Today was a mellow almost day off from training.
I woke up super lazy and decided to stay in bed for a little bit and start my day later than usual. I was able to get out of bed by 9 ish as the day was a little bit gloomy. I naturally debated on what should I do for training and decided to take it back to the beach and go run in the sand to change the terrains a little.
As soon as I got to the beach the gloom was so dense that I didn't think it would go away. Walked all the way close to the water, dropped my bag, water and clothes (yep... I run in my bikini. Let's be honest that we do not have all the time in the world to do all we want, so when I run I can do both: workout and work on my tan... done and done! Multitasking is the key folks.LOL!). Was hoping to run 5 miles, but my legs were really sore from yesterday, the sun started to come out full force and the sand got real hot.. real fast, so I ended up doing 3.3 miles and it felt great to jump in the cold water to cool of the muscles and wash the sweat away.
I brought a book and somethings to write while chilling all by myself... it felt so darn good!!!!
Went to hangout with family after for a little while and was in the mood for a burger, but a normal burger... more like a burger patty topped with cheese and guacamole.
