Today was my long day to work......worked until 7pm. But it was a good day, can not complain one bit. When I returned home, the day even became better because I had the May 2015 Runner's World Magazine waiting for me in my mailbox!!! Always seems like Christmas when I find the latest edition in the mail!!! Definitely will be checking out the 8 Quick Core Exercises!!!! My core is fairly weak and in need of strengthening!!! And if I can perform QUICK exercises, that is even better! All you working moms out there can relate, right?!?
Today was a rest day..... I literally slept in a bit and went to work..... so, nothing too exciting happened that was related to running.... EXCEPT on the embarrassing side of things.... let me explain! I have this foot issue, pain to the ball of my right foot! my toe even goes intermittently numb. I have self diagnosed myself with a morton neuroma. Anyway, I had been placing these foot pads in my shoes that helped some. Well, yesterday, I picked up these Dr. Scholl's comfort insoles:
So, yeah, today I wore these in my shoes! My feet were in HEAVEN! No pain to the ball of the right foot and no toe numbness!!! I have tried some well known "running" inserts that did not help at all and made things worse. I have been avoiding going to a podiatrist because I know they would recommend custom insoles that will come with a hefty price. Anyway, I am quite please with these Dr. Scholl's insoles! Not sure if I will run in these, most likely will simply wear in my daily shoes that I wear.....
Anyway, on to the Embarrassing situation........ It was getting close to leaving work, things were settled down, and no one (patient wise) in the office; therefore, I decided all of a sudden to try to run in my shoes down the hallway to get a feel of running with insoles. Today was a day that I wear scrubs to work, so I had on running shoes. So, there I went, running down one of the hallways when I passed a desk of another station who I had though had been long gone for the day! NOPE!!! There I went running pass someone sitting at their desk!!!! I instantly stopped, face was beat red, I was trying to explain what I was doing which only made me realize how ridiculous I looked and sounded! Oh well, it isn't the first embarrassing situation for me and I am sure not the last! LOL!
Anyway, speaking of products I love, with this one not really running related.... I can't live without this dry shampoo! It is by Dove and is fantastic!!!! My hair gets oily really quick. I used to require washing my hair on a daily basis! I can actually skip a day and sometimes 2 of washing my hair! Saves a lot of time on those days! I have tried other dry shampoos which worked great, but were extremely costly! This one is affordable AND works great!!! At least for me!!!
Well, I need to get a shower and get to bed.... morning will come quick!!!
Is there something that you receive monthly that makes the day feel like Christmas when it arrives? Magazine? Running box? Let me know, maybe I need to check it out!
Have you been caught doing something embarrassing when you thought the coast was clear and no witnesses? I learned my lesson today, no running at work even if no patient's in building!
Is there a product that you have tried that has helped with a running ailment? Insoles? Body glide? etc........
Is there a Non-running products that you label as super fabulous? please share......
Until later........ Have a great evening!!!!!
