New Sneakers

Since I had the cash to do it, I went to Run For Your LIfe and got myself some new Mizuno Wave Alchemy sneakers. It's the same shoe I was already running in, just a different color.

As you can see, the Nike+ sensor is still attached, as I haven't gotten a Garmin watch yet. Since I recalibrated the other day, my run from yesterday was pretty accurate. 3.51 miles, 34:40. A new pair of shoes definitely makes a difference! It was a fairly mild day yesterday, as far as temperature goes. It's supposed to be 66 degrees today, and in the 70s for the rest of the week. Yahoo! I plan to run outside today through Saturday, and rest on Sunday.

What's your exercise plan for the rest of this week?

Ahhh...I think I need to get new shoes as well. How many miles are a pair of shoes good for? Do you know?

Hey Lorian! I was told 6 months/400 miles. I think I'm closer to 300 miles. 6 months is definitely the cut off for me. I got the last pair in September 2009, so I'm right on schedule. Good thing Run For Your Life keeps track in the computer, because I always forget. :)

I'm going to pay attention to the mileage this time and see what it works out to be.
