I keep seeing great posts of other runners favorite things so I thought I would share some things I am loving right now.
Yesterday we had a touch of spring. I actually felt like I was getting hot on my run and I was in short sleeves and a skirt. I think I must be a little acclimated to winter since it was only 48 degrees when I got back from my run and 43 degrees when I left.
I did an easy 4 miles at a 9 min/mile pace and then debated on doing some intervals, but since I had a dream Wednesday night that I was slow, I felt like I had better fit in some speed work. I did 8x400 intervals with a 400m rest interval in between. My slowest two were my first two and the fastest two were the last two. It felt good to finish strong and feel like I good have done a couple more.
We dyed Easter eggs in the afternoon since the kids only had a half day of school and were home early. It was a good thing too because right before my little sister and her kids showed up to dye eggs my daughter was going into meltdown mode because the finger nail polish she put on wasn't drying fast enough...
so get to the point already, what are some of my favorite things right now?
My half zip pullover that I got from Gap Fit. I previously never would have thought of Gap when looking for workout/running clothes but this pullover is the bees knees. It is so soft and stretchy. I am also in love with the color. Obviously this is an older pictures since I am wearing the Pure Flow 2s in them and I took those shoes back.
I am also loving my Altra Torins. I am trying to remember to alternate wearing them with my other shoes, since they are a zero drop and I haven't worn zero drops before, but they just really feel good to run in!
I also picked up these lip butters at a local health food store and am in love with both flavors. They are made in Montana even.
