Oranges 2 Oranges

Looking Back at 5K and Moving Forward…

Week 5 is underway! Also, dress picture posted…

The first report for Week 5 is up, on my Week 5 page. I also updated my prior post about trying on my wedding dress after 10 years. I finally reached the weight I was then, and it even fit better this time than it did on my wedding day! You can see the photo toward the bottom of my Week 4 page.

Here’s a link to an article by Dave Bailey for all of us beginning runners (and maybe some entertainment for the old pros) that I found thanks to a post by JennerVT over at the Running Ahead boards: At 33, I Suddenly Got the Running Bug.

I hope everyone’s week is going well!


Week Four Done…and My Wedding Dress Fits!

UPDATE: Photo is now posted of me in my wedding dress.  😛

Testing my New Nike+!

Though I don’t plan on using it regularly until I finish at least the next few weeks of the C25K, when I am doing longer run times and not short intervals, I thought I’d make sure everything was working right, so I hooked it all up and did a quick 6-minute walk/run to see if it would all be captured. This is a day off the C25K for me, but I couldn’t resist testing it today. Here’s my chart for the short test:

My New Running Shoes

My shoes finally came last night around 7pm. What a wait! It had been two weeks since I ordered them, and though the company from which I bought them offers free returns if the size is wrong, I didn’t want to have to go through all that again. They are Brooks Radius 7’s. They fit perfectly! They are very light and soft. I was surprised. I even thought that maybe there was only one shoe in the box!

Though it takes getting used to walking in them, they were like running on clouds on the treadmill when I used them at 8pm. Yes, I did my W2D1 C25K session way after dinner! I was so pumped to have the shoes finally that I put them on an hour beforehand while we watched Kitchen Nightmares online (we love Gordon Ramsay). More about the run on my Week Two page
