Horrible Run and New Shoes

This morning's run was hard. The goal was 5 easy paced miles.  For some reason, I felt like I was running through cement. My breathing never got into it's easy rhythm.  It was hot and I just wanted to stop, so I did. I stopped and walked a bit, then took a bathroom break. During my last mile I stopped and changed what I was listening to on my phone. And you know what? I survived my run. I made all 5 miles. I got home and jumped onto my pool. It felt so good. I then did my kettlebell workout;  3x5 goblet squats, clean & presses, 1 arm rows, 20 swings,  and 45 sec planks. It felt good.

And now for my shoe p*rn!

I got a new pair of Asics Gel-Nimbus. I love the melon color. I can't wait to run in them tomorrow.  I also got a new pair of Superfeet.  I also know when my inserts need to be replaced,  my Achilles starts hurting. But now I have new shoes and new inserts.
