A Warmer Run :-) – RunLog 4-28-17

Happy Birthday Katie :-)!

Today’s run was one of those easy runs that stayed easy. Which was exactly what the doctor ordered, err body, err just what I needed. Well something like anyway.

The weather was warmish, 72*F, cloudy that turned sun almost as soon as I got out there, with a slight breeze, absolutely gorgeous weather for a nice walk, but a little warm for running (not that I will complain after this winter). So I did a LOT of sweating after that first mile.

I didn’t push, but I did maintain a steady pace throughout and I felt pretty good the whole way.

Today I wasn’t thrilled with the snugness of the Guide 9’s, I have a feeling that as the weather gets warmer, my feet swell a little more and causes the shoes to feel tighter than they might otherwise. So the G9’s might be limited to cooler weather, we will see.

A good run.

  1. I get what you are saying about tighter shoes in warmer weather … last year I loved the Nike Free 3.0 Flyknit all summer due to the light, flexible upper that gave much more than the Saucony Kinvaras I have stuck with for 4 versions now. But that shoe was killed off, and I just found the replacement (Nike Free RN Motion) … but still too pricey so I am rotating a couple of pairs of the Sauconys.

    Whew – definitely warm at 72! My early morning was just over 60 and that was wonderful – funny, when I was in southern NJ mid-week it was 55F and felt much warmer due to the humidity!

    • Yeah, I am still trying to figure out the correct shoe that comes in EE width, New Balance fit perfectly, but are too firm (causing PF flare-up) or the drop is too low and bothers my Achilles. The Saucony EE is not quite wide enough especially when it is warm, but rides like a dream, Nike EE fits a little better than the Saucony, but not quite where I want in the heel, so just plugging along attempting to find the Goldilocks fit of just right, but a lot closer than I was before figuring out the need for EE-width. I know if I went into a running shoe store they would tell me to size up to an 8.5 or 9.0, but I don’t want to do that anymore, I “accidentally” found that the correct length of a shoe makes a big difference in how they feel on your too. So I am still the princess and the pea, but at least I have found the right kind of bed to look for. 😉
