Another sizzling night. Thankfully, John kept us to the shade. We hit a bit of a hill with our usually buddy Tibor and newly-back-to-running Courtney. We survived another round of 5 and 1s, and managed to not need a lift home. Although the ambulance we passed was very tempting.
Shoes Shoes SHOES!
Which ones to choose?
Pink ones, green ones,
orange and blues
No matter the colour, pick a pair that fits
Even if you look great
sore feet are the pits!
Trainer John gave us some great pointers on shoe shopping. Both Afton and I were drawn to the extra colourful shoes, but little did we know our top picks weren't suited to marathon running. John's #1 tip with shoes is "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." So since I fit in Nike shoes, I should stick with them. I didn't know how different shoes are, so if you are looking for the perfect fit, speak with the shoe experts. We train from the Tech Shop in Mission, and the guys there really know their feet. Always go by fit, and ask if that shoe comes in any other colours if the pair is really that ugly. Happy running!
