The shoes that worked out the best for me were Brooks Adrenaline GTS 12. It's funny because I ended up with a totally different size than I usually get (I guess I should have had a proper fitting a long time ago!) The guy fit me into a size 9 with a 2A (narrow) width and I usually get an 8 or 8 1/2 and medium width (only because medium is the easiest to come by), but then I have to tie the laces super tight. I definitely should have done this a long time ago!
My first run today was on the treadmill and it felt fine. The shoes and inserts felt good. I'm happy. I went crazy with the moleskin, so as not to aggravate my healing blister. The run was boring as hell because I had to stare at the clock on the treadmill to make sure I got the timing of my intervals right, so I felt like I was just counting down the clock the entire time. I somehow messed up my interval timer app on my iPhone (accidentally shut the sounds off - so it couldn't inform me when the intervals were over...kind of the whole point of using the interval timer, so it seems a little silly that you can even turn the sounds OFF, but whatever!) Have to run again tomorrow and now that I have my snazzy new running shoes, I'm not dreading it as much as I could be.
Got a babysitter and met some friends at Little Mexico tonight. It was really fun (we so need to do this more often!) I had a few drinks, and I'm worried I'm going to feel it in the morning!!
