Wood Watches For Men

Beautiful and stunning… those are the words that popped into my head when I opened the box. Truly breathtaking, and honestly I usually don’t get this excited over something unless it’s some running or fitness gadget. But Jord took my breath away with their wooden watches. .

If you’ve never heard of Jord before, they are known for their 100% natural, hand-finished authentic wood watches. Jord watches come in various styles and colors. From battery to hand wound, there is truly something for everyone. And if you are looking for an awesome way to present and store your watch, Jord does that too. Can you imagine giving this to someone as a gift?

The presentation alone in my opinion is a gift. But the beautiful watch inside will definitely bring smiles.

I Love My Screw Shoes - Enjoying The Run

I wrote about screw shoes earlier in a #TuesdayTidbit, but today was the first time that I've ever had a pair. Basically I took an old pair of running shoes and my Hubby, Father-in-Law and Lil Man took care of putting the hex screws in the shoe.

As the snow was falling last night, my very first thought was
that I couldn't wait to get out there today and give them a try. So far with this injury the longest I've run is 4 miles, (and that was Wednesday) but that was on the treadmill. I ran 2 outside last week. So my goal today was 3.

It was cold. It was fairly windy, but it was beautiful out. For the first half mile, I could feel the hamstring. Basically I can feel the tension (at times like a poking sensation) where the hamstring attaches to my pelvic region. But as I ran, either I was too cold to notice or it eased up, but I forgot about it.

I kept the pace for the most part comfortable with a push. It was my first time running with my new screw shoes, it was slushy out, slick in spots, and I didn't want to really push the pace with me adding distance each week. I did register for the Capital 10-Miler, and I'm trying to build back up to 10 miles.

So at this point, distance is more important than the pace that I'm running them. I have to constantly remind myself of this. I was finally running in the 8's, at times 7's when the injury really hit me full force. But I know I have to be patient. And I know that I shouldn't increase pace and distance at the same time.

But today, I needed the fresh air. I took the time to think and pray. I took the time to breathe.

  1. Ok - got it - had to read your Tuesday Tidbits - now I want some - I live in the snow and lots of slippery surfaces outside - Thank you!! And, so glad to hear you are running again - I had a couple of injuries this year and am getting ready to start runs again -

    1. Good luck starting back. I couldn't believe how much better traction I had with the screw shoes. And super easy to make!

  2. I did this last year when we had some random snow. I live in the south, so it's rare. But I searched online and found a few tips and went for it. I was really surprised at how well it worked!

    1. I couldn't believe it. I thought it was really more hype than reality. I'm glad I was wrong :)
