Two braids are better than one.
Workout: Run 5 miles/ 40:50 minutes
Today was my first day at my new job. I am a teacher, which accounts for all the time I had over the summer to workout. Between starting my new job, getting used to having to set an alarm, powering through the heat, and cat parenting, the posts may slow down over here. You’re welcome.
Believe me, I am not complaining about going back because I know that I’ve been lucky to be able to devote so much time to myself and my fitness goals this summer. I also know I earned it, in every sense.
I am also lucky that my friend Patrick is becoming my regular Monday night Louisiana Running Company Run Group running buddy. I was a little worn out and not sure I wanted to go, so I was grateful to Patrick for texting me to make sure I was still going. Patrick is a much faster runner than me but he swears that’s ok because I hold him to a pace he can maintain over a longer distance and tonight he especially pushed me to go faster than I thought I could. I had no idea how hard we were running until we finished.
I love braids. I wore a braided headband to work today and then just braided the rest of my hair back into my usual workout braid. Just trying to channel a little Sanya Richards-Ross.
What’s your go-to hairstyle? I’m a braids girl all the way.
