Huh…where did the weekend go? I hope everyone’s weekend was good. I just wish my weekend would have seemed a little longer.
I had a pretty good weekend considering that my pesky lungs were giving me troubles. Saturday I was sore in the morning and a bit of SOB in the afternoon (mainly because my neighbors where trying to smoke us out, leaf burning sucks). Sunday was a bit better but still a little rough in the morning but the afternoon was much better. I even ventured. Son and I went to the park.
Well I finally got out there for some training. I should have been training last week but my lungs thought otherwise. I did not wear my GPS watch for this one but I did complete my well used 4.32 mile loop, which just happens too go by the park. I also pushed my son in the Bob Stroller and I most say this stroller was made for exercising. It really felt good to get back out there.
I also tried my new shoes out that I bought in St. Louis a couple of weeks ago. They are the Vibram FiveFingers KSO and socks from Injinji Socks. It has been interesting to walk near bare footed on the roads that I travel with cushy shoes. Yes, I can feel everything that I step on, but the shoe deadens some of the sharpness of stepping on rocks. I did find it quite comfortable on mulch surfaces, like the one I encountered at the park. My heels hurt though from the almost zero padding of the shoe. If anything, I am either going to get stress fractures or tougher feet by walking in these shoes. Also, I kind of wish I had bought micro socks instead of the mini-crew and not white ones either. I look like I have nerdie feet in the picture!
Well, that’s it for this post. I wish you a happy productive week! Be Well!
