Why do I do This to Myself and Back to the Olden Days

Posted by CheapRunnerRhoda

I got my hair done the other night. 3 hours of foiling and here’s how I look.

As I am sitting there getting this done, I was thinking to myself, why do I do this to myself. I hate getting my hair done!! I do like the end results though and after 5 hours of sitting in various chairs, I was happy!! No pics of that though #bloggerfail.

After almost a week of doing no exercise at all, I finally got my butt out yesterday. I have been fighting with a cold or some allergies or something and have been very congested. Yesterday was a little cooler out so I thought I would give it a try and see if I could breath and how I would feel. I went to put my Nikeplus watch on and found that I was completely dead, so I went and grabbed my old sports watch and thought I would just run for 40 minutes or so. I knew a good 8k trek so headed out to do that.

This is the watch that I used when I first started running outdoors 3 years ago. I used to just say, I want to run for 30 min, or 40 min etc. today and that is what I would do. I did that for the first year of my running before I got my Nikeplus gps watch. It really brought the memories back to me of when I first started running and I felt so Old School but it was nice to reminisce. I ended up getting the 8k trek done in 42:30 min and I felt great the entire time. My Saucony Kinvaras, in these pics, are getting near the end of their days so I am trying to finish them off to make room in my closet for my newer ones. They are now 8 k closer to retirement Smile I followed my run with some trigger point therapy foam rolling.

After my successful run yesterday I thought it was time to reward myself…

One I bought in Canada for about $1.75 and the other I bought in the US for $1.00. Can you guess which one???

Then it was time for some food.

Nachos it was!! I seriously hadn’t had nachos in over a month!! That is probably a record for me in the last 15 years of my life! They were everything I thought they would be.

Note my bowl size of sour cream and salsa…. This is how big they should be. It was the perfect amount!

Anybody else fighting off a cold or allergies right now?

What are in your plans for today?

    LOL I HATE getting a hair cut!! I seriously only get one 1-2x/year and it's usually when someone tells me, "My your hair has gotten long." Or when my mom tells me I'm starting to look like Chewbacca and need a cut ;)
