It feels good to sweat; well, except when it gets in my eyes. Soaked clothing is tangible evidence that I am working hard.
-2-I've been dealing with a rather bad case of Plantar Faciitis. I've had it before and it is painful and annoying. It usually is indicative of beating your feet up in not-so-good shoes. I checked Zappos to see when I bought the running shoes I have been using. It’s been three years and a lot of walking miles ago. I guess it’s time to splurge and buy a new pair.
-3-Speaking of good support (I was wasn’t I??), I decided that the sports bras I had were completely inadequate. Who designs those things anyways? I stopped in a couple of local department stores and they had pitiful selections. Macy’s only had one real sports bra and it was sixty-five dollars! I don’t think so.
Himself suggested checking Amazon and they had a great selection. I had many, many from which to choose and the prices were much better. The reviews people posted were so helpful. Since we have a Prime membership, the one I picked out arrived in just two days. Did I tell you how much I like Amazon Prime? And my new bra? Both are awesome!
-4-The 5k race that I am going to sign up for is a fund raiser for the Knight of Columbus at St. Sebastian’s church. And just who is St. Sebastian? you ask. He is the patron saint of athletes, and particularly of runners. Got to love that coincidence. If you’re not doing anything on October 18th and feeling like heading my way, I’d love to have some company on my run/walk.
-5-I had to travel for work last week. In keeping with my ‘no excuses’ theme I brought my running gear. The hotel had a small, but very nice fitness center. Had any of my coworkers that I traveled with seen me after my workout they would have been afraid, very afraid.
I downloaded the C25k app on my phone. Once I figured it out I found that I could choose the ‘voice’ that gives the orders as when to run and when to walk. I like the Drill Sargent. He is good motivation!
There have been a few workouts that were a little tough to get motivated for. But afterwards I was so glad I had done them. I felt good. I like what I am seeing on the scale now that I am running again. -5. ‘Nuf said.
Have a great weekend!
