I have been running in a pair of Asics that are probably about 6 or 7 years old. Since I haven't done much running until recently, they have been used mainly for walking, hiking, biking...etc. I bought a pair of Nike Airs about 4 years ago....when I thought I would start running (lol) BUT...they give me blisters and I won't wear them.
So...I spent a lot of time today trying on and running around the store in various pairs of shoes before I settled on another pair of Asics (GT-2150) I think Asics just fit my feet really well.
Tomorrow I am substituting for a HS English teacher for two class periods in the morning. Then, I am going to the fitness center. I am thinking about jogging/walking on the treadmill for 30 minutes, riding the stationary bike for 30 minutes and then jumping in the pool to swim 8 laps (25m pool)..... The key word is "thinking" I'm kind of making up my training as I go along..... I figure it can't hurt to see how I do endurance wise.
I am also "thinking" about signing up for a 5K on May 2nd. It isn't advertised as a walk/run...so I am a bit worried about finishing WAY last behind every one. I am going to look up last year's race results to see what it looks like.
I also googled and found a Tri club in my town. So I am "thinking" about joining it. I will email the organizer and see if at my current fitness level, I could actually participate in any of their training events...
Sounds like I have a lot of "thinking" to do.... I should probably just DO and not "think" so much!!!
