I think I’ve found a new favorite hair ‘do for running! You guys may know that I have issues with my hair while running. If I don’t braid it or put it in a bun it gets very knotty 🙁
Up until today I would put it in a pony tail (or two) and then braid it. But since I slept with braids last night I decided to keep them for my run. The two “down” braids stayed in place and didn’t bounce all over while I was running. It was actually great to not have my sweaty braids hitting me on the back of the head for an hour!
FINALLY! I am picking up Ben from the airport in an hour. He has been gone since last Saturday. This is the longest time we’ve been apart. I’m not super needy, but I basically just spent a week packing by myself…in silence (which may be technically better than talking to myself like a crazy person, but I digress).
This week was very tough and there was a lot of unnecessary eating that happened. I didn’t really want to discuss it on the blog because I realized there was not much I could do to get out of it. Let’s just say I shouldn’t have bought the two following items if I was going to be locked up in my apartment solo for seven days…
I tried my best, but didn’t really succeed. I’m not a fan of beating myself up over it anymore, so I ran about 10 very slow miles this morning and am moving on 🙂
I definitely feel that my runs are slower and harder (TWSS) because I’ve been eating very bad and not getting enough sleep. Totally not worth it, so I’m stopping that crap.
Running Stuff: I love this article from Women’s Health –
I LOVE #17 – Create your own running creed:
"My whole teaching in one sentence is: "Run slowly, run daily, drink moderately, and don’t eat like a pig." –Dr. Ernst van Aaken, renowned German coach
I need to take his advice on eating, but that’s pretty much how I approach running at least!
My running creed changes based on where I am in my world, but right now it’s…
“I’m coming for you…”
Question: What’s your running creed or favorite motivational quote???
