5 Miles- Tuesday
The other day I had a friend in town visiting. And the following convo happened:
That said, I’ve been thinking about my feet a lot.
A- It’s time to get new running socks. All of mine have a serious case of the funk. And coming from a mom with not 1, not 2, but 3 boys, let me tell you that means something.
B- I need to new shoes and I’m in analysis paralysis with it all. My self-proclaimed “best ever, love of my life” relationship with my Brooks shoes went south when I started having pains in my feet and problems with the shoes. I shouldn’t have U-hauled that relationship.
C- I’m watching my form. With long runs in full swing I usually have 1-2 nice easy recovery runs so I’ve really been spending time thinking about each and every strike. The other day I did 5 slow, hilly miles sans any talk radio, music, etc. (not even a GPS – GASP!) and simply put one foot in front of the other noticing when I was straying from proper form and working to correct it.
Seriously, wild life I lead. I can tell your insanely jealous of this all.
Which leads me to ask you….
Do you have socks that you love?
I obviously am borderline obsessed with my ProCompression socks, but I need some ankle socks for the shorter to mid-length runs. No one seems to be impressed and my children are simply embarrassed when I show up to school in my blue argyle knee high compression socks.
What shoes do you love?
I have about a bazillion pairs of the New Balance Minimus line and LOVE my minimalist wear, but am unsure if I should continue on with the line or test out some new waters. All of my current shoes have at least 300-500 miles on them so the clock is sorta ticking on this one.
