Small Break

I haven't been running lately. I sort of lost my motivation to get up so early, but more importantly, the bottom of my left heel hurts pretty badly. I think it is wise to give it a break.

I'm not quitting, however, because I have to be ready for the Susan G. Komen race in October. Just slowing down for a bit.

Save Mart

Distance: 2.28 miles
Time: 33 min.
Avg. Pace: 14:29/mi.

Still plugging along. Not much to say about my run this morning other than I did it. I was hot and sweaty when I got back. I was also tired. Luckily, I curled up on the couch and watched tv because I didn't have to rush anywhere this morning.

Why is it that I can never get a normal looking photo of myself? Other people do it. I end up looking like a freak. I look like I'm peeking into the photo here.

On a totally unrelated side note, I am switching grocery stores, and I have been having major anxiety over this. You would think it's no big deal, but it is!

I have been a Von's customer for years, but I am switching to Save Mart because I am tired of Vons' customer service, prices seem comparable at Save Mart, and I can swipe the SHARES card and get money off of Evan's tuition.

I had the best experience at Save Mart this morning. I made a mistake in a promotion I was taking advantage of yesterday, so I went today to get it fixed. Not only did the manager fix the problem, but I got another $10 coupon for my trouble...and the trouble was basically my fault! I was so happy!

It makes me laugh at myself because I am treating this grocery store switch like it is this HUGE deal. It's just groceries. I shouldn't be so weird about it. However, the great customer service this morning helped a bunch!

Long Walk

Distance: 5.77 miles
Time: 1:43:27

I did my normal Week 6 Day 1 run, and then set out to walk to get to at least 5.5 miles. I'll explain later why I want to go that far.
