    Looks like a fun morning! While I’m not training for a HIM, I’m looking for new cross-training activities while I train for the Chicago Marathon. I’m thinking about adding swimming to the mix!

    I absolutely HATE the heat. I’m currently training for a half in September, and already am hating the heat and humidity here in Ontario.

    Everytime I want to NOT run, I think of you guys in Florida who are rocking your runs in heat WAY worse than here.

    Canadians eh? We complain about the cold, then we complain about the heat! πŸ™‚

    Looks like you guys had fun! Good job on the swim and run.

    We are workout twins today – I also drove over an hour for a group open water swim, and did a 3 mile run!

    I plan to move away from where I am now which happens to be close to my parents house. I couldnt imagine being away from my family but I guess it gets easier!

    Enjoy your Saturday πŸ˜€

    Swimming in open waters always freaks me out… I hate thinking that there might be other creatures swimming down there.

    But your morning sounds so fun and active. I think I’ll go make myself a strawberry PB smoothie right now!

    We had a bit of a heat wave in Toronto this week but today cooled down and made the weather perfect for running πŸ™‚ I rocked my long run!!

    I absolutely love LUCKY. I mean I’ve never met the guy, but his website is awesome and organizing this, offering bathrooms, patches, stickers, etc for free is seriously one of the coolest things I’ve heard in a while.

    Makes me want to buy a waterfront home and have this. πŸ˜‰ In my dreams….

    Mmm, I love variations of “morning glory” muffins – the carrot in them is key!

    Looks like a fun morning of workouts. πŸ™‚

    I think getting in that water is an accomplishment in and of itself! Nice job on the swim.

    I hate running in the heat! It gets really hot here in the late summer and fall, so I am trying to soak up the June gloom before it’s too hot to run outside.

    Awesome job! Good thing you could get used to the water after the first lap around. I guess that bit of info would help people who are planning to do a tri without testing out an open lake swim.

    Is the water shallow enough to stand?

    Do you take rest days? When was your last one?

    One of the major benefits of living in Florida. I’m pretty sure the last place you want to swim in Washington, DC is in the Potomac… so we just stick to the pools. I hope y’all had a blast.

    Who’d of thought— PB&J Smoothie… yummy!

    Here in WA I ran this morning and the temp was in the 50’s. I wish it would get up in the 80s and 90s here in the summer but that really only happens a handful of times.

    I live right outside Boston and the two whole foods I have gone too don’t sell smoothies. I have WF Smoothie envy.

    Looks like a great morning for swimming! The idea of open-water swimming gives me the chills…the dark, murky water, and the depth! I took years of swimming lessons in small, inland lakes…but it’s been SO long since I’ve done it!
    Have a great weekend, girl!

    I don’t like swimming very much (ok at all) and swimming in a lake freaks me out! I don’t like not being able to see what is lurking under there. πŸ™
