We’re back from the beach! It was so nice to slow down and relax. Hope you had a great weekend, too!
Running is getting harder these days, but I’m still finding the silver lining where I can.
A ten miler a week ago (32 weeks) was a nice surprise. And we had beautiful, cool mornings at the beach this weekend which made early morning walks and jogs much more pleasant than I expected for June.
Plus, a pair of new shoes last week motivated me to finish this pregnancy strong and begin my postpartum comeback.
What is it about new shoes?
These are the Mizuno Sayonara 2, a great lightweight shoe that still has the support of heavier shoes (10 mm drop). It’s a great racing shoe.
I took it out last week and love the difference that a new shoe makes- I feel like I’m floating along more than usual. Plus, the color combination is fantastic!
These aren’t in stores yet, but are coming soon! You can also check out Mizuno Running for more details on these or their new support shoe, the Wave Paradox.
I’m considering running a 5k next Saturday- is that crazy? I’d love to squeeze in one final race.
I’m at the stage now where every time I head out for a run, I brace myself for someone to question if I should be running pregnant. Thankfully, I’ve only gotten smiles and encouragement, but I know I must look pretty funny these days.
The 5k also has a kid’s dash, so it would be a win-win. Even if I am struggling to hold a ten minute pace.
