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.
