- I was sick for almost two weeks and couldn't run then
- It rained in Humboldt for a week straight and I wouldn't run in the rain
- Bryan's folks came to Humboldt and we were out of the house all day
On my last C25K run, I ran for 27 minutes, albeit slowly. I hope to be back in that condition next week with the lower elevation in Chicago. I know I'll have to get used to even HIGHER elevation in Jackson.
Here's the elevation differences:
Eureka, California: 44 feet
Pocatello, Idaho: 4,464 feet
Mt. Prospect, Illinois: 669 feet
Jackson, Wyoming: 6,237 feet
So. Yeah. That's a lot of elevation changes. My poor lungs are beat!!
I do promise to get back to C25K and finish the program. I'll kick allll sorts of butt, promise.
Oh! I also got new running shoes. I couldn't find the Nike Free 5.0s anywhere, but I got these very cool Nike Dual Fusion shoes in a very pretty shade of blue. They're very comfortable. I got them in a size 6.5 but I'm returning them for a size 7. I recommend them, they're very light, not too big of a sole, very comfy.
My friend Kendra works at the Sports Authority and she had a Friends and Family coupon, so I got them 25% off! Sweet!
