OSIM mini run finishing

Week 10

We are in week 10 of our training. 2 more months to go before race day. We definitely have not done all the training so we don't know what the outcome might be. But by far, this might be the toughest program that we have done. Our legs get hammered during the track repeats and the tempo is okay but add in the Insanity cross training, it is really quite insane.

Glad to say that I completed every single workout this week. It wasn't easy. During the long run earlier on, I could feel the fatigue still present in my legs from Thursday's track. I didn't hit the pace that I wanted to but at least I completed the 13 miles.

The weather today is great for running by the way. It was nice running through the drizzle for the first part - feels like running through a sprinkler and the sun only came up for the last half an hour and it wasn't even too hot although it was close to noon time.

I have at least 72 hours of rest from running before the next one. Thank goodness!

For the feet

Introducing.. Miu Miu, Steve Madden, Steve Madden and Staccato

I have a soft spot for bendy ballet flats especially when they come with bows and super soft leather

It's so hard to find good and comfortable shoes that won't fall apart quickly. So when I do find them, I don't mind paying a premium. I don't only shop for pricey shoes as some unbranded cheap pairs turned out to be lasting and comfortable so as long as it fits well and feels comfortable, I don't mind it not coming with a label.

Paying a few hundred bucks for a pair of shoes might seem too much but seriously, sometimes it is really worth it. Take for example, the pair of beige lambskin Mary Janes that I got from Prada, it lasted 7-8 years and I wore it to death till the rubber beneath started to split. The best part, is that it gets better with age.

The shoes (pictured above) look boring, but I was specifically looking for those. Grey no heels boots, nude low patent heels (2 inch), black low heels (2.5 inch) in suede/patent, leather flats with bow. Now you know why I take so damn long to find these shoes! Although, I do get distracted along the way and land up with a few other unexpected pieces :P
