Why You’ll Want to Add Vitamin C to Your Skincare. The Brightening Oil and the Cleansing Balm from Beautycounter have made a HUGE difference in my skin’s appearance, and I hear the same feedback all the time from people who order those. And both of them contain Vitamin C. Many of my favorite make-up products contain Vitamin C (including the Dew Skin and Cream Blush), which is part of the reason I think switching my skin and make-up routine to Beautycounter has made a huge difference in my skin.

Recent Workouts

M- CrossFit

T- 7 miles; 8:56 pace. Running a super hilly route after 100+ front squats last night did not feel very good. Oops.

W – 4.7 miles with Ali; 8:52 pace. My legs were still dead!

Th – 8×400 repeats on the track, total 8 miles; 8:08 pace (I did the repeats at a 6:00-6:10 pace with 2 minute recovery jog)

  • I was procrastinating my run like crazy in the morning, but I finally told myself I didn’t have to do speed work just to get myself out the door. And then I made it to the track and did the speedwork. Funny how that happens.

F – 10.3 miles (6.3 miles with Christian/4 miles on the treadmill); 8:25/8:52 pace + 10 min core work + RomWod stretching

  • I did my long run on Friday instead of Saturday since I took the day off work and I split it up into two runs. My original plan was just the 6 and then my friend Christian mentioned she was doing a second run to get in her long run in before the weekend. I loved the idea of that and it was kind of nice to break it up, and to have the weekend totally off!

Sa – 25 minute EMOM, 1 minute each move

  • air squats
  • push-ups
  • double unders
  • plank hold
  • russian twists

Su – REST

Total Miles: 30.1 miles

How I’m feeling: Really good! I’m trying to be a lot better about stretching, so I set a timer for 5 minutes after every run to stretch. It’s just a little bit, but it all adds up to make a huge difference.
