Rather than doing a long run yesterday, I packed up both boys and two of their friends and headed to the new high school. I figured the boys (ages 13, 12, 12, and 10) could play and I could do some speedwork. Warmed up for 2 miles, and my left hamstring felt twingey, but I kept going. When I went to do my second speed interval, I felt something give in the back of my leg, and I had to stop running.
Went to my PT today and I have a hamstring pull (not a tear, which is really good!). So I need to stay away from running for a few days, find some flat places when I start running again (Rocklin is ALL hills, I tell you!) and make friends with ice.
So instead of fitness, let's talk beauty for a minute. I have found the BEST shampoo. It's called Phytojojoba by Phyto. You see, I have the opposite problem of every girl on the planet. Everyone else seems to want more body in their hair, and I just want mine to LAY DOWN! I've even smoothed it with hand lotion on more than one occasion, much to my hair dresser's amusement. Well, this shampoo (and the Phytocitrus deep conditioner) make my hair smooth and silky and GREAT -- hooray!
Also, I'm still a fan of Bare Escentuals makeup, and from myblends.com found a link to a site where you can get samples of Bare Minerals products as well as empty shaker jars (for some reason, not all the BE products come in shaker jars, although they really should!). Anyway, I feel like my skin is better since using BE stuff and it's so easy to use that even a girl-challenged person like me can make her makeup look good.
