Kelly and I had planned to do a 10K on the weekend on the waterfront trail……..It was a beautiful day……30C/90F! Perfect for a run if you ask me! I love running in the heat! (Words that would bit me in the ass later)
I had never run this trail before but had heard good things…….
Kelly and I loaded up with some coconut water for our running bottles and I packed some water on ice for after the run and we made the 10 minute drive down to the trails…..After a hit of Oxygen we got out on the trail!
I can’t believe how busy it was….I didn’t realise there was a water park down there and not to mention all the beaches and restaurants and beach volleyball courts! wtf! How did I not know this!
I usually set the pace when I run with Kelly but apparently I can be “bossy” at times with running so I backed off and let her set the speed!
Well I think so!
We had a pre run flex!
Regardless……We set off at a 5:10K pace and I immediately knew that with the heat that Kelly would be hip checking kids at the splash pad to cool down if we didn’t put the brakes on a bit! I debated just letting it play out and hope that we would keep the speed up but figured that we would have a overall better run if we slowed down a bit and were able to finish the whole thing!………So I let her know aka told he to slow down!
The scenery was great and there was so much going on that the first 5k went super fast!
At the turn around point we stopped for a second to get some coconut water into us! The sun was scorching down on us and at this point it was almost 100F in the sun! I was even hot!
We made it back with minimal tears……even managing a decent time of 56min (Not bad considering the extreme heat)
We caught our breath……
Had some of the ice cold water I packed! (You are welcome Kelly!!!!)
Oh Kelly! So dramatic!!!!!
It’s always fun to run with your BFF!
We went to Booster Juice and grabbed a “Spinach is in it” Shake to refuel before setting up for the UFC fight! Kelly and I planned on going out for a drink on a patio so I wanted to have all the food prepped for the boys before we left!
We were able to sit in the backyard for a while before heading out……..Yep we even showered and got dressed in normal people clothes!!!!
Great day! I love Summer!
