This week, I have been on vacation. I’ve been overly busy – but in good ways.
On Sunday I went out to Sacramento to visit my best friend who is visiting from Hawaii. We spent the day at the pool, and our night drinking a little too much alcohol and playing card games and dominos. We laughed so much it was completely ridiculous! But it was also the best thing ever.
After sleeping late on Monday and having breakfast, I headed back to the Bay because the 108℉ temps in Sacramento were just a little too much for me to handle.
Yesterday I spent the day at the beach with the Guy that I have dating. I had a wonderful time!
Today I had an appointment I had to go to, but afterwards I hit the gym. I received my Running Warehouse order the night before, and I couldn’t wait to test out my new Brooks Transcends.
From the moment I put them on, once again I could feel the difference in these shoes. They have a glove like fight, and it feels like your standing on a cloud. My hip is still relatively sore, so I knew if they didn’t work, the pain would increase very quickly.
Slightly over 3 miles later, I was pleasantly surprised while wearing these heavenly shoes. I actually had no hip pain during my run. Afterwards, I was able to step off the treadmill without pain. The pain that I did have after was the same pain I had before the run, with the exception that it felt less tight. It’s been a few hours and I have since lifted weights, and did other exercises as well as thoroughly cleaned my house. I still feel Okay. I’m going to have to take these shoes for an outdoor run this week, but my initial impression is: I really love these shoes and they are extremely comfortable.
Of course I am not miraculously better, but a more comfortable run is always awesome, and I literally Ran Happy today.
