Yesterday I had such a great run! I think I just really needed a new mindset and some new shoes. 😉 I did have to stop and adjust my laces on the new kicks a few times but other than that the run felt great. It was actually almost effortless. I was really dreading doing this 6.2 run because it was dreary out and I just didn’t feel like running. I was starting to run out of time so I basically kicked myself out of the house and I’m so glad I did!
I had an entire day of training at one of our bigger salons today and we were treated to lunch made by our boss Vasso. He’s from Greece and he’s a fantastic chef and a seriously talented hairstylist. He made my favorite, meatballs! I had to eat my entire plate full! His salad is always full of delicious greens, dill and a homemade dressing. I said no to an assortment of pastries, garlic bread, pasta and spanakopita. I did however say yes to two black jelly beans. They’re my fav.
After class, which got out early, I did a little shopping at Ulta. I wanted to reward myself for sticking with the Whole30 so I bought myself a little something that I’ve been wanting.
These are some seriously fun colors! After my shopping I hit the bike path where I’ll be running my half-marathon. The training plan I’m following called for a 3 mile run but it was the last nice day for quite awhile so I decided to do my 5 mile run. My stomach was so mad at me for eating those meatballs during my run! It was brutal you guys. A big lesson learned. The bike path is really beautiful and part of it goes around a lake so I was beyond happy to be out there. I always see a lot of animals and this time was no exception.
To hang out with his friends! I kept seeing these chickens running around ahead of me and I was psyched to get some pictures of them. I love chickens! My poor phone died during my run so I don’t have my pace or any pictures of the ducks and geese that I saw. Oh well, next time.
I took a super fun Zumba class later on and when I got home Punky was begging to go for a walk. We did a quick 3/4 mile walk and even managed a few sprints up our beastly hill. Who know my little monkey dog was such a great running coach?
