! Being outside just makes everything feel better.
I also found what I think is the largest dog print I have ever seen. I hope it’s a dog!
Isn’t that thing huge?! It’s not like I have small feet. I’m a size 10 and that print is about 2/3 the size of my foot. I cannot wait to meet this dog on the trail! As long as he is with his owner. And friendly. And not taller than me.
I needed my shamrock shake smoothie as a consolation prize after that craptastic run/walk.
A good-sized handful of fresh spinach, one frozen banana, six ice cubes, one cup of coconut milk, and one package of Weight Watchers Mint Cookies & Cream Smoothie Mix.
Perfection in a cup!
What was the best part of your Friday?
