Running Gear Wish List

17 Jan

After reading Peanut Butter Finger’s post about her favorite workout gear, I started thinking about items that I would like to add to my arsenal of running gear. Don’t get my wrong…I love going out for a run without my iPhone and just listening to the sounds around me and concentrating on my breathing but having some new gear can definitely spice up a run. Here’s a list of some of the items I’ve been eyeing lately and may be adding to my closet before I gear up (fingers crossed) for my first half marathon this summer!

No Time For Being Lazy

6 Oct

…unless it’s this morning and you’re me. I have had the absolute slowest start this morning and getting myself out of bed this morning was on the verge of impossible. I ended up working on some homework last night until almost 1:30 AM without even realizing it so this morning was not fun. I think I’ve been gradually waking myself up over the past two hours, starting with reading a book in bed for the majority of that time. Then I finally managed to make it out of bed and get a mug of tea going.

Must. Wake. Up.

As for the plan today, I am hoping (fingers crossed!) to get back into the gym today for at least a little while. My nose is still stuffed up but I am getting so antsy that I can’t wait another week to get to the UREC. I’m planning on doing the Saturday circuit here¬†from Back On Pointe and just going at my own pace. No need to rush through it while I’m still recovering! By the time that is done, it’ll be time for the LSU/Florida game which is going to be a nail-biter with the way that we’ve been playing recently. Let’s just hope we don’t have as many penalties as last week! Last year when we played Florida, our punter ended up scoring which was EPIC but because he was celebrating before he got to the endzone, we sadly lost the points. It’s still one of my favorite highlights from last year though….

 

I hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing Saturday! Enjoy it while you can!
