A successful first day of summer vacation is in the books. Cardio, playdate, errands, run, yummy dinner, visiting with a friend, reading for pleasure and an early bedtime. Yay!
I did 45 minutes of Turbo Jam this morning before it got too hot, walked the 1 2/3 miles to and from our playdate and then ran late this afternoon. It was H.O.T. (~90*)! I actually wasn't going to run, but I was (not so gently) reminded (prodded) with the fact that I have a 15K race in a couple weeks that is notoriously hot. So, what better training. I decided on 5.5 miles which is an easy run from a friend's house to the far end of our 2 mile rail trail and back. I carried my phone, water and had people on standby with my ETA. I made it, but it was tough; one of my hardest runs ever in fact and I ended up doing run/walk intervals for the last mile. No regrets though.
Food was decent today, I ate too much at dinner but it was pretty healthy. Avocado chicken salad, yum!
I have a few unexpected hours to myself tomorrow, so I'll have time to get in a run and a bike, Yay again!
Make tomorrow great!
Goals for tomorrow:
80+ oz water
AM workout: 30 minute run, 14+ mile bike
