|Mizuno Ascend 6|
New trail running shoes arrived at my door yesterday so I tried them out for half of my 15 mile run on the treadmill today. I like to try out new shoes on the treadmill in case there's a problem and I need to return them. No problems with my shoes, but finishing the run wasn't easy. I usually take a day off before my long run day, but not this time.I should have thought of that during the run - at least I would have felt better about feeling tired. I'm really glad I hung on to the end, though - now!
My comfortable new shoes are Mizuno Ascend 6 and only cost $63. I used the code, GottaRunNow, to save 10% at Running Warehouse. I wanted to let you know about the savings code in case it's time for some new shoes for you, too. Isn't it always?!
Here are the number of miles I've run this week: 11, 8, 10, 7, 15, (6 tomorrow, hopefully) = 57. That's why it's always time for new running shoes!
I'm not sure whether I'll be trail racing this fall or not, but I am registered for the Houston Marathon, held on January 13. The training continues...
New Shoe Note: Unfortunately, the Mizuno Wave Ascend 6 shoes are not comfortable for me to run in outside. They felt fine on the treadmill, but when I ran with them outside, I noticed how little cushioning they had in the sole. Because of this, I'll probably only wear them for short runs and won't buy this model again. Here's a positive, detailed review of the Wave Ascend 7 shoe, in case you're interested in them.
