I think I like my MWF running schedule better than my T TH Sa schedule – for some reason the former just feels more natural. Anyway, I got up a little late this morning so I had to cram in a run and in my barely-awake state, I decided to try running in my old (we’re talking Methuselah here) running shoes. Folks, don’t ever let me make me decisions before I’m fully caffeinated. I could tell right away it was a bad idea, but instead of stopping and finding my other running shoes, I decided to just run a little and walk a little more on the treadmill this morning. I walked for 3 minutes and ran for 5 minutes for a total of 30 minutes. It was okay, not great. It felt a little light compared to what I’ve been doing (hence the title of this post). Tomorrow is strength-training day, and hopefully Thursday will be a better run. I’m still setting the incline at 1% on my treadmill with the hope it will help prepare me for the real run which happens in…2 weeks. Yikes!!
Any day now, I should get a hefty little bonus from work which I will use to go get for-really-reals running shoes. In fact, I just checked my bank account online and…no extra monies yet. Boo. So until then I am stuck with trying to run in shoes that I have absolutely no chemistry with. I mean if we were dating, the shoes and I would be secretly chatting with old flames on Facebook by now. It’s just not going to work out. Sorry shoes, it’s not you…well actually it IS you. But don’t worry, we’ll hang out occasionally because you are super cute – and you’re my alma mater’s colors, so there ya go.
In related news, I’m thinking about getting some running tights and running socks, etc, but instead of paying a hefty price at the running store, I wonder if I could get just-as-good stuff at Target? Anyone have any experience with Tarzhays athletic line? Love it? Hate it? What say you? Any excuse to go to Tarzhay is okay in my book.
I’m tired today, so I’m going to end this here before I get super goofy and just start typing random words.
See? it’s happening already.
Later taters – have a good afternoon!
