I hope to get an 8 mile run in tomorrow. My last attempt at a long run didn't turn out the way I expected - stomach issues and I'll leave it at that. I've made a few modifications to my diet today. I'm hoping that tomorrow will be incident free. I'm also going to try running without my water bottle belt. That has been one major change for my last two runs that have turned out to be somewhat disastrous. So I'm going to leave it behind and see if it makes a difference. I sure hope so. It's not fun to go out for a run scared that I will be plagued by stomach issues.
I started swimming as cross training this week. I'm not really sure you can call it swimming as I basically 'dog paddle', but at least I am moving. I wanted to add some additional cardio to my work out routine.
But I have my route mapped out for tomorrow... hopefully it will be a good run.

My son will play outside at any time and in any weather. When he was little, my family couldn't believe that we played outside all year. I heard "Isn't it too cold to be outside?" You have to remember that our families live in Mississippi and Texas. And although it does get cold there, most days it warms up during the day, and then repeats the process the following day.
Pennsylvania weather was an adjustment for me in that some days it just doesn't feel like it warms up very much in the winter. But that being said, it doesn't stop us from getting outside. And honestly it shouldn't stop you either as long as the temperature isn't dangerously low.
We dress in layers. We wear hats and gloves when we need them. We keep moving. I try to find activities that will keep us active and moving while we are outside.
Sometimes, you just want to eat something with a crunch. And for me, a sweet crunch is even better. I was given the opportunity to try Natural Sins
And I would love to show you a picture of what the pineapple ones look like, but Lil Man ate them all. YES, I mean he ate 2 bags before I could even snap one picture. He liked them that much. I did get to try them, but he ate the majority of them.
I think this is an awesome idea, and I can't wait to get one. This looks like multi-tasking at its finest. I'm talking about The Convertible HDL by PRracer.
What it is? It's a skull cap / headband combo that is equipped to hold a device like a headlamp or a camera. The Convertible HDL is designed with the latest technology. Not only does it light your way, but it has a camera to capture your run.
