Watermelon Mint Salad aka My Favorite Way to Eat Watermelon

Hey, hows your week going?  I love short weeks, so excited that it is already Thursday.  Last night I had planned to go to Turbokick, but for some reason a run on a track was really speaking to me.  So I headed over to the high school near my house, did about a mile track run and finish up with about 20 minutes of stadiums.

In case stadiums were not a torture inflicted upon you by high school coaches (I kid, they are pretty fun and hurt so good, kind of like burpees) you basically start at one end, running up and down the stairs, before shuffling over to the next set of stairs.  They are great cardio and really get the glutes and quads burning.

Afterwards I was feeling overheated and tired and in the mood for a big bowl of cold watermelon.  Watermelon is so refreshing and is definitely one of my favorite summer fruits.  It is awesome on its own, but I thought I would share with you my favorite way to eat it.

  1. I keep meaning to pick up some mint – I just bought a side salad not too long ago that had mint in it, and it just woke it up!

    I remember having to run the stadium stairs when I played field hockey in high school and college. 😀
