This morning's run/new revelations

Saturday, May 19, 2012

Ok so I was psyched this morning........i normally get up at around 5:15am to get dressed for work. So since today would have normally been my day off, I decided to set the alarm, but my body's alarm went of instead. By 5:45 I was out the door. The first couple of runs were great, 5 minute warm up, 5 minutes of running and then started my 2 minute walking interval. Around about the 3rd run i had really gotten into my groove...my breathing had calmed to an even pace and I was really doing well. Around my neighborhood there are a couple of hills that really tested my endurance.......luckily i passed. I pushed myself through those hills as fast and and hard as I could without stopping, trying to keep my breathing regulated and I rewarded myself with a slow trot once I got up to the top. The last 2.5 minutes of run 3 were hard. I started to notice that i tend to favor my right leg. Looking in the mirror shows evidence since this is the leg that is typically heavier and is less toned.

After examining the way my foot has a tendency to fall over to the side when i'm doing lunges, i figured its now time for some new running shoes. I'm going to reward myself those new running shoes once I hit 220. I've had those shoes for a little over a year now and although I know it's time to change them up, I want that to be my ultimate goal for ten pounds lost. So, i thought once i lost five pounds or had at least reached 225 (restarted at 233), i would reward myself with a new pedi...but until i reach that goal, right now it's me, my polish and my two hands.

    I think you DESERVE a new pair of running shoes. With all the mileage you're logging, you're going to wear out the tread on your current shoes in NO Time. emoticon
