I can't even believe there are only 25 days left until the Tough Mudder. While I feel like I'm doing a good job preparing for it, I really have no idea what to expect! Yikes.
My arms and legs are sore from Tuesday's workout and massage appointment, so today was a rest day. Tomorrow I'll be down at my mom's house, and I'm running with one of my Tough Mudder teammates. I get to break in my new sneaks! I went to the running store after school today, and the guy there was SOOOO helpful. He answered all my silly questions and I ended up with a pair of ASICS Gel-Kayano 18s. I'm really looking forward to getting back into ASICS - I liked them the first time around, but then I moved on to something with a little more support. But I'm hoping that these work for me and help my knees get better. Interesting thing I learned - the Gel-Kayanos are the comparable ASICS to the Brooks Adrenaline (which I was running in) but there is twice as much padding in the ASICS. So I'm thinking that my knees are going to be happier.
Also, when the guy checked out my old shoes, he saw that there were little "wrinkles" in the side. This meant that the cushioning was breaking down, so it was definitely time for some new shoes. I'm glad I went! And I got 10% off because I'm a member of the local running club. Those shoes are not cheap!
Spring break is here! Time to bust out the crazy workouts.
Today was pretty good eating wise. I did cave and eat a bag of peanut M&Ms - I felt awful after I did it, but dang that chocolate was just what I needed at that point in the day. Enchiladas for dinner again - mmm.
- enjoy my morning facial (one of my favorite ways to treat myself)
- meeting with my financial planner
- dinner with mum and brother
