Running My Shoes Off

So my wonderful blue and yellow Under Armour shoes that I purchased last May finally died. I probably put about 5,000 miles on them. They were very lightweight and comfortable. And never hurt my foot even once. And now they do. That is how I could tell they were on their way out. Now I can only wear them as casual shoes.

So, with that being said, I purchased a new pair of Under Armour running/walking shoes. They are grey camo and silver with orange treads on the bottom. With good traction (the last pair had 0 traction so I slipped a lot in the rain). I had heal pain from the old shoes the last time I used them (walked 7 miles around downtown) and these new ones don’t give me any pain. I only feel the heel pain when I take them off and walk around the house in socks.

This summer I plan to run and walk my little shoes off. Not literally, but I signed up for several running and fitness apps that sync with my Fitbit (and soon, my Garmin, if my mate gets a TomTom). My mate signed up, as well as her mother, so we’re all in competition to see who ends up being the healthiest overall come August 1. Meaning, who has the most steps, lost the most weight, walked the most miles, anything.

I’ve made a new habit of walking up steep hills by my residence. I live at the bottom of the hill that the capitol is on, (aptly named Capitol Hill) and I remember last year nearly passing out while climbing up the hills to get to it). Cardiovascular health has become important to me since I became a slug for a while.

So wish me luck. Wish all 3 of us luck! I really hope to lose 28 lbs by Aug 1, and not get winded after running a quarter of a mile. I’d like to be healthy when it comes to fitness. That is the ultimate goal.new-shoes
