What did you spend on your last pair of running shoes?
I just purchased a pair recently and it was $100. The new Brooks I purchased were a little cheaper than the Nike Equalons I had liked -- but were discontinued. The Equalons were about $140 a pair. In short, purchasing running shoes is an investment -- so take care of your investment.
Do you alternate your shoes with another pair? Do you only use your running shoes for running? These are just a couple of tips that will help extend the life of your shoes. Check out this post from Jenny Sugar from PopSugar that will offer you some other thoughts on making those shoes last longer.
Going to take a little break from blogging. See you later in the month.
Do you know approximately how many calories you consumed?
Let's assume for a minute that you are not meeting training and/or weight loss goals. It's hard to know where the breakdown might be unless you are keeping track of what you are doing.
Take a lesson from The Happy Runner blog and keep track of your training activities. By logging your miles, calorie intake and other stats; you can easily identify issues that may be keeping you from the goals you have set.
It's never too late to consider what will be your "kick off" to the season.
I'm sure it's warm enough now that many folks have already participated in a race event to "kick off" their season. Where I live in Iowa, many runners start their season with the Red Flannel Run in mid-February.
My family and healthy physical activities are my biggest interests. I regularly compete in races and triathlons. I LOVE sports, especially the St. Louis Cardinal Baseball (Go Redbirds!) and Mizzou Football (Mizzou-rah!). Also enjoy current events and politics. I also try to keep up with new movies and music.
