I'm getting supa excited for San Antonio Rock and Roll this weekend! I didn't realize just how fast it's coming up. Tomorrow will be a light workout and then rest until race day. I still haven't decided if I'm taking it easy and enjoying my first Rock N Roll, or if I'm going to beat last weeks PR. (1:48) I do know I'm suffering from a bad shoe situation. These puppies are just not working out.
I was super jazzed when I bought them, and the first few long runs in them were alright, but then all the sudden, my CALVES are on fire, anything after 5 miles. They're a pretty minimal running shoe, so I think I need something a little more cushy for the pushy.
I'm thinking about the Saucony Progrid Kinvara 2. I am trying a pair on tomorrow. I have high arches and mid-foot strike. From the reviews, these look like a solid shoe for my foot. I wish Mizuno hadn't effed up the Wave Riders! I wouldn't be having this issue otherwise.
Best running shoes a girl could ask for!
Shoe issues aside, I had a little breakfast for dinner. Doesn't get any better than chocolate protein waffles slathered in berries and sugar-free syrup.
Wish me shoe shopping luck tomorrow. Imma need it.
What shoes do you run in?
Why do they work for you?
I have high arches and mid-foot/fore-foot strike, so I need something that works with that.
Anyone have any running events coming up this weekend?
I'll be at the San Antonio Rock N Roll, working my 5th half mary.
