I woke feeling a little dizzy thanks to my allergies (thanks to the weird coldish rainy weather we had) so I went back to sleep for a little while instead of getting my run in.
Busy day at work doing more spreadsheets and trying to track down work orders to get stuff done in the lab. Thankfully, I didn't get interviewed by any inspectors. I did go up to the 4th floor lab and saw people with clipboards walking around so I went back downstairs
Today my shins felt kind of stiff but I think it is just arthritis because it doesn't really feel muscular. I had gotten a pair of Nike LunarEclipse+ to try out. They are supposed to give stability only when you need it. I had tried them a little on Tuesdays run but none of my shoes were making me feel that great so I tried again today. I did my main running portion in the shoe that felt best on Tuesday, my neutral Nike Air Pegasus. My right shin felt kind of stiff but it had been all day. Otherwise, I felt good. Afterward, I did 2x 2.5 min run/1 min walk in the LunarEclipse+. They felt great and my shin didn't feel stiff either. Then I did the same 2x 2.5 min run/1 min walk in the Asics Gel Kayano's. My right shin muscle started to feel sore at the end of the second run. I ended up going a total of 4 miles. I think I still have some working out with these shoes but I am going to try my long run on Sunday, which is scheduled to be 2.5 miles, in the LunarEclipse and see how they feel outside. I hope one day I will find my "shoe" but for now, I will switch these around and see which work out best.
I am so glad it is Thursday!! Have a great night all!!
