5miles, slower, chilly (hooray)
I’m having a hard time grasping the fact that we are now in September, like, seriously, what happened? The biggest benefit of September, that I see right now, is that all the teachers in my life go back to school, and I no longer have to listen to how they are on vacation while I’m getting ready for work. YES, teachers deserve summers off, it just stings a little when they rub it in, and they do- MOM!
Sunday, I weighed in at 129.4; I lost 1.6lbs! I am only 4.4 measly lbs away from my next mini goal- and I want it. I don’t know what my prize will be yet for hitting 125, but I’m pretty excited. Suggestions?
My running last week was pretty awesome. I ran a total of 26 miles; more than I’ve done in a while. I had two 5miles, two 3miles, and one really unexpected 10miler. I hadn’t done 10 since running a half marathon in May. When I went out running that day, I set my stop watch, and said “I’m just going to run until I’m tired”. I did a 7 mile loop and a 3 mile loop- once I was done with the three, I didn’t think I could take another step. But I did it, and I did sub 10 min miles. Which, ya know, I’m slow so that pretty great.
But here’s the catch, now that I’ve done 10, the wheels are turning. There’s a half marathon September 23- should I go for it? Keep in mind I’m running the relay October 12th.
Thanks to Katie, I am now having way less foot pain when I run. I have both a high instep and really wide toes. When you visualize that, you probably think I’m a freak, I promise they’re not as bad as they sound. Anyway, thanks to Katie, I found out I can simply lace my shoe another way to alleviate some of the pressure.
Side note: Isn’t it funny, that at 25 years old, I never once though a shoe could be laced differently. Social norms.
I am now a FitFluential Ambassador! What does this mean for you? Potentially; some really cool things (giveaways!). I will fill you in on stuff as I find it out.
Okay, question of the day. I enjoy getting my nails done, but this is always the part I get stuck at…
They’ve grown out too much for me to function normally. What do I do? How do I get them off? My normal process when I get to this point is to rip them off in a painful- could-be-considered-torture way. Can I go back to the person who did them? Do I have to get them redone? Help!
How was your labor day? Did you work or play?
Do you have any races coming up that you aren’t sure about?
Should I buy a new pair of sneakers anyway?
