After some thinking, and thinking.... and my crappy run last night I decided that it is time I try some different shoes. The shoes that no longer work for me are apparently support shoes, and I am doing better in neutral shoes, these said shoes also have a heel to toe drop of around 13mm. My calves always seem to ache in them so I am moving down to 10mm, hoping maybe that will be my sweet spot.
The shoes I am excited to receive in the mail are:
I am hoping that these will work for me, as my Brooks GTS 13's and possibly the GTS 12's just don't seem to be cutting it. There is also a good chance that my Ghost 5's aren't working out, though they seem to be fine during long runs. I also bought a pair of Brooks PureConnect 2's, they look pretty snazzy though their heel to toe drop is 3-4mm which could be a bit extreme and drastic change so I might save them for this summer.
5k - 24:40 (7:57 min/mile pace)
10k - 54:39 (8:48 min/mile pace)
15k -1:24:04 (9:01 min/mile pace)
13.1 - 1:56:38 (8:54 min/mile pace) Sub 2 hours!!!
Wow, those are colorful. I hope you like them! I've never seen any reviews on anything by Pearl Izumi.
I hope they work for you! I am also waiting for some shoes to arrive in the mail. They are my usual make and model, but I always love to get new shoes.
