Today’s Workout: 4 Mile Run, 5 mile bike ride
What a lovely weekend. It was a whirlwind. I’m sad to see it winding down.
There were birthday celebrations…
This morning began with breakfast and a four mile run in Central Park. My training called for an easy run at a 9:58 minute mile pace. It was so hot and humid. Usually I am a huge fan of the heat and rave about it but it’s taking me some time to adjust to running in the heat this season.
After my run I showered and headed over to Long Island City to visit a friend. She has a roof deck so I happily accepted the invitation. It was just a nice afternoon with lots of girl chat, sunscreen, pitchers of water and magazines.
Upon seeing many people BBQ’ing, I knew I wanted something of the sort for dinner. Since I’m on a bit of a food budget right now I was able to whip up a meal from ingredients I have stocked in my kitchen.
I enjoyed a Brooklyn Summer Ale…
…with salad, a veggie burger and homemade fries.
I am currently watching the movie Country Strong (while crying) on Netflix and am about to dig in to leftover birthday cake and it wasn’t even my birthday! I made this cake for a special someone in my life, we’ll call him M, using this recipe. He is a chocoholic so I thought a Devil’s Food Cake was in order.
What did you do this holiday weekend?
