This week’s runs: 60 min on Tuesday, 60 min today…Missed intervals yesterday morning due to staying up until 3am the night before.
Kim and I got started on our first mile, after the required 5 minutes of therapy on the way to the start. At the first mile, I was drenched. The second mile, my stomach was yelling at me. Raisin Bran is not my friend. I ate a bowl for dinner, and I guess it was a bit *too* much bran, as the first orchard we came to at mile 3, I had to take a little side trip. A cop drove by, and Kim waved him off. Nice.
Mile 3-5 was sluggish and painful.
Now, for the crux of the post. Mizunos. I have a love affair with them, and although they are good to me in the beginning of the relationship, they don’t last. They lie (hmm…I’m sensing a trend in my life). Each time, I get 200 miles max out of them. Then, they are done. No warning, no long goodbyes. Simply flatten. I thought it was my inserts. I don’t think so.
My question today…I have Nike Women’s Marathon in 4 weeks. Is it a bad idea to get shoes now? Honestly, I don’t think I have a choice. I’ve picked Mizunos so long, that I know the drill. It’s simply time.
Toenail. I think I’m losing one.
And now…I’m $50 away from my fundraising goal. So, I will run…In crappy or new shoes, with or without my toenail, because after all…nothing could be as bad as having leukemia. This 6 months has not been about me. At all.
