Can we start a countdown? Only 5 MORE DAYS left of Cardiology and then it’s onto ophthalmology FOREVER!!! Crazy! How many cups of coffee do you think I will go through in the next 5 days?
And now on to today’s post
I know I’m not a fitness fanatic and I don’t workout all the time like so many other amazing health bloggers out there. But, I really enjoy working out and trying all different kinds of fitness. Running has been my go-to for a long time, mainly because it’s easy to do whenever and it makes me feel great even if I run slow and for short distances.
Whenever I try to increase my mileage and run longer however, my knees tend to start hurting. I just don’t have a great body for running long distances. Since my knees are so prone to hurting, I have been super careful about only running in good running shoes. When I was in Indianapolis, I went to a running store and had my run analyzed. Basically you just run on a treadmill and they video tape your stride, and then tell you which shoes are a good fit for you.
That’s when I started using Brooks Glycerin running shoes. They are seriously the best ever and I’ve never found another pair of running shoes that I like more.
My old ones have seen a lot of miles and were basically falling apart. There was literally NO tread left on the bottom.
So, I just got a new pair!
My old ones were the Glycerin 11, and these are now the 12’s, and I love them even more!
The purple (my favorite color) is soooo pretty!
Since it’s almost summertime, I started thinking about getting a bike again. Remember how last year I really wanted a bicycle but I didn’t want to spend so much money? I ended up not getting one, and just borrowing friend’s bikes a few times to ride with Kyle.
But this summer, I want a bike. So, Kyle has been on the lookout for good sales and he found one I thought I would like!
After work last week we rushed to the sports store (all the small sized bikes sell out so fast!) and I got the last one!!!!!
It’s a hybrid, so the tires are pretty thin like a road bike, but not so so much, so you can still go off-road a little if you want.
I LOVE it!!!
Kyle ordered a helmet, water-bottle holder, and water bottle on Amazon so as soon as those arrive, I will be a biking fool. Can’t wait to ride this around all summer YAY!!
Do you have a bike? What kind?
Are you loyal to a certain brand of running shoes?
