Monday-7.25 miles run/walk emphasis on the walk. It was about a million degrees out and we were all hurting.
Tuesday-Hi/Low cardio class
Wednesday-3 mile run in 31 minutes, getting the feel of the new shoes.
My feet are seriously suffering from my 20 mile run around the Y track Friday morning. Not only do I have blisters under about six of my toenails, I had blisters on both big toes and the side of my right foot. What the heck? I have a week and a half before the marathon and I felt the need for some serious action.
I went to a local running store, and they put me on the treadmill to analyze my gait. This is not the usual store that I go to, but I had a good experience with them recently with a return so I thought I'd check out the high tech stuff they offer. They had me hop on the treadmill barefoot, and run for about a minute. Then I got to see exactly how my feet react when I run. I also decided that if I could just run barefoot I'd be very happy, but it was a little weird to be on the treadmill with no shoes on. Anyway...
They fitted me in the same shoes I have been training in. Guess my local running store does know their stuff, without all the high tech gadgets.
I got a new pair of these:
But I also decided to go with a pair of these:
