11 days to go! We’re almost in 10-day forecast territory, dudes.
I thought about photographing my lunch, but it was the same as yesterdays: pineapple pre-workout, spinach + balsamic, Chobani + strawberries + Kashi GoLean, and a multigrain bagel.
Once again, over the lunch hour, I hit the gym. 0.4 mile run there, 3.5 mile run on the treadmill, 0.4 mile run back. Whee!
My iPod was dead today, so I did some thinking while I ran. I am certain these shoes (the Brooks Defyance 2s) are not THE shoes for me. Aside from the blister issues, I’ve had various knee/shin/ankle pain, and today, my hips were complaining too! Ugh. My orthotics are in (but I keep forgetting to make an appointment to pick them up—it’s a little hectic right now), and I think I’ll head back to the ol’ running store to get a new pair.
Here’s my dream shoe wishlist:
- A wide toe box. I think the blistering on my forefoot is because these shoes are just too narrow thanks to my awesome bunions.
- I also like the idea of a wide width shoe—I tried one for a few weeks earlier this year, but it was a stability shoe, and didn’t have enough cushioning, so I got shin splints. I’m curious about what could happen in a wide neutral shoe with plenty of cushioning.
- A larger size. I’m pretty sure my feet swell when I run. A lot. I’d ideally like to be measured, run on the store treadmill for awhile, and then be re-measured, but they probably don’t want me jeopardizing it all day.
Anyway. Moving on. There was a birthday celebration at work this afternoon, so I was planning on having cake as an afternoon snack. (Yup.) Buuut, I went, and it was white cake with white frosting—booooring, and not worth the sugar binge. I went back to my office and opted for a Luna Bar instead.
I’m not a white chocolate fan AT ALL, but I really like these. Huh.
Came home. We got a wedding gift! Hello, new salad bowl. May I fill you with spinach?
I also got a very fancy candle as an early wedding gift from a co-worker today! Totally sweet.
I looove candles (and so does Tim) and this one smells awesome. It’s orange/vanilla scent, so think grown-up creamsicle.
And for fun, Tim and I get 8904543 mailings a week from the Missouri Bar Association. We got one today that we both laughed at:
We’re down to four RSVP stragglers. Come on, guys!
What’s something that made you laugh today?
