Yesterday was perfect runner's weather and I was able to get 5 gorgeous miles in. I was feeling so good, I thought about going longer, but remembered ... I am on a marathon training plan and need to stick to it. No need to go off course and trigger an injury.
I'm making sure to always do my yoga stretching after every run. I often add my planks and bridges in during this time now as well.
I have a stash of birthday money and I've been taking my time trying to decide how to spend it. I did a Container Store (my new favorite store!) shopping trip yesterday and finally found the most perfect jewelry box system! I've been wanting a new jewelry box for years now and can never find what I like. They had it ... and they have a sale currently for 20% off as well. I bought two pieces in the larger size in the "mink" color. I'm thinking I may go get a third piece before the sale is over.
I also ordered myself a Zoya nail polish color to try. I had never tried this brand before, but it is one of the brands with even less of the harmful chemicals. It is "5 free" of harmful chemicals rather than "3 free" like other brands. This is very appealing to me! I am in love!!! It glides on so smoothly and I only needed one coat on my toes, although I usually do two coats regardless. I'm pretty sure I'm a Zoya convert now :)
Fourth of July
Since it is Fourth of July, I'll have to pamper my Schnoodle a bit. She is so terrified of fireworks, poor dear.
Kitty doesn't seem too phased by the fireworks, but he'll be kept inside just to be sure he is ok.
Happy Fourth of July to all of my readers! And for those in other countries, enjoy your weekend!
