I got up this morning and went for a run.
And based on the pattern of the last several days this is huge.
I almost talked myself out of it since it would mean taking Annelise to VBS in a post run hot mess state but I decided not to listen to me. Who really cares if I'm a hot mess anyway? (Although I did freshen up a bit and blow dried my sweaty hair so as not to be too scary.
But because I love y'all, just for kicks, here I am in my full hot mess state:I like this green top but it annoys me when I first start out as it rides up and threatens to expose my muffin top, so I'm constantly tugging it down (y'all are so welcome), yet it eventually calms down and stays put once it's all nice and sweaty.
I wish I was a lean gazelle of a runner, but alas, I am not.
Who ate ice cream yesterday? And went to IHOP for supper? Was it me?
In years past I've had to run up and down our street and side street to build up miles, and honestly going back and forth is boring. Thanks to the new-ish development (which is still under construction) near us I've been able to branch out and can in get 3-4 miles without going back and forth, which is quite refreshing.
I usually put a bottle of water in our mailbox which always worked in the past since I was running by it regularly. Now though, since it's hot even at 6:00 am, I think I'm going to have to start wearing my fuel belt again since I'm hardly ever going by our mailbox. It seems kind of silly to me to wear it on a shorter run (3-5 miles) but I think I'm getting a bit dehydrated because I'm really draaaaagging at the end. I guess it's better to look like a goober than to be dehydrated.
My goals this week are: 1.) to run at least four days; 2.) try to break my self-imposed glass ceiling of four miles, go for five or six once 3.) get back on track with my P90X workouts --I only did one last week, pretty sure that hardly counts; 4.) don't skip YogaX and 5.) eat cleaner. Again. But after tonight (more on that soon).
Do y'all go out in public in a hot mess state sometimes?
How do you handle hydration on your outdoor runs?
