Happy Friday Guys! Seems I’m really good at waiting almost a whole week late to put out an update.. oops!
This past week was a weird one. Work was busy yet again, but then I took Thursday and Friday off to go crazy for a video game expansion release. Other than Tuesday (IT SNOWED and I got out early so of course I ran in it!) I ended up running insanely late on the treadmill every night, which wasn’t terrible mostly. I even felt good running 5 on the treadmill both Saturday and Sunday!
|Monday||––||2.00 miles / 9:41 pace|
|Tuesday||Easy 5 (9:02-9:41)||4.78 miles / 9:59 pace (trail)|
|Wednesday||––||2.00 miles / 9:32 pace|
|Thursday||Easy 3||3.10 miles / 9:34 pace|
|Friday||Easy 3||3.00 miles / 9:40 pace|
|Saturday||Easy 5||5.00 miles / 9:26 pace|
|Sunday||Easy 5||5 miles / 9:20 pace|
|Total||21 miles||24.88 miles|
I’ve still been rolling like mad to make sure the treadmill doesn’t get me. I got my Addaday roller in and just like I thought it is just what I needed! Its ball rollers get MUCH deeper than my old grooved stick roller. I’m definitely a fan!
Speaking of recovery, I ordered a pair of slide Oofos because I LOVE my flip flops, but I am a socks-at-all-times kind of person so I needed ones I could wear socks with for maximum coolness. I’m hoping they come in before the Hyannis Half the 24th!
My last bit of running news is just a reminder that I have all my product and race discounts listed on my discount page! I personally love getting little discounts on products/races I’ve been meaning to try so I just wanted to be sure you guys knew!In Other News
My boyfriend and I finished up our first week of Hello Fresh and seriously love everything about it so far! I will DEFINITELY be doing a write up on it!
One last new thing I did this past week was to finally purchase a sunlight lamp. I’ve been debating it for awhile since my house and office both have sub-optimal window placement so I definitely get less light than in the past and I feel like it’s affecting me mentally. I went over a friends and she had one and was telling me how it actually helps her so I decided to give it a shot!

What are your favorite recovery tools?
Have you ever tried a sunlight lamp? Did you like it?

I love my Oofos and hope you get yours before the race! I definitely appreciate my foam roller for recovery. I used to have all kinds of IT band issues before I started foam rolling but not anymore. Have a great race!
