Red is not my color...

So, again, SF was hit with a wave of summer this weekend. As gorgeous as it was 2 weekends ago, it was about 10 times better this weekend. It looks like it's shaping up outside to be another beautiful day. And poor Blondie is in Land of Cheese, where the weather was not cooperating. Sigh. Poor Blondie.

I met up with my running partner (RP) on Saturday morning for a jaunt through GG Park. I wore my running pants (they come to just below my knees) and a short sleeved t-shirt, and was *sweating* by the time I got there. Which wouldn't be such a big deal, but it's only a mile walk and it's all downhill. We did 4.22 miles and we made pretty good time. I was pretty happy about how well we did.

After I got back from the run, I did a bit of work and then I had the most wonderful Saturday ever. I know you are thinking "wow, what did she do??? she must've done something fabulous!" and I'm here to tell you - it's true, I did do something fabulous. I opened up the windows in the apartment, laid down on the couch, and didn't move for the next 12 hours.

Sunday I ended up working for several hours in the morning, and then drug my lazy ass down the hill to the gym and over to the grocery after. I was starting my routine from the day before when Shelbs called. We ended up going out to Pacifica and crashing out on the beach for awhile. Which leads to the title of the post - I ended up lying on my stomach most of the time, and the back of my legs and shoulders are FRIED. And they HURT. People - I look ridiculous. Luckily, the burns are in places I can cover up, but I know what I look like underneath my clothes (thank your lucky stars *for whatever reasons* that you don't know that feeling).

Today was running day in bootcamp and I rocked it out. I actually got sent with the fast part of the beginner's group for a much longer run than the other half - this is the first time that has happened. I even managed to keep up with them. Of course, they chatted they entire time and I kind of panted in their direction, but hey, I did it!!!
