Women. We love to work out, we love to give our workouts all we’ve got and we all know we like to look good doing it. That’s what Heart Sweat Lipstick is all about. It’s no secret I love to run or hit the mat and get a good sweat in and I love looking my best. Yes, in years past you could’ve called me a lulu-head and these days I can’t get enough Athleta. I love getting ready for race day with a new running outfit and crossing the finish line feeling my best.
A few months back Brooke approached me from Heart Sweat Lipstick asking me if I’d like to work with her to help promote her concept. Considering how much I like a good workout and enjoy looking my best I couldn’t really say no! Brooke sent me over my own Heart Sweat Lipstick dri-fit and a few stickers…

And speaking of workouts, I’m finally back on track. The holidays definitely threw me for a loop, throw in a snow storm and freezing cold temperatures it’s the perfect storm to miss more than a few runs. Usually once I start missing runs I feel really bad about it but then as time goes on I embrace the extra downtime and I don’t feel so bad. Eventually I really miss my runs and start itching to get back out running. I never go too long without a run!
Monday morning I started the week off right with an easy 3.5 miles. The air was cold but smelled and felt delicious and since it’s been over a week since the storm has passed the side walks were finally cleared. It felt good to get my run on! My pace wasn’t anything spectacular but I felt good and that is what counts.
My goal is to get back to running 3 or 4 days a week. This past month I was only running about 2 days a week. Even though I’m not training for anything particular I still like to be consistent with my runs and just reduce the mileage if necessary. To me it’s easier to bump up my mileage on each run a little bit at a time rather than adding more running days to my training plan. I’ll likely end up running a half this spring so I’d like to have a good base for whatever 2013 brings. Today was the perfect start to the year. I’ll be back out there tomorrow morning for another solid run!
