Yesterday morning’s run was a flop. The workout was 9 miles with the splits of: 2 x 7:45, 2 x 7:30, 2 x 7:00, 2 x 6:50 and the last one at a 7:45. I hit the times but I took 4 twenty second breaks. FOUR. I was a little frustrated and upset with myself that I was taking breaks but then I remembered….it’s just running. I run because I love it and we all know that we aren’t going to have perfect workouts every time we run. It happens.
The best part about my run was the outfit, that is for sure. It was hot out. Like really hot.
This may not be the fanciest running outfit but it did the one job that I needed it to do…to keep me as cool as possible. The Brooks D’lite Mesh Tank is by far the lightest running top I own and it pretty much feels like you aren’t even wearing a top because it is so breathable. The D’Lite Racer 2.5″ Shorts are perfect for summer. They are also CRAZY light and they may be short but that is what I need for hot weather running.
After Brook’s bath she watched some Wimbledon with the Billy on the couch.
And then Brooke went over to a Friend’s house and swam and I used a gift certificate that Billy gave me for Mother’s Day. I had a few inches cut off from my hair (even though I was actually tempted to cut it really short), had a pedicure and then a massage. A massage.
Time for me to login to Quicken so that I can figure out how to make a weekly massage part of our budget.
Dinner was at San Pedro Square with friends. This place is the best place to go with a group of people because they have like ten different restaurants in one huge building so everyone can get what they want.
Billy and I split this burger (I ate a huge bowl of cereal right before we left) and it was delicious for one main reason—> the bun was a Hawaiian Sweet Roll. Now that is a good idea (but a donut bun would have been even better).
And then there was some ice cream at home because I don’t know how to end a day without it.
Anyone have some BAD haircut/hair color stories? Who does your hair?
How are you surviving summer running? Any tips for running in the heat? (I am working on a post about this and I would love to include your tips)
Do you ever find yourself taking running too seriously?
Favorite weekend day— Saturday or Sunday? Why?
