So as you may or may not know, I am exhausted and in a little bit of a runner’s slump. However, the great thing about our sport is that one single “good” run can bring us right back!
I already discussed about how I am focusing on eating better and trying to get more sleep to help me through this rough patch, but I was kinda stuck at that. I wasn’t sure what else I could do to boost my spirits.
Welp, sometimes the running God’s shine down upon us. I have a re-occuring event in my Outlook calendar for every 5 months to check the mileage on my shoes to see if they need to be “retired”. That reminder popped up yesterday morning!
So I headed over Garmin Connect and tallied up my mileage for my current Nike Vomero+ 4′s. It turns out that I have around 650 miles on them! Whoops! That’s way past the recommended 500 mile limit.
Fortunatly, whenever Foot Locker has 20% coupons I buy a pair. Even if I don’t currently need them, I like to stock up. This saves me money in the long run as I am always buying shoes at a discount. Plus, it’s not like I won’t eventually need em, right? So in my stash I currently have two pairs of Nike Vomero+ 5′s (photos below).
The thought of strapping on new shoes and having a proverbial “fresh start” has really boosted my spirits. I am really looking forward to tearing up some concrete this weekend!
The real question is: Red or Blue?
