I Don't Sparkle, I Sweat & Mom's Moving In!

Sort of.

My dad left to drive back to NJ this morning, but my mom is staying for two and a half more weeks! I'm actually really excited. We have lots of fun when she's in town, and she's going to stay at my apartment while I'm in Europe. It will be nice to not have to worry about robbers and Stella when I'm gone.

I've been wanting a visor for a while, so I finally bought one at Target. Definitely not the most attractive thing in the world, but my appearance is the last thing I care about when I'm running. It kept the sweat and sun out of my eyes during my super hot run yesterday. I'm not sure why I wore a headband and the visor. Don't let me do that again...

4 miles - Remember when I said I was going to stop running around my boring neighborhood? Yea, I lied. I'm still working on "feeling" my pace. I wanted to run miles 2 and 3 at a 9:20 pace. I nailed mile 3, but mile 2 was too fast…hence mile 4. I'm a work in progress.

Splits: 9:24, 9:05, 9:20, 9:37

It's been unseasonably cool these past few weeks, so yesterday's run in 82 degree heat was borderline unbearable. I was drenched by the time I finished…

I don't sparkle…I sweat. A lot. 

Post run fuel. Trader Joe's Kale salad…

I made the leap to the 8 pound weights. I can lift heavier at the gym (when I feel like it), but I only had 5's at home. My trainer will be so proud...

Have an awesome Hump Day! 

Do you ever host your parents?

How hot is it where you live? 

What's the heaviest free weights you lift?
