Bad Form

As you read this I am not biking to the beach. I decided not to the bike race for alot of reasons.
1) The weather is 95 degrees
2) I don't know if I could even make it 25 miles in this heat
3) I hurt my knee yesterday.

It was a good thing I didn't register in advance because I somehow ended up hurting my knee. I'm trying to figure out if it was all the squats or the incline walking I did on the treadmill. Either way my something hurt it! It just goes to show you important the right form is.

So that's the deal with that, but yesterday was a pretty fun day. Troy and I headed to he beach for the first time all summer. And for the first time in a LONG time I actually went swimming in the ocean! That's how hot it was that I needed to cool off haha.

All I need is my water and my protein and I am set.
Then it was BBQ time which is a must after a long beach day. We had a little bit of everything for dinner last night. Grilled corn, chicken, asparagus, and a baked potato all were just yummy.
But don't let this photo fool you, I actually had a hamburger along with this! I hardly ever eat red meat (no other reason than I just don't like it), but this hamburger just looked delicious. Troy made it extra crispy and made it his special way by putting two pieces of cheese on it. Mmmmmm!
Not pictured is the half of the jar of nutella I ate devoured :)

Well I'm off to the doctor today instead of the gym! Hopefully they tell me this is nothing at all. Maybe I can tell Troy the doctor said lots of tropical drinks will help ;)

Have a good weekend!

***Do you swim in the ocean? I'm afraid of sharks!
***Whats the best beach you've ever been to? Oceanisle Beach in South Carolina is my favorite because the sand is white, there is a pier so the waves are small, and you can boogieboard.

  1. I hope that you knee gets to feeling better! I have been having major knee issues for the past year or so and it can be so frustrating, so I hope that your pain is very short lived!

  4. Yes - when I am at an ocean area I love to swim in the Ocean :-) I've swam both sides of the Pacific (California and Australia) and the Atlantic. I used to go weekly to the beach when I was in Australia - you would literally have to drag me out - swimming in the waves was so much fun!

    1. Thank you! I bet Aruba is gorgeous. I really want to see Hawaii's black sand beaches one day.

  6. I hope your knee feels better soon! I like going to the beach but am not a huge fan of swimming in it, unless I am snorkeling off a boat! I love seeing all the pretty fish.
