This morning Jared and I met at the gym to do some weights and some speed training on the treadmill. I ran 6 miles in 50 minutes. Instead of intervals, I increased my speed throughout my entire run. I like doing this sometimes because it increases endurance while switching up my normal routine.
After the gym, we got cleaned up and headed to the Gulf Shores for the afternoon. Weather.com says, "Dangerous heat index. Outdoor exposure should be limited." The high was only 96 but felt like 107 degrees. So, we decided it'd be a great beach day!
And it was a beautiful day! The water felt and looked so nice! There was no oil to be seen. Just clear, blue sky and water.
When we got home we were pretty hungry and Jerry just got home from class so we made a huge breakfast for dinner. We made scrambled eggs with red and green pepper, tomato, and a little cheese. We also made wheat pancakes with blueberry maple syrup (my favorite!) and biscuits and gravy. Just getting a little of everything filled up my plate! Breakfast food is the best!
Tonight, I'm going to do some sort of abs workout. I have a couple abs workout DVDs that my mom gave me that I want to try out. I need a strong core and I'm committing to working hard for those abs!
Keep working and training hard friends,
