Running and Shoe Update
Since my last update, I had to take off for three weeks to go help my dad as he was recovering from back surgery. Since Wal-Mart doesn’t have a beautiful gym in Charlotte like they have in Bentonville, and it was topping 100F nearly every day I was there, I didn’t run for the entire three weeks. By the time I got back to Bville, and got to the gym, it was almost 4 weeks. A month! No running for a month. Do you know what that does to your endurance? It kills it. So, um, I’m starting back very slowly and to jumpstart that, I went and bought a new pair of running shoes. My Brooks Adrenalines were nice, but I went with a new brand this time and got…I don’t even remember. How sad is that?!? Anyway, I’ve put a few miles on them (yay!), but I’m not back up to 6-mi runs yet. The anemia issue has reared its head again and I’ve spent most of this week laying around feeling whiny and nauseous.
