I hope everyone had a nice weekend!

Saturday I went kayaking with my friend on the Hudson River. We didn’t really go very far. It was kinda windy, and we got out of the river just in time to see whitecaps due to the increased wind gusts.

Sunday was pitiful. I’m sure my Canadian friend will laugh when she sees this news. Guess what we had the displeasure of seeing?

Upon the advice of a friend, I decided to do some intervals today.

ran slowly up to 12 minutes and 30 seconds,
(ran fast for 30 seconds, then ran slow for 3 minutes) 5 times,
