Yesterday I ran 7 miles, today according to my plan I need to run another 7. Wednesday 6.5, Thursday 8, Friday NBD 10, and Saturday a nice easy 9. Ummm. I don't really see this happening considering that my old shoes I have been running in are on their last leg. Which is why I think my hips, knees, calves, everything have been extra sore.
I need to break in my new minimalist New Balance that I got but I know that if I try to put up big numbers back to back in minimalist running shoes I will be dying from soreness. So...I see a lot of 4's and maybe some 5's in my future but certainly not 8, 9, or 10. Not in these shoes at least and I really don't want to drop any more money on another pair of shoes. Although, it will need to be done sooner rather than later as I like to have at least two pairs. One for the gym, and one for outside.
Currently I have my New Balance minimalists as my outdoor shoes, so maybe I will have to buy one more pair and then be done for another 300-500 miles. Sorry Alan. I am trying not to spend money. It's just hard sometimes!!!! Shoes are cheaper than more visits to the PT!
