Florida day 2: Two miles on the beach!

Today, I was only supposed to do 1.75 miles, but I made a deal with myself that if I wasn’t dead at 1.75, I wanted to know what 2 straight felt like (this go round). Oddly enough, at the 1-mile mark I was exhausted, but by the time I got to 1.75, I got a tiny, tiny bit of a second wind.

So, ladies and gents, that’s means we have a 2-mile run in the bank! Kiddo and I tried to get out there before it turned into a scorcher, but no luck. It was hot and humid and I was more drenched than usual. As soon as we stopped, of course, the clouds came and cooled things off a bit — go figure!


Just in case anyone was confused about why I was out there running, my shirt explains it all! 🙂

So, one of the things I like about my Garmin Vivoactive HR+ and the Garmin Connect app are the data it cranks out… especially because I have a terrible sense of time or pace. This graphic pretty much explains my run — I started out fast (fast for me), and had to progressively slow down as I got hotter-hotter-hotter and my heart rate went higher-higher-higher. Yup, that’s it in a nutshell. Although, outside of the day I did speed work, today’s pace was my fastest.


Meals today were great. I was worried about keeping to low-carb while traveling, but I’ve had pretty good luck.


Breakfast: Omelette with sliced turkey, mozzarella cheese, mushrooms and spinach. I gave the home fries to kiddo, and stole his strawberries and blueberries.


Lunch/Dinner: Me, kiddo and the godkids stopped by my Florida fave Chicken Kitchen. I was a little concerned about ordering a Chop-Chop with no rice, only to find they now have a low-carb Chop Chop! In heaven…


Once that Chop-Chop digests, I still need to muster up enough OOMPH to get these squats (65), sit ups (65) and pushups (30) done. Here goes nothing!

How do YOU stick to your diet while traveling?
