Wednesday Favourites & Un-Favourites

Happy Hump-Day!

It’sthe day that I get to share with you some of my recent favourites and “un-favourites.” Please do feel free to play along and comment with all the things you’ve been loving/hating too! I love hearing from you all!

FAVOURITE – NEW SHOES!

I finally got some awesome new running shoes for the half marathon – Brooks Pure Flow 3’s. They’re an older model (I think this range is up to Pure Flow 5 now), so I scored them for a cheap $70 at Paul’s Warehouse. I can’t wait to put some solid mileage in them and give you some proper feedback on them!

UN-FAVOURITE – BREAKING IN NEW SHOES 1.5 WEEKS OUT FROM THE RACE

I can thank the lovely virus I had for the past week for this. I got these shoes over a week ago, so I had about 3 weeks to break them in (which was already pushing it). Then I got quite sick after that and today was my first day in over a week back at the gym and my first chance to really try them out.

They felt great, with nice cushioning, lightweight and comfortable, but there was a certain part in both of the shoes where the arch of feet are that was a bit stiff and rubbed quite a bit after just a few km’s. After 5km, I had a small blister on each foot which was annoying but expected when breaking in shoes I guess. I’m going to have a closer look at the shoes tonight to see what I can do and I’ll have to make sure I pop band aids on before the next run.

FAVOURITE – INSTAGRAM STORIES!

Oh man – I’m having so much fun with it! I never did jump on the whole Snapchat bandwagon (because did I seriously need another social media platform to deal with?!) so this whole concept is all totally new to me! Here are the snaps from yesterday’s and today’s stories!

I love following other people’s stories too, especially the videos! It’s so great to be able to see the faces and lives of people behind the Instagram photos! It makes it all so much more engaging and interesting I think.  Have you got Instagram? Follow me on @onedishaway, let’s be creepers and follow each other’s stories :)

FAVOURITE – FRIENDS SENDING ME FOOD PHOTOS

I love when my friends send me photos of things they’re making or eating, it makes me so happy to see that people think about me when they’re cooking/eating delicious food! These are a few snaps from my girlfriend Amber.

The first one is of her homemade mini quiches – she’s cooking a lot more meals from scratch at home and enjoying it, which makes me really happy to see! The second lot of photos are of her son who is currently hooked on coconut water. Super cute!
