Of course I would share updates with you sweets first! After a good 6 cycles of running in the Asics 2100 series, I have branched out. I have had a slight pain in my left leg since the half marathon (4/16/11). It eventually went away after I took a couple weeks off of running, and I have had successful runs since, but yesterday's track workout made it flare up again. Perhaps flare is too strong a word.......I became aware of the leg issue, but it did not hurt. It has since disappeared again, but in the name of caution I have decided to replace my running shoes with:
Nike Lunar Glide.
You diligent sweets also know I have the racing flats, discussed here, on their way as well. So what do I do with all my old pair of running shoes? Well if Buckley had his way:
|Only in your dream's Buckley!|
In reality, I use my latest pair of retired running shoes as my everyday gym shoes. I use my current pair of running shoes for RUNNING ONLY. All other uses, like cross training cardio, weight lifting, grocery shopping, etc. are done in the latest retired pair. After that, I donate them in the designate recycle bins at the running store or pack them up and take them to the DI (Utah's version of the Goodwill).
|Back off buddy, those have not been retired yet!|
As a side note- If you have not voted on this weeks poll, do so now because the poll closes later today! (The poll located in the top right side of this page).
What about you sweets? Do you designate a pair of shoes JUST for running? How often do you replace them?
