TEST DRIVE - NEW SHOES


RUN: 30 MIN. SRR (SLOW RECOVERY RUN)

When I was at the USAF expo in September, I found a pair of gel nibus on sale ($49). I usually wear gel kayano but knew that I needed a new pair soon so I bought them. Tonight I tried them out. After the first 15 minutes -I knew they bothered my right forefoot. I know this will sound strange but they also had a creeking sound in the right shoe. It was worth a shot. I can wear them to work.

I ran outside with Dakota. The sun was setting and the temperature was still about 50. A perfect evening.

I'm using a pair of Nimbuses at the moment. For the first 3 runs they felt quite uncomfortable, and I was wondering if I had bought the wrong shoes. After that they started to fit much better, and have been the best pair of shoes I've had so far.

I love my Kayno's. I'm on my third pair. I know that they are espensive but I look at it as less than one trip to the doctor.

I don't trust shoes that are on sale--I've been burned before. I read that shoes have a shelf life and that they lose their cushioning even if they haven't been worn. The running stores here give a discount to running clubs and associations, like US Track and Field. Maybe some in your area do the same.

I've sometimes had luck with replacing the sock liner with a gel insert.

Hi, Waddler!! Thanks so much for commenting on my blog...I just updated your blog to my role.

Cool for you to be planning already for the Pig. It's a big event in Cincy. I'm pointing to the big half marathon in Indy the day before. Hope to be under 1:50 this year.

Looking foward to reading more!!
