I lost the battle with my alarm clock! It won, sleep won.
I was fully planning to get up at 5/5:30am to got for a run this morning, but I just couldn’t do it. I instead rolled out of bed around 6:45am and got ready for work. I don’t want to make excuses, but things have been difficult this week. My roommate’s little dog died when he was struck by a car after he escaped from our yard. So the house has a could of sadness over it right now.
As for tomorrow, I have (wishful) plans to run in the morning. I am going to the Indians v. Giants game tonight (this will mean more food posts) with some old roommates from college… so we can see what time I actually crawl into bed… and what time I can actually crawl out of it. My plan for tomorrow is a 3-4 mile slow and steady run/walk. I don’t have any definite plans, so even if I wake up late I can hit the gym whenever.
I also plan to hit up the Road Runner Store tomorrow. They sent me an email for summer savings of 20% off (I want to check out some accessories, bras, socks, etc). I signed up for their VIP program 2 weeks ago when I purchased my new running shoes (Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11). They have this nifty Shoe Dog Perfect Fit Finder. It’s really neat. They essentially use a bunch of different tests to find the best shoe for your foot and for the way you run. My roommate and I both got fitted that day for shoes. Best of all, Road Runner has an amazing return/exchange policy for the shoes. They told us 90-days to return and they will help us find another pair. I think I’ll know by 90-days if the Brooks are good for me. PS – my first run with these shoes was AMAZING (every other run has been great too… so I think these are a keeper).
