- Earlier this week, I went to Road Runner Sports because I had a gift certificate. I didn’t find anything I needed, but I did end up getting a gait analysis done. Interestingly, my arches are so high that when they did an impression of my feet, no connection at all showed between the ball of my foot and my heel. She also showed me a bit of collapsing of my right arch when I run (the foot with the achilles issue) and convinced me to try the custom inserts. Verdict so far (after one run)? I hate them. They force my foot to land in an unnatural way. I’ll run in them one more time, but it’s pretty likely I’ll be returning them.
- I have a 6, a 10, and a 3 mile run left this week. I prefer to run my long run during the week, but right now I have a choice of running the 10 in 29 degree (feels like 12) weather or running it this weekend with temps in the high 40s/low 50s. Needless to say, I’m trying to figure out where I can shoehorn a 10 mile run into an already over packed weekend.
- This Sunday I’m running my first race of the year – the Love the Run You’re With 5k. I know there are going to be a lot of bloggers there, so look for me. I’ll be doing packet pick up before the race and then running with my clients. I’m really excited to have them experience their first race! Next up is a 10k training group starting in about two weeks.
Don’t forget my ALO Capri giveaway! (If you’ve donated to BOMF prior to the giveaway, I’ll give you the extra entries based on that.)
