Today was so fun(minus the fighting, screaming kids in the car for an hour)...still fun. We went to a running store in Boise that my doc told me about called Idaho Running Company. They have this uber fancy machine that takes a snapshot of your step so you can choose the shoe that works perfectly with your individual step. So I found my, supposedly, perfect shoe today. Dude, they are NOT lying when they say your shoe can make or break your run. Right when we got home, we changed and headed for the gym. We jumped up on the treadmill, and I could immediately feel a difference. It felt soooo much better! I had been wearing the same tennis shoes for over 5 years...I know...gross. I took 1 minute off my 1mile, 2 minutes off my 1.5, and, GET THIS....FIVE minutes off my 2 mile!!! It was amazing!! I'm sooo gonna hurt tomorrow LOL
My new shoes are my new favorite thing I own :D They're Pearl Izumis Women's Cruise, and I highly recommend them if you have a neutral step like mine and like a little more cushioning.
Thanks for reading and hope everyone is having a fantastic day!
