I have recently taken up running and my mom told me I had to get new shoes. She took me to a running store and I was fitted for a pair of running shoes! Very exciting stuff. I tried on about five different pairs. I thought that getting fit for shoes would be an awkward experience, but I had a really nice man who told me what my feet were doing when I was running. I ended up with shoes that gave my ankles more support because I have pronation. This means that my ankle rolls inward when I put my feet down. These are by the brand Asic.
I took these bad boys for a spin today and ran 30 minutes straight (just over 2.6 miles). I'm really proud of myself because I never thought I would be a runner, but here I am just running away! I increased my pace throughout my run from a 5.2 to a 5.5. I ended the last 10 minutes at a 5.5 pace. I'm pleasantly surprised with myself! The shoes made my run a lot more comfortable. I cannot wait to keep running with them.
I've recently begun listening to country music (UH WHO AM I? RUNNING AND COUNTRY MUSIC I DON'T EVEN KNOW) and I wanted to share a few country songs I really enjoy running to!
I Want Crazy by Hunter Hayes keeps me at a good speed and I love the catchy lyrics.
Flat On the Floor by Carrie Underwood is such a good song to workout to. Fast paced and powerful.
Best I Ever had by Gavin Degraw is a quick beat and keeps my feet moving.
I know this doesn't really count as country, but I still love this song.
Hope you guys have had a great weekend! I'm off to go meet a friend for coffee.
Loads of love!
