Running, Grilling and Being Lazy

River Trail Running
Today turned out to be a nice sunny, but humid day. I won't complain because I am loving the warm temps again and sunshine. Jason and I went on our typical Sunday run by the river. However, my legs are still screaming at me from Friday's drills then weights yesterday. And I made the stupid mistake of deciding to run over the Big Dam Bridge rather than a longer, slower, flatter run. Lesson learned. It sucked big time. But I got it done and we enjoyed a great picnic lunch post-run.

Being Lazy
After the run, I decided to take advantage of the weather and sat out on my lounge chair with my magazines for about an hour. Did I mention that it was humid by the way? I was drenched in minutes. Really wishing our pool was ready. It would have been so refreshing to take a quick dip. I definitely made it a point to remind Jason that we needed to get the top off and chemicals balanced ASAP. Of course, you know how it will work: pool ready, weather will turn chilly or rainy.

Overall, it was kind of a lazy day to be honest. I did some more laundry, but that was about it. I spent so much time in the kitchen yesterday, that I really wasn't in the mood to do much other than just relax. I even skipped my ab workout. Now that's serious laziness!

Grilling
Dinner tonight ended up being a grilled salad. Got to take advantage of the grill right! Right....then the rain started. Really? Where did that come from? As quickly as it started, it stopped. The sun came out in full force and the humidity/steam factor went through the roof. Needless to say, we dined inside.

Oh, and the salad consisted of zucchini, portobellos, acorn squash, potato, red bell peppers, Quorn patties, locally grown spinach, homegrown arugula, and leaf lettuce with a balsamic vinaigrette.
