Today is the first day of the week that it hasn’t been unbearably hot when I woke up..
It was sunny and in the 70’s. I could NOT not go for a run outside.. So I did.
One of my favorite places to run in Philly is on Kelly Drive near the art museum. Its a favorite of most people actually and on really nice days in the afternoon or on weekdays it can be a little busy with bikers, runners, walkers, etc. at some parts. The art museum is there, the river, Boat House row.. BEAUTIFUL!
I usually do a loop which equals about 8.5 miles and sometimes I will do a little more if I am feeling up for it which will be about 13 miles, I almost always do the steps of the art museum a la Rocky!
Today I just did the loop and no stairs. Ever since doing my last 1/2 my leg has been bothering me so today I stopped a couple times to walk a bit. But I finished with running. Went to the gym to stretch out, do some weights. Today has been pretty relaxed since I have a much later start to the day…So it was nice not to feel rushed!
Came home and ate an apple and made a wonderful smoothie bowl… I have grown to love these. They keep me so full and I always try to sneak some spinach in.. which I love anyway in anything so its no problem! So YUUUMMMY!
I am prepping for a bit girls weekend, starting off with shopping tomorrow with a friend from grad. school for a bachelorette party outfit, and then going to Atlantic City Saturday for the night for the bachelorette party! Filled with the beach, food, drinks, fun, and a male revue!! Very excited!! Definitely need some hard core girl time!
