Can this week be a better week? Today is my Friday, I get to leave early, plus it will be in the 70's for the next 5 days!

March in Minnesota is usually unpredictable as is April. We still usually have snow and are aching for spring. But this year it seems like summer is coming early. They are talking 75 by Friday. In March.... in Minnesota.... this is crazy! But I like it!
I was able to get in a nice and warm 4.5 mile run in yesterday and then once I got home from work, I headed out again with my son. I knew in my head what mileage I wanted to hit for our walk but I didn't clue him in. It was just supposed to be a nice walk with mom! We chatted the whole time and then just before hitting mile 3 I tell him where we are at and how long our walk was going to be. He was shocked that we were going to get in 4 miles. He said that it only felt like 1 mile. Maybe that was because we were chatting so much! The sun was warm and it felt so good. The conversations were funny but then some were very serious. Andrew knows how to make me laugh so he had a few very funny comments.
When we got home we both felt very good but also starved and ready for dinner.
Today is another fabulous day and another day that I have to be outside. I am pretty sore from my weight lifting session on Monday.... those split squats really killed my legs. But I think I will head out on the trails again this afternoon for a nice run. And then of course another walk with my kiddos and maybe hubby can go along this time too. (He stayed back yesterday to do a little painting in my sons new bedroom.)
Grilling chicken breasts tonight and having a fresh salad full of greens! Can't wait! Maybe we will have a picnic outside.......
Enjoy the day!
