I run in Brooks PureFlow now, I LOVE them. There's several different shoes in the Pure line, some are better suited for people than others depending on your needs. I would check those out. I don't think I'll run in anything else.

ASICS makes a minimalistic shoe, I tried that one when I went more minimal because I've always loved ASICS but I preferred the Brooks. You could try that too but I don't remember the name of it...

No running stores on this tiny island ahaha

I ended going with a pair of Asics. I hate the Asics so far.. I hope they break in better.

Been lazy. Very lazy. Haven't been out running in 6 or 8 weeks. Been umpiring, so keeping fit that way.

Jumping back in with both running shoes today, though. There is a charity 5K this evening locally. Going to go out and participate. Not going to kill myself at it, but I plan to finish.

Been switching to the elliptical lately. I really like it. I'm still doing PiYo though so I only go 3 times a week or something... PiYo is making me pretty sore, but I'm really enjoying it.

Still four pounds from my goal. Maybe one day I'll actually reach it.

I survived last night. Not too bad considering I hadn't even laced up my running shoes since May. 28th overall (70 finishers). 25:55 and 7th among my age group.

Good job, Eddie! That's a GREAT time for a 5K!

I ran/survived the Survivor Mud Run last Saturday--5K with 20 mud-ridden obstacles. SO. MUCH. FUN. I am signing up for next month's Warrior Dash and cannot wait to get my viking helmet!

And free beer. Can't forget that part, LOL.

I want to do the Warrior Dash SO BAD. Maybe I will go sneak a look and see how much it is again...

I've got my Color Run next Sunday. I haven't been training well AT ALL. My last run was 12 days ago according to my running app and I did about a mile. Yep, I'm screwed.

I freaking love my yoga mat.

And yoga. All of my body always feels so much better after.

I have two weeks left on PiYo. My body seems stronger and more toned now (I can almost do tricep push ups ). I'm not sure what I'm going to do afterwards. I'm considering Stronglift 5x5 but my gym only has one stack rack (I thought there was none, so there's improvement), so I don't know how that would work out. I'll probably take an appointment with a personal trainer to try and figure it out (it's free every 3 months and I haven't had one in like 6). So either that or another month of PiYo, but once the kids are in school it's going to be much easier (waking up at 6.30am to workout before everyone gets up is getting a bit old).

Yesterday I also ran 5 miles for the first time. Ok it was on the treadmill, but still. Second time I reached 'the zone' and I could have kept on going, I think, just didn't want to overdo it (plus the maximum timer on the treadmill is one hour anyway)... I'm just a bit sore today, not bad at all, had no problem doing my workout this morning. Next step is increasing the incline or the speed (I'm still only going at 5mph), we'll see.

I'm back to my lowest weight of 132.5 this morning, so it took 1.5 month to get rid of my vacation weight gain. Could have been worse. I still really want to reach 129.9, just because. And maintain there.
