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


Where are my shoes?!?!?

I’ve been waiting two weeks for my new running shoes to come. After several unfruitful emails to the company shipping them, UPS finally has them in their hands — even on their truck this morning — yet, the UPS truck drove right past my house today. Is the driver lost? Is it on a later truck? I need to do my C25K W2D1 today, and my energy is running out FAST. I’ll have to wait until after dinner to do this, which I am not happy about. Stay tuned…


Week One…Done!

I’m happy to say that I just finished Day 3 (of 3) of the first week of the C25K. I’ve talked about it here:

Next week I’m going to start creating pages for each of the weeks, for easier reference. Each page will be listed in the righthand sidebar.  —>

Thanks for coming by!  😉
