“Hey, I put some new shoes on,
And suddenly everything is right,
I said, hey, I put some new shoes on and everybody’s smiling.”
- New Shoes, Paolo Nutini
I think the time has come for me to retire my Saucony Omni’s. The pain that I have been feeling behind my right knee has gotten better, but after doing some quick calculations I realized my shoes are ready to retire. I’ve logged about 320 miles on them and have had them since September.
I haven’t changed anything in my running, so I’m guessing, well, I hope this is what’s causing the pain. I’m going to try and get fitted for new ones tomorrow before my 9 miler on Sunday.
Speaking of running, how’s the training going?
I’ve actually skipped a run or two to rest my leg, but other than that, my training has gone pretty smoothly. My plan has actually changed a bit. I’ve reworked it using SmartCoach from Runnersworld.com, which is what I used for my half marathon. I really loved that plan and although the heat got the best of me on race day, I set a few PRs while training.
I hope to write some more posts soon, things have been extremely busy lately! But, I have a few ideas floating around in my head that I really want to blog about.
Until next time!
