I did have this post loaded up with photos, though, all set to show you my latest running gear and tell you a bit about what's up with my fitness program. And given the stress of the last week, the tensions of waiting out a protracted labour and childbirth, some talk about running seems very appropriate. There were a number of points when the anxious waiting got to be too much, and rather than send another text which my poor son-in-love was too busy to answer, I laced up my shoes and headed out the door.
The shoes I laced up for these photos are from the Pearl Izumi Project Emotion collection; they're a trail-running shoe that work well on the dirt roads of our little island. In the city, where I'm running on pavement, I wear a pair of Mizunos. Switching up the shoes like this seems to work well; the approach got me to, and through, the marathon in May.Both pairs were ready to be replaced after the many, many kilometres of training that led to those final 42.1, and when I was getting fitted from these ProjectEM trail runners, I couldn't resist this new running tank.
Nana and Granddad are off to the island now. What are you up to this Sunday in August?
