Weekend stuff

Pretty good weekend here. Had a really good swim on Friday night. Learn something every time and with any luck some day I will be able to put it all together and be able to do it with out thinking about things so much. I am seeing some improvement, but oh so far to go yet!

Sunday went to a talk at Fleet Feet and learned some great things about running shoes and fit. Very impressed with the time and effort they put into fitting everyone for shoes as opposed to the other running store I had been to. And got fitted for and purchased a new pair of shoes.
Nike Air Zoom Vomero 2+

Went for a 4 mile run/walk after I got them. My youngest son (12) has expressed some interest in running so he went with me. A little more walking then running, but on the whole I think I'm really going to like these shoes. I also got the Superfeet orthotic inserts. Considering the little amount I've run recently I felt pretty darn good after the 4 miles. My knees felt pretty good and I had been having some problems with my patellar tendon and that felt really good too. No pain at all the next day. So very good. There was a little pain on the bottom of my left foot. Maybe some different socks. So I will try them a few more times and make the determination on if they are the ones.

Plans for the week include a 2 mile, 3 mile, and 5 mile run. Swimming on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday and our first run clinic after our swim on Sunday. Pretty excited about that. Can't wait to start getting some pointers on running. I've met some really nice people so far at CWW. I'm really enjoying it. It's going to be an amazing year! I need to decide for sure what races I want to do. I plan to do several of the rehearsals but not to many actual races, just because of money mostly. My plan right now is for one Sprint (Tri for the Cure) and one Olympic distance. Only problem is they are both within a couple of weeks. But the Tri for the Cure will mostly be for fun.

I have found the same thing to be true here. The Fleet Feet near me does a great job taking time, fitting, and explaining. Glad you're liking CWW. That sounds like a solid training week. Enjoy!

Those are some nice looking shoes.

Keep up with the plan, it looks good. A lot of good solid running for your Oly.

Where is the biking?

Thanks for stopping by and saying hi!
