Shorts? Every time I happen to wear them lately my legs feel really strange because I have been living in running tights. Between running in my running tights and then the clean pair that I put on to wear for the rest of the day after I shower, I am always in them. They are just so warm and so comfortable that I look forward to wearing them 24/7.
7 miles on the good ol’ treadmill while watching the Biggest Loser finale. I only watched the first few episodes of The BL this season and after everyone was talking about Rachel winning (even though she was underweight) I was interested in watching the finale.
Now she thinks it is funny to close her eyes for pictures.
I have had the Brooks Transcends for a few months now and I have put over 200 miles on them so far. I like to really put a lot of miles on a shoe before I review them on the blog.
The truth—> I went into trying these shoes thinking that I really wouldn’t like them at all because they are so different than what I normally run in (they are heavier and offer more padding than I am used to). I thought I would only use them for really easy miles. I was wrong, I really do love them and I have used them for not only easy and long runs but also for a lot of speed work and especially on tempo runs.
The PureProject line is all about the ‘feel running experience’ while the Transcends are all about the ‘FLOAT experience’ and they really do give you that floating feeling.
They are the most cushioned shoe (by 20%) in the Brooks line. Add the BioMoGo DNA cushioning to the fact that the base of the shoe is super broad and they make it so that you want to wear them all day long because they are so comfortable. If you are on your feet a lot, these are the shoes to wear not only for running but all around.
The base of the shoe allows pressure to be distributed evenly which I love because they allow you to run the way that your body personally likes to run (not forced to run a certain way because the base is shaped a certain way). The guide rail in these babies are great at offering your body the support system you need and I feel like they really help to keep my legs aligned properly. The upper portion of the shoe is also crazy comfortable and plush.
At 10.1 oz they are heavier than my other running shoes but I am easily able to run fast in them and then when I race in racing flats my feet will feel so light after running in these and able to go faster… does that make sense?
Brooke is still obsessed with what the shoes were mailed in. The floating/astronaut theme goes perfectly with how the shoes feel. (PS I only tell you about things on the blog that I really and truly do love… these are one of them. I don’t mess around when it comes to running shoes).
There is just something so good about huge salads. I put in spinach, a baked sweet potato, a chicken breast, steamed carrots and quinoa (I put on an olive oil based dressing after picture) and some blackberries on the side.
And Brooke’s version of running on the treadmill. She loves this song. (The power switch was off on the treadmill so don’t worry, there was no chance of the treadmill turning on while she was on it).
She’s got the basic idea down and just like me she likes to read a book while she runs.
I think we have a future runner on our hands.
By the way, has anyone tried either of the new Oreo flavors yet?!? I think I might have to tonight.
What do you think about the Biggest Loser finale ordeal!?!?
Can anyone fill us in on the new Oreo flavors? Are you an Oreo fan?
Last time that you wore running shorts? Do they feel weird to you now too?
Can anyone else read while they run?
