Since The Hus is now a runner, he apparently “needs” ALL the running things.
New running clothes, hydration belt(s), hats, Balega socks, Oofos for slippers, Oofos for outside, shoe insoles, SHOES, compression sleeves, and NOW…
Bluetooth wireless headphones.
Guys. I don’t even have any wireless bluetooth headphones and I’ve been running for over 20 years. I mean seriously. However, I’m just glad he’s doing SOMETHING to take care of himself!
Aaaaand, since it WAS his birthday on Sunday…I figured what the heck…might as well let him be the guinea pig with testing out some bluetooth headphones. 😉
I did a little bit of research and after debating between the powerbeats2 wireless earbuds, and the plantronics backbeat fit earbuds, we decided to go with the plantronics ones. They had good reviews and were half the price. It’s one of those things where, if they suck, it was “only” $85, but if they are great, WE SCORED. (My mom even went in on them together for his b-day. It was weird, all his b-day presents this year have been running related…I guess if ya nag them long enough, they will do what you want them to do. 😉 )
They are shorter in the back than the beats ones too – which we both liked.
And they aren’t a hard, stiff plastic – they are almost like a rubber-ish material, so they fold up nicely.
Came with a really nice case…
That reverses into an arm phone carrier!
And it looks like it holds a good sized phone! I mean, since phones are about the size of a small child now…
He did run with them the other night and said he loved them, so I’m ordering myself a pair now so that I will have them for the Erie Marathon.
Speaking of headphones and marathons, has anyone seen this at Trader Joe’s and tried it yet???
K, maaaaaaaybe that has nothing to do with headphone and marathons…but HAVE YOU TRIED IT?!?! SO YUM! BUT! Super caliente. So if you are kind of a baby (THE HUS) when it comes to spicy hot things, you maaaaay not wanna try it… 😉
Speaking of spicy hot things, guess who is back at hittin’ it hard this week with workouts?! Yup, THIS crazy!
Ok, reality check. I “hit it hard” on Tuesday and Wednesday…Today, I can’t move. Soooooo, I’m NOT gonna “hit it hard” today.
Monday I was gonna go to the park for a few miles, but as soon as I walked in the door, it was hurricane season outside. So we ran to Target. Makes sense.
Buuuuuuut come TUESDAY, I went to contact (kickboxing) and beat the crap out of a bag. And within the first 15 minutes, I used up, I’m guessing here, maybe 3 of my lives. I mean, if I was a cat…He had us do 25 minutes of upper body, then 25 minutes of lower body. THAT combo alone, made it brutal. IF I wanted to be like Ronda Rousey, I would now be well on my way to being fight ready.
Wednesday, upper body was more sore than lower body, but after actually getting up at 5am and making it to the speed workout, my lower body was starting to hurt more. The speed workout for ME, since I have a marathon in less than 2 weeks, was 5 x 1000’s.
Then, since one of the guys who takes all of Alexander’s classes started teaching a strike class at Lifetime, I’ve been wanting to get to it. Since he would, inevitably, be similar style to Alexander’s classes…
So! Made it to his 6:30 P.M. strike class last night, and as of an hour ago, my lower body is JUST as sore as my upper body. Except, all the pain is equally worse than it was yesterday. Hence the lazy day today.
(Read with a sarcastic voice): And now i’m off to fun in the workplace.
P.S. Ever since 9:37 a.m. on Tuesday, I’ve been ready for 5:30 p.m. on Friday. Monday and Tuesday alone felt like 5 days.
Do you use bluetooth wireless headphones when you workout?? Which ones and what do you have to say about them???
