Just got back from North Carolina this evening. We made a trip up yesterday morning to my cousin's house. They were having a birthday party for their son that will be turning 5 on Tuesday. It's always so nice to spend time with them. It's not often enough, but when we do get to see them, we always have a good time. While I was up there, I had the chance to run with my cousin this morning. Unfortunately, I didn't have any of my running clothes or shoes with me. My cousin was able to outfit me with clothes and since I had been planning to buy a new pair of running shoes anyway, I ran up to the shoe store and found a pair that I liked. I had been needing a new pair because I've been rubbing blisters on the fronts of my toes. I was told that my shoes were too small for me and I needed bigger ones, so I went up a size.
Here are my new shoes:
I love them! I love the colors and I love how breathable the shoes are. They are pretty lightweight and feel great on my feet! I'm very happy with my purchase! What's even better is that I have a running skirt that they match!
I also got a new heart rate monitor this weekend. I ordered it from Amazon on Thursday and it was delivered while we were gone over the weekend. I already had a Timex HRM, but I wanted a little better one that would maybe give me a more accurate reading for my HR. So I ordered the Polar FT7. Here it is:
I've heard a lot of great things about Polar heart rate monitors. Many of the women in my WW message board have this particular model and love it. So I decided to go with everyone's recommendation and finally ordered it. I already have it programmed and ready to go. Can't wait to try it out!
Well, I already got in a 3 mile walk this morning followed up by an almost 2 mile run, but since it's Sunday, it's Yoga time! I'm going to be doing level 2 of Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown tonight. I'm looking forward to being able to try out my HRM. Can't wait!
So long for today...
