Canadian girls are tough!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on November 2, 2008

After my breakfast settled, I decided to hit the road for a run! I checked the Weather Network as I always do, and I was a wee bit scared to find out it was only 2 degrees Celsius (35.6F) outside- with 15 km winds! Yikes. I put on my gloves and my Lululemon Shape Jacket for warmth.

A few days ago, I had quite the frightening experience with my ipod shuffle. I accidentally left it in my jacket pocket and it went through a full cycle in the wash!!! lol. I thought it was a goner forsure. Eric told me not to try turning it on because the water would fry it, so I left it for 2 days to dry out. Lo and behold 2 days later it worked! Who knew the ipods could take a lickin and keep on tickin!? I promise, dear ipod, that I will never take you for granted again!

I also swiped on some Shisheido Sun Protection stick on my face (it was super sunny outside) which has SPF 36! I love this beauty product. I brought it with me to Mexico and my honeymoon and used it everyday. It is great too, because it also provides a bit of tint to cover any imperfections!

The first 2 minutes of my run were utterly frigid. I almost turned back because the wind was so bitter it took my breath away! But, being the tough Canadian girl that I am :D I decided I was going to get a good workout regardless of the cold! I did my usual hill route backwards- a crisp 5.5 miles! My time improved today as I didn’t stop and walk for more than about 30 seconds or so. My time was 47 minutes for the run, plus an additional 4-5 minutes walking up 24 flights of stairs to my condo. Man, those stairs felt long and painful today! I also took off my socks to find a huge blister on the inside of my foot- ouch! Looks like my over-pronating feet need some new shoes. :

Caitlin- Glad you found my new site! Thanks for your sweet comments! I love the slideshow that our photographer put together for us- it is such a wonderful memory and there wasn’t a dry eye in the hall when they played it at the end of the night. I can’t wait to see your pictures!

You are a brave brave girl to go out in the cold. I hate running outside in the cold! Love the Lulu gear.. i’ve been eyeing some up on ebay lately ;) Does that sun protection skin leave an oily feel? Thats my main complaint for a lot of them, and since I have sensitive skin it breaks out if i’m not careful.

I LOVE siseido sunscreen. I don’t have the one you used; but the one I have leaves the most cosmetically elegant finish I have ever seen in a Sunscreen. (I use the SPF 55 ultimate sun protection– beware if you have dry skin, as you may need a different formula. See glowing reviews on MakeupAlley here: )

Great pick!

Love the blog so far!

Leah– Thank you- I wish you lived nearby so we could push each other to get out ALL winter! :) I have to admit, while I love the sunscreen stick it IS a bit greasy (more than I would prefer). So for that reason I wouldn’t recommend it 100% if you are prone to breakouts…but it is quick and easy so I use it when in a pinch. :)

Elizabeth– Welcome to the blog! Thanks for your comments. I too have heard that the Shisheido products have gotten reviewed really well on Make-up Alley (PS- love that website!).
