|A snapshot of Secret Beach in Austin, TX|
The labor day weekend was warm in Austin, with daily highs hitting triple digits. It made me very lethargic and hermit-like during the middle of the day. Boyfriend was out of town, so I was flying solo as the single mom to Bailey. I got up very early each morning (by 6am) and headed out for my run and then did not emerge for more exercise until the evenings, when I took Miss Bailey on walks. If I went out during the day, it was errands that utilized the air conditioned car. The exception was a trip to Secret Beach with Bailey on labor day. We went with her friend Raisin. Secret Beach is a stretch of sandy shoreline along the Colorado River in East Austin. It is very hipster (perhaps you already got it from the name) and people will bring coolers and beach blankets and hang out. It is also great for dogs who like to run around, splash and generally be hooligans.

Anyways, here is my week thus far:
Monday: 8.51 miles over hills, 90 minutes of flag football
Tuesday: off! Boyfriend returns :)
Wednesday: 8.16 miles, 90 minutes of flag football
Thursday: 2km swim
Wish me some cool, dry weather!
