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.

MIGHT.

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

Oh YEAH.

**************************
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!!
