See what I did with that title. Aren’t I clever? Hey…it’s Monday. Give me a break.
Since running the 4 miler in the wrong shoes didn’t seem to convince me that running outside is MUCH DIFFERENT than running inside on a treadmill, I thought I’d test the theory again this weekend. I haven’t been running outside much due to the weather and the fact that I get home after dark and there are no sidewalks in my neighborhood. The dogs and I only venture out on the weekends when the weather cooperates. Fortunately using my C25K app means that at least one day of the weekend is dedicated to running.
Week 3 day one should not be run outside when the rest of your program has been run on the treadmill.
So now I have two, separate c25K apps. One that I will use when running outside (that will obviously progress at a slower rate), and my current app that I will continue to use on the treadmill.

I should cross-stich shit that on a pillow.
I watched my co-worker cross the finish line of the Disney Princess Half Marathon (via live feed) on Sunday. Her partner dropped out so by the time I started texting her she was alone but still had a mile and a half to go. I coached her via text until she crossed the line.
“Stop texting and RUN!” How in the hell does anyone run and text. I can’t even run and breathe much less text!
I was SO EXCITED for her. She finished and she wasn’t swept by the balloon ladies so she’s a very happy runner today. Now she gets to enjoy a week of vacation in Disney World. I’m officially jealous.
Happy Monday everyone (that’s is truly the queen of oxymoron’s).
