I typically get 300mi out of a pair of running shoes before they start making my feet hurt. When my current pair hits 200mi, I purchase a second pair and start rotating them. Once the original pair has reached the end of its life, I switch exclusively to the new ones.
Last week I bought a new pair and today I took them out for their first run!
New pair – so clean!
New shoes can be tricky at first, and it took me a mile or so to get the laces just the way I like them. I am sure I looked totally weird as I repeatedly pulled over to the side of the path to readjust my shoes!
Since I am prone to injury, I am particular about my running shoes. This means that my new shoes are exactly like my old ones. Luckily I got some fun pink shoe laces from the running store to help me tell them apart!
The shoes of 2013…so far.
This week has been pretty intense, both work-wise and life-wise. Luckily, I found time to get my runs in, which helped keep me from losing my mind!
Miles Run: 26.3
Yoga Classes: 1
Strength Training Sessions: 2
Cross-Training: 30min elliptical
Weeks Until Marathon: 8 (cue panic)
Dissertation Proposals Turned In: 1
Things I am Grateful for This Week:
The first hints of fall are in the air and the cooler weather has been great for running. Plus, it’s football season!
I love doing brunch. The chance to hang out with friends, eat breakfast food, and not have to get up super early…priceless.
3) Pink Shoelaces
Picked up some new running shoes at Berkeley Running Company yesterday. Due to my foot size/mechanics, I am limited in what I can wear. Sadly, this pretty much excludes all the cute, brightly colored shoes. To help make my shoes a little more fun, the staff at Berkeley treated me to a free pair of shoelaces 🙂
How was your week?
