On Saturday something happened that had not happened in a few days… I went for a run!
It was still mega hot out, so I’m having a hard time believing we’re halfway through September! ?
I wore my Mio Link heart rate monitor (wrist based) for the first time in about a year. Even though I was running by feel and keeping it nice and slow (14;42 pace) my average heart rate for this run was 179! ?
I honestly think it had to be the heat + humidity that made my heart rate skyrocket. I’m now super curious about how the weather affects my runs and I’m going to start wearing my Mio every day!
After I got home from my run I treated myself to a hair mask!
I picked this one up at Target for $1.99 in their all natural trial section. I had never heard of this brand before, but they’re cruelty free and the price was right so I gave it a try. I really, really liked the mask! My hair felt super soft and hydrated after use.
You may be thinking “yeah, all deep conditioners leave your hair feeling soft.” I used to think that too, but before I started using cruelty free brands I had bought a big pot of a deep conditioner by Loreal and it made my hair feel like straw ;(.
Sunday was a big day …. first Football Sunday of the season!
I popped a little Dolphins pom pom in my hair, and I put my Dolphins necklace on too before we headed over to Adam’s dad’s house to watch the games.
When I got home I headed to the gym for a very short run and a lifting session. This was a pretty bad idea since I was hungry but didn’t have a snack first so I basically just felt weak the whole workout. By the end I could barely lift my keys ?.
Just kidding, but I definitely didn’t feel strong.
BTW, that sign hanging on the wall above the weights is very strange.
I think the rest of the message may have gotten cut off … ?.
I hope you had a great weekend and that your football team won!
If your football team is the Seattle Seahawks (ahem, Kristen) then I know your team won and I’m not happy about it!!!
Have a great Monday!
PS: Congrats to SAM on completing her first triathlon, congrats to Lisa on running the Erie Marathon, congrats to Karen on completing half marathon #10 in extreme weather conditions and congrats to Cori on a great race at the Parks Half Marathon! (I hope I haven’t left anyone out!!!)
Best part of your weekend?
Do you keep track of your heart rate during runs?
