Pure Flow's Rock

I was sooo excited for my run today since I bought my new shoes on Saturday and couldn't wait to try them out. I geared myself up and stretched since I'm still sore from yesterday's Jillian Michaels DVD kick butt workout.

I have no clue what I'm looking at (me pretending to run)

I ran the route that I thought was 3.1 miles and it actually turned out to be 3.25 miles in 31:41!! I started my watch when I left the driveway and told myself since this was the first time attempting to run 3 miles straight for the first time since the first week of January so I told myself I would not look at my watch since I did not care about time I just wanted to get through the whole workout without stopping to walk. I also actually got to run 2 larger hills for the first time since during my injury since that was a no-no on my progression runs back.

I really like the Brooks Pure Flow shoes and they felt great. I was nervous since I need wide width shoes and they didn't come in wides. But when I tried them on in the shoe store they fit great and I didn't have any issues with them on the run which is great and I can't wait to do more runs in these. I don't think I will go back!!

I think I may sign up for a 5K next weekend so I can get a new PR since today I'm on pace to beat my PR by about 2 minutes!! Can't believe that in just 1 year I improved that much. I realize this is only my 5th year running but I really can't wait to see how fast I will eventually get. There is still 10 lbs to lose off my frame and muscle to gain. Looking forward to a great 2012 season.


  1. The Pureflows look great on you! I can't wait to get a pair. I have a wide toe box and tried some on- nice fit and feel.

    Hope you do the 5k :) A new PR would be fun.

  2. I have the black and blue Flows but I really think I need those as well. I love mine too!

  3. love seeing improvement! its so shoes are equally exciting :) you should definitely go for the 5k! sounds like you will rock it!!

  4. Woo hoo! Congrats on the run, doesn't it feel great to be back at it?!?!?

    1. It's the best feeling!! Been waiting 2 months to experience it!!


I would love to hear from you!
