It’s the end of Sunday Funday! I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! I am still a bit sad I wasn’t in Minneapolis this weekend to visit with my friends, but I know I will be there again soon!
I am going to preface my feeling of defeat with a quick weekend recap:
Food Calories: 1930
Workout: C25K My Way!
Distance: 1.25 miles
Calories burned: 231
Food Calories: 1535 (There might be a Skinny Cow ice cream in my future – Additional 150)
Normally Sunday is my rest day. Okay, okay… I had a lot of “rest days” in March! One day at a time I am really tying to turn that around. I worked out Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday last week. Without a workout yesterday I knew I had to do something today!
I ventured out to my new favorite park with intentions of running at least 2 miles, but I really wanted to push for 3! As you can see from the numbers above, I didn’t make it 2 miles. The weather was perfect, certainly nothing for me to complain about! I just could not get comfortable. My legs were achy, my feet felt heavy. I just couldn’t do it. Today, I was defeated by my run!
I left the park and I was really upset with myself. I know a huge part of the problem is my shoes. They are Nike trial shoes; they are thick, rugged and pretty heavy. I went to a running store I was fitted, but those are a bit more than I can afford right now.
What do I do? What shoes can I buy at a regular department store that might not be so out of my budget right now? The first paycheck I get as soon as I land a full time job will be spent at the running store for a pair of shoes specially fitted for my feet!
