Today Amy and I finally made it down to the outlet mall and the Nike Outlet store.
I've been wanting to add to my cold weather gear and we both just really like looking/buying running gear.
We walked in the door and went directly to the shoe section where Amy squealed like a little girl at the sight of track spikes that were only $29.99! (but were really only $23.00)
If you didn't guess, she bought them.
I wanted some too but having completely average sized feet mean that there are never any shoes on sale in my size.
Instead I bought an awesome green with black accents shirt that Amy wanted but decided against buying because we have so many pieces of running clothing that are identical.
It gets a little awkward at times.
Afterward we went to South Sound Running to register for the White Elephant 5 miler this weekend (Yay! for $5 races!)
It was there I found my very own pair of RACING FLATS!
Oh, sure Amy raved about hers months ago and I had felt the weight difference between our regular shoes and the racing shoes, but really how much of a difference can they make?
I LOVE MY SHOES!
I almost didn't wear them tonight because it's raining but Jason pointed out that we live in WA and it always rains.
I did great on my 10 X 400 meter repeats with only a measly 1:30 RI. Just enough to make you want more...
My goal pace was 6:22
1. 6:05, 6:04, 6:20, 6:13, 6:22, 6:21, 6:14, 6:21, 6:22, 6:28,
Not too shabby after taking a couple of weeks off AND starting our training on week #6 of the training plan. (that way we'll peak at our next race)
