Just another run where all I could think about was finding a pool that I could jump in…
I started nice and early on Saturday but that sun came up fast and strong so I switched things up a bit from my normal routine.
I did 8 of the miles outside and then did the speed portion on a treadmill. It was already 90 degrees at this point outside and I just couldn’t talk myself into trying speed at that temperature.
It had been over two years since the last time I did speed on a treadmill! I’ve done easy miles since then but it was fun to get it done at a gym… I even did some squats and lunges afterwards!
My friends were doing a 3 mile tempo back at home so I did the same in St. George. I tried to get in some hills outside during the first 8 miles and then the 3 miles @ 6:16 pace. That pace was faster than what I did my 5k a few days before but it felt so much easier because I had a fan pointed on me while running in an air-conditioned gym.
I have a very good feeling about all of our fall races coming up… We are going to fly after running in the heat.
When you don’t pack any gels and need some fuel… These are excellent.
While I’m talking about food while traveling, I found these at Target and they are awesome. I add two eggs to them and you just put them in the microwave and a minute later you have a tasty egg scramble. At home I would much rather make my own but it is perfect for traveling or if you are in a hurry and it’s full of protein.
Skye has been really into coloring lately. I’m a little shocked over how good she is at staying in the lines.
She has noticed that all of her teenager cousins wear socks with their sandals these days so she wants to do the same.
We jumped in the car for another road trip…
For these longer road trips I will sometimes just bring the pump and pump a bottle and give it to him while we are driving so that we don’t have to stop. It has worked out nicely so far.
Beck’s first time to California!
Somehow the hotel life is going better than normal…
I’ve had a few people ask me how I am doing my hair now so let’s talk about that. I was really worried I would regret cutting my hair and that it would take a lot more time to do it but I feel like it takes half the time now! It is plenty long enough for a ponytail still on the days I don’t have time to touch it and I am pretty positive I will keep it this length forever:)
Here is a video on how I am attempting to curl it… It’s a short video but it shows how my hairdresser taught me to curl it!
*I use the 1-1/4” curling iron HERE!
*THIS Olaplex is a must to beat frizz and to help my hair feel smooth and soft (I put it on when my hair is still wet).
*I use this serum to add some shine and fight damage from heat (I put it on when my hair is still wet and the bottle lasts forever).
*I wash my hair on average every four days. I just blow dry out the sweat after a run and usually, the last day before I wash it I wear it in a ponytail.
*These are my favorite ponytail holders on the planet. I will never stray from them because they don’t leave creases in my hair and they are so comfortable (it’s all my girls want to use now too).
*This is the hairspray I use and love!
While we are talking about hair, my hair is growing back after losing a few chunks of it after having Beck!
