I spent the holiday up in Connecticut. We came back yesterday afternoon, and I was able to meet up with one of my best friends. Usually we meet up and go for a run, but I wasn’t going to put her through that! We met up at Barnes & Noble and chatted. My 30th b’day is less than a month away so we were getting some ideas for that.
Today I went to return my Nike shoes, and was happy that they took them back even though I wore them outside. I bought a pair of Asics that seem to have extra support and that should help me get through the next 2.5 months with cushioning. It was a different employee and she didn’t seem too thrilled that I was returning shoes that were already worn. She helped me to find a new pair and her take was that I supinate majorly – just from looking at my shoes. Sounds like there are better stores out there that watch you run and look at your shoes. If these shoes don’t work out for me, I’ll be looking for another running store next. I ran about 5 miles in them and they seemed good, but we’ll see! My legs are pretty tired, and I think I have some sciatica going on down my right leg, so I can see this week being a bit of a slowdown. I’m semi looking forward to yoga tomorrow, but I should probably find a pre-natal class to start going to so that I don’t overextend myself.
Summary of week 27: Running/ Walking/Jogging 34.6 miles (6:18:40),
2 days of lifting and 1 day of crosstraining on the elliptical.
November running : 155.5 miles (28:52:37)
Hope everyone’s travels home were safe and that thanksgiving was good!
