Tired Legs

Last night was another long night. After the gym, I ran some errands. I didn't get home until about 8 and then I had to do some stuff around the house (shower, eat, and things like that). By the time I was able to sit down and relax (for the 1st time), it was about 10.

One of the things I did when I got home was, make granola bars. I didn't have time to cut them up before bed, but they're waiting for my in the fridge (which I'll cut up soon). I love these in bite size pieces and in plain or vanilla greek yogurt. It's the best!

Hubs didn't sleep well last night. Which means, I didn't sleep well last night. I finished work and didn't really want to get my 6 miles in, but that's what happened last week, too. I laced up and went for a run. It was in incredibly slow run, but it was 4 miles! I think that if I run with tired legs, it will give me a preview of what my legs may feel like during my 1st half. If I can run with tired legs now, maybe I'll be use to it then (for my 1st half next month). I do give myself plenty of rest and I always ice and stretch afterwards.

When I got home, my shoes came off flying. Tonight is going to be an easy night. More chicken sandwiches for dinner and some catching up on the dvr.

I'm thinking about getting new shoes tomorrow. What brand is everyone wearing now? These are Mizunos. I love them, but I think they're cramping my toes and may be causing my blisters on my toes. I'm thinking either the same brand or Brooks (just a bigger size).


  1. I've been wearing Mizunos and they do tend to run about a half size small. I have been wearing the Wave Rider 13's and just bought the 14's and love them!

    Your granola bars look amazing!

  2. I currently have Asics, but I'm not completely sold on them yet. My all-time preference has been New Balance, but that stems from the fact that I often need wider shoes.

  3. I am catching up on blogs now so perhaps you've already gotten new shoes. I LOVE getting new shoes! I wear Nike's. They work so well for me. I definitely recommend getting fitted at a running store.
