What I planned on doing today:
sleep in until at least 9
organize the bedroom / hang up clothes / do laundry
12-miler at Town Lake with a fellow blogger from Reese’s
break in my new sneakers
What I actually ended up doing today:
woke up before 7 bc of the pooch we are dog-sittng
host a Super Bowl Sunday party
make spinach dip & cook a huge vat of chili
no running, resulting in a goose egg for weekly mileage
bought another pair of sneakers
I’m most bummed about missing the Town Lake run, I really was looking forward to meeting her! Hopefully we’ll be able to get together prior to the Austin 1/2 before we take on the hills of that atrocious course.
Okay, so I didn’t technically buy an additional pair of sneakers; I’m returning the ones I bought yesterday. I went to RunTex with the intention of purchasing the Asics Landreth. The salesman strongly suggested I steer clear of them since my overpronation (even with the orthotics) was terrible. I clearly needed a bit more support than those would provide me. I convinced him I surely wasn’t interested in the Kayano either, since spending $140 on a pair of running sneakers makes me want to throw up a little bit. So Saucony it was.
While online today reading reviews on the new kicks, I came across a website advertising them for $50 cheaper than what I paid. And in a
better sexier color. With free shipping. And after some research, I discovered a 15% off discount code. Out came the credit card, and those babies were mine. I’ll be returning the other ones this week.
I also purchased a pair of black laces for them – hotness. AND with the money I saved, I have my eye on a new gym bag 😉
Currently I’m halfway through a bottle of Francis Coppola Claret and watching the Super Bowl halfheartedly. Not gonna lie, still bitter the Patriots couldn’t get it together against the Jets. Ugh. Anyway, Go Green Bay!!
How was your weekend? Any fabulous runs or PRs at races?
