Crazy things are going on in my head. Five straight days of headaches, periods of low energy and dizziness… I hate when that happens. I used to get chronic migraines but managed to make them go away with diet changes. Naturally, this is not something I want to start up again. It’s probably stress. When I get like this, I get VERY cranky and the smallest things irritate me. So, when I woke up with a headache yesterday, I was bummed but refused to let it ruin my day off. I just bought new sneakers on Sunday. I would be so disappointed in myself for not taking them for a spin around the park. Then the negative voices in my head would start and it would be a vicious cycle to pull out of. So, I pulled up my big girl panties, popped some aspirin and took off for the park.
I am so glad I pushed myself out the door. My headache went away and I felt great!
I love my new Saucony Ride7’s! First off, being in new sneakers made me feel SO tall with all that new cushioning. They are very comfortable. I had no issues except my toes going numb but that happens to me in new shoes regardless. Another run or two and that will go away. It was like I was bouncing down the trail. I look forward to many more runs in them.
I also wore my Marine Corp Red Swirlgear tank. This is a great tank! It’s long, does not ride up and has a handy dandy zipper pocket on the side for my key or if I forget to take my rings off. It keeps you dry when you work up a sweat too. I get plenty of compliments from friends on how cute this top is. Do you want to get your hands on some Swirlgear?

Now if I can find running shorts that I love as much as my Addidas shorts and my running tops. I bet regulars at the park wonder if I own anything else. In fact I do but none of them are as comfortable. They need to be quiet ( no swishing) and be long enough that I don’t feel like I am exposing anything when I stretch. Suggested brands are welcome.
After my run, I met up with my sister, niece and their children at the playground for a picnic and play time.
My shoulders and other muscles are getting sore now from pushing but it was SO much fun! I have not played like that in YEARS!
I tried to get a selfie with all of us in it but I couldn’t do it. My arms just aren’t long enough. But I managed to get everyone else.
Afterwards, my big sis (left in the picture) treated us all to Dairy Queen! LOL
In all it was a great day. It’s too bad I can’t do this every week! I would have missed out on all the fun if I wussed out. And with all the pushing and climbing, it was a fun workout too.
How do you get yourself moving if you don’t really feel like it?
