Running Confessions

I ran six miles on Sunday. That's all I've ran since my half.
I haven't been interested in running otherwise. I think I've got post-race blues. I knew that this would happen and it's one of the reasons why I signed myself up for another half so shortly after so I would stay motivated and on track. I am kicking myself over this somewhat and glad I did it at the same time.

I've been thinking about the fact that I need to run -hello! half-marathon in another two weeks!- and how I could get myself out of this funk. Thankfully, I had runner's style envy over running skirts while I ran that half. I ordered one a few days after the race and it came today.

Helloooooo running motivation!

And yes, I admit that sometimes what gets me out the door is the fact that I have new clothes or shoes to try out. I'm not above it, nor do I have shame about it.

And on a vain retail-motivated note, I get way more excited than necessary about a new pair of running shoes. As in, I MIGHT obsessively look at my potential new shoes at least once a day.


And guess who is due for new shoes the day after her half-marathon???


And speaking of shoes, I have decided to start alternating between a neutral shoe and a stability shoe. With the weight loss and me getting further into this whole runnig thing, my pronation has naturally started to correct itself.

So I'll be wearing a Mizuno Wave Inspire 9s and Mizuno Wave Riders 16s.

I am seriously considering training for a full blown marathon.

Back to the new shoes thing, there are new Mizuno colors that come out July 5th. I'm not sure when the new models come out, but they're out soon too!!

I realize how nerdy this obsession is, just in case you were wondering.


Happy Thursday!!
