Yeah, I'm planning on beating that tomorrow here in Chicago
Who’s doing Des Moines this weekend?
anyone here trying for sub 3? We can link up and talk Cyclones to try and take mind off things for awhile haha
I am but sub 3 is quite a bit too fast for this old man.
How’d Chicago go for you?
Pretty good. 4 minutes under my goal. I'm still coming back from a surgery so I'm quite a ways from PR yet. But the weather was good other than a little windy.
How everyone do today? I went 1:58 which I was happy with as coming back from injury.
Shout out to my 65 year old aunt that ran it in 2:00 and is her first half ever.
Nice job. You're aunt is bad ass. Ran about 4 minutes faster than Chicago last weekend so pretty happy
Had a plan to go through 13.1 in 1:28 and see what i could do. I did not hit that as i came through half in 1:25:30 was feeling great but knew i wasn’t going to sustain. Hit a wall 18-21 but powered through and finished in 2:53:47. Pretty happy with it!
Ran the half with my wife this morning, couldn’t have possibly asked for better weather!
Wow, nice job
Ran the half. 1:59:37. Pretty good for a 58 year old, I'm happy with it.
My wife and daughter just told me I got beat by someone wearing a shark costume
Shark was on the go today ... however he/she did the entire thing in that costume is crazy
I've been running between 10-20 miles a week for about a year and a half now. About 6 months ago, I went to Fleet feet in Des Moines to get some new running shoes. They have a "Fit ID" that does a 3D scan of your feet so they can determine which shoes and insoles are best for you. I'd never worn insoles before, but I bought the pair they recommended for my pronated stance.
How long does it take to get used to a new pair of insoles?
Ever since I started wearing the new shoes with insoles in them, my feet are the first thing to get tired during my run. Sometimes they are a little achey at night after long runs. I know that it is probably good for my knees because I do have a very pronated stance, but I would've thought I'd be used to them by now.
Should I just ditch them?
Go back and tell them your issues. I've never used insoles and I'm very pronated too. I wear 2-3 different shoes while training with each being a little different 'type' of shoe. I have a high cushion, stability shoe I wear most but also have a couple low cushion, neutral shoes that I wear to 'strengthen' my feet and lower legs.
How many miles do you guys typically put on your shoes? Mine have 300+ on them now, wondering if it’s about time.
400-500 miles although I've had some that didn't last close to that namely addidas boost.
Between 300-400 my left knee used to buzz when it was time for new shoes. Handy but right foot is too damaged by arthritis to run anymore MISS IT!
