I Couldnt Help Myself

Why yes! I own yet another pair of vibram five fingers. This time I went with the Bikila LS. Getting them on my feet was a bit of a workout, but I got it together rather quickly.

Tomorrow I will put them through the paces during my 4 mile group run. Then if all goes well, I will wear them during my 10k run on Sunday. Either way, I’ll keep you posted.

Hump Day Rambles

I took a “real” zumba class Monday night. It was the TRUTH!

Said zumba class gave me a tude, because the instructor only teaches Mon/Wed at 7:30 pm. Sigh, its going to be difficult, at best for me to make it to this class regularly.

For, the past few days Ive been tracking my food. What a flipping eye opener.

My new vibrams came in today. I went with the kso’s, in match everything black. They fit like a glove!

Citysports is having a sale. I hear some Bikila’s calling my name! Im trying hard not to answer.

On Sunday, I wore the first pair of vibrams Ive ever bought running. These were the Bikila’s that I caught for $60. You see, I didnt want to spend alot on something I wasnt sure I would love.

I loved them! Dare I say, I enjoy running in the Bikila’s more then the Kso’s? I dont dare! Not yet! Im still on the fence.

I dont like having to wait to Wed to run, after my long run on Sunday. I know my legs could use the rest, but my brain is not cooperating come Wed, when Im scheduled to run.

Next week, Im fixing the schedule. Whatever works, and Im gong to make it work.

Friday, is the 1st annual run to work day. Cool idea, but I can’t. Instead, I will replace my bus ride to the train, with my legs. I will get in the run I missed today, on Friday. Weather permitting.

Please, weather, be permitting.

That is all.

Gear Im Needing Right About Now

20120213-002831.jpg

Compression socks to hold it all in, and to boost muscle recovery. The skirts because they are so dang on cute, and really, why not?

Motoactv – Im ready to take my training to the next level. Right along with my music. Personal trainer, mp3 player, and gps all in 1 unit? Sounds pretty damn sweet to me.

Fuel belt – there is going to come a time when I will need to carry hydration on me. Especially in the summer, and for longer runs. This belt here will give me options. I would use 2 with plain water. 1 with water mixed with electrolytes, and the last water mixed with honey and molasses for an energy boost.

Vibram Komodosports – Im finding that I need to replace my running shoes every 3 months. I love my vibrams, and I love running in them too. These are the next model that Im wanting to put to the test.

How bout you? Any cool gear on your radar?
