good morning - or aloha! from molokai! haven't been online as much - well, i have been online because work has decided to get back to full speed, even though i am in hawaii. i don't really mind because it has been much too slow for 3 months, and since i mostly work at night, i still get to go out and play in the day.
yesterday was my first run since the half marathon last saturday (it is hard to believe i was shivering waiting for the start in 30-degree weather a week ago now!). the first three miles went great, the last fizzled, but i'm glad i only went for four.
nutrition has evidently done well - i'm back down at my bottom weight, 102.4 this morning (and this is usually not my lowest for the day). we've had the most delicious salads - i opened and rinsed a can of beans, then put them in the fridge to marinate in balsamic vinegar. one night i made a napa cabbage salad with peanutty dressing (and the beans), and the other a kale salad. there is a fantastic organic farm on this little island, so the fridge is stuffed with veggies.
we walked the beach twice and i'm amazed at how much stronger i am now than when we were here in january - we made it all the way down to the end (3 miles) without becoming exhausted, as i have in the past. i love walking along the edge of the water.
hope everyone has a great saturday!
live every day so the border collie is happy for a good, active life!
