With clocking only 10 miles last week, it was nice to get back into a regular routine this week. 7 miles in the morning on Monday while testing my ankle went smashingly well.
Last night it was just a status quo run. I was
tired from being on my feet all day and definitely felt it towards the
end of my run. However, I was able to run at my normal speed--just
feeling a little achy in my feet. That leads me to the next segment.
I have been running in cushioned shoes for awhile. Either stability or motion-control style. Last summer I was doing a little barefoot running and I liked it. I just finished 'Born to Run' and am even more interested in going a little more minimalist.
But I don't
generally have much pain while I run. The occasional soreness on the
soles of my feet after 10-12 shifts at work is probably more situational
related and probably not helped by a minimalist shoe. However, I am
considering working a pair into my next purchase.
I wish I had $589423948 to spend on running shoes, but that is not the case.
I usually buy a pair at a time, wear them for 400-500 miles and restart
the process. But perhaps I might enjoy having something else. We'll
Tomorrow I have another 7
planned. We are getting the carpets cleaned with one of those lovely
'windows' that I am expected to be home so I better get 'er done early!!
