I usually don’t do “random thoughts” posts, but I’ve got a lot of things rolling around in my head, and the best way to get them out is just to share.
I’ve dropped a size in Old Navy and Target workout clothes. I was getting close, but it was still a 50/50 shot up or down. Not so much anymore! Weight loss is really on the lower end of my goals with running (my priority is being fit and healthy – the rest will fall into place), but this fact did make me give myself a little, internal high five. Ok, ok. A big, internal high five.
You may have noticed a pretty piece of bling on my sidebar.
That’s right! I’m now part of fitapproach.com’s wonderful team of athletes who are spreading the word about fitness and healthy living. I want to help motivate and inspire others to get out there and be active. It’s an honor and a privilege to be a part of this and I’m really excited about it. I got a shipping notification that my “sweat pink” tank and pink shoelaces are on their way, and I cannot wait to get that package!
I’m developing calluses between my little and fourth toes. It’s kind of annoying, but it makes me feel like a real runner.
My eating habits are changing. Or, shall I say, my cravings are changing. I’ve been craving so much more protein (like turkey and fish), and I find myself not super interested in foods that really used to be favorites (Like french fries. Not that I eat them a lot, but I did enjoy when I ordered them… now, I can kind of take them or leave them, and mostly, I leave them). I’m working with it.
I rode down a water slide for the first time in years, at the request of my son. It was a lot more fun than I remembered. I should do it more often.
It has come to my attention that some runners have different shoes for different kinds of runs. I’m not sure what to do with this information. On a good day, my shoe collection boasts a pair of Chuck Taylors, 5-13 pairs of $2.50 Old Navy flip flops and a couple of “fancier” sandals (most likely from Target). Oh, and my Mizunos. The thought of having more than one pair of running shoe is absolutely mind-boggling, and is really going to be eating away at me. Especially as I am nearing the lower end of my mileage limit for these shoes. Hmmmm. What to do, what to do?
When was the last time you went down a water slide?
How many pairs of running shoes do you have in rotation at one time?
Share something random for this Thursday 🙂
