Today was a BEAUTIFUL day outside, so of course I spent most of it in the car driving around like a mad woman. I headed out to Target to purchase a multi-vitamin and a short sleeve running top (since it is FINALLY starting to get warmer). While wandering the store, I found 2 duo-dry running tees- one on clearance and one regular price- and I also stumbled across a pair of running shorts on Clearance for $3. Ummm, yes, please! Score! After I snagged those treasures, I headed over to the pharmacy section. The way our Target is set up, one has to meander past the food to get to the pharmacy. I happened to spot some large bags of trail mix on sale- double score! So, I snatched those up as well and FINALLY grabbed my multi-vitamins. I opted for the Women's multi-vitamin, for really no specific reason other than I'm a woman.
All in all, it was a rather productive shopping day for me. When I got home I pre-sorted my trail mix into individual serving size bags (easy to grab on the go and I don't have to guess-timate what I'm eating). I'm actually rather excited about this. It's really the first time I've ever been productive with a healthy snack. Normally I just grab a bag of baby carrots and the whole container of hummus and go. Hooray for being a little bit healthier.
I ended up having a free night to myself (once again- I submit a "Finally") and I took full advantage of it. I did some toning and strength exercises in my room with my free weights and bands. I also got to work on my collage (you remember, the one I have been saying I was going to so since I started this blog? Yep, that's the one).
I've been doing some research on multiple things: mostly new running routes and running shoes. I'm looking to get a new pair within the next few months so I can start breaking them in for the half-marathon. As for running shoes, I really like these HERE. Anyone ever wear them? I have Saucony Jazz Low-Pro's right now and I love them to death. So I'm debating getting another pair of the same shoe, in a different color, or those other Sauconys. Decisions, decisions.
Tomorrow's long run has to be pushed to Sunday as I am going to be working about 13 hours between 2 of my jobs. Yay! I'm just hoping I won't be too beat to do 70 minutes on Sunday. Oy vey.
Edit: I also just signed up for Runner's World magazine. And by "just" I mean, about 1 minute ago I clicked Order. haha. I'm super excited!
