Let me get the whining right out of the way…
The shoes are no good. Yes, they fit perfect and are very comfortable. Until I ran in them. Instead of trying to explain what it is about them, let me just say that I’m back to searching for an everyday, light-weight, minimal yet cushion-y running shoe. In the meantime I’ll be trying to eek a few more miles out of my old PF2s, and alternating with the Newtons and the Ghosts.
I might be a wee bit OCD with running shoes.
Ahem, anyways… Today’s run was an easy 5k. Well, other than the shoes it was an “easy” 5k ;) I did the same intervals as yesterday, but upped the pace a little bit to finish in under 30 minutes.
Tomorrow I’m going to slow it down and shoot for 10 miles. Instead of listening to music, I’m either going to finish up season 7 of Doctor Who or listen to an audio book.
I joined Kindle Unlimited on Amazon last night, and the book I started listening to (Pines by Blake Crouch) is really good so far! I was trying to read (listen to) Odd Thomas, but it’s so slow-going that it puts me to sleep. Definitely not the case with Pines!
This morning’s weigh in was 117.4 and here’s what I ate:
- Breakfast: 2 Tbsp peanut butter
- Lunch: Chipotle Black beans w/roasted red peppers and scallions, Minute brand Whole Grain Medley, and Red Hot Blues (yes, I eat this almost every day)
- Dinner: Whole wheat sandwich thin with lettuce, tomato, onion, and a Nature’s Promise Chipotle Black Bean veggie burger, homemade potato wedges (recipe HERE) and BBQ sauce.
