Good morning and happy Thursday!
It has been a great week, but I am ready for the weekend to be here!
Tuesday morning I met up with Joellyn for a nice run. It was just an “extra” run for me (hence not on my training plan), so I went out completely for fun, and had a blast.
We ran on the Riverwalk- which I have run countless times- but it was so great not to care about my pace or time and just enjoy the sights!
Joellyn lives much closer to the office, so she offered to let me get ready for work at her house. Afterwards I made a much-needed coffee run. I chose to try out Kahwa coffee. It was great! And really reasonably priced.
After work, I had to get to my Tempo Tuesday session at Fit2Run. I met the nicest girl there too! Her name is Andrea, and she just joined the training group. She is training for Honolulu in December. Lucky!
I had 35 minutes on the schedule for the day. It was a great run, even if it was like 200 degrees out.
I decided to work from home yesterday, as I had a few things I needed to get done and just wanted the peace and quiet.
At 5:00 I started getting ready for some fun…the Fit2Run Fun Run that is. 😉
Hoka was sponsoring this week, and brought out a bunch of shoes for everyone to demo.
I went ahead and gave ’em a try; hey you only live once. Hehe! I was given a pair of the Bondi style, and immediately after putting them on was amazed at how comfy and cushiony they were.
Post-run, I have to say I am not a fan. Yes, they were very comfy, but I felt wobbly while running in them. And my form just felt off; also, my knees and even my hips started to hurt by the end of the 3.1 miles.
And, just for fun… I just bought the cutest purse. You can check it out here!
Question of the day
(It’s a random one) Do you use compression socks and/or sleeves?
And, if so which ones?
