Every time I buy new runners, I feel like I can win! I can do anything. I go home, put them on and shake it around the house like Lola Bunny. I feel hot, strong and that it’s time to get serious and workout!
By the way, wasn’t Space Jam just the best movie?
SO, I experienced this excellent feeling a couple of weeks ago when I bought new runners. I purchased another pair of ASICS GT 2000 because I loved the last pair I had and practically wore the soles down to nothing without having any problems with them. Remember when I told you about my change from Nike Frees/barefoot runners? The ASICS GT 2000 range just have the best support and stabilisation I’ve found for my slightly pronating feet. They’re also designed for anything up to a 21km run which is perfect for me.
I love those ones because look at the colours – hello PINK! They are last seasons (ASICS GT 2000 2) but still far lighter and less chunky than the last pair I had but with the same stability. The cushioning in them is great too. ASICS continued using their well known gel from the forefoot to the heel for extra ankle and heel support and also absorbs shock from the foot strike, reducing impact when landing.
What running shoes do you like? How do new runners make you feel?
