Weekend has started: jippie! The weather is going to be beautiful so I look forward to some running and enjoying the nice weather by sitting in my garden with my Breaking Dawn book.
Tomorrow we are going to an animal shelter to orientate on a dog. We both want another dog because we love the have a dog in the house. I don’t know if there will be one that we love but we’re just going to check it out.
I have a question for the runners. I’m confused! I “learned” that you should replace your running shoes after 1.000 (620 miles) to 1.500 K (930 miles) but today I read on another blog that you should buy new ones after 650 K (400 miles). Who can help me out here because if that’s true I should start to think about buying new shoes soon. My shoes still feel perfect on my feet, I never have trouble or pain caused by my shoes. So I would really like to hear your opinion on this.

Yesterday I went to the gym to do my pyramidrun on the treadmill. This interval was longer than any interval I’ve ever done and I have to admit that I didn’t do the last 200m en 100m because I was exhausted, but I will keep on trying.

What’s for dinner:
Yesterday I marinated some chicken in curry paste and yogurt and then grilled it. We ate it with Indian “naanbrood” and mango salsa.
Today R. wasn’t home for dinner so I bought an already finished Thai Noodle soup at the supermarket and ate a bagel with peanut butter.
Pic of the day:
Thursday: We had our favourite picture of Roussy printed on Canvas which arrived Wednesday. It’s hanging on the wall in our living room and it’s the first thing you see when you enter the room. It’s just like she’s waiting for you when you come home. I love it.
Friday: new issue of the Dutch Runner’s World in the mail. I love to read Runner’s World. Do you read it?
