Tuesday: Kicks

IMG_0325Tuesday morning, I decided to test out whether or not swimming is worth the extra effort of getting wet.  I did manage to slowly swim 40 lengths of the pool in about 30 minutes. It was ok.  It would have been better if the hot tub had been working!

Swim: 40 lengths / 1,000 yards / .56 miles

Then, Christmas came early!  My DH bought me my new kicks.  Turns out I am NOT a neutral shoe and need some stability.  I fully expect my IT Band problems to all magically disappear.  I will be holding my breath.   And I have a super-high arch.

My choices were between the Asics Kayano 19 and the Brooks Ravenna.  To be honest, I couldn’t really feel much of a difference between the two but saw a HUGE difference in the price.  About $70 difference.  So for that, it went to the Brooks.  I can wear them and run in them for 90 days and still bring them back.

And they are pretty.  I swear, that wasn’t a factor in the decision.

Briefly:  Breakfast was coffee and a protein bar.  Then I had two waffles with PB and a handful of Pringles for lunch.  An orange.  And dinner was Chicken and Wild Rice soup from Paradise Bakery.  And a trail mix bar.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.

  1. Keep me posted on the Brooks. I’ve worn the Asics Kayano for about 3 years now and love them. I too need stability and these have been like running on clouds.

    Hope your new kicks keeps your tootsies happy!
