So… 9 degrees in Maryland… You know what that means, right?
Treadmill at the gym!
So, after dinner was mostly made, the wife took over and I headed off to the gym! Apparently 7 o’clock is a fairly popular time in the evening for the New Years Resolution crowd. I’m not knocking them mind you, I applaud anyone that is trying to better themselves and is exercising. I was simply suprised to see all of the treadmills but two taken! Fortunately, I only needed one, so the odds were ever in my favor.
Now, if you follow me on facebook, you saw me post a picture of my new shoes. If not, I will be ever so kind, and show you now!
They are Saucony’s zero drop shoe. Now that Altra has raised the size of their shoe sole from regular to ginormous, I am sadly forced to try other makes/models.
Why do I mention this now? Tonight was my first run in them! So, when I hopped on the treadmill, it was with my Shiney new shoes! My first impression of them is pretty fair. The feel a bit more wibbly-wobbley then my Instincts, but to be fair I have been running in that model for years. It wasn’t enough to bother me, but noticeable at first. I adapted quickly.
I’m not going to do any more of a review here now, as I want a few more runs in them first.
I got three miles in at 7 mph and then walked a short cool down. I am ready for the ultra-cold to pass, do I can get back outside. This run seemed to tame forever! However, forever passed. Run complete, Janathon day 7 done!
