New shoes

New shoes

Lovely day here and went to Run4It at lunchtime to get a gait analysis and buy a new pair of shoes to replace my two year old cheap as chips Adidas - very interesting experience and they were very helpful. Tried out three different pairs and the Asics pair I ended up with were the cheapest, still pricey but not quite as much as I thought I'd end up spending. 

Watching the football on the TV just now but then out for my W3 Run3 run outside this afternoon - that'll be a new experience for me as all my running up to now has been on the treadmill.

Lovely Asics! Fab colour too! May you be fleet of foot and faster than the wind in them! 😀


Nice shoes! Take care when running outside from treadmill for the first time...


Very nice shoes, great colour ☺


Well that was different to normal - first couple of hundred yards the tarmac felt really hard but I got used to it and new shoes were fine

Last three minute run was tougher than the two previous runs in the gym - not sure I got the pace right and was breathing out of my backside when Laura came on to say 'one minute to go' - last couple of runs I've upped the pace for the last 60 seconds and been comfortable but today I was hanging on, got there though

Brief hail shower as I did warm down walk was just what I needed - off for a shower now and feeling fantastic.

Day off tomorrow then onto week 4
