Then I went out to look for new running shoes. I found a pair of Adidas that fit well, the Adidas Swyft Cushion. The only thing was, I needed more room in the toe box, so I tried to order a size bigger but the computers were down. So I went to another store and found a pair of New Balance I thought might work, but I'm holding out hoping that I can get the Adidas. If they're still not able to order them by tomorrow, I think I'll just pick up the New Balance shoes and maybe see about getting the Adidas as a back up or alternate pair. Who knows. Either way, at least I'm back to buying sale and clearance shoes instead of up-marked, high-tech shoes! haha More money for food!
Let's see, what's next? Oh, I had a meeting for Girl Scouts. Yes, I'm still doing a bit of work for them, but nothing major. Thankfully it was a beautiful day so we went to Starbucks and sat outside in the sun.
Then I went for a bike ride. Since I'm going to be working during the day tomorrow and will be on the weekends as well, I figured I'd try to find a way to ride to work. I google mapped the directions, made some alterations, wrote them down, and headed out. Eleven point four miles later, I made it to work where I got greeted by "And here's Lance Armstrong himself!" It's funny how people of different active backgrounds see each other's sports and workouts as incredibly difficult while think nothing of their own. But overall, the roads were fine and I'm going to be up and out the door by 8AM tomorrow to be to work by 9AM. Hooray for saving gas! I just have to figure out a way to stop on my way back and pick up my new running shoes; haven't figured that out quite yet.
I got home after all of this, showered, ate a snack and decided that instead of heading to the gym to swim or out for a run, I should sit down and catch up on all of your blogs. Three hours later, I don't even think I've made a dent! haha It gets more and more intriguing every week with new twists in your lives, new PRs or races, funny motivation stories, stories about your kids, stories about hard times you're going through, and even the simply one-picture posts of something hilarious from your day. I'm sure you all can tell when I finally sit down to write the Week in Review because you start getting comments on last Friday's blogs and wonder "where the heck has he been for the last week?" Yes, I live under a rock. As long as the Earth is considered a rock and you call the Southern hemisphere "up." Then I live under that very large rock.
I'm into Monday's blog posts, so I'll finish them all tomorrow after work. But let me just tell you, you're pure awesomeness puts me to work every week! And I love it!!
Keep being awesome!
Stay fit. Stay healthy.
