For Christmas I bought myself a pair of Vibram Five Finger running shoes. I just did my 3rd run in them today and I am still not sure about them.
My big toe on both feet keeps rubbing funny on a seam or something and feels very sore after my run.
I don’t want to make it seem that I am over doing the trying new shoes because I am not. I actually restarted the couch to 10k program solely to do a slow transition into these shoes. I am not going to give up just yet.
I did my run at the YMCA again today because it is super cold out.
Tomorrow or Sunday I plan to go for a 3-4 mile run but I am going to wear my “normal” shoes for that lol. I am just waiting for January to be over so the gym classes clear out again so I can have room to do the moves.
Today I did some reading in my new book that my kids got me for Christmas.
I hope that all of this cross training will help me stay injury free this year.
What sucked was that I lost track of time reading and missed my chance to sneak off to the gym for a bit. I will go tomorrow I promise.
I did manage to do Day 2 of my 30 day workout plans so it wasn’t a total loss.
Today I took my first steps to becoming a better me. It is going to be hard and at times I am going to want to quit but I am worth it.
I started my day being a bum and watching tv but around 9:30 I got my butt motivated and headed off to the gym. I had my run done around 11 and had most of the rest of the day to be lazy.
This was my first over 3 mile run since my stress fracture in September as well as my first run of the year. It was a struggle mentally and physically but I did it and I know I can do it again.
I am loving my new shirt that I got for Christmas lol.
I also downloaded a few new apps to do at home on my off days. I got 30 day squats, 30 day abs, 30 day arms, 30 day cardio, and 30 day pushups. Because today is Janurary 1st I started them all on beginner level 1 and went for it. It wasn’t very pretty but I got it done and will do it again tomorrow.
I also plan to try to make it to a class at the gym tomorrow so hopefully I can do both with working 8 hours and having kids at home as well. I am not about to give up on the second day either.
We can do this…
