I put off my lunch (AKA going to the gym) for various reasons until super late in the workday so I didn’t take the time to stretch in the hot tub. Split these at .2m slow .3m fast at 6mph and 7.6mph. I think last Tuesday I did 7.5? I’ll probably keep creeping this up. Because why not?

Wore my new Inov-8 shoes. Had an issue with one of the shoelace eyelets digging into the top of my foot. I think the fabric of the upper is just a little too stiff in that spot, so maybe I can loosen it up with a shoe stretcher or something?

Finally lifted. Combined my Sunday workout with my Tuesday workout. Will possibly regret that, as well as taking a week off. Oh well.

I saw that you had answered a couple of questions about Nike and Adidas not being completely ethical. I was wondering if you knew which sports company is the most ethical/vegan friendly? Thanks :)
