It’s Thursday and that means I’m leaving for my bachelorette party in Savannah in just a few hours!! I’m SO excited. I’m probably not going to be doing much running, so I made sure that I got one last run in last night.
I wanted to mix it up a little bit, so I decided to do some hill repeats. I did a 1 mile warm up and then ran up this bad boy 4 times. It doesn’t look very intimidating here, but right after that curve it shoots up again and gets really steep towards the top. It’s also a little over a quarter mile long.
It hurt pretty bad. And I know you’re probably sick of hearing this but surprise, surprise… it was hot. I did pretty close to an all out effort and my legs felt like Jello afterwards, but in a good way. Afterwards I did a 1.5 mile cool down (4 miles total) and some lunges.
For the past two weeks I’ve been trying out my new Jaybird BlueBuds X wireless headphones. After I got my dad a pair for father’s day a lot of readers were asking questions about them. I reached out to Jaybird and they graciously offered me a pair to review on here. I’ll also be giving a pair away, so stayed tuned!
They are pretty awesome. I want to use them a little while longer before doing a full review, but I will tell you that these nifty little hooks keep them super snug in your ears, even when it’s 90 degrees and you are sweating like crazy. That has always been my biggest issue with headphones – they slip right out as soon as I start sweating. I’ve done track workouts, long runs, and now hills with these and they haven’t budged. And there are no cords in the way, which is AMAZING.
That’s all for today. I’ll talk to you guys on Monday about all of the bachelorette shenanigans!
Do you use wireless headphones? What brand?
When you do hill repeats… how long are your hills?
