I may regret

I might just regret cutting my hair. Last Friday, I got my hair cut. I went shorter then last time as I get annoyed when it grows out to fast and I have to wait for another haircut, or pay to get it cut at 4 weeks instead of 6 weeks. See I am cheap and if my hair is past my shoulders I won't get it cut for months. I have very healthy hair and I don't need to cut it as often as most when its longer. That's just my excuse for, I let it go crazy. After the first of the year I took it up above my shoulders, well now its at chin length. Which I love, but it makes it near impossible to pull out of my face for working out.  The first photo is yesterday morning when I before I went to work. I bobby pinned my bangs up , but they are the same length as the other hair in the front.

Last night before my workout, bobby pins still in, ActiveBand Headband, and a very small ponytail. Now, I love the ActiveBand Headbands, but I don't think I have enough hair in the back to keep it in place.  I have some BondiBand headbands, but I don't like to wear those in public as I think they make my head look funny. The keep all the hair out of my face, but it looks like I am wear a very thin beany.....and call me vain but my face then looks super fat. So now I have dilemma. I like my hair out of my face and off my neck when I workout, I hate any wispy hair on my face. Do I just wear a hat or visor when I workout? All suggestions are welcome.
During my workout last night I completed the 5K option of the Jelly Bean Virtual Race. I had 3 miles on my training schedule for Tuesday, so I figured why not. It was an easy run, even if I was annoyed with my hair.

This morning I  headed to Spin Class, I had Spin guilt. I have missed the past 3 classes and was crossing my fingers that my instructor wouldn't call me out. I decided to wear a hat to try to keep my hair out of my face. I didn't have to worry about the instructor calling me out because he didn't show. WTF is up with that? Thankfully one of the Spin Junkies had her iPod with an older version of the RPM class on it so she plugged it in and we all just followed what she did, with a mix of making it up on our own. It actually turned into a great workout. The hat thing though, I don't know for indoors my hat and head were very wet with sweat, which is a good thing but also pretty gross.  

I stayed a little longer then I normally do to complete the 21K bike ride for the Jelly Bean Virtual Race. I have completed 3 of the 4 events for the Jelly Bean, not sure if I will get the 13.1 in but I am considering it for my long run on Saturday. We will see how it goes.

Happy Wednesday! What's on your workout plan today?


  1. I am dealing with the same hair issue. I have bangs now and I have a hard time keeping them out of my face. I either use my Chica band, bobby pins, or a hat. I have used a hat inside, but it's not my favorite option. Way to go on your Jelly Bean events! I have only done the 10k but hope to do all of them:)

  2. Love your hair! Working out with a hat would bug me, I think.

  3. I've been growing out my bangs for what feels like the past year. I, too, hate hair in my face, specifically when I'm working out. Headbands are the only things that keep me sane.

  4. oooh, girl. i am with ya on this one. hence my lovely 1980's visor fetish. lol also, i love your hair that length. so it is worth it. because my opinion is ultra important. duh.

  5. wow, i can't workout with a drives me crazy and makes me sweat more :-( i love your hair though...

    wow, three of the four jelly bean events...I better catch up!

  6. Love the hair! I only did one Jelly Bean event but hope to do more next year! Congrats on the events!

  7. Your hair looks cute but I know what you mean about pulling it back. That's why I can't stand having short hair. It frustrates me when I can't just pull it up in a ponytail and go!
