I'm officially in a workout rut. I love running still, but I realized this week after being pretty apathetic about working out that I need to do a major overhaul on my fitness regime. I've been doing the same routines for months now and after a long walk on Thursday I realized it's now the perfect weather to start working on something I'm absolutely horrific at: swimming. I sucked a friend into going with me to the beach this morning and our plan is to Bike 10ish miles, swim for a bit and maybe run 1-2 miles after. He's not as into running as I am so I may do that on my own when I get home, or say Eff it and just collapse on the couch.
The sun is getting brutal out so I've been very careful about using sunscreen even when I go outside for just a quick run. I've also become totally obsessed with these Fruit Water drinks. They have B-Vitamins and Green Tea extract in them, are zero calories, and taste divine after a hot run.
This week a friend and I enjoyed wine out on his porch while scheming up travel plans. I can't think of a single better way to spend an evening. In the midst of our plotting we started to spot firefly's in the woods. I haven't seen those since I lived in Kentucky in third grade! I took it as a sign we were on to something.
One potential trip: Toronto. There is a half marathon there in October that people raved about on Twitter. It also falls 3 days after my 30th birthday and would be my first international trip. I'm pretty sure it's destiny.
Here is a random photo of Salem. The look on his face is due to his disgust over how much I drool while napping on the couch. You can see a bit hiding under his paw. I nap so hard I can't help it.
Aside from International travel schemes the other incredible even this week was being asked to appear on Huffington Post Live! I was included on a segment on Tanning Addiction after the producer came across my old blog post on it.
The entire segment was about 20 minutes long but you can see a 3 minute version AOL put together that features just me. I had a blast doing it! This is my second time appearing on the news via webcam. I was pretty exhausted from working about 14 hours that day. My summer class met for the first time that night and I had to rush home to make it in front of my laptop in time. #BusyPeopleProblems
Finally, I interviewed for a ridiculously awesome summer job! It works perfectly with all of my travel plans and is something I've talked about doing for years. I'm going to keep you in suspense and not say what it is - I don't want to jinx it! I am supposed to hear back on Tuesday so if I get good news I'll blast it over my twitter/facebook.
What's the best Summer job you ever had?
Have you been on the news for anything before?
