Took My DOMS to the Dubai Marina Walk & Burj Al Arab

After Monday's strength workout, DOMS hit my legs. So instead of taking my usual Tuesday run, I took an active rest day at the Dubai Marina Walk.

The Dubai Marina Walk offers 7K of public walkways, a perfect place to lunch and keep my sore legs moving.

We took a taxi through the city and were awed by the beautiful architecture and the towering buildings. They were everywhere including surrounding the marina.

We spent about an hour just walking around enjoying the beautiful weather and scenery. It reminded us a lot of the River Walk in San Antonio only bigger, less crowded, and definitely a better breeze!

Over 200 restaurants, all with outdoor seating options, line the Marina Walk. So it took us a while to decide where we were having lunch.

Neither one of us have a wide-range of international tastes, but we do like Mexican food!

I ordered the Chicken Quesadilla, my favorite menu item and one of my non-GF splurges.

And you can't sit outside next to the water without ordering a strawberry daiquiri. It just isn't right.

After lunch we took a taxi to the Burj Al Arab. This is one of the more unusual buildings in Dubai.

We wanted to go up and take pictures, but we couldn't get past the security gate. The only way to get up close is to book a room or a restaurant reservation. See, it's a luxury hotel...and we're cheap :)

How do you relieve DOMS?

Do you prefer indoor or outdoor seating?
