New Shoes! #writeandrun31 Day 9

I mentioned yesterday that I’m on the hunt to find a new pair of PureFlow 2s and guess what?! Yep, I found some today! I don’t know why I hadn’t thought of checking the “Big Kids” sizes before now because not only was I able to get them in this awesome bright yellow color, but they were crazy cheap too! They should be here Monday or Tuesday, so I’ll report back once I get them on my greedy little feet! I can’t wait!!

And I LOVE the color!Today’s run was 3.5 miles of Level 5 Hills. I took it nice and easy, finishing in 38:33 (11mm pace – 5.5mph).

I’m loving the new Garmin so far! It’s very easy to use, and if I sit for too long, it “tells” me to “Move!” This would be the perfect watch if only it had Bluetooth. Since it doesn’t, I have to plug it into the computer to upload everything. Not that big of a deal :) The step count is a bit higher than what the Fitbit shows, but the calorie count matches. So I’m not sure which is more accurate, but they are close enough that I don’t really think it matters. In other words, bye-bye Fitbit.

That’s about it for today. Here’s what I ate:

  • Breakfast: Muesli with walnuts & non-dairy chocolate chips with 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • Lunch: Refried beans with roasted red peppers and scallions with my homemade chipotle sauce, and one of those Minute brand microwaveable cups of Whole Grain Medley (brown rice, barley and quinoa)
  • Dinner: Pueblo Pie with salsa, guacamole, and pretzel shells

And this morning’s weigh-in was 115.8
