A case of Monday blues on Tuesday

My three-day weekend was awesome. I did what I usually do on the regular weekend days and on Labor Day, I went shopping. I bought a new pair of running shoes and I was super stoked last night.  Because I was so excited last night, I wasn't able to go to sleep. So, I stayed up late watching a documentary on Ronald Reagan.

Back to the shoe. I think I like it. I guess, I need to run a little more on it first before I decide if I really really like it. It is a pair of Brooks Adrenaline. It has some pink on the side. It feels comfy and I bought the size 9.5! Holy smokes, right? The Asics I have been wearing was a 8.5. Anyway, size doesn't matter. What matters is my feet will be happy when I wear those new babies.

This morning, I left for the Y at about 6:30 a.m. It didn't leave me quite enough time to run 3 miles. So, I ran 1.5 mile and headed home. I felt kinda silly that I drove all the way (a little over 5 minutes) to run this silly 1.5 mile. But nonetheless, I got a teeny tiny bit of miles in. I will make it up on one of my runs this week. Ran that 1.5 mile in 16:51 minutes.

Just right before work, I spawned a Green Monster in my kitchen. It turned out to be a little on the brown side cos' I added strawberries to it. Eh. It was still tasty.
Bananas, spinach, strawberries, ice and some skim milk

Love my "C" for Christina cup. Twas a Christmas present with $ inside!
Yours truly. Got the hair up in a bun because I didn't have time to do anything with it.
Ready to hop in my vehicle and go to work!

So, I feel cheated out of my cool fall weather. We have had a few nice crisp, cool mornings. The kinda of weather that makes you happy just being out in the open. But we have been having some hot, humid days now. So not doing good for the running morale. :( Fall weather, you need to hurry your bottom up to Arkansas!

So, the goal for this week is to get to bed early so I won't have to be so rushed for time in the mornings. Gonna get ONE yoga session in this week too. Long run is 10 miles this week. We'll see how these go.


  1. I love new shoes!!! I notice that the sizes between manufacturers varies wildly. The nike's I wore were 9.5. The saucony's I currently wear are 9. And most normal shoes I wear 8.5

  2. cool shoes. hopefully they work out for u!!!!!

  3. Just getting caught up!

    Love the new shoes - they are too cute! Haven't tried Brooks yet, but they seem to be the ones to have! Hope you enjoy!

    Nice job on the miles - pretty soon fall will be here and we can all enjoy them outside ;)

  4. Cute shoes! And good luck with your 10 miles this weekend. You can do it!!!

  5. May the spirit of Ronald Reagan be with you!
