is the day after a long weekend not so hard?? it just makes me want an even longer vacation. i spent the entire day yesterday on a boat on the lake with my brother and his friends, and today is just killing me. anyone with me?!
ONE: running. such good news on this front: i finally got over my “can’t seem to run more than a half marathon” streak i’ve been sitting on all summer and knocked out 15 miles on Saturday morning! wooot! if you follow me on IG (@glitterstruck), well, then you already knew that. it felt so good and i was so darn happy about this (hilly) run.
one thing i need to do better at, though, is fueling during my runs. i honestly am the worst at this and don’t pay any attention to it at all — i didn’t take a single shot block or salt pill or add electrolytes to my water or do a darn thing besides drink a lot of water (i stop at gas stations along the way to refill my little bottle). i hate the feeling of having anything in my stomach when/before i run, but i know i need it for the longer ones (especially when it’s so hot & sunny), so i have to be more diligent about this.
i felt really good on Sunday so got in a 5-6 miler then as well: slow & steady, but pain-free and just all-round enjoyable. i’m really happy with how my runs went this weekend upstate, especially since it was just the loveliest weather. i didn’t even mind running all those hills for once!
all i can say is, it’s about time and i have no idea what took me so long to chop it. who knew that all these years, there was a short-haired girl inside me dying to be let out, and i thought i was destined to always have long hair?! i love it.
for all you upstate NYers looking for the best stylist, go see Hannah @ Studio D in Clifton Park. not only is she one of my dear friends and the sweetest girl, but she’s so talented.
hope you had fabulous Labor Day weekends, friends!
What’d you do this weekend? i swam & boated & saw family and friends & ran ran ran & cut my hair & relaxed.
Runners: How’s training/running going? Any good runs this weekend?
How do you fuel for long runs? help me. i’m the worst.
