|Nike Free Run|
I did a 10.2 mile run in them on Sunday and felt wonderful. I typically don't do such a long run for an introductory run in a new pair of shoes but I couldn't resist giving them a try. I definitely felt as if I was striking less on my heels but I always worry that my perception of form could be wrong. I am going to have to arrange for some photo taking during another run to really assess my gait and heel strike.
I ran 3.14 miles yesterday in the Brooks and was equally satisfied. They are comfortable and once again, I felt I was striking less on my heels.
What is different for me right now? My quads are sore after my run on Sunday. Typically I feel little to no soreness in my quads as any aches tend to be in my glutes or upper hamstrings. However, I do know that every time I start training in a new running shoe my body does go through an adjustment period. Only time will tell which shoe becomes the perfect running shoe for me!
P.S. I ended falling in love with this shoe and ran my first marathon in it!
