So I'm running these days, but I am still under 15 miles per week because I have to take a day or two off between each run because my ankle is a little sore after every run. I have been very patient and always err on the side of caution, but my patience is running out so I finally went back to my doctor and he recommended a few weeks of physical therapy. I've been to physical therapy twice, and it seems to be helping. I ran five miles yesterday, and my ankle is feeling pretty good today!
I'm hoping my Christmas gift to myself can be a double digit run. So keep your fingers crossed!
Speaking of Christmas gifts, are you ready for some more gift ideas? Because in all my shopping adventures, I have come up with a few more gifts for the runners in your life. And because there are some unfortunate souls who have not yet found the gift of running, I included some things for them as well.
For the Non-Runner in Your Life
Maybe a fitness tracker will put that special someone on the road to running. Just maybe. Either way, the Soleus Go Fitness Watch is a winner.
And because the world seems to be All. Things. Star. Wars. There's this shirt. Or you can go with the Dark Side with this one instead.
And basically just because I saw it over the weekend and fell in love with it, there's this purse.
For the Runner in Your Life
First, I LOVE my Journal Menu running planner and think any runner on the planet would love one. They are customized and have great information tracking pages, including goal tracking, race planning, body measurements, personal records, nutrition guides, pace charts and more.
Then there's this vest. I have the same one from two years ago, and it is one of my favorite things to wear in the winter!! It is perfect for cold runs because it keeps my torso warm, but I don't get too hot like I do with a full coat/jacket sometimes. It has the right amount of pockets in all the right places. And it comes in five colors. I promise you or whoever you gift it to will love it!
And everyone loves having their running information at their wrist. So pick up a new Garmin for the one you love. There's something for everyone, whether it's my personal favorite the Forerunner 15 or something a little more high tech like the Garmin 225.
And since it's that time of year when we are all burned out from shopping and need to rest our tired legs, who couldn't use a pair of compression socks or sleeves?!? SLS3 has my favorites and they are offering free holiday shipping. Plus you can get 45% using the code: BLOG45 at checkout!
Also because I love my readers, I am hosting a Rafflecopter giveaway for a pair of SLS3 compression sleeves or socks of your choice! Winner will be announced December 24th. What better way to kick of the Christmas Eve festivities?!?
