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