happy feet!

there are a couple of things that need to happen in order to have happy feet.


pick out colors.


endure the tickling. Jenna has super ticklish feet…she struggles through this part of pedicures.


show off your finished toes. yesterday was amazing here. 60*+, not a cloud in the sky. I did wear flip flops and capris.

today. we’re not so lucky. and this definitely happens every time Jenna and I have our monthly pedicures. no snow…yet. But its definitely cold enough to snow! The day isn’t over yet. Winking smile


be able to run in your favorite shoes without getting blisters. The first time I took off on a run in these I got a blister on my heel. Not fun! So…I switched out shoes. And the other shoes worked GREAT. No blisters. I felt good until I was about 7 days of running in them. I started feeling pain in my right foot…right along my arch. It was like STRESS FRACTURE kind of pain. No, no! This can’t be happening. wahhh! So, I decided to switch back since my blister had healed. I just tightened the laces. I’ve done two solid runs on them and no pain.


my workout today was solid.
a short walk warm-up; 3:30 at 4.5mph
1 mile run at 6.0 mph; 10:00 mile
2 mile run (short distance pace) at 7.0 mph; 8:34 mile
1 mile run at 6.0 mph; 10:00 mile
a short cool down; 3:30 at 4.5 mph
total time=44.25; total distance 4.5 miles.

I came home and made a quick breakfast.

fruit, pear and apple

add to oatmeal with a little brown sugar and nutmeg. most tasty bowl of oatmeal I’ve had yet! I only had room for half of each, so I saved the other two halves for a snack later today.

can’t forget to re-hydrate. I saw this on Kath Eats Real Food. I thought she was crazy, but then I tried it. BEST. IDEA. EVER! It makes drinking water so much easier for me.

I’m off to clean the house, right after I finish this weeks Biggest Loser. Company is coming on Saturday…and it might just take me up until the last minute to get this disaster spick and span.

thats happend to me before too! I have to just wear my shoes around for a while before running in them. Its so scary when you feel that twinge. Speaking of feet, I need a pedicure BAD! Bruised toenails are NOT attractive!
