A lot of nights I have the crazy insomina thing, I wake up in the middle of the night and am wide awake for a couple of hours, I have been up now since 3:30am and it is now 5:44am!! That would usually SUCK for getting up for work but not today, took a couple of vacation days to be home with kiddos on Spring Break so at least I will be able to take a nap later in the day!! I have also used this time to catch up on some reading of blogs (see list of giveaways below :)!!) and some dvr recordings! One of my ALL time favorite shows is BIggest Loser, that show is really what I give credit to my journey in running. I do NOT mean any harm in this statement but if those people can go from the shape they are in and end up running a marathon (at the end of the show) in about 6 months time, why can't I run!!?? That my friends is what made me make the decision to "try" to run last summer by doing 5k's. I signed up for every local 5k that I could and the half marathon this spring, WOW how far I have came.
I still haven't resumed a running schedule since the half a couple of weeks ago :(!! For what ever reason my legs still hurt when I try to run again ( ran 1 mile one day and 2 miles another day and hurt the next day), they have the tired feeling while I am running. I am guessing that is something I am just going to have to run thru. I am doing a 5k next weekend and it is on one of my not so favorite courses due to being VERY hilly so we will see how that goes. I have also been on the search for some new shoes. Right now I have Asics Gel1140 and really like them but they are really close the the 300mile mark so it is time to start looking! I have considered trying some Brooks, they seem to resemble asics alot but I haven't tried any on yet. Any thoughts on GOOD running shoes? What's your favs?
