Ran on Treadmill
5.0 miles / 49 mins
Did a treadmill interval workout. After a warmup, completed 1 x 400m, 4 x 800m @ 8:34/mi, then cooldown. I was going to do a couple more intervals, but Ry was done with his workout so it was time to go.
What I wore:
Please don't mind the messy office/guest room behind me. Also, note to self -- get a better full length mirror!
These awesome shorts from Athleta. Seriously so comfortable and lightweight. And a black tank I purchased at Bob's Stores a few years ago. And my Brooks Ravenna2 shoes, of course (sorry you can't see them in my photo)!
My hair was going a bit crazy in the middle of the run, so I think it's time to invest in some kind of hair band. Outside I've been wearing a visor on my runs, and that helps, but seems weird to wear one at the gym. Skinnyrunner says she loves BIC Bands -- maybe I'll try one of those.
I SOOO needed a good workout last night. Stuff at work has been a little overwhelming / annoying / stressful lately so I was feeling restless and stressed. I think getting a good sweat in really helped. Then I had a glass of red wine and chocolate after dinner. Yum.
Anyone else have a headband they recommend?
What helps you the most after a stressful day?
