For the past three weeks, I was experiencing excruciating pain on the right side of my face. The first two weeks, my dentist kept saying that I was grinding my teeth. I knew that I wasn’t, because the pain was unbearable. Finally found out earlier this week that I needed a root canal. For anyone who has experienced this or is experiencing this, my heart goes out to you, because IT IS PAINFUL. Last weekend, I couldn’t sleep at all because I was in so much pain, and made my very first trip to the emergency room. Anyways, I didn’t get to run much this week because I recently had the root canal procedure, but I did attempt a long run today. Um, IT WAS FREEZING! I was planning on running 20 miles, but had to cut it to 16, because I could not take the wind. I’m glad I did, because I am starting to have a runny nose. When I got home, I took my gloves off and realized that my hair was frozen! You can’t see it very well in this picture, but frozen hair is definitely a first for me.
Alright, so since we’re on the topic of cold weather, here are some of my favorite winter gear! I know they are all over the place, but they are all really affordable!
-I always wear FILA leggings. Super comfortable and affordable! They have a lot of cool designs too.
–Asics has some great jackets. I love this one. If it’s in the high 30’s-40’s, I usually just wear a long shirt and a jacket. This jacket is lightweight, but keeps me warm!
–Old Navy vest. These vests aren’t really for working out, but they were so cheap, I ended up getting them for running. They are actually super warm. I usually wear my vest from Victoria’s Secret, but they must not be selling them anymore. In my opinion, the Old Navy vest works just fine!
–180s gloves. I love that these gloves allow me to press the passcode to my phone easily when I want to skip a song that I’m listening to!
Tonight’s dinner is risotto! The past week, I’ve been eating mostly peanut butter and scrambled eggs for dinner because I was in so much pain, so this is definitely a treat!
I hope everyone enjoys their Super Bowl Sunday!
