Week 2 Day 1...Again

I had done Week 2 Day 1 on Wed. July 21st, then life happened and I was never able to start day 2.

I decided to restart Week 2 on Monday the 26th. I actually had someone running with me that day, so I was not listening to music, I just had the prompts on. Well...I realized that I do NOT know how to breath while running! It was horrible! I was actually kinda embarrassed! So now one of my main concentrations will have to be working on my breathing techniques.

Since I was more occupied on how horrible I sounded breathing, I was not concentrating on how I was running and my leg technique, so now....I have shin splints again! Arggg! It hurt to walk or stretch my legs yesterday!  I took my one day off and today I am actually starting to feel a little bit better, so I am considering running this evening or maybe tomorrow evening. I'm not sure. But I have even stayed off the elliptical, trying to get them to heal quicker.  I just feel like a bum now because I am not doing anything.

I have been considering buying some kinesio tape and learning how to tape my shins up for my runs. I will be looking into that.

Today I received my ChiRunning book!!! I am so excited to start reading this and learn new techniques on running properly! Hopefully this will even help my shin splints!

This morning I decided to try Healthy Tipping Point's Pancake Truffle Recipe! It was so good! After I made it, I realized it called for almond milk, and I had actually used Fat Free milk. It was still good though! I am interested in tasting the difference when I try it with the almond milk instead! I will have to make them again soon! They are easy to make, healthy, and yummy! :)

Hopefully I will be finishing week 2 this week and starting week 3. I have less than 4 months to get my act together before the Turkey Trot! :)

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful!
We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do!
It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option.
We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :)
And that's not all of the big news!
I also got a job!
It is an office job, where I will be doing t…

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :)
I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love...
My BOBRevolution SE!
I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here! :)

My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces!

They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes!
I love their moto!
Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray.
In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver.
This i the Personal Saver I carry it on my keychain everyw…
