Maybe it’s because it’s getting hot, or maybe it’s because I’m just sick of long hair – but every day last week I wanted to rip my hair right off my head. It was just so annoying. I got to the point where I wearing in a stupid bun every single day. I know that when it gets to that point, a bun, instead of down, it’s time for a change.
After searching pinterest for
a few minutes hours, I decided I needed to just cut it off. I text my hair dresser that I needed an appointment ASAP and that I needed her to cut my hair off and color it. Thankfully she had an appointment on Saturday!!
I LOVE IT! SO MUCH COOLER, and it looks healthier too!
No regrets. Chris even said he likes it.. how nice of him, right? He usually likes long hair, but he agreed that this looks much healthier than my long hair.. and I cut my long hair pretty regularly, and use good conditioner on it, it was just done.
Anyways, that’s seriously enough talk about my hair. how boring.
Monday morning I joined the Striders for their annual Memorial Day run. I set out for 6 miles with Shannon; The first 4 were okay, but I started to feel pretty bad- I can’t remember where we were, but when we stopped for water I about threw up. After that our pace slowed way down, and I was definitely struggling. I thought we were never going to make it back the parking lot.
I’m trying to get back on some kind of running schedule but the rain and humidity isn’t making it very easy. I’d rather be doing almost anything besides running around in 100% humidity – wah.
I’m not going to make my 80 miles/month goal for May – IF I run 5 miles on Thursday, I’ll end the month with 70, which is good enough for me. I had some extra miles from previous months to make up for the deficit. I’m 41% done with my goal of 1000 miles this year. Hopefully, with marathon training starting in the next few months, I’ll have no trouble meeting my goal of 1000 miles.
June will be a better month.
That’s a promise.
How did your May shape up? Race PRs? Monthly mileage PR?
