Teacher training is DONE! Thank you for the congratulations and good wishes. I am kind of in disbelief right now that it’s over. It’s all still sinking in and I’m not quite ready to write my final thoughts on teacher training post. I promise it will come this week. I just want to have time to really reflect on the experience and to spend time writing a meaningful recap.
In the meantime, I do have some exciting news to share with you! I WILL BE TEACHING AT Y2 YOGA!
Starting this week! I have been given two classes and I couldn’t be more thrilled or feel more honored. I will definitely be sharing my experiences with teaching, especially these first few weeks.
Switching gears…let’s talk about running!
More specifically, the importance of replacing your shoes regularly. I am a little ashamed to admit that my last new pair of shoes was back in September! 😳
I am totally devoted to Brooks Adrenaline. I have been running in this shoe for over five years and have gone through countless pairs. For some reason (probably because I haven’t been actively training for anything the last few months) I have put off getting new shoes even though I really needed them. I finally sucked it up and made the purchase last week and I can’t believe I waited so long!
I took them out for a spin this afternoon and it felt like running with cushy clouds on my feet.
Here are a few general guidelines for replacing your running shoes…
- The general rule of thumb is to replace your running shoes every 300-400 miles.
- Visual signs of wear out are broken down tread and shoes that bend really easily through the forefoot (a sign they have lost support and structure).
- You can get more mileage out of your shoes if you only wear them for running and not for day to day activities (I’m not good about this – I wear mine to teach my classes at the Y).
- Achy knees and shin splints are good indicators that it might be time to replace your shoes.
When in doubt, buy new shoes! And a quick reminder – always get fitted for shoes at a specialty running store if you are just getting started with running!
How often do you replace your running shoes? Are you loyal to one brand/model?
*One last fun running tidbit…PBR was listed today as one of the “Blogs we love that get you in the running mood” on Fitness magazine’s “The Fit Stop” blog!*
Finally, here are some of today’s eats.
Lunch was a veggie burger salad. Baby spinach, blue cheese, artichokes, sundried tomatoes, dried cranberries and a TJs veggie burger with a lemon/dijon/honey vinaigrette.
Dinner was buffalo shrimp tacos with blue cheese cole slaw. Brandon gets total credit for the idea to have this for dinner. It was super tasty! Refried beans on the side.
Now I’m having a scoop of butter pecan. 😉
Hope your week is off to a good start!
