Life Happens

Thursday, July 12, 2012

So, I'm a little behind on blogging but I was so excited to log on today and catch up on posts! The past two weeks have been a whirlwind. Trip to Vegas, got engaged, Girl's trip to Dallas, my Birthday, and now back to exams (next one is Monday!) and looking into where my career is going. All this has been super fun and exciting but I didn't fit all my runs in. I knew coming back Monday would be hard....I wasn't expecting brutal! It's amazing to see how much consistency in running has played an integral part in improving my exercise ability over the past couple months. Just proof I need to keep it up! It's easy to get discouraged when the scale isn't changing but I'm trying to stay positive, as I know I'm getting stronger. So, even though my life feels like it's speeding up more than slowing down, I'm excited to get to the goal race and to start NoBo again this Fall! Another fresh start for all us!!

3 Weeks to Go!

Monday, July 9, 2012

I can't believe it but I am already 9 weeks into NoBo which means my very first goal race, the Bedlam 5k, is right around the corner!

July 28th at 7:30am to be exact.  I had a pretty nasty run in with shin splints during last Monday's run which was irritating.  Since there was no run on Weds due to the holiday I spent some time with the trusty foam roller.  I made it to the honor run on Saturday morning and that resulted in a good 3 mile run doing 4/3 intervals.  Not bad! 

I'm nice and sore today but fingers crossed this evening's run is a good one too!

Mama Got New Shoes!

Monday, July 2, 2012

I finally bit the bullet and bought new running shoes yesterday...

Brooks Ghost 5

They are a very comfortable neutral shoe, plus they're pretty. :)  If you're in the market for running shoes I highly recommend being fitted at your local runner's shop.  My favorite in Tulsa is Fleet Feet.  They can video your feet running on a treadmill and from there narrow down the shoe selection to the best fit for you.  I took my new shoes out for a test run yesterday, despite the heat silly me, and am very happy with them so far.  Looking forward to my NoBo run tonight!

It's All About Choice
