You know those weekends where everything is really fun, and things go well? Well that was this weekend for me. Thankfully! I did some bike riding (beach cruising, don’t worry, I’m not turning to the dark side just yet!) some running and had some fun times with some of my best friends. You see, to me, sometimes life it all about just enjoying the little things. I don’t know why I feel so perky and sunshiney today, since it is Monday and my fun weekend is over, but sometimes when you take a look around in your life, it’s amazing how many great people you can find. Taking those people for granted is just not a way to live life.
So my 20 miler, yea was a 16 miler, and turned into I’m buying new shoes on the way home. I wasn’t planning on getting new shoes since I got new ones about 100 miles ago, BUT I couldn’t take it anymore, and it was so painful. The 16 miles went great, and I did feel really strong and I wasn’t tired and didn’t have any bathroom issues at all which was a huge plus, but I knew I just couldn’t keep going, especially if I was going to get new shoes and could run more in comfortable shoes the next day, which is exactly what I did. The shoes I got are the same kind I had before but two sizes bigger. They seem to fit much better and I really think once my toes heal, they will be perfect for running. I really like the vomeros cushion and stability for my feet. What I don’t like is the fact that the colors I got to chose from was purple and yellow. UGH. Oh well, I’ll get new ones soon enough, so it’s not that big of deal.
Once my toes heal, I really think that the new shoes will work out perfectly, which I’m excited about. My poor toes. On the 16 miler, they were hurting every step, and I kept thinking, of all things to be hurt, my feet, which are pounding on the ground every step of the way. Never realized how important the toes are! After the run they were beat up like usual and allowing them the rest of the weekend to heal was smart, and hopefully there will be no more talk of toe problems here.
I hope everyone had a great weekend as well and remember, I will post the winner of the iFitness belt on Wednesday morning and I also have another very interesting post coming up. Seriously, it’s interesting to me at least :)
