Last night's track club workout:
Date: 03/04/08 05:30 PM
Distance: 5.54 miles
Speed: 6.3 mph
Pace: 9' 33 min/mile
Last night the BiM site was down and they were having transmission problems. I couldn't save my activity and upload it to get my stats. When I was able to save my activity and upload my info, It has my first mile split at something like 23 minutes, but the above stats do not reflect that extra time, which makes no sense. I checked the support section on their website and it turns out that I wasn't alone.
Yoga - 30 minutes. Does the treadmill at RRS to try out their shoes count? I tried on 5 pairs of shoes and ran on their treadmill each time for about 2 minutes each, then I went between a couple of pairs of shoes a few times. I'd say I spent about 15 minutes total on their treadmill. ;)
I had the people at RRS do the entire analysis of my feet ~ how I run, my foot strike, etc... I've never done that before, they even took a video of me running and did a computerized foot strike analysis, which was rather cool, but I didn't learn anything new. They said what I was wearing, the Asics Gel Kinsei 2, should have been a good shoe choice for me, but with the style change brought on issues I'd never experienced before. My ankles shouldn't hurt. I'm back in the Asics Gel Nimbus, the 9 version (pictured right), and they're going to be discontinued. I stopped wearing the Gel Nimbus when they changed the style on the 8 version. I also liked the Nike Air Max Moto + 5 (pictured left), but I'm really hard on my shoes and Nike just doesn't hold up as well as Asics. The Nike is my second choice if I can't get the Asics Gel Nimbus 9 again. I did get an extra 10% off because I belong to the track club, in addition to my 10% VIP discount, so I saved some cash there. I really didn't want to get another pair of running shoes, but pain is not an option.
