I decided to treat myself to a new pair of shoes and alternate the old pairs with the new one. I picked up a pair of trusty old Asics...I have worn out 3 pairs of the Nimbus series. This time, instead of the running store, I went to Running Shoe Finder on Runnersworld and after trying out a few of the 57 recommended matches at Sports Authority, decided to go with Asics Gel Phoenix. I like the soft, pliable feel of Asics and the gel cushioning. I like its looks too...I prefer more color than white on my running shoes. It was on sale, and I almost bought 2 pairs...but managed to stop myself in time.
Spinning class was exhausting today. My legs felt like lead. I was diverted for a while by the teacher's "humorous" story involving blood tests and fecal matter, which I will spare you the details of; but I staggered off the bike an hour later, wondering what makes me crazy enough to do 9 miles and spinning class on the same day.
Monday: 7 miles, spinning and BodyWorks
Wednesday: 9 miles and spinning
I am going to disappear for the rest of the week...my brother is visiting and there's lots planned for the weekend.
Happy Easter / Passover, all!
