My running partner is having some heart trouble so the run didn't go as planned, but everyone survived and hopefully she gets some good news at the cardiologist next week. Also, IT'S FREAKING HOT!! So we had some struggles and setbacks. But it's ok, not every run can be amazing.
I came home and attempted my first ice bath. I know I didn't put enough ice in because it all melted within a couple minutes, but the cold bath really helped ease my legs and feet right away. Next time I need to get a little more hardcore and dump our whole ice maker's worth in and suck it up.
After the run I had to hurry and get the kids and myself ready and meet some friends at Liberty Park! We rode the rides
The rest of the day was filled with heat, sweating, and crankiness. I also had some serious food issues and just devoured everything that came in front of me before I remembered to take a picture. But we had homemade chicken tacos (my fave!!) for dinner. I've also had an obscene amount of water today. Like A LOT! I've just felt so thirsty the whole day. This heat is going to kill me. I'm convinced.
I wanted to share some of my favorite things lately.
I tried a self-tanner for the first time that I had heard about many times on YouTube.
Ok, it's late and my eyes are burning and watering as I write this so I'm hitting the hay. Sleep is also one of my favorite things lately. And always.
