Yesterday afternoon I ran by the Road Runner store to get some Moleskin padding for the enormous blister on my arch. Shocking, they don’t carry it anymore. They’ve just been “crazy busy” so they never ordered it, and apparently aren’t planning on ordering anymore any time soon… or ever.
So I’m still walking around with a bi*** of a blister on my foot.
When I went to the gym in the morning before work yesterday, I had to put my old insoles back into my shoes because the pressure from the orthies (ollllllld lady—say it in the Phoebe voice) was just too much to handle even walking. I did 40 minutes on the elliptical and 15 minutes on the bike and my back didn’t bother me at all. It’s so weird how I only get that little pain when I run, but not when I do other cardio exercises.

I’m still debating whether or not I should run (or not) this weekend at the half marathon. I’m in a bad place mentally right now and don’t know if I want to run even though it will be crappy and potentially terrible. I feel like if I’m not giving it my all (or if my blister doesn’t go away), then why should I do it? Wouldn’t I rather not be pissed I’m doing something and hating it?
I don’t know. Maybe I need a break from running or something to get my mind back on track… although it’s been so nice outside lately that I crave that good run in the afternoons.
In other news, the fave and I have decided to go to New York City over my spring break for a couple of days and while we are there we are seeing somebody called Tosh.O. I have no idea who that is or what he does. Comedy I think? When I googled him his blog came up from Comedy Central. I’m smart, kids.
Does anyone know who Tosh.O is and should I start watching his show so I’m not the biggest loser in the place?
Do you call him Tosh – O? Like I’m Kathleen B?
Or Tosh-dot-O? This way seems more ridiculous, but probably more likely.
Anyway, I’m excited to see the above pictured d-bag… If it’s a comedy show it means the beers’ll be a-flowin…. and I can be happy if I’ve got a cold beer in my hands.
While we’re in NYC we’ll be staying in Hoboken with friends, so I hope they’re planning on taking us cool places, because the last time we were in New York we hit up the Filene’s Basement and DSW… Um, hello lame.
Speaking of lame it’s March 14. 3.14. Hope you’re celebrating by doing something nerdy!
Do you have any spring trips coming up?
Do you know Tosh.O?
