Today started by dragging myself out of bed at 7:15 to go for my long run (only 12 miles this week). The first hour was fine, the second was almost unbearable. It was so incredibly hot. By 8:30 it was 90 degrees and the air was so thick and humid. Any time I was in the sun with no shade available I was certain I wasn’t going to make it. I was able to finish it out but boy did I have to dig deep to make it happen this morning!
After showering, having some breakfast and enjoying a huge cup of coffee I headed back down town to hit the farmers market. I got everything I needed (more fresh pasta, veggies and fruit) and then wandered around taking pictures.
When I got home, I made a quick egg sandwich and a smoothie for the road and headed to the beach for the afternoon with Jenna and Lindsey. It was the perfect beach day, there was a slight breeze to keep the temperature from being overwhelming.
We didn’t get off the beach until 5:30! We didn’t get there until around 2 but I was shocked we stayed so late. It was just such a nice, peaceful day. When I finally made it home, Scarlett was playing with the puppy from next door and it just about melted my heart.
The rest of the night included reading my book and just hanging out. Man do I love my break times!! Tomorrow I will have to start studying for my comprehensive exam a little bit, just to do something productive.
Hopefully tomorrow’s run won’t be as painful (and sweaty) but we will see, hopes aren’t high!
