Summer: Day 84. Run a Mile in My Shoes.

Summer: Day 84. Run a Mile in My Shoes.

I’m training for a 5K with the Couch to 5K program. Which is awesome. But I’m already behind. I have no idea how I’m going to do this, or why I’m doing this, however I’m pressing on.

I think I need new shoes. That would help.

  1. New shoes would definitely motivate you :) And really strangely, so do new running socks.

    I started running 5ks earlier this year, also with the couch to 5k program. I wrote a little about why here: http://dashislittle.blogspot.com/2011/04/pay-attention.html (funny that it was inspired in large part by your friend Maggie).

    I hate to run, but I commit to run with you one time. If you want to run with me.
    Promise we won’t go fast.

    New shoes would definitely help! They are both inspiring and comfy. Your shoes look pretty worn down. I suggest either reading about shoes or going to a nicer running store to get help finding a good kind. If you look at the website for Brooks running shoes, I believe they still have an info sheet about how to fit shoes. In a nutshell, you look at the wear on your current shoes. This shows how you tend to roll (inward, outward, or maybe not at all) as you walk/run. Then, knowing that, you can find various fits that work with your feet. I have a high arch and roll outward (I wear down the outer edges of shoes), so I get shoes with a strong curve to the sole to help correct for my tendency.

    Good luck with the running! I am just wrapping up couch to 5k. I am still much slower than I “should” be on the program — I run each mile at ~ 12.30 pace. But it is still good, and I find that two months of running means I now miss running on the days I’m too busy to get out.

  5. Oooooh pretty new site! I need a new site design too but it’s a bit complicated.

    Anywho…I did the couch to 5k program starting Jan 1 of this year, and fell a bit behind but still managed to do pretty well in my first race, which was actually 4 miles. You can do it! I was still running and had scheduled two more 5ks when I broke my foot last month. Now I’m gonna have to start the program ALL over. Oh well!
