Tomorrow is always another day.

So I decided not to run the half yesterday. I woke up with a headache, and it was pretty cold outside, so I elected to sleep in rather than try to muddle through 13 miles.

I am glad I did because I feel the best I have in over a week today. In a few minutes I am off to volunteer for Team in Training handing out information at a Nike Runner's booth near Chelsea Piers before meeting friends for a very late brunch.

Since my dvd player broke I have been relying on vhs tapes for my workout videos. I have Crunch Fat Burning Pilates and The Ultimate Video Workout by Kathy Smith. I have to say my 1986 Ultimate Video Workout rocks the house. It is really good and really challenging, mostly of endurance. I recommend it if you can find it on ebay and can handle bad 80's workout clothes.

This morning I did Ashley Simpson's workout from this month's issue of Shape. Pretty good, I worked up a sweat! I'll post it later if you want.

In other news, I am totally excited to have a new pair of Asics GT 2010. My old ones were so worn down, running felt like driving on a flat tire. Since I knew my size, I scouted several online sites, Road Runner Sports, Zappos, and then found them for $59 at The Finish Line website. I'm not a huge fan of the pink, but all the shoes I find attractive always turn out to be poor choices for my foot shape and running stride.

Can't wait to take them for a test drive! Paulo Nutini's song, new shoes, is stuck in my head right now. I am such a dork.

Oh, I am also excited to try a striptease workout class on Tuesday. More on why later!

Off to take the dog for a quick walk before heading out for the day. Enjoy your Sunday!

Nice shoes! Do you have any tips on how to tell if a running shoe will work for you?? I try some on, like them, they fit, etc only to find that I'm not running in them as well as I could or they cause me pain- any tips for buying running shoes??

Sounds like you did the right thing - it's always best to listen to your body, and rest it when it needs it most.

Oooh, gorgeous running shoes, for sure - nice!
