10.27 miles @ 8:13 average. I needed a caffeinated gel before this run. We had a rough night, but having people to meet made it easier to get up and out the door.
The floors are coming along!
Andrew wanted to share his most important marriage tip today—> When I am hangry or tired, he challenges me to play the ‘quiet game’ with him until I get food or sleep. I’m too stubborn to lose the game and it saves him from hearing my grumpiness haha.
Time for some favorite things this week:
*It’s very interesting to me how lululemon has perfected the running sock. They aren’t a specialized running company, yet their materials and socks are better than most of the socks from running-based companies. I’m guessing a blister has never been created while wearing the Power Stride.
*I’m unsure how Andrew feels about these, but I am obsessed. I loved overalls as a tween, and I love wearing them again now. I got them here for the win. I’ve worn them day after day after day. They feel so right. They also have a less baggy version here that is so cute too.
*Brooke has me hooked on hair claws, and we got these cheap neutral ones from Amazon. We’ve both been wearing them daily.
*I just received my race bottles. I love these little bottles so much. They fit into side pockets of running shorts (these, these, these, and these are my favorite shorts for this), and I don’t even feel them. I’ll bring these for the beginning of the marathon to get in some liquids in the beginning. These bottles save me big time all summer too.
What do you have going on this weekend?
How do you carry your hydration on the run if you do?!
Rachel brought up yesterday that it is weird that she washes her dishes before putting them in the dishwasher, and I do the same thing… What about you? Wash them before or put them straight in?
Does low fuel freak you out or is it the norm for you?
