Fridays are favorites for so many reasons. I’ve started having Fridays be a long swim workout, and that’s it. It is so relaxing. If I don’t feel like swimming fast, I don’t try. Once I’m done, I shower and put my cozy sweats back on while I have my coffee, and it is the best.
Here is what I’m loving this week:
This dress from Nordstrom. Under $50! The best part is that is got both the friends and boyfriend stamp of approval. Guys never get women’s clothes – so it is always nice when the boyfriend notices you look good haha! I also like that I can wear it with tights and boots in the winter, and sandals in the summer.
The NPR Politics podcast. It is super short, and gives you a good run down of all the political happenings. I am not one who likes to follow politics, but I think it is really important to be informed – so this is an easy to digest chunk of info that I can listen to in the car.
Stance came out with new over the calf compression socks! UGHHH they are so cute!! I am a big fan of their socks, and compression socks make a huge difference on tired legs – well worth the weird tan lines! You can see them here & here.
Meb for Mortals. I’ll be honest – I didn’t want to buy, or like, this book. However, I decided to buy it after listening to Tina Muir’s RunnersConnect podcast with Meb’s coach – Bob Larson. I didn’t want to like it because it felt like everyone and their mom bought it, and it was just this trendy thing to buy because everyone wants to be like Meb. But Bob talked about Meb’s drills, and how he thinks doing drills really helps prevent injuries. As we all know I am injury prone, I caved and bought it. Verdict? Lives up to the hype. I will let you know if I actually start doing the drills HA.
Lastly, my new favorite is RX Bars. If you follow me on snapchat (username jenniferlkyle) – you might have noticed there are less cooked meals and more driving around lately. These bars have been a lifesaver. I really like that they are super simple ingredients, don’t leave me hungry after an hour, and don’t give me a stomachache. I’ve only tried sea salt chocolate & peanut butter and both are delicious.
