Billy likes to tease (aka try to tell me something I need to work on in a nice way) me about how many workout shoes I have. I like to reply by saying that they are absolutely necessary and that without them I would probably sit on the couch half the day watching tween television shows while eating frozen (yes, put them in the freezer and you can thank me later) swedish fish.
He then replies that I already do that but he will admit that I do get good use out of the ridiculous amounts of running/workout shoes that I have.
I guess that means I can get a pair of saucony’s that I have had my eye on.
As I am trying to really make sure that I get back into running with the CORRECT form I am making sure that I am using shoes that help me to achieve this.
The current rotation this week include…….
My Brooks Launch (zero-drop) I have been using for my longer runs (okay, 5 miles).
The Nike Free’s have been my go-to lifting and cross-training shoe.
And my New Balance Minimus Shoes have been used for my shorter runs (3 miles or less). I absolutely adore these shoes but I want to slowly build up my mileage in them and strengthen my feet and ankles before going full out ya know?
And for all the swimming I do…….Naked feet baby. I will spare you the picture…it ain’t pretty.
Are you obsessed with running shoes?
What shoes are in your current rotation? Or do you stick to one pair that you absolutely love.
