Half a Pot of Coffee, a Bum Knee, and Bad Shoes

BAD SHOES?!  For shame, I know.  However... Week 1, Day 1 of Couch 2 5K is complete!  It didn't kill me, but it was a nice reminder that I have a bad knee from an old dance injury. 

The shoes are not helping.  They are super old, but cute.  Unfortunately, this is the one time that cute doesn't cut it.  Anyone have any suggestions for good running shoes?  Hey, shoes are shoes, and I'll take any excuse to buy new ones.

The weekend is off to a great start for me!  Hope the same is true for you!


  1. Yay for you on week 1, day 1. You can only keep going from here. It gets easier and easier each time.

    Also, shoes...I cannot recommend Nike enough. I have tried them all...Nike seems to be the best. Others night not'll find them through trial and error.

    Happy weekend!

  2. I'm in kind of the same spot - I really need a new pair of sneakers, but I'm running on some old New Ballance's.

  3. Congrats on your first day! Are you preparing to run in a particular 5k? If not, I know of a super-duper special one in April?!

    I only run in Saucony's. For years, now. It's like running on clouds. Big, fluffy, pink ones.

  4. Congrats on completing day 1! I love that program, it's great! Keep up the great work friend :0
