I switched things up yesterday, and I didn’t run! My hamstring was feeling off, and my body needed rest due to how I felt during the workout the day before. So, I slept 9.5 hours and went to Plunj later in the morning.
At plunj, you go from the sauna (190°F) for 10-15 minutes to a quick rinse-off shower to the cold plunge (43°F) for 2-5 minutes, then rest for 5 minutes. I always leave feeling so rejuvenated. The hot and cold contrast therapy is amazing.
The sauna was great for my heat training for St. George, and sweating like crazy feels so good.
When I get in the tub I repeat, ‘I can do hard things’ the entire time because it is so hard.
I have to share what Jaci said about using a sauna leading up to her marathon… I am going to go often leading up to the race.
We went to Costco, and when Skye spotted my sister, she went into a full-on sprint.
My sister takes Skye on errands, just the two of them sometimes. They have quite the bond.
My niece came over for toast with honey butter. The better the food is at my house, the more often I see the teenagers;)
Brooke put together an awesome fruit plate to go with our Costco deep dish pizza (in the frozen area) and brussels.
And for dessert… the candy that Knox left next to my bed for me:)
I’ve got a few favorite things this week:
*The Cinnamon Broom from Trader Joe’s. It makes my house smell ridiculously good and goes perfectly with our Halloween decorations.
Looking forward to anything this weekend?
Reading anything great?
Do you use a sauna?
You can only get one item at Trader Joe’s for the rest of your life… what would it be?
-Their sweet potato gnocchi.
