First day of spring…ish

Welcome, spring… oh wait it’s snowing. Never mind.

I had been entertaining ideas of running today’s 5-miler outside, because 5 miles on the treadmill is a long, long time to run in place. But thanks to the snow and slush and rain I was stuck inside. Anyway, I did finish the run, 5 miles in 1:02:40, and somehow I even managed to pull of negative splits– a nice bonus! The weather is supposed to be nice for tomorrow’s 7 miler; that’ll definitely be outside.

My shoes are giving me a little grief though. They’re a bit short and my big toenail might be rubbing slightly, plus my feet keep falling asleep (progressively loosening the laces helps for a while). I mean, I can put up with them, but it would be so nice to just have a pair of shoes I don’t have to mess around with. I’m envious of people with normal feet (whatever that is) that don’t play Russian roulette every time they buy a new pair of shoes. If I could pull it off, I’d run barefoot just so I didn’t have to deal with it!

  1. I know how you feel! I always spend the first two weeks worrying my new shoes will kill my feet.

      True enough! But some folks have feet that shoemakers don’t accommodate at all. I’m lucky in that I can usually go to men’s shoes to get the width I need (as long as it comes in 7.5).
