My husband had to have a dog! So, around Christmas he found himself a dog. The dog is very hyper and runs around like a crazy person. Hubby insists this is because he is a “puppy”. He’s not a puppy because he over a year old (at least in my book).
Anyway, hubby insisted that the dog had to stay inside with him while he took a nap. So, he took a nap while the dog wandered around our bedroom chewing up things. He not only took a bite out of my running shoes, he chewed up two other of my shoes, my feather duster and assorted other papers.
Well, at least he didn’t chew up my entire shoe and just took a bite out of it. The sad thing was I didn’t notice I was putting it on before a run.
So, I do really like these shoes. They are New Balance 790v2. They are very light weight and they have a nice cushion. I don’t have another pair of these shoes, so I was a little unhappy I had to take these off and find another pair to run in. I ended up my old New Balance 780, which are heavier and not as cushioned. So I was a little unhappy, but guess who is getting new shoes?
Still running 3 days a week…keeping at about 20-21 miles a week.
July 14 – Ran 5.24 miles. Nice and hot like usual….87 degrees
July 16 – Ran 5.57 miles. Same…87 degrees
July 19 – Long run day. Got out early…4:55am and it was overcast and was suppose to rain (it didn’t) It was 78 degrees, with about 80% humidity. So the 78 degrees felt like 90. It was so humid and I was soaking wet when I got home. So, wet that I sat down and left a puddle! I have not ever been that soaking wet after a run before. It is not too humid in AZ, so I considered this run great training to run in FL where it does get really humid. Did manage to go 10.5 miles. I did have to take a nap after the run, but I made it!
