I've been doing 80 mile weeks for a few months now. It's great for my fitness. I love it. I can manage it off 7 single runs. Cool deal. However, there is a huge drawback to running that much and being a girl with longer hair. Yup, the rats nest that ensues. I will scream if I see another running mag cover with a gorgeous ponytail swaying in the breeze.
|nothing personal but hell no. Pony's don't do that when running!|
|This is my hair. Looks like it could look good on the run...|
|This is the real deal friends. Speed and distance WRECK your hair!|
|Thankfully I have product for that!|
I have a few tips for those of you with longer hair:
*BRAID your pony tail
*Put it in a bun and under your hat during the winter. Not to be confused with a Pony Tail hanging down and hat over. This is worse with the friction.
*In my experience you can get away with a pony tail if you run less than 30 minutes and slower than 7:45 pace.
*Also, argon oil, argon oil....all day
If you have any other tips please let me know! Happy Running!
