I tend to rotate shoes a lot because I had trouble finding the right pair for me. My Kayano 18s were the first pair I've run in consistently, and now that they have almost 300 miles on them, I can safely say they're truly worn in.
|I've successfully rubbed a hole in the heel on both shoes!|
I realized that running shorter distances has increased my pace, but it's also caused me to forget how to monitor pace on my own. I need to relearn that.
On the bright side, I'm kind of loving being able to run a mile in the 8s!
|Outdoors, I'm going out too fast. Indoors, I can increase my pace as I go.|
For those of you who aren't as lucky as I am to have the summer off, I know today is the first day of the work week. So here's some much-needed motivation to start the week off right.
What motivates you?
How do you monitor your pace on a run?
What was your first pair of used-until-they-were-useless running shoes?
