Regardless of all that, we had a really great time at the lake. Ben had been at the lake a couple times last year, near the end of summer, but he was only a month old, so he didn't really get to enjoy the water and sand and stuff. This year, he was pretty iffy about it the sand and water, but he quickly got used to it:

We had a great time at the lake. We've been going to this lake every year since Preston and I got together. We have always gone out on the boat and Preston and the rest of the people that go out usually stop and have a swim break. I have never, in the 6 years we've been going there, jumped in the water. I swim just fine. I just never had the nerve to jump in that deep of water, that far from shore. But something came over me and I jumped in this time. It felt great! It wasn't much exercise probably, but it felt really nice to be in the cool water and swim around. I did end up getting more sun than I'd hoped. I made sure to spray my feet with sunscreen over and over, because the last thing I needed was another excuse for poor running or even skipping a run.
I didn't get my four miler in today, which I'd pretty much anticipated. I'm planning on trying to make it up sometime, along with the three miler I'd skipped a few weeks back. I'm still feeling good about my training. I have three, three and four miles scheduled this week. A little weird, but I consider this an easy week. I still hate anything more than 2 miles, but after running five miles the other day, three miles sounds pretty great. LOL
After my five miler on Friday, I woke up Saturday morning feeling pretty great. I thought for sure I'd be sore, but I wasn't! That's a good sign, right!? LOL
