I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate my 35th birthday morning! As I said in the previous 5 to 5/5 Contest, I was going to start my day with a RUN! So, run at 6 AM I did!
Ran 11km through the roads of Valle Verde, Greenmeadows, and White Plains with good friends JunC, Lit, Jay, Hector, and JunB. Then, we rewarded ourselves with a scrumptious breakfast at Cafe Breton.
After breakfast, I swam 1km alone in a lot less time than I usually do. As in, 20 minutes less (mainly because I didn’t stop to rest as much anymore!) Woohoo…I am officially hooked on swimming!
Lunch followed with swim squad friends Adel & Bic plus more chatting with Jake and our swim coach, Martin.
The second half of the day will be a lot slower. And, it’ll be spent in the company of the family. I’ll probably gain all (or more) of the calories I burned in the morning. But, just like with age, I only have one thing to say: Who’s counting?!
