Happy Tuesday! We’re a few weeks removed from the holidays and I hope that you all had a blast spending time with family and friends.
This week’s Tuesday Topic: What were your favorite gifts you received over the holidays? You can write about this topic, or feel free to post any running related blog post. Remember to Link-up with Kim and Zenaida!
Was Santa good to you? While there’s SO much more to the holidays than gifts, sometimes you can get that one unexpected or cool gift that makes you smile from ear.
Do you have a favorite gift (or gifts) that you received over the holidays? I loved all my gifts, but these are the few that really stuck out to me.
I was so thrilled to receive these books! The Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow Cookbook was gifted to me by my Secret Santa for a gift exchange I did with a bunch of fitness bloggers (thanks Linda!) and I already see SO many recipes that I can’t wait to try!
I used a different training journal last year and while it was okay, I’m glad to be back to the Believe Training Journal for this year. I love the color and look forward to writing in my workouts everyday. Shut Up and Run has been on my wish list for a while. I enjoyed reading it over the weekend. While I didn’t learn anything new, I think it would be a prefect book for new runners and it was extremely motivating!
My parents gifted me a YnM Weighted Blanket for Christmas. I’ve never been a great sleeper but it’s gotten progressively worse over the past 2 years. Either I can fall asleep but not stay asleep (hello 3am infomercials) or I have insomnia which keeps me up way past my bedtime. I know that I need to get a proper amount of sleep in order to stay healthy so I’m hoping (fingers crossed) that this blanket will help. It’s been about three weeks and I do see some small changes already. I think that the longer I use it, the more results I’ll see.
I was in desperate need of new running sneakers since I had basically hit my mileage (400 miles) on three different pairs of sneakers! These Brooks Ravenna 9 sneakers are good so far. I’ve done a few 3-5 mile runs in them and haven’t had any weird pain. While I love the Brooks Launch sneakers, I need something with more support, especially for long runs. I’m hoping that these will be good for that!
I’m all about getting outside my comfort zone and for me that means wearing skirts and dresses more often. These two skirts from J. Crew Factory are so cute and the design is fun so how could I not want to wear these?
