Congrats, Jen! Send me your name, mailing address, and bra size (Wow. Don't think I've ever asked anyone to tell me that straight up before.) via the "contact me" form on my blog. You are going to love this bra.
Sooooooo, my feet hurt. I've officially grounded myself from running until I can at least walk without pain. I'm hoping I can hop back into my training schedule on Tuesday. For now, I am resting and cycling.
In fact, I just walked upstairs from completing a 1 hour and 40 minute bike ride. Woah. Still can't believe that happened. I figure it would take me that long to run 13 miles, and that's what was on my training schedule for my long run this week. We'll see if I'm sore in a whole new way tomorrow.
I hope so, because that will make me feel like I did something hard.
I'm still icing, stretching, and- miracle of miracles- I was able to get new shoes.
Y'all should always buy your shoes from a running store. If you are in Northern Utah, you should go to Salt Lake Running Company.
No lie- I walked into the store with my New Balance running shoes that had 120+ miles on them, no box, no reciept, and told them the shoes were causing me foot pain and I would like to exchange them if I could, and they did!
I almost cried from joy. I will not be able to take the shoes back that I got in exchange, but that's fine. I am now sporting my first pair of Nike's.
I also ended up getting my first set of inserts for arch support (I over pronate) as well as pads to help the metatarsalgia. I feel like my feet have had a comfort makeover.
So- here's to the best! And here's to leaving town and not packing my running shoes so that I will be able to keep my promise to myself of NOT RUNNING until next week...
