Three Thing Thursday

17 Feb

It was a beautiful day in Chicago today!! I am the happiest girl ever when it is nice out 🙂

Workout: I ran 4 miles tempo (8:30, 7:49, 8:15, 8:28). My “tempos” are supposed to be between 8:10-8:20..clearly I am not very good at this but I was really happy that my “easy” warm up and cooldown miles were both 8:30’s..thats goal HMP and it felt really quite easy! I also did 3 miles of walk/running with my client.  I am having the same debate as Caitlin in trying to figure out if these should count towards my weekly mileage or not.  They were much slower than my normal pace but I was still running..any opinions?

 

4 miles: 33:04

 

Best part was NO shin pain and only a little Achilles tightness! Whoo hoo! I am getting new shoes this weekend so hopefully that will take care of any lingering problems.

And now..3 things Thursday!

  • Thing One: I have a headband obsession.  I seriously wear a headband most days of the week if not all.  I think it started when I began my big girl job because I barely spend any time getting ready so putting a headband on saves time on attempting to fix my hair.  I think I have 5 with bows on them..normal for a 22 year old?

So many headbands

  • Thing Two: This weekend I am going home to Springfield for girls weekend! Every year my mom and her two sisters plus my grandma get together for a weekend of shopping, pedicures and food! I have attended in the past but it’s been awhile so I am excited to go home! I also have big plans to run 8 miles with my sister who is doing the half marathon with me so that will be an adventure as well!
  • Thing Three: I really need a camera so I can stop taking crappy iphone pictures and show you guys pretty pictures 🙂 Any recommendations out there? I always break cameras so I need something durable…and preferably on the cheaper side so when I do end up breaking it I won’t be out that much money.  I’m going to call it an investment in my blogging..I am thinking I should use my tax refund to buy it..so I should probably file those…

Now I am going to attempt to find a fro-yo place.  In Champaign where I went to college there was the best make your own Fro-yo place called Coco Mero..mmm so yummy.  I have had a craving for it for the last few weeks so since its WARM here today I am going to get some!

Any recommendations on camera’s or good shoes for over pronators?

    I think if your running at all it should count but just walking shouldn’t. New shoes should for sure help! And I love headbands, they’re all adorable no worries =)

    are the cameras for over pronators? because you need one with shaky-cam control. in all seriousness, this month is the best time to get a good deal on cameras so go for a purchase!

    I over pronatta and have liked Brooks a lot in the past but sometimes they come out with new models that end up flopping (ie: model 1 and 2 are great but when they update model 3, it’s not great so then they come up with a whole new shoe which is great for the first two years again…)

    Asics are a pretty reliable brand and I’ve never had a problem with their GT line (I think they’re on 2150? or I’m not sure GT 21##).
