Hey from Rosemary Beach! I’m currently writing from my cozy patio outside my room with a beautiful view and breeze; I could get used to this.
So I felt really good coming into today because I’ve been eating super clean and working out really hard (mostly cross training since the race). I’ve really been enjoying working out in the mornings, I feel like it makes me feel better all day long. Although it’s hard to wake up earlier, it is so rewarding when I’m finished. Plus, when you workout in the A.M. your metabolism is revved up for the whole day! I’ve really been loving this app called Daily Burn. It has amazing cross training workouts you can do at home with little to no equipment, which is super helpful for if you’re trying to workout in the morning or for anyone squeezed for time. You don’t have to put on a cute gym outfit and drive anywhere, you can just roll out of bed and workout in your underwear! Hey, no judging. I especially love the kettle bell, inferno, and kickboxing workouts!

So this week unfortunately I won’t be a model citizen with my eating, but hey, we all have to go on vacation from stressing about it at some point. I’m just here to enjoy myself and not stress, so why not start the week with some excellent key lime pie?
I will still be running
everymost days though because the half is getting oh so close. Not to mention 30A is beautiful, flat, and has plenty of miles of bike/walking paths. I just have to force myself to wake up early enough to get out before the sun does so I don’t have a heat stroke. I did bring my water bottle belt to train with this week though. I didn’t end up using it for the 10 miler because I had not previously trained with it and it was a relatively overcast day, but I figured the heat down here would be the perfect excuse to break it in.
