That's better

Today I used some of my winnings from last weekend to pick up a pair of Adidas "Slide" sandals. Now I don't have to jam my Recovery-Socked feet into flip flops!



I also picked up some eload electrolyte tablets to try. I prefer to stick to plain water while running, so this seems like a convenient way to ensure I'm getting enough sodium.



Not much else to report. Hubby is out of town this weekend and I painted one of our bathrooms today (first room painted since we moved in January 2008 - enough of the builder beige). I still have to do a second coat tomorrow, so hopefully I'll be up for it after 27K/16mi.

I bought those tablets too--now if only I could recall where I put them I could take some tomorrow!

the first picture reminds me of soccer practice! i used to have the same slides, but instead of recovery socks they were soccer socks!!

I think I have those slides. Or something close to them!!

I hear you on the builder beige Marlene! We moved here in November 07 and nothing's been painted, but we are having most of the house done while we're at the cottage next month.

I have the same stylin recovery socks, yea for the sandals!

Morgan said...

So how do you like the recovery socks? I've been meaning to try them. Also, make sure you do a review on the tablets, I've been interested in the different options out there and trying to figure out how they work. Good luck on your 16 miler! :)

Like Heather, those sandals remind me of my days playing HS soccer! We all had those slip on Adidas sandals.

The flip flop photo gives me anxiety...so glad you got the slides.. I am curious to see how the tablets work out for you, I always feel low in sodium...

I LOVE the slide flip flops! I used to wear a pair after field hockey practice! SOOOOOOO comfy! Also, I'm so totally getting a pair of recovery socks. I was thinking about them all day after my 12 miler. :(

Yeah, yeah, pink recovery socks! :) Hope the 16 miler (and the painting) went well! I'm excited to hear what you think about the electrolyte caps!

Denise said...

I'm sporting my hot pink recovery socks right now. Love these things!

Toni said...

cute slides! Thank you for the advice on the garmin, after pushing mode and power it is working! YAY!

The Happy Runner said...

Ha ha ha! Your poor toesies in the flip flops! Good thing you got the slides.

Julia said...

haha! the socks+flip flops! I do it all the time too, and it looks so funny :) I'm glad you got some awesome looking slide ons!

Yes, salt intake is a must for me when running long in the heat. I've not tried e-load but have used Endurolytes. I also like Nuun because it flavors the water and makes me drink more (always a good thing) and it too provides some electrolytes.

Hope you had a good 16-miler!

Fair Weather Runner said...

RunToFinish said...

ok so I was reading your current post, but saw the pink socks in the flip flops and started laughing out loud...thank you for that very odd image

lindsay said...

i have been hearing about salt tablet-type things more and more lately. you'll have to give an update on how the eloads work for you!

i need to invest in some sport-flops for the same reason. i am not ashamed to wear knee high recovery socks out in public! :)
