After, I hit the dry sauna, which was a little crazy for me, as I normally enjoy the wet sauna. (I use the term “crazy” loosely). I then spent about 5 minutes in the hot tub. Perhaps it doesn’t really bear mentioning as it doesn’t exactly relate to my half marathon training, but the hot tub was a highlight of my day.
Today, I ran for about an hour with Sweet Pea in the BOB stroller after work. It was supposed to be an easy 40 minute run but let’s face it, nothing’s easy when you’re running with the baby in the jogging stroller. Also, it turns out I grossly miscalculated the distance of my house to Whole Foods, where I ran to pick up a challah. (It seems so much closer in the car!) Then I stopped at the adjacent liquor store, where I found a bottle of Malbec Rose on sale, and even though the last bottle of Rose we bought was nasty, I wanted to give Rose another chance, because it’s so pretty and it looks like it would taste so refreshing, so I bought that too. My BOB has a console with two drink holders, which was perfect for my two bottles of wine. Of course, they only made the run harder, but it was nice not to have to make a separate trip for wine. And by that I mean it was nice not to have to text Dan and ask him to please pick up some wine on the way home.
