5 miles this morning burning off some steam. Plus a strength training…lots of squats and upper body. It felt good to get it in although I’m a bit sore as I type.
Yep yep…loving that quote.
I also got to test out some new shoes…your girl is rocking the Brooks now! I bought these last week from Luke’s Locker and have been testing them ever since. So I thought I’d give you a mini shoe review.
I have to tell you I have always been an Asics girl at heart. Since I started distance running about 6 years ago…that’s really all I have ever worn for training and racing. They are the tried and true. I’ve also tried some of the other trendy brands like Hokas and Newtons. Both serve a different purpose and overall I think they’re all very well made. I’ve always avoided wearing Brooks for whatever reason until I found Defyance! I tried them on at the store and I loved the look and feel of these shoes. Plus I think you get a bang for your buck as these shoes were in the $70 range (on sale). Most of the running shoes I purchase are usually well over 100 bucks…and I do not mind paying for quality and a good investment…but still I loved the bargain. This shoe overall is for a neutral foot and I think is best worn as a daily trainer. I have not yet tested it out on 20 mile runs or anything like that but I can say they are great for your daily runs. They have such a light feel to them that I think they would also serve a purpose as a racing shoe. I think Brooks has been around a long time and they are strictly a brand for running shoes. So if you are a runner and looking into trying something different…definitely check this one out!
I will always and forever love my Asics but I have to say it has been fun experimenting with different shoes.
You can purchase them online or at any specialty running store.
What are your favorite running shoes right now?
