|Eye on the prize!|
During yesterday's run it was apparent that I am in desperate need of new running shoes. I've been putting it off because, well, they cost money. But with two races coming up, I need shoes that won't tear up my feet. My current shoes only have about 250 miles on them, but two days in a row of running 5–6 miles and I'm on the verge of many blisters. I'm thinking I didn't choose my current shoes very wisely. Looks like I'll be heading to the running store on Wednesday.
Speaking of running shoes, am I the only one who has a problem with one foot being smaller (and therefore rubbing more in my shoes) than the other? My left foot is the red-headed stepchild of feet. Little bastard.
|You thought I'd be nice to your feet? HA!|
Last night Alyssa mentioned to me that after she totally blows me out of the water and finishes a half Ironman in May, she wants to do more ab work. She has this completely insane idea that I have nice abs and said she's going to need some tips. Since I don't actually have amazing abs (My stomach is really the part of me I'm most self conscious about. And my nose. But I'm not rich enough to do anything about that.), and I really need to work on my core strength, we decided that, starting May 22, we're going to start an ab/core program. I actually really hate doing ab work. I know what to do and how to do it, but the act of actually doing it? Doesn't appeal to me in the least.
|This would be so much easier.|
So anyhow, look for us in the Best Abs of 2013 magazine.
How many miles do you put on your running shoes before they start feeling like they need to be replaced?
What's your favorite ab or core exercise?
