I had a hard time getting my butt outside for a run today. It might be the heat or just general laziness but I was finally able to convince myself.
It was hot. It was sticky. Halfway through UPS brought me a present that was perfect for a hot, sticky run.
I ordered three from Tina at Carrots’N Cake through Open Sky. Not only does my hair get in my face while I run, I am a heavy sweater and there is nothing fun about sunscreen dripping into your eyes.
After my run. (Yes, I am awesome at taking pictures of myself. Look how hard I am concentrating)
Worked like a charm and would highly recommend.
Sadly, during my run I started to get a pain in my foot and a slight twinge in my knee. Decided to call it and book myself a date with this guy.
I have not used it in awhile and I should be using it.
I think I may need new shoes.
Have you gotten any new running accessories recently?
First I would like to thank all the people who come to work sick and proceed to cough on, touch, and generally contaminate the kitchen, bathroom, and air around their desks. There was a nasty stomach bug circulating the office that I had the pleasure to catch and it sidelined me for a few days. Lesson here is to stay home if you are sick.
On to more pleasant news, last week I bought a foam roller. I have read how great they are and what a must have but trying is believing. I had no idea how tight and knotted my legs were until giving the roller a whirl. It is as if my muscles are looser and it feels as if it has improved my running. Not sure why I waited so long to purchase one but am so glad that I did.
Can anyone recommend an intermediate circuit training DVD? I have done the 30 Day Shred for a few months now and am getting bored. Looking for a new challenge.
