I have some things I would like to share with you. Things that I am loving and not loving.
I’m not loving cardio lately. I don’t know if I’m in a running funk (for a year and a half!?) or if its because I’m dehydrated (I’ve cut my alcohol drinking waaaaay back) or its because I’m fat (I’m trying to eat 70% clean and move more and joining DietBets.) Or if its just too hot to run at a good pace in the sun. But cardio has just been hard. Not. Loving. It.
Up and at’em early this morning for some hardio running. Slept awfully well last night. So we will see what my leggies can do today! #boise #boiserunner #likeagirl #livingintv #run #runner #runnergirl #running #runnerscommunity #runnersofinstagram #run365 #halfmarathon #halfmarathon #womenshealth #whstrong #teamwr #teamsparkle #womensfitness #womensrunningcommunity #womensrunning #thisisboise #werunsocial #divasrunning #fleetfeetmeridian #worlderunners #runforit #sweatpink #girlsgonesporty #fitfluential @womensrunningmagazine
I bought this Brooks hat in 2011 or 2012 when I first started becoming more conscience about my running gear. It was never really my favorite hat as it never kept my hair in place. I could never tighten up the back tight enough for it to stay on my head if it got windy or a big truck drove by and delivered a gust of wind. I wore it for the last time this week and had to wash it when a wind gust blew it off my head and into a wet gutter. It needed a bath so I threw it in the washer as I have done many times before. This time, it didn’t make it out as it should have. It was a small load of laundry too. The bill ripped off the 2 sides. Oh well. #goodbye
But things that I AM loving – I am loving the new Q5 Fitsoks. I am not joking when I say these are now my favorite socks. The are slightly compressive, slightly padded and come in colors that match all of my current running outfits. I highly recommend you get these at your local running store or online here.
I have found my new favorite sockies. I love all of @fitsok socks I have tried but these, These Q5’s are my new running BFF. I like that they are not white and in colors that match the pinks and blues and blacks that I am always wearing. They only white clothes I wear are socks so no point bleaching a load of a few pairs of socks. They are slightly compressive where us runners need it and have a slight amount of padding where us runners need it. Seriously I love these. 💟
I am being meh about my diet but trying to log in calories most days of the week. I have a lot of protein powders in the house and have been trying to drink a shake post-run. I need to chew my way through some of these so I can buy ones that I want to drink. I want to buy more Slap Nutrition products because they are mix easy and So Good. Since I’ve cut my drinking down (I’m not wineing like as I was) I know my electrolytes are skewed. Plus a few years ago, there was an Endurance Planet episode about magnesium. So, I finally bought some Slap Magnesium and take it an hour or 2 before bed. I sleep better but I don’t know if its really working. But I don’t think its hurting. So, I guess I’m loving it.
I’m kind of a slacker when it comes to supplements. I first heard about the benefits of magnesium on some ultra running podcast a few years ago when I was training for my first 50K. I should have ran (literally should have ran) out and bought it. But I’m a slacker. It’s taken me over 3 years to give this supp a try. If @slapnutrition didn’t put out this product, this slacker would have never bought it! Thanks @slapnutrition.prez I’m looking forward to trying it tonight! #ballz #supplements #gymlife #workout #recovery #fitness #sweatpink #girlsgonesporty #fitfluential #myffcheckin #ultrarunning #runchat #ultrachat
