I went to Luke’s Locker for the first time last weekend and got fitted for some new running shoes. I picked up some Nike Zoom Structure Triax+ 15‘s ($100)! I’ve been running in Saucony Progrid Omni 8’s but they’re giving me blisters on my left foot. I did a test run in my old shoes and was told that while my right foot was straight up and down, my left foot was not– thus, the blisters. The Nike’s are stability shoes with less of an arch, which should be good for my flat feet. AND, they come in black and pink! =)
I did two 3-mile runs in the shoes this week and my feet felt great, but then threw in a 7-mile run and had some foot pain. =/ Guess I still need to break them in some more. I’ll be wearing the Saucony’s for my half on Sunday!
I also purchased 2 new pairs of socks to try out, Body Glide, and a Tri-Berry Gu. I’ve only had the Vanilla Bean so far.
Any suggestions on good Gu flavors?
