Reflections: while exercise is great, and an indisputable passion of mine, it was great to enjoy many of the other wonderful things life has to offer. S and I spent the morning at the coffee shop and then headed to a friend’s house for some iced tea and good conversation. The lack of physical activity zapped my appetite – more than anything, I was not looking for snacks 2 hours after having a meal. I spent most of the afternoon blanching peaches, and I even had time to meet a friend at a local bar. Alcohol is not a temptation for me, so I happily sipped on my lemon iced tea while my friend guzzled his Long Island Iced Teas – to each his/her own…

Sleep: good.

OVERALL: looking forward to a second day of rest
