Running and Drone Video!
For today's cool down, I walked my dog, Zoe, at the park behind our house. That's when we ran into my husband who was taking video of the partially flooded park. We had a lot of rain yesterday and the creek next to the park overflowed. The park still hasn't been restored after the last flood that we had!
I flew the drone, too - making it go higher, lower, to the left and right. It was very easy to fly and a lot of fun! The photo posted at the top of this post is one that I took while flying the drone. Here's a video my husband took with the drone of me running with Zoe, our Weimaraner.
Before the walk with Zoe, I had a three part workout. First, I did 30 minutes of strength training using my Sworkit abs & core app. Then I went for a 10 mile run. At first, I thought that the park was still closed after yesterday's flooding so I only ran in my neighborhood. I ended up staying in the neighborhood. To finish up, I went on a 30 minute bike ride. It's much easier to run and then ride rather than doing it the other way around. That reminds me of how tough triathlons are when you ride and then run.
After my walk, I did some weeding and thinning of plants in my front yard. I saw a drone in the sky and waved at it, thinking it was my husband's. Then I walked inside and saw my husband there - he was not out flying his drone after all! Oh well, that drone owner will just think I'm one friendly stranger.
After my workout, I had yogurt topped with bananas, flax seeds, coconut and almonds along with an English muffin with almond butter and honey. I used My Fitness Pal to plan a meal with a 3:1 carbohydrate to protein ratio (4:1 works, too), which was probably important after all of that exercising today.
