New shoes but no run

by - Wednesday, April 16, 2008

So I bought some new fly kicks last night (pics to come shortly). But I didn't get to use them this morning because it's taper time. And although today called for a speed workout, I have soccer tonight.

Normally I just do my run and then play soccer, but in taper mode, I think it's best to just stick to one all out workout per day. So just soccer tonight.

Taper mode is actually been treating me OK. Usually I'm antsy to workout more, but Tuesday I was super exhausted and didn't mind a day to sleep in and today I was okay with just playing soccer.

It's going to start getting annoying real soon though I'm sure.

  1. I can second that! Soccer counts as a speed work!!! Try to keep it under 5 miles ok? :-)

  2. WOOHOO for new kicks!! Can't wait to see them!

  3. I've actually been enjoying my taper...trying new things (more swimming, Zumba). Otherwise, I think I'd go nuts.

  4. Where's the picture of the new kicks?

  5. Cool.. cant wait to see what you got!

  6. Taper time is the best, isn't it? You're going to feel like a champ soon. Good luck in your race.

    At least you have soccer to keep you busy while tapering. I'm sure that will help. Enjoy the downtime - it'll be over before you know it. :)

  8. Yeah! I want to see some new kicks!

  9. Like Paolo says:
    Hey, I put some new shoes on,
    And suddenly everything is right,
    I said, hey, I put some new shoes on and everybody's smiling,
    It so inviting,
    Oh, short on money,
    But long on time,
    Slowly strolling in the sweet sunshine,
    And I'm running late,
    And I dont need an excuse,
    'cause I'm wearing my brand new shoes.
    Take Care
