My exercise for today included a 2.0 mile walk with the puppies and the Husband, as well as a lovely 5K run along the intracoastal waterway.
This trail is actually one of my favorite paths in the entire world. I love looking at the water, running through the sawgrass forest, and checking out the lovely homes.
I finished the 5K in 30:34, averaging a little slower than my normal pace because it was super hot out – which inspired a post for tomorrow called Running in Hot Weather (stay tuned!). I took an untimed break underneath a tree because it was absolutely sweltering out. It’s definitely SUMMER in Florida!
When I came home, I jumped in the pool. It felt SO good and cold against my hot, hot skin! This is the single reason why I want a pool… I would back-flip in after every workout!
Before my run, I had a bowl of strawberries.
After my run, my mother-in-law (who is British like the Husband) served up afternoon tea and scones.
I had a cinnamon raisin scone with buttah.
And two chocolate cookies (the chocolate melts in the tea and tastes sooo delicious). The Europeans do it RIGHT.
Tonight was the Husband’s REAL birthday dinner (doesn’t it seem like his birthday has been stretching on for days!). My mother-in-law made a veggie Thai coconut curry with white rice.
I also had a glass of red wine.
And dessert was mint ice cream. The Husband opted for leftover chocolate cake, but I just love mint ice cream!
Guess what we’re doing tomorrow?
I’ll give you a hint!
Are you going golfing!? I’ve always wanted to try but I’m chicken!
And jumping into a pool after a run is definitely one of the best things ever. My pool opens up Memorial Day weekend and I cannot WAIT to take advantage of that!
