I have a few things to talk about today, which is why my post is so late, hehe. First off.
The original plan for today was to run, and to run in these:
Well, you know the saying, "The road to hell was paved with good intentions"? Yeah. That applied to me today.
I love these shoes, usually. I mean, LOVE. Today, however was a different story. I put them on an immediately it didn't feel right. My calves were already sore (I think they were just tight from all the boots-on-gravel walking) and I don't know how these shoes affect everyone, but they always seem to work my calves the most. But I said, Oh well. and went about my business. Completed my ab workout, (I seriously love this ab set pretty hardcore) then did my weights, and went to the treadmill fully prepared to run. Pssssh. I didn't make it 1/4 of a mile before I pushed the STOP button. It hurt. Not in a good, this is awesome, way hurt.
So I moved to the elliptical and decided I'd run tomorrow in my nice cushioned calves lovin' tennis shoes. But about 10 minutes into that, my feet starting hurting. I was seriously annoyed by this time. I mean, I've worn these darn shoes multiple times, so it's not like I was completely new to them. Although I hadn't worn them in quite a while because my base looks like this:
I'm sorry. But walking on those rocks hurts.
So I finished my workout, stretched and started walking home. On that. It's like a 3/4 mile walk. I just made that number up, but it is my guess. :) Luckily, a really nice officer drove by in a Gator and offered me a ride. Um, yes please. Don't worry. In the States I only get in windowless vans with strangers. I have standards.
But, alas, it didn't stop me from developing a very irritating bruise right on the bottom of my heel. So now I'm limping. I'm praying it goes away while I sleep the day away so I can run tonight. Wish me luck.
Now onto more important things. Like cookies.
Yeah, I got this in the mail today.
Let's just say the candy fast ended tonight... And I'm not sorry.
Basically, one of my girlfriends sent me a rocking Valentine's Day package. It had:
+FOUR different kinds of Girl Scout cookies (Thin Mints, Shortbread, Thanks-A-Lots, and Somoans)
+Bag of Sweathearts Conversation Hearts (yum...)
+Little complilation of Ferrerra Rocher truffles
+magazines (Runner's World, Cosmo, Women's Health, Mad Libs, etc.)
+Victorias Secret lotion and Bath and Body Works Hand Sanitizer
+Super sweet Card
So, I wasn't going to insult her by not eating the entire bag of candy. That would be rude, guys. Hehe. I did have some help from my co-workers, and the no candy is back on tomorrow. (I obviously am an all-or-nothing kinda girl...) But seriously, it was wonderful. Wonderful.
I was gonna post my eats, but other than candy and girl scout cookies.... it was pretty healthy. Lol. So I don't feel very guilty, and this post is long enough. So I leave you guys with this:
I wasn't kidding when I said I live in a shipping container...
Because I know you guys like to see my sweaty hair and go to sleep now bags...
Have a wonderful day y'all. :)
