This was my first week of sticking to the plan – sort of… Even though my Sunday run was broken into 2, I was still able to get the miles accounted for! With some new products that I am testing, I was able to make my miles count!
weekly workouts : week 8 ( jan 15)
Since today is my day off from running and the babysitter called in sick, my day was spent hanging out with little man and cleaning up from being gone over the weekend.
Tuesday- 4 miles
With windchill and temps well below 0*F, I decided to head over to the gym. While I was able to get in my run
barely before work, I need to work on my getting out of bed skills… With longer mid-week runs on the horizon, I need to be able to get up and going quickly!
Today's miles were brought to me by @pjuractive 2skin and @rungum • I am trying out #pjuractive #2skin as a #bibravepro! As a fist run, I am impressed and am going to enjoy the lack of chafe in the coming weeks/months (however long it lasts)! Goes on super smooth, doesn't feel think or greasy, and lasted my 4 easy miles without needing reapplication 👍 • And the #RunGum just gave me the pep in my step I needed to make the most of my late start at the gym… #bibchat #pjuractive2skin
One big benefit to today’s treadmill run was that I was able to test out my newest BibRave Pro testing sample – pjuractive 2skin. I mentioned in my post last Friday that I was excited to try this product and so far, so good!
To the gym! It is another COLD day outside…so I wimper my way to the treadmill.
Heading outside for a little bit! The weather is starting to clear up and “warm up”…so heading out!
6 morning miles to start the day • Lots of layers means lots of laundry…good thing I have some @sweatxsport at home to take care of all this gear!! #sweatx #xtheodor • • • #bibchat @bibrave #bibravepro @buff_usa #buffusa @turtlegloves @abi_tuvizo @brooksrunning #thankyourunning #gotoshoe @garminfitness #beatyesterday #gogarmin @spibelt
Due to getting a new phone, backing up the old, not wanting to use the new one (until it was ready), I didn’t get a picture of my crazy pup and I out for a 2 mile jaunt : ) She was sure excited to get out and run with me!
With a slightly late start, I was able to catch the group run as they were heading out! I ran the same loop, and then ran home…coming up a little short from 10, I grabbed the pup and she walked/jogged with me the last little bit.
10 early morning miles • Early miles can be the easiest for my schedule, but the most risky when it comes to being seen on the road. By adding @brilliant_reflective Safety Strips to my gear, I am more confident that I can #beseen! #bebrilliant #bibchat #bibravepro • • • #garminrocks #sweatpink #iamempowered #oisellevolée #runhappy #werunsocial #nuunhydration #2018in2018 #runtheyear2018 #RTY2018 #ffcheckin @garminfitness #beatyesterday @brooksrunning #gotoshoe #thankyourunning #brooksrunning #womensrunning #runitfast #RunSquad #zensah #irun4aidennicole #run #runner #running #training
Sunday- 8 miles
It always seems like Sunday is the most interesting day when it comes to planning my run… I like sleeping in a little, even when we have plans for the day. Well, little man and I were able to get out for a short run in the afternoon – but he didn’t take me far enough. Once the hubs came home from watching the football game, I was able to get out and finish my 8 for the day. I totally almost didn’t get out the second time…too much to eat before heading out and I was convinced that I was going to yack in the bushes… Happy to report that it all stayed down and I was able to run at a comfortable, strong pace for 5 and then bring it home easy : )
2.5 + 5.5 • It ended up being a 2 Run sort of day. Little man directed the route for the first run – and he brought us home after 2.5 miles. A few strong, steady evening miles to finish up the day! • Even though little man brought us home earlier than I expected, his stroller has some major @brilliant_reflective bling! #bebrilliant #bibchat #run #runner #running #garminrocks #FitFluential #sweatpink #iamempowered #runhappy #werunsocial #nuunhydration #2018in2018 #runtheyear2018 #RTY2018 #ffcheckin #beatyesterday @brooksrunning #gotoshoe #thankyourunning #brooksrunning #womensrunning #runitfast #BibRavePro @bibrave #RunSquad #zensah #irun4aidennicole @nathansportsinc #runstrong @tuvizosport @secondskingear @momentumjewelry
