Update on the WeightWatchers Walk-!T / Run IT Challenge

This last week has been busy! I spent most of my free time planning for our Easter Egg Hunt that was supposed to be Saturday, but is now Sunday at 5 pm. We are excited that it is now Sunday, and pray that it will be a great outreach event!

I also spent the rest of my free time, running / walking. Tuesday, I joined Shapes by Jodi. and ran / walked Monday and Tuesday. I really liked Shapes by Jodi (it is open 24/7 with your card), and it is affordable because they do not have childcare (I can sneak off before dinner and run), and I can cancel membership anytime. Tuesday night, I had to go to a Preschool Committee meeting so I did not have a lot of time and somehow ran seven straight minutes! Wednesday morning, my friend and I ran 2 minutes / walked 3 minutes and it was not too bad. BUT, Friday morning we ran 3 minutes, walked 2 minutes for 3 times, and I thought I was going to die. I could not really breath at all.

The first week of running/walking was really hard on my shins. I have major feet issues. I have very flat feet and when I walk my feet go in (actually had braces on my feet when I was little). So, unfortunately, I have to spend a good bit of money on my tennis shoes and insoles. I love Brooks tennis shoes and got some last summer. But, I have not worked out since last August, so I am not ready to get new shoes just yet, but will probably be ordering some new Superfeet Insoles. They are incredible, and I would highly recommend them if you have feet problems at all. If you find out how I can order them cheaper than retail price (I get the hot pink color), please let me know soon!
