cushioned and to high in the hee Antworten

Like every runner, I owe a lot to my family for understanding and supporting my need and desire to both run and write about it. Even more-so in my case, I owe a great deal of thanks to my wife Adidas Superstar Femme for putting up with the seemingly endless stream of shoes and other forms of running gear that seem to make their way into Nike Air Max 270 Femme our house every week. In fact, it has become a joke for the kids that Mom has to shout at the UPS truck to “keep going, keep going!” as it approaches our house on delivery runs down our street. When it does stop, Dad has to jump up and down a bit and act really excited, and Mom pretends to throw a fit (I think she’s pretending anyway…). These are the things that pass for fun in the Runblogger household – it’s sad, I know
Apparently both the UPS man and I are barefoot (naturally!), and I’m shouting “Woooo!” and “Running Shoes!” (backwards) as I accept the box with the “shoe” tag on it. I’m not sure if I should be happy or horrified that this is what he associates me with, but I had a good laugh nonetheless.Nike Air Max 2017 Donne At least it’s a better association than the picture he drew of us last year for Thanksgiving (see below – yes, that is he Adidas Campus Femme and I in the picture) – moments like these are why I love being a dad!My initial plan for my second marathon this Fall (Manchester City in NH) was to try to run it in the Vibram Fivefingers Bikila. However, I have come to the somewhat disappointing realization that I just didn’t have enough time in between marathons (5 weeks) to gradually build mileage back up to the point where I would be comfortable running 26.2 miles in them. I did do a ten miler in the Trek Sports last weekend, and it went well, but recovery was slow (calves were barking once again, probably the shoes combined with residual Adidas Superstar Femmemarathon fatigue – usually takes me a bout 4 full weeks to recover completely), and pushing longer just for the Nike Air Max 90 Mujer heck of it didn’t seem wise at this point. I don’t really have a time goal going into the Manchester City Marathon since I surprised Nike Air Max 95 Dam myself with a BQ at the Smuttynose Rockfest Marathon (in the Saucony Kinvara), but I’d like to enjoy the race and not risk an injury. Furthermore, Manchester is extremely hilly, and although I find uphills much easier to run in Vibrams, downhills are the opposite, and it just doesn’t seem like the right race for which to push this little experiment. Given all of this, I find myself looking for an alternative shoe for the 26.2 in Manchester.I’ve taken some ribbing from my more hard-core minimalist friends about my liking of the Saucony Kinvara (see picture at left), which they deem too Nike Air VaporMax Dam highly cushioned and to high in the heel to be a truly minimalist shoe. To be honest, I agree with them – the Kinvara Nike Internationalist Mujer is not in the same league as something like the Vibram Fivefingers. However, I am also arriving at a point of (temporary?) clarity regarding my running shoe preferences. I tend to view shoes as tools, with different shoes serving different purposes, and for long runs and marathons I see value in have some extra protection under foot, particularly since form often tends to break down late in a long race. Any shoe that brings you a PR (and a BQ) is going to occupy a special spot in your rotation (regardless of how much of a role the shoe actually played), and I have no shame in saying that the Kinvara is a great marathon shoe, and a great all-around shoe for someone looking for something less but not wanting to go all the way to a shoe like the Fivefingers (you can read my full Saucony Kinvara review here).Despite my affinity for the Kinvara, I am ever the experimenter, and I really want to try something different in Manchester just to keep things interesting. As such, I am now leaning toward the newest shoe in my rotation, the Saucony Grid Type A4 (see photo above). The A4 is the next step downward toward a more minimal shoe in Saucony’s lineup, and it’s a shoe that I have long wanted to try. Saucony was kind enough to send me a trial pair to review (disclosure – these shoes were free of charge), and I took them for a first spin yesterday.
