Yesterday, I went outlet shopping with my mom. At first, I was kind of worried. What if I STILL couldn't find anything to wear in these stores? And then I said, eh, it is SO not worth worrying about. The first store that we went into was J. Crew. I have NEVER owned anything from J. Crew. My roommate from freshman year used to order from there all the time, but then again, she was a size six. Went in, pulled a couple size 14 capris from the tables and walls and tried them on. The first pair was too small, but that's because it was a closer cut. The second pair fit just right... mainly because they weren't a classic cut, but a more roomier cut. So, I now own my first pair of J. Crew pants! This was the trend for the rest of the day... Gap, Ann Taylor (another store that I never bought anything at before!), and Eddie Bauer. My goal was to buy pants for the summer, but I ended up getting a few tops as well. And (drumroll please!) I was able to stuff myself into a pair of size 12 pants at Bass. However, I'm not into wearing things that uncomfortably tight so they weren't purchased.
I did my final C25K week four run this morning. My allergies have been killing me over the past few days, and so I stopped a little early (about 20 seconds) on my first five minute run. But the rest of the time, I pushed through and my last five minute run rocked. Part of it was that I was running down an incline rather than up (which is what happens at the beginning of my run), but the other part was that it was my last week four run and I wanted to kick some ass. I do have to admit that the 20 minute run at the end of Week Five is intimidating me a bit. But, if I can't get through it next Thursday, I'll just try it again before I move onto Week Six.
