I know what you are thinking right now:
‘Why in the world would Janae choose to use a bright red filter on her photo? She sure is a strange one.’
No filter was used in the below picture. This is just what happens to my skin when I go running in 20 degree weather. With wind.
4 layers. No big deal. We went on the bike trail and did an easy/flat 6.75 miles.
I actually really love how my body feels once we get a mile or two into the run when it is cold outside BUT my silly fingers. They just love feeling like pins and needles because they get so cold. I am ALWAYS on the hunt for the world’s perfect running glove but I have not found them yet.
I had two layers of gloves on this morning and what always helps when my hands get really cold is for me make a fist with my hand inside of the gloves. I don’t know why this works better than those finger slots on my gloves but it does. I do love mitten gloves too… I just need to find mine.
THE BEST THING TO DO TO KEEP YOUR HANDS WARM WHILE YOU RUN.
These. I just ordered my box. Trust me on this one.
After a winter run I always crave a bowl of oatmeal with ab and bananas. I make my oatmeal so incredibly hot in hopes that it will warm me up.
After bfast we went to go see Dr. Bennett. I still go in about 2 times a month to get adjusted and to continue to work on any weak areas or to have him work on anything that is hurting. Today he unjammed my heel to help a tendon that was bugging me on my foot… from when I fell a few weeks ago on the trails.
I have had some locals really want to go in and get help with injuries/weak areas from Dr. Bennett…
SOOOOO he is offering a $110 discount off of the first visit! The 1st visit is 1 hour long and it includes: Consult ($55), Full Body Orthopedic and Performance Exam ($165) and 2 Units Performance Muscle Reactivation Treatments ($110 and this is what has REALLY helped my running and injuries).
Just tell them that you are an HRG reader and they will give you the $110 discount. PS if you are a current patient (he has already helped a few readers a lot to get back out running pain free)—> buy 3 muscle units and get 1 free!
Next was a trip to the indoor park at the mall because there is no way we are going to any outdoor parks for a very long time.
While we were there I had to stock up on my favorite lip gloss from Victoria Secrets. I go through these at an alarming rate.
And then we came home and had pb & j and a turkey burger salad. I will spare you a picture of the salad …
What type of gloves do you use? Any tips or tricks on keeping your hands/feet warm? What about hats/headbands?
What type of lip gloss/chapstick/lipstick/other do you use?
Are you an oatmeal person? What kind of toppings do you love?
Do you live in a flat area? Hilly? Or can you easily find flat and hilly routes in your area?
