A Mom Day

Happy Friday! We had the best day yesterday!!  It was perfection and so was the weather!

I got up early to do a lower body Tabata Boot Camp workout and then took to the streets for a couple of miles to test out these shoes that were sent to me by Skora!  I only ran two miles and the weather was better.  My run was a bit slower. I paced out around 7:35 for the two miles. I’ve never run in a minimal shoe before and it was definitely different.  I’ll be trying them out again when my legs aren’t so fatigued but I did enjoy the feeling.  Have you ever run in Skora shoes?  Thoughts?

After I cleaned the house for the cleaning lady of course, Sara and I went out to walk to Starbucks.  We went to the one that was further from the house and enjoyed a great two mile walk each way!

I had a client coming at 10 to train with her son so the kiddos played while we worked!  It actually works out really nicely!  Afterwards, Sara and I played outside before we met my brother-in-law at his country club where we enjoyed a private afternoon on the beach.  I’m not kidding, the beach doesn’t open till Memorial Day but that didn’t stop us at all!

Life's a Beach!

What's a day at the beach without ice cream?!?!

After a few hours of dipping our toes in the sand and water we headed over to pay a visit to the Hubs while he was coaching and running a track meet!

Practicing the baton pass!

Our day ended with a friend, more bubbles and a wonderful girls dinner/play date!

Busy but truly amazing!!  According to my UP, I logged 19,433 steps.  Just about 9.1 miles!  It was just what I needed!

My day ended with the series finale of The Office!  I’m bummed it’s over.  It’s lost a bit of humor since Steve left but I still loved it!  Anyone else watch it?

I’ll be back tomorrow with one more giveaway before I take off next week!  Don’t forget about the Vega One giveaway going on!  There will be three winners winning a case of Vega One Bars!

Have a wonderful day everyone.

    I’ve missed this whole season of the Office – I guess I will wait for the DVD version and have a marathon session!!
    That is a lot of steps in one day – great job!!

    I’m scared to even try minimus style shoes at this point, since I’m too impatient to relearn my running and start slower and shorter distances.

    And the photos look great! Private beach? nice!! Happy Friday!

    those Skora shoes seem interesting. I’ll be interested to hear how you like them on longer runs. I haven’t done much minimalist running either, but am interested in exploring different options.

    On a different note, I love days like the one you’ve described. There have been some random days where days when school was out and I took the day off that have made some of the best memories for me and my kids.

  6. That does look like a fantastic day at the beach! I have never heard of those shoes. One of my coworkers is trying to adjust to a minimalist shoe and having trouble. As a PT, I have a hard time with the concept of them, but you’ll have to let me know what you think!
