I did some research today about running shoes and Zumba shoes. I contacted my Zumba instructor and she told me she has dance shoes. She told me about some Ryka shoes - apparently a lot of people wear them to Zumba.
I tried on three pairs of Ryka at the shoe store today. One pair fit ok, but when I stood on my toes, the material crinkled together and it felt really funny on my toes. So those are out unless I order a different kind online and try them out - or find a different type of shoe store that may carry other styles. I tried one a few pairs of running shoes. I like two, but they are expensive. I will look online to read some reviews about them. Depending on the brand & type of shoe, I am either a 9 or 9 1/2. Some pairs looked really pretty but felt too thin/unsupportive. Ugh!
Anyways, I have yoga tonight - which doesn't need any shoes! I have three yoga classes left. If I want to continue, it will cost $70 for a 5 pack over 60 days or $130 for a 10 pack of classes. Zumba is $35 for 5 classes.. so I don't know if I want to do zumba twice a week? or spend the money do yoga less often maybe? I don't know. I could try to find a gym membership that offers classes, but I am not sure if I want to do that. I don't want to sign a contact at LA Fitness. I heard horror stories about cancellations & people still being charged. grrrr.
So this week I have Yoga, 5K training, Zumba, and more 5K training to do woooo. I want to fit in more 5K training, but I hate that I get sweaty after haha. I have the time to do it during my lunch break, but I don't want to get changed into workout clothes, get sweaty, and then get changed again and go back to work!
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

I had a pretty good weekend although it went by super fast!!! I went to a park Saturday & walked around a bit. Yesterday I walked to my local township Days. It was a gorgeous day although I got a bit of sunburn on my one shoulder. They had a lot of vendors, a parade, petting zoo, and a car show. I even put in raffle tickets at the local animal shelter booth. There were a ton of dogs there! I didn't get any 5K training in, but at at least I got in 2 hours of walking.
Yesterday I helped set up for a surprise party. They only had an hour to set up all of the decorations & food in the house. I like doing all of that, so I was honored when I was asked to help. I even thought of random things the hostess didn't think of - for example, they had hotdogs & hamburgers but I didn't see any big plates to put the food on when it was done being grilled. So I asked her and she quickly found some haha. Her & her Mom & sister kept saying Thank You to me. They only had hotdogs & hamburgers & mayo-based salads so I mostly picked at the veggies and fruit salad. Oh and tortilla chips yum! haha
My running belt came, but I didn't get the chance to use it yet. I showed my parents, and they laughed at me. They are happy I am doing exercise, but they thought the belt was silly. I explained how uncomfortable it is to jog with a backpack on. I will definitely wear it when I walk the 5K on the 22nd. I am still really excited about it. I am not jogging in it at all, but it will give me a better feel of having other people around!
I have yoga tonight & zumba on Thursday. My thumb is really bothering me, so yoga probably won't be as fun, but I am still going! I finally have a hand specialist appointment in 2 weeks.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week! KEEP SPARKING!
