A complete rest day. No weights, no cross training, just rest. I had planned on running in the a.m. my clothes were laid out and the alarm was set. When I awoke I felt great, but just felt like I needed to take a rest day. It was hard, I kept staring at my running clothes as they tempted me from the floor, but I didn’t give in.
Somedays, you just need to rest and listen to your body. Tomorrow’s run will be fantastic=)
Monday night for family night we headed to my in-laws. We had another delicious BBQ that included burgers, watermelon, potato salad, and all the other usual suspects. Dessert on the other hand was far from the norm. I present to you, homemade mint oreo cheesecake! The picture doesn’t do it justice, but believe my taste buds, it was delish!
After dinner we headed out to let the boys ride the horses. My inlaws board (and own) horses. J loves them and will sit out there shoving carrots and grass through the fence all day. Well, yesterday his dreams came true and he rode Hollis. Of course he was terrified at first, he’s just a cautious kid and I love it.
We always love playing with cousins and the night couldn’t have ended any better.
Have you ever ridden a horse?
Ever have days where you just know you need to rest?
Mint Oreo lovers out there??
