In my goals at the beginning of the year, I resolved to go to the gym twice a week at minimum. Up until the term hit the fan, I was actually doing pretty well! So well, in fact, that I noticed that I need to go buy some new jeans. Mine are too big! It was a pleasant ego boost, but reminded me that I really need to keep up my activity. During the summer while I haven't got a pass at the school gym, my only real activity is running. I love running, but have always had problems with finding shoes that work for more than a month. So, I got myself some new and shiny Five Fingers! I've been starting super slow, but running around the block is a nice study break. I'm loving the feel of these. I feel so much more in control of my movement, it's really neat!
An added bonus is that they look hilarious. I passed a couple of high school kids while out a little earlier and blew by them to a chorus of "What is she wearing?!" I was super amused. Have any of you tried them? Or want to?
I hope you all have a good weekend! I'll be spending it at work and in the library. I'm determined to have one of my papers finished by Monday. Which would be 5 days early. How awesome would that be?
