Are we there yet?
I tried the new shoes again with the heel lock. I tried it yesterday afternoon and thought, "hey cool!" I even walked around a bit thinking it would work. I put them on, walked downstairs, even got on the treadmill and started running. I made it .041 miles and decided I would do more harm than good so I put the old clunkers on again. Any breaking-in suggestions?
I tried an experiment in visualization. The kids were watching Monsters vs Aliens and I was running. Yes, this is becoming a family affair. haha. OKOK, so while I was running and the miles were passing, I imagined the different points along the route from here to the lake and back. It felt like forever to get out there and then I had to turn around and get back. I really wanted to run 4 miles again since I was at 2 buffets in the last 3 meals. Vardotrichic, I'm sure your body would freak out knowing what I ate...pizza, potatoes, breadsticks, broasted chicken, the works. :) My body started to override my brain so I quit at the minimum 3 miles and walked until I got to 600 calories. I really really want the shoes to work!
I've run 5 days straight so maybe I'll take tomorrow off and run again Tues.
Details: 608 calories, 188 fat calories, 31 min @ 6mph, 14 min @ 3mph
