Treadmill - Impromptu Run - Tuesday, August 3
I don't normally run on Tuesday nights. Normally I do a SET class and then other random cardio. However, the Vibram project (for now) is a failure. My feet are too wimpy to go the distance (for now) and I'm not yet ready to race in them (or run a distance farther than 7ish miles). With that in mind, I have about 500 running miles (plus hundreds of class and other cardio hours) invested in my New Balance shoes. I figured I should probably get a new pair until I master the Vibrams. I left a bit early from work to head over to the Boulder Running Company. I have trained with Nike, Pearl Izumi, and most recently New Balance. While there wasn't anything wrong with my last pair of shoes, I wanted something different. I tried Asics, Brooks, Saucony... but I ended up with Mizunos!
So anyway, with my schedule the way it is, I wanted to do a shorter treadmill run to be sure that they fit and were comfortable before wearing them for a longer run or race.
They felt pretty good, and I paced faster than I have in ages.
Also, this is my last month of my fundraising! I'm so close to my goal - less than $300 to go!! Anything at all helps!
