No Magic For Me! And My New Newton's!

, , 1 comment
So, girl's night out was fun, the sushi was awesome but Mike was not so magic for me.........

We only took one picture....I really need to get better at this. This was us before the show, I'm on the right, we look so happy.

All I can say is that my already marred view of Matthew McConaughey, only got worse. Every time he opened his mouth, I cringed, literally.......He was extra slimy in this movie, and although he was in shape and his body was pretty cut, he looked really old....EWWWWWWW!!!!

Channing Tatum, on the other hand, not only was he really in shape, but the boy could dance!! I mean, really dance, clothes on or off really didn't matter, he exuded all kinds of sexiness just in his dance moves!

There was really not alot of plot, the movie was pretty awful and definitely NOT worth almost $10 to see!! The worst part were all the grown women in the theatre acting like teenagers, whopping and hollering..... pure craziness!!

Have you been to see Magic Mike?? Let me know your thoughts!!

BTW, went to bootcamp on Saturday after a week of no exercising, the emphasis was biceps, triceps, chest, back and core.....I'll just say my arms and chest are so sore I'd like to cry and because of intermittant knee/IT band issues, I haven't run in almost 2 weeks, soooo I go back to bootcamp tonight and I'm gonna attempt a short run in the morning.

I just bought these shoes .......
Newton's Women's Neutral Gravity Trainer W00212

What Newton says: Newton Running's top-of-the-line neutral performance trainer is the ultimate shoe for Natural Running. Get a fast, flexible ride with greater energy return and less impact. The Gravity incorporates patented Action/Reaction Technology™ in both the forefoot and rearfoot. Extremely breathable and form-fitting upper. This shoe allows you to run naturally — faster with greater efficiency. Ideal for any distance.

I am supposed to ease into them and I have done a few short runs in them, but I find myself concentrating so hard on my stride and foot placement, instead of just running.......I have Vibrams that I am up to about 4 miles in, and the forefoot placement comes naturally in those....does anyone wear Newton's? If so, any tips for me??? I may end up sending them back if I can't get used to them!! I feel all kinds of awkward in them!

Happy Running,

  1. Hey there! My name is Brandon Wood and I head up the Social Media at Newton. You know how you "just run" in your Vibrams (and in your bare feet)? Well, just run in Newtons. Foot placement means little. What's important is having a nice high cadence (180 bpm), leaning from your ankles and landing under your body. You do all these things naturally when you're barefoot so just do the same in Newtons.

    The next time you run, take 60 seconds and think about the things I mentioned above. After that, forget it all and run like you did when you were a kid while looking at the horizon. Have fun!
