Talk about a great morning for a run. Sure, it was hot, sticky, and – you know – Florida at the end of May, but it was also quiet, peaceful, and my mind was just in it. I like this whole no-pressure-run thing. 🙂
Unfortunately, I experienced my first hiccup with my MOTOACTV watch at mile 2.96 (I know it was mile 2.96 exactly because that’s what my watch read for the next mile). For some reason it stopped tracking my distance (or route on the map), but the timer kept going. I still had a mini satellite on the top bar, so I know it still had GPS signal (I think?), but I’m not sure what happened. It also wouldn’t let me power the watch completely down to restart it and moving from screen to screen felt like there was a bit of a delay. Odd. I’m going to google to see if there’s another way to reboot it or my plan B is to just let the battery die out on it’s own and force a restart that way. We’ll see.
I finished my morning workout with Tone it Up’s “Goddess Workout” I’m not sure I was a fan of this workout. They tried to give it a yoga influence, but in the end I think I would just rather do yoga.
In the mix:
- 1 mango
- 1 tablespoon honey peanut butter
- 1/4 cup plain chobani
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
I really enjoy the mango + peanut butter combo, they complement each other nicely.
I had some cinnamon pita chips on the side.
I just picked these up at the local health store yesterday (the damn sample display won me over!). I like how they’re not overly sweet and have a bit of a grainy texture to them.
Adult Summer Camp
My friend posted this on his Facebook the other day and it made me laugh.
Sign me up!
When I was a kid, summer camps were essentially adventures our parents would send us on to learn something new. However, we were so busy having fun, that we forgot we were learning anything. They were a nice little escape from parents and reality, and a chance to make new friends.
In middle school I attended a Sea World summer camp that took us from Orlando to the Keys. We slept at Sea World one night (with the manatees – very cool), then took a big bus down to the keys where we stayed for a week snorkeling and learning about marine life. In high school I attended a summer camp in Pennsylvania where we spent the week learning to kayak (once upon a time I could do a full roll) and scuba dive (by the end of camp I had earned my certification). I also attended summer cheer camps with my cheerleading squad at the local universities and was a coach for the one our own squad led for the younger kids in the area.
If I were to attend a summer camp now, I would love for it to go along the same themes. Maybe taking a week somewhere for “Triathlon Camp” wouldn’t that be fun? 7 days of training followed by arts and crafts, dance parties, and “bug juice”? 😉 Or even an art camp! I would love to just go somewhere and sketch again. Of course, “Spa Camp” would be good too. 😉
Did you attend summer camps when you were a kid? If you were to design an adult summer camp, what would you have it be?
