Today was quite a day. Or at least, I’m feeling rather triumphant. Last week I purchased Runner’s World Complete Book of Women’s Running. I read all the parts to get started, and today I went to Super Jock ‘n Jill and got a not-too expensive pair of running shoes. I even jogged in them before I bought them. I then picked up some sports bras and shorts (and a nifty visor.) The last thing was the Nike+ SportsBand, a nifty little gadget that clips to my shoe, and a wrist band that plugs into the USB of my computer that works as a pedometer and more. It connects to the Nike website and I can track my progress, and even set up a training program.
I’m pretty excited. I found out today that I have some pronation in my right foot, and my new shoes are supposed to counter that a bit. I’m glad I’ll have the sports bras, just because the brief jog I had earlier has made me a bit achey. I took my Nike+ out for a calibration walk, so I’m already having fun.
This is my last week at my current job. The week following I go to Chicago for 2 wks. I’m looking forward to a walk/jog down Lake Shore Drive. Tomorrow is diving again – with a smaller wetsuit.
Life is good, y’all.
