Seriously you all have to go over to Rae's blog and read the race report for the first annual BRPTT! So great!
Sunday I did not win anything for sure. Unless there is an award for the runner who put too many miles on her shoes and paid for it with really sore shins and calves and had to walk back. Yuck! That is okay. Everyone needs a lesson in humility every now and then. I went out with my regular crowd Sunday and my left shin and right calf started bothering me pretty soon into the run. I stopped and stretched and slowed way down but it did not get any better. So when I got to the turn for the 5 mile loop I took it. And I walked the 2.5 miles back to the bagel shop. It was cold but at least it wasn't raining or snowing.
Yesterday was about 65 degrees and I would have loved to go running but I didn't because I knew I needed to get into new shoes before I headed out. Hubby and I went out to second sole and I tried on about 5 pairs of shoes. The guy looked at my feet and he says that the asics I have been wearing are way too much stability for me. The other guy also agreed that there is no way I pronate enough to need that much "shoe." So he had me try on a bunch of neutral shoes. I have no clue what that means but he thinks the pain in my right foot I have been having may be because the asics weren't letting me go through my natural range of motion.
So I decided to try out a pair of Mizuno's Wave Riders. They definitely feel different. I am going to try them out tonight and decide if they are keepers.
Hubby and I went out for a 40 minute walk when we got home and since it was so warm we let the cats out on the front porch and we read for awhile. It was a very nice evening.
Now we need to get everything put away so we can have a housewarming party before the holiday's. It is getting there! Slowly but surely!
