I thought everyone would want to see my super awesome new running sneakers:
My new ones are on the top (white and red), and my old ones are on the bottom (gray and ugly and old). Those were my old pair - there's still the pair inbetween that are still at my bf's place.
Also, here's what those horrible old shoes did to my toe:
Gross. I know. It's feeling better already though, with just three days in my NEW AWESOME shoes. :)
Didn't get as much running/walking in as I wanted to this weekend. Friday, I had to make potato salad for my family reunion on Saturday, and I also had to get my car looked at (I need new rotors and brake pads... someday). I did go to the gym Saturday morning, but I only got in 4.65 miles in on the treadmill. They have this annoying habit of shutting off after 60 minutes. No... let me keep going! So I got off. Lame. Then yesterday, my boyfriend and I walked to go rent a movie. That was nice. We walked really slow, but it was so beautiful outside.
I can tell it's almost fall. It was only 57 degrees when I left for work this morning, and I heard only 41 further up north. I'm completely okay with fall, but I want it to hurry... I always have allergy issues during the seasonal transitions.
I didn't get up this morning to go for a run, but I will the rest of the week. I plan to get at least 3 miles in each morning, and then another 7 in the afternoon, along with my .8 at work. It's going to be hard, but so worth it, when I reach my goal. Also, the 31st of August, I'll already be on vacation, and can probably just go out walking for hours... maybe there's a hiking trail around, that'd be great.
12.94/day does look scary, though. I just need to focusing on the running, not the countdown.
Don't worry... just pray. :)
