5 things I am loving

– tahini.  Mentioned yesterday but seriously I am obsessed.  I want to put it on everything.  Yogurt, toast, salad, everything.

– “low” temps that are below 80!  FINALLY!  we are getting somewhere!!
– the longest call-free stretch that I’ve hard in a loooooong time.  I will be making up for it later but man, it is amazing how much happier I am when I can control the beginning & end of my work day
– the Bedtime app on Ios10.  
– Carseat Headrest – great running/workout music.  I am also intrigued by the new Solange album.

I kind of enjoyed doing this rundown 🙂  Maybe a weekly thing?  Hmm.  I do want to be more accountable to my workouts and try to figure out some patterns so that I can increase my speed.  Hopefully writing out & analyzing my splits will ultimately help me get faster.

* no, I’m not fasting but that’s still what it’s called!
