Magic, pure magic
Besides race mornings and PRs, new shoes are the most exciting thing in a runner's life. Well in this runner's life anyway.
My tendon pain flared up a bit after Tuesday's magic, naked run of awesome (pretty sure I also saw a unicorn while out there). Usually when this type of pain sets in I can blame the shoes. Too many miles, corrective inserts for those of us who have a 'special' stride too flat or a combo of both. Or just not supportive enough shoes to begin with. So we are going to try the above pictured blue and green beauties tomorrow and see if running feels better.
One thing I cannot seem to do for no apparent reason other than I am just lazy is keep track of the mileage on my shoes. I could write it down, I could keep a spreadsheet which would work well with my full on nerdiness, even just estimate looking back. But no for some reason I refuse. But no more. Today, TODAY I vow to keep track of the mileage on my shoes so that when they get close to the 400 mile mark I know to replace. This seems smarter than the method I use now which is waiting until something starts to hurt.
Do you track shoe mileage?
If yes, how do you do it?
What is the most exciting thing to hit your mailbox lately?
