Run Baby Run

After my run a few hours ago, I've officially logged 10.5 miles this week. Not bad, eh.

I've also completed my first week of C25K. Woot woot. Technically there's only three sessions the first week, but since I've already been training a few weeks, I ran the day three session a couple times.

My biggest struggle thus far has been the killer shin splints. I've always been prone to the bastards, I don't know why I thought this time would be different.

I made a big mistake in beginning to train in old Nike Shox. What the hell, Anne. Not to mention they are like 7 years old.

Big mistake.

However as of last Sunday, I've been running in these hot mamas.

Hell ya, bitch. That's what I say everytime I put those puppies on.

Now that they've got the 10 miles on 'em, they are feeling even better. I'm so thankful I came across Amber's post about investing in good kicks.

What a tremendous difference that has made!

When I first broke the news to J about wanting to drop some serious $$ on some nice shoes, being the super logical man that he is he says to me, "now babe, when we go to look at some, I want you to choose the ones that feel good. I don't want you picking a pair just because they're cute."(insert Anne groan) "Ugh, ok Jon. Because that's sooo how I am. I'm not stupid, you know."

(Me thinking to myself, damnit, he knows me too well sometimes!)

Well lucky me, I ended up with an amazing pair of kicks that feel amazing as well. Hell ya.

Moral of the story for any of you runners out there: invest the $$. And thank me later.
