New Shoes

It's been a busy day, but I did make time for a 4 miler with my new "silver bullets" and it went well. New shoes are always a bit...weird...at first. I mean, the old ones are so molded to my feet that slipping into new ones always feels stiff and awkward at first, but after the first mile this evening, they felt good and I could tell the difference in fresh cushioning.

1: 9:39
2: 9:43
3: 9:35
4: 9:29

Total Time: 38:27

Now, I have to skedaddle because we're meeting with "our people" for our tax preparation this evening. Cross your fingers for a swawesome tax return!

Nice job with the bullets! Sometimes when I slip on new shoes I really realize how stretched out my old ones were!

Erin said...

Tell Rochelle we will be in soon to prepare our taxes too :) Waiting on one more stupid document.

New shoes can be so much fun...or they can suck. I hope yours are of the SO MUCH FUN variety. :)

Hope the silver bullets give you great speed and endurance. Oh, and I don't thinks I told you the other day but awesome job beating your PR, what an accomplishment!

Interesting visualization...feet as bullets. I see another PR in your future.

The first run in new shoes (that fit, of course) is always fun.

I am so glad that we are not going for speed on our race, but distance. You would smoke me with those bullets. I have to agree with your better half, "WTF is 'periwinkle'?" If it is some illegal substance that makes you run further, then I will have to get some of that, what ever it is.
