Shoe Return



Remember my cute pink Asics I was so excited about? Well, they didn’t work out so well.  I didn’t run much in them, but when I did I ached in my calves and inner ankles. No fun.  I haven’t been running much since I couldn’t work out much with the flu, but now I am back and motivated.

Since Road Runner Sports has a 90 day love em or return em guarantee, I knew I had to take them back.  I’m guessing there just wasn’t enough stability support, since the employees told me it was a little less than my normal Brooks Adrenalines.  I asked what they do with the shoes returned (mine probably had 10+ miles on them) and they said they get offered to employees first.  Then they end up at expos or donated to the military.



I got my new Brooks Adrenalines and they feel good.  I guess I should just stick with what works!  We took the drive down to the store on Friday after school and it took about an hour and a half.



There is a Houlihans close by so we ate there for dinner. I LOVE Houlihans, but the closest one is about 45 minutes away.  I started with their Tuscan salad (my favorite) and also had their veggie burger with chickpeas and black beans.  So good!

Winter Running Plan


I haven’t kept up so well with my pre- half marathon training plan due to the flu, but I guess that is why it’s a pre-training plan!  This week is week 5, so I’m hoping to pick it back up.  The problem is… I’ve just been enjoying group classes so much!!! I love my BodyPump, CXWORX, and BodyFlow so much! Since I had today off, I was able to take a morning CXWORX and BodyFlow class back to back! I also did the full 60 minutes of this Saturday and had SUCH SORE MUSCLES…

dvdOWWWWWWWWWWW! My obliques hurt soooo good the next day!!! I HIGHLY recommend this dvd, but it is VERY hard!! I warned you!


Flu Season

So… I thought I wouldn’t get sick so soon but I’m pretty sure I got slammed with the flu this week.  I started feeling pretty horrible Wednesday morning and I ended up with the fever, chills, aches, cough, etc. etc. I think the worst of it was Friday and that was when I asked Colby for my favorite “sick meal”.



I NEVER eat fast food… ever! But when I am sick, I really want that Sprite from a McD’s cup and french fries.  I haven’t been very hungry for the past few days, but my comfort food really hit the spot last night!

I did get this in the mail this week…



Pop Pilates Total Body Workout DVD!

I was really excited when I ordered this because Cassey’s workouts are always great on her YouTube site.  I wasn’t feeling up to trying the entire 60 minute DVD, so I just picked the “abs” section to do and I lasted about 20 minutes before I needed to stop.  My abs were shaking, but I was also feeling pretty sick Thursday when I tried this so I had to stop! I’ll wait a few more days before I try it out again when I feel better.

Don’t worry, I’m catching up on tons of trashy tv this weekend and laying around in my sweatpants :)
