Well yesterday I had a nice treadmill run in the new shoes. 6.2 miles. I have already highlighted my log sheet to track the mileage on them. These shoes are a change for me. My last two pairs were Saucony's and these are Asics. After inspecting my last pair the salesman suggested that I go slightly narrower. My last shoe was a wide and though it seemed comfortable there was considerable wear inside the shoe. The salesman said that was from excessive movement.
I certainly can't complain after yesterday jog. I still have time to continue trying them out. But I thik these are going to work out fine.
A number of you have sent me comments or e-mails asking what is a Huey. A Huey is 3.27 miles or 2/8 of the distance of a 1/2 marathon. Other duck characters represent the other 8ths. I posted a chart last January on this blog.
This link will take you to it.
Todays exercise will have to wait for after work. But I am prepared. I am bringing a gym bag with me and will stop at SNAP afterward.
Update 11:40pm. Made it to SNAP packing the gym bag proved to be a fine idea. I did 30min of strength training and then hopped onto the TM. About 1.5 miles in I developed a stitch in my right side so I slowed things down to a walk and after a bit it seemed to pass. It came right back once I jogged again though. Not sure what caused it, but I decided to listen to my body and I stopped at 2.64 miles. The shoes did nicely again tonight so I am pleased with that.
Till next time...
