Happy Friday! I’m excited for the weekend. Mike, Pippa and I are headed to the Cape tonight for our last weekend with my family before we move.
This morning I started the day off with a 5 mile run. My legs have been really tired this week and I was hoping they would loosen up on an easy run. They were still pretty tight after so I spent extra time foam rolling and stretching.
Today, for Fitness Friday, I want to talk about hair styles while working out. I have major issues with my hair when I run! It gets so snarly! It’s out of control!
Exhibit A: After the Hyannis Half Marathon. I tried braiding my hair in two braids and this was the outcome.
Exhibit B: Post Vermont City Marathon. Wore my hair in a ponytail in the rain and this was the result.
Exhibit D: Tried wearing my hair in a braid, but the elastic fell out somewhere along my run and my hair just knotted up in to a complete mess.It seems like nothing works! But for the past two days, I wore my hair braided in one french braid and used a ton of hair spray and it stayed in. I think the key is tons of hair spray and making sure the elastic is on really tight so it doesn’t fall out. My elastic actually fell out of my braid during a race and I had to finish the race with my hair down. So now I always try to keep an extra elastic on my wrist just in case.
How do you keep your hair from getting tangled and snarly on a run?
What are your plans for the weekend?
