Of course being a holiday weekend we ate a lot. Thursday night was Walk On's & Friday night was Caliente.
I found something new at Caliente - can you believe there's something I haven't tried?? Adobo Chicken tacos. Yum! I love their tortilla soup!
Friday morning we worked in the yard. I pulled a lot of weeds & I didn't finish. I can deal with the heat but the humidity was crazy & I was soaking wet in about 4.7 seconds. I finally just got in the pool & floated for awhile. I swam some laps too.
Saturday I go up early to get a run in before all the July 4th festivities started. Also to beat the heat.
It was hard. I figured out that I wasn't hydrated enough. It's crazy what a difference that makes. I drank water Friday but considering how much I was sweating I didn't drink enough.
After the run I found a nail salon that was open & I had a pedicure. Y'all just don't know how good it feels to have someone massage your calves & feet after a run!
Then it was time for the party. We hung out with all of our neighbor friends at Jackie & Dennis'.
We were able to float in the pool for a bit before the torrential rains came. I honestly don't remember the last day that it didn't rain. It's ridiculous!
We had a really fun day with lots of good food. There was a dip that I really liked & it was healthy with black beans in it. I have to get that recipe.
Sunday afternoon was Cael's birthday party. I got zero pictures of Cael or any of the other kids because I was too busy playing with precious little CC!
CC is Cael's cousin & I haven't see her since she was a little baby. She turns a year old this month.
Again, there was a torrential downpour when it was time to leave the party. The only good thing I can say about the rain is that my plants love it & I'm not having to go out in the ridiculous heat to water them & it's not raining early in the morning so it doesn't interfere with my runs.
Today I actually didn't have a hard time getting up. I slept good. My plan was to run 5 miles. That's what I've been doing during the week. I was at 4.6 & I decided that I didn't feel bad at all so I was going to go 6. I wasn't sure I'd make it to work on time but I was going to try.
I did 6.1 because I wanted to compare my time to Saturdays run. So, I was faster & my average heart rate was lower & I burned FEWER calories. That makes sense because of the lower heart rate but geeze!
Now I just have to figure out how to keep that pace the whole 13.1 miles & I'll have an awesome PR!
