Definitely Feeling Better!

Last night I went out for 5 miles, and felt so much better than Saturday, TG! My time was 47:58, my plan was to do mile 1 & 2 "quicker", mile 3 slower, then 4 & 5 quicker again. It went pretty good, I liked knowing that I was going to get a chance to recover. I also tried out my new water belt, I really liked it! For those of you that have asked, there have been NO Trail Hottie sightings, I'm starting to think that he was a mirage!!!

I don't remember if I included this info in my post from Saturday, but I also have new insoles that I'm trying to get used to, so I'm sure that was part of the problem. The new insoles were reccomended by the Ortho Surgeon that I saw on Friday for my on-going foot problem. Since I had that bone removed 4 years ago, the nerve on the side of my foot has "shifted" out more and has become really inflamed. It's also in the same spot as the infamous blister! So, the insoles are supposed to slightly change the way my foot hits, thus keeping it from rubbing in the same spot. It seems to be working, but they aren't as "cushy" as before, but we'll see how they work out. I would love to be able to switch them out at some point....
Today I am on sight for a photo shoot for work, I might try to post some pictures from it later! We are shooting the cover for our catalog and a special ad that was my idea, very exciting!!

Oooohhh is that belt is good? I've been hemming and hawing FOREVER, deciding if I want a Nathan one or a regular Fuel Belt. Sweet! I guess now I know ;-)

Mirage of hottie? Heck no - he will be back. There is a beach running hottie that I used to see, but he only runs in the afternoon. I am a morning runner. This has made it impossible for us to fall in love, get married, have babies and retire. But I'm working on it.

Question about the belt: does it bounce at all? How much water do the bottles hold?

M*J*C said...

Hi Vickie-
This belt didn't bounce at all for me, I think it's because the belt itself is wide and stretchy, and it fastens with velcro. I was able to get it placed on a good spot on my hips and it totally stayed. I think the bottles hold 12 oz each? Not sure though...

I really like your fuel belt. I am in need of a new one. Nice job on the run.
