I’m back on the gray, cold mainland and feeling a little bit bummed about it. I miss the sunshine and I didn’t even see a single rainbow! But I got out for a 30 minute run and covered 2.5 miles– a solid enough pace for me, today. I worked hard to push up the hills on my road route, and I felt good about that. Someday, though, I would like to start training for longer distances again…
I’m not completely sold on these new shoes. I took the Superfeet out and that helped the heel slippage a little bit, but it’s still there and my toes are falling asleep, too. I’ve put quite a few miles on these shoes already and I’m not sure if the store will take them back now, but I hate to waste the money I’ve spent on them.
Do all runners have such fussy feet, or is it just me? I feel like I’m always hunting for the “right” shoe but I can never find quite what I’m looking for. But then… I’ve had shoe issues all my life I guess, so it’s probably just the consequence of having wide, high-arched feet.
(They do make good flippers though! Maybe I am better adapted for the water. It feels like it, when I’m swimming.)
