It's Wednesday...

... but somehow it feels like later in the week. I feel stressed as there is still a bunch of stuff to do for the wedding on Saturday, I need to get birthday presents for my neighbor and the twins, and definitely need a fix for the mess that's my hair. I feel like there is not nearly enough time to get everything done.

On the upside, I received the results from last week's blood tests in the mail. I did not expect it quite yet. I will need to increase my dose of medication by 50%, but I'm sure that it will help me get some much-needed energy back. I've been seriously slacking for much too long.

News from the running front: not so great. I hurt my achilles tendon and had to rest today. I hope to feel better tomorrow and be able to run about 5 or 6 k, we'll see. And: I finally managed to go and get new shoes. I noticed that the gel cushions in my old shoes has worn out and didn't quite do their job any more. So I spent today's lunch break to pick out new ones. I love Asics, and stayed with this brand again. The Nimbus-14 sport gel cushions in the major pressure area, the heel and front foot. I felt the difference to the old shoes after just walking around in the store. The fit is better, the cushions are fantastic, and I'm really mad at my achilles tendon because I want to hit the road with my new shoes!

Scratch no. 21 off this list


  1. Love the new shoes!! Hope you feel better enough to run tomorrow.

    1. Thanks, Jen! I did go running today, about 4 - 5k, but it wasn't the best idea, had to cut the run short because the leg started to give up.
