New shoes

My new shoes came in the mail yesterday, so I was looking forward to breaking them in. Tonight's run was a 6 mile pace run.

2 mile warm up
Mile 1 - 9:23
Mile 2 - 9:35

3 miles race pace+
Mile 3 - 8:43
Mile 4 - 8:36
Mile 5 - 8:24

1 mile cool down
Mile 6 - 9:45

In a lot of pain today, but I think it makes me push myself. I kept thinking that this is not going to get the best of me.

New meds today, so we'll see how it works out. They better work because I spent $80 on two freaking prescriptions. Since these are new meds, there isn't a generic out yet. My insurance is great and it isn't much compared to what those that don't have insurance pay. But, generics are only $10. I am so thankful for my very generous insurance plan and do not understand how people can go without it. You know you're getting older when you are more excited about your great health plan than you recent salary raise! :)

Sounds like the new shoes worked out well as it seems like you are a speed racer.
And, being in a healthcare you won't believe who many plans suck so you're right that is something to be excited about. Hope the meds are worth their money.

No kidding with the insurance stuff! My son was on a medicine that wasn't covered by ours and it was costing us $200 a week. We don't have enough money to afford that for long. I'm not sure what we would have done if we couldn't have paid for it! Hopefully you wills tart feeling better soon!
