Thursday Deals + T-rex Arms

The sore throat/stuffy nose/head cold has taken full control of my body so this morning I ran a slow three miler to try to clear out my legs from my hardcore quad workout yesterday that I received from the gym. Tonight I'll try to get in another 3-4 miles to see how I'm feeling. Hoping tomorrow to get in some miles before we take off to head up for the Wine Country 1/2 after work. I am super excited because this weekend I also am having lunch with Mr. R's mom after the race since she is going to come down and meet me after the race because she lives somewhat nearby.

For last night's gym sesh, I was lucky enough to tag along with my cousin for her personal training workout and really got my butt kicked. Anything involving 15 pound weights and balancing on one leg is pretty hardcore when you are working with my T-rex like arms and my balance of two year old. My legs feel sore today but it's a really good sore. I know I'll be ready for this weekend.

15 more days until Hawaii with Mr. R. Please come quickly my dear vacation.

So today I was back in luck finding some sweet deals. For Women, these are some cute Adidas shoes, which are not for running but are fun, funky and a good price! Here is a blue long sleeve mock turtleneck by C9, they have pink, ebony, and white too! If you love spandex like myself, then totally try these Nautilus Low Rise Fitted Shorts, I want a pair! Here's a Nike Long Sleeve Fitted Tee and a Reebok Long Sleeve Fitted Tee for those of you who are still stuck in the cold this week.

For those experiencing hints of the summer months, like myself here is some good sunny wear, Nike Sleeveless Dri Fit Top and this Adidas Sleeveless Top along with these Nike Short Sleeve Dri Fit Top in a plethora of colors. Some more warm weather wear was found in this Nike V-Neck Sleeveless Top and these Nike Black Shorts. If you are racing anytime soon, this lightweight Sport Hill Singlet can come in handy too. For all those who have to take gus, and blox, I would recommend this Brooks Short Sleeve Tee in white with pockets. If pockets aren't for you, then try this Brooks Short Sleeve Tee in black with gray

For the Men, it was also quite the successful week in discounts and deals. Stimulate the economy and raise awareness for Cancer and the Livestrong Community in this Long Sleeve LiveStrong Tee. If you are still stuck in the cold, here are some jackets for you unfortunate people, Columbia Fleece Trail Jacket and the Adidas Response Jacket. Here's a long sleeve tee for you too, just for good measure Long Sleeve Craft Run Tee. To all you sunny birds that have found the warm weather, a Sleeveless Reebok Running tee, Nike Men's Short Sleeve Tee and perhaps even a Reebok Singlet to enjoy your runs in! I also found these Nautilus Indoor Cycle Shorts, read: Spandex for men.

Now since I'm a runner with a firm belief in using a hydration belt for a long run, I have been finding deals on these bad boys too. Here's a Hydration Belt with one bottle and a pocket, another Women's Hydration Belt with two small pockets and a bottle, another super simple Hydration Belt with one small zipper pocket and a bottle. Then another two pocket and bottle Hydration Belt. Then we've got tons of Yoga Mat Bags on Sale including this one, this one, and this one. Here's some sweet yoga mats to put in those yoga bags too a lovely green one, and an odd orange one.

Tomorrow will be race goals and foto Friday!!

Yuck! Sorry to hear you're still under the weather. I can't believe you are still running and working out. When I got sick I crashed for two days--all I did was sleep.

Mr. Pi has a cold too and he ran like 10 miles yesterday. You people are crazy! When my bod says, enough, it means enough! =)

Hope you're all recovered for the wine country 1/2! Fun times!

Denise said...

runsarah said...

Hope you feel better soon! Thanks for the deals, I am considering a hydration belt for the summer.

Candice said...

So sorry that you're still not feeling well. I'm so proud of you for getting your miles in anyway. Way to go girl!

I excited for you to get to go to Hawaii! I've never been, but I've heard it's one of the greatest vacation spots! It'll be here before you know it!

Thanks so much for the encouraging comment. It makes me feel SO much more at ease to hear from people who commute to work and don't mind/like it.

Matt said...

I love your blog! Keep up the good work. It's great to read about other runners and the things they go through!

Marlene said...

T-rex arms and balance of a two year old? Sounds like me!

Glad to hear you had a good workout and hope you feel better soon!

Non-Runner Nancy said...

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

Always look forward to your deals! By the way I ran 2.5 miles! I was so excited! I haven't ran that since freshman year of college! It felt good too! Thanks for keeping me encouraged!

kristen said...

Get better before the weekend!

thanks for posting all the good deals. I think I'll hit target and see if they have any of the mock long sleeves....it's still cold here. (plus, I need to pick up my new shiny hair product!)

christine said...

way to go running twice on a day when you don't feel good! that is inspiring!
which hydration belt do you like? I have one similar to the triangle bottle holder from REI but it bounces so bad when it's full. I hate to waste mine but I'm looking for a new one.

christine said...

thanks! I was wondering about the sweater dress b/c I have those same boots you were wearing in the picture...the gray Target boots...and thought your dress looked so cute with them! I will def. try a belt with more pockets...for some reason I thought if the bottle was at an angle it would decrease the bouncing? but not at all! unfortunately they don't let you fill them up & try it out at the store :)

RunToFinish said...

oh boy you have to feel better for the mom and the race!! hope a good night's sleep cures you!

J said...

as everyone said....feel better :) Glad you got a run in this morning!

The Laminator said...

Yeah, rest up and good luck in your race! Take off from work if you have to. Tell them your blog doctor gave you permission, haha!

Rachael said...

You completely amaze me!!! 3 miles when you're sick-wow! I hope you feel better and let me offer my own heartfelt "WHOOOOOO HOOOOOOO!!!!" For Hawaii :o)! That is so awesome and exciting! I hope that Charles & I can go there one day soon!
P.S. I love your blog! You really inspire me as I set out as a beginning runner! :o)

Niki said...
