Here is a quick picture of my new shoes; Sketchers: Pastellics! I freaking LOVE them!!! They are not only functional (light weight and fit my foot like a glove) but they are so freaking CUTE!!!
I originally thought Sketchers were nothing more then a cute shoe... but I decided to give them a try in the gym and was quite pleasantly surprised how GREAT they are as trainers too!
Recently on my shopping trip I bought a couple pairs of fitness Sketchers (feather light: D'lites), as well as another pair for walking to work. (Which, I might add, I paid the same price for ALL 3 PAIRS of shoes that I would for 1 pair of "running shoes" at the Running room!) I am SO GLAD I did because these shoes are the best things I've worn at the gym in ages! (My Nikes are really worn out and tired and my NewBalance trainers have never been very comfortable for my flat feet!)
I would not wear these shoes running though. So, when I went running on Saturday morning, I decided to try wearing an old pair of Nike's (Nike Air) that I have used for working out BACK IN THE DAY! (They have a new insole in them!) I figured they would be a better running shoe then my Nike SHOX which currently always cause me pain when I run.
Well, I can't say that I was totally wrong... but I did have knee pain at about 12 minutes in (right knee). (Since I walk for the first 2 minutes of my run, that's only after 10 minutes of running. BOO!) So, I guess I still REALLY need a few chiropractic adjustments to get my body in shape for running again. This week, I'll plan at least 2 visits (maybe 3... I do plan on running in the AM again starting this week since daylight savings time has finally arrived! Hellooo sunshine!)
I also found this store called "One Tooth" which sells clothes similar to LuluLemon except it's a little different style and the pants are HALF the price! So I splurged on a few new outfits... which I'll try to take pics of for you soon! The pants are too long so I need to wash them before I hem them!
