Just an Ordinary Tuesday, Or Was it?

Today was just an ordinary Tuesday.

OK, not really because....I went for a run!

I LOVE SAYING THAT! Any day that I get to run now will be anything but ordinary.

I had sunshine, the water and a nice breeze...it was pretty much perfect. I didn't even mind the sweat getting in my eyes.

But let me back up a bit.

mrC got home from his trip in the middle of the night. While he slept in, I did my daily yoga session - you guessed it, more vinyasa flow. Does anyone else feel strange wearing shorts to do yoga or is it just me?

Since I was nice and warmed up (and feeling motivated) I got day 2 of 30 burpees out of the way. I've decided to track my time to see if there is any change over the 30 days. For the record: 2:28 and I burned 15 calories.

By this time, mrC was up and moving, so we headed out for our run. We mixed up our route a bit to do more on the flat promenade along the water. We did a couple of out and backs before heading up the big hill to our apartment for a total of 3.58 miles.

It's getting warmer around here, so I made sure to bring along some water and I love that I don't have to carry my Simple Hydration Water Bottle. See how nicely it hooks onto my shorts? Even this pair from Lululemon that has a no dig waist band can hold the bottle.

After our run, we took a cool down walk to pick up a full length mirror that I found on Discovery Bay's Facebook Moving & Selling page. It even has a nice little shelf on the bottom for the VIP shoes. I'm wearing the J.Crew finds from yesterday. This tee and these shorts. Plus my favorite recovery flip flops from Oofos.  PS - all my links are affiliate links and if you click on them I earn a few pennies, and you are not obligated in any way. I promise.

Later, I received a delivery from FedEx ---> I'm a Wearsafe Running Ambassador. I'm super excited to share this safety technology with everyone as I hike, bike and run around Hong Kong.

Before dinner we went for a walk and picked up dessert. I'm happy mrC likes these gluten free brownies as much as I do.

For dinner it was Taco Tuesday!!

What are your perfect running conditions?
Anything making your day extraordinary?
Are you a Taco Tuesday fan?


  1. Not a taco Tuesday fan here. Perfect running is spring and fall....temps in the 50s~60. today I'm getting a new fridge. We got back from vacation Saturday night, fridge went out Sunday!

    1. Hope you're new fridge is glamorous...that usually takes the edge off having to make such a big purchase, right? I love those temps for running too. It's already in the 70s here!

  2. I am a Taco Tuesday fan but sadly I am the only one in my house that is so I tend to get vetoed a lot!! My favorite time to run is in the Fall once releases it's grip...when the air is crisp but there is still all the sunlight at night!!

    1. I'll have tacos with you Nancy :) Fall running in New England is also beautiful with all the changing colors. Definitely a great time of year. Miss that part, but not the early snow storms (or late ones like you just had!)

  3. Yay for more running! I've never heard of Wearsafe before - what's it all about?

  4. Wow, 30 burpees in a row - man I HATE burpees. They are probably my least favorite. I always feel I am flailing all over the place just trying to do them.

    1. Not a fan either. It was that whole "most effective exercise" thing that got me ;)


I love comments!
