Well, today I decided that my jar of Nutella had to join my jar of Biscoff spread...
My lack of self-control is starting to get on my nerves! I do really well until about an hour after lunchtime every day. I think I need to start planning some sort of activity or project to work on during that time to avoid eating a bunch of junk.
I won't be buying any more Nutella or Biscoff spread--that stuff is expensive and I totally wasted a jar of each.
I was so excited yesterday when I saw my CafePress.com order in the mail--until I opened it and saw that they screwed it up. I ordered the shirt with the writing printed on the BACK of the shirt, and they printed it on the front. I was going to exchange it for a correct one, but I realized that the color was ugly anyway, so I decided just to return it (the only color options were white and pink--I chose pink, but it's an ugly pink):
So I called the company and explained what happened, asking if I could return it. They said they would just give me a refund, no need to return the shirt. At first, they weren't going to refund the shipping ($6) but I said that since it wasn't my fault they printed it on the front rather than the back, I should get a full refund, including shipping--and they agreed to do that as a "one time courtesy".
I also discovered that I'm going to have to return my Bondibands :( The ones that I just bought are made of a different fabric than the other Bondiband I have, and they're very slippery--they won't stay on my big fat head. The fabric of my black one (a gift from a reader!) has some grip to it so it stays in place. I'd like to get a couple more that are made out of that fabric.
I'm just not having much luck with new running purchases lately... Nuun, the running shirt, and now the Bondibands.
I did, however, use my new shoes during my run today and had no problems with my feet. They're the same model of shoe (Brooks Adrenaline 11's), just brand new. It was raining outside, so I decided to go to the rec center and run intervals on the indoor track. I wore the Garmin foot pod, and I swear that the calibration must be way off. I calibrated it on the outdoor track at a an easy pace, and I think the pod is only accurate when I run at that pace. When I run much faster, it isn't accurate anymore.
It said my pace on my sprints was 8:30-8:45 min/mile... and I KNOW I was going much faster than that. My heart rate got up to 95% of the maximum, and I'm pretty sure I was running at about a 7:30-7:45 pace. When I slowed down to run easy between sprints, however, it seemed pretty accurate at a 10:30-11:00 min/mile. I have no idea how to solve this problem for the future. I like doing my intervals on the indoor track, but I don't know how to get an accurate measurement.
