This Miami day started with a bike tour at the funniest beachbike I ever tried. It was really nice crusing around at Sobe.
I also toured the Ventian island and to downtown Miami. Among all boats that I spotted I also saw one jumping dolphin. The biking paths here are pretty good here actually but after four hours I had enough and needed to cool off…
so I headed to the beach, got sand between my toes and all over myself in between I enjoyed the turquose water. But the water did not had a cooling effect because it is really, really warm I would guess 28 degrees. Now I am cooling off for real inside before it is time for an evening run followed by dinner and drinks. I have never ever had a boring day in this city!

Miami beach must be the ultimate vacation place. Today I woke up just before seven and since the breakfast started at 8 am I checked out the sunrise and I have to say it was absolutley awsome.
Then my newly found vacation hang out people that I met asked if I wanted to do yoga at the beach with them and I am not the one who is the one so I joined. And loved it.
Then I spent the day at the pool and beach. Just like you are supposed to do while on holiday. Reading books and just chilling out.
But after a day of chillout my legs was getting bored so I went out for todays second run at the beachwalk. That was also awsome except the two kilometers I had to run in the sand. Now I am going for a night out in Sobe like good old times but maybe not a whole night out beacuse I am a bit tired.

Ladies and gents I am back at Miami beach! I got a warm welcome because it is steaming hot down here. 30 degrees in Sweden is not like 30 degrees here. But I do not mind the Florida heat, it is fantastic. Today I have done nothing except walked 60 streets at the beach and tried out the warm water. Eating I have not been doing more since I got fed up over my ears after the flight here.

26 degrees at 8:30 pm – I am just loving the weather here in Stockholm right now. And when it comes to running in the heat I do not mind at all. Tonight I took a 10Ker at Kungsholmen and Pampas and runningwise it did as always when it is warm feels easier. Sometimes I got weird ideas and now I am in a swimming period so I ran with my bikini under my runningwear and when I was finished running I jumped into Mälaren for a bitter sweet swim. If I would have had some kind of talent for swiming I think swimrun could be my thing.

I just cooked a blueberry PB2 soymilk milkshake and for a while I have figured about what differentiates a smoothie from a milkshake. Now I looked it up in the fantastic source Wikipedia and smoothie contains more ingridients like syrup, peanut butter, crushed ice, honey and it is thick and based on that fact I can now conclude that I am a milkshake girl, not a smoothie girl.

This blogpost is written to those of you that think and always comment about that I have so much vacation, that I never work and keeps on asking about how many vacation days I have a year. My answer is 25. In addition to that I work more than 45 hours a week, so don’t worry that I do not work because I do. So now when the majority of Sweden are enjoying the sun, beach, lazy days abroad, BBQ evenings and so on I am spending my days at the office. I am not questioning anyone having four weeks off in a row about how much vacation they have time after time. I am just so sick of hearing this nonsens talk about the amount of vacation that I have every day I have off from August until May – every year. So what have you guys filled your day?
Mine Wednesday outline today was not filled with beachlife, BBQing or a lazy day. I was working. At the office. Inside in an airconned environment. Then I biked to SATS St Eriksbron for a session of Bodypump and a session of Sha’bam. I also did 300 crunches as an end of the workout and since my abs already got a masterworkout yesterday I let you guess how the first 50 felt. But in total I feeling that my training shape is having an upward trend the last ten days. Although I am not focusing on running right now I have a plan to run my 11th marathon in October or November so when I get back from Japan in the end of August I am going to focus more on that.
