This week is National Women's Health Week. In observance of this occasion, I'd like to give a fitness update.
I've been increasing my running mileage in the past few weeks. Going futher distances can result in a higher risk of injury or pain. One way to prevent these issues is to wear good running shoes.
I haven't exactly been abiding by this rule. I have two pair of shoes that I've been splitting my time between:
One pair is 4 years old, and the other is 2 years old.
I am well aware that both of these have surpassed the suggested mileage limit.
Therefore, the thought of needing new shoes has crossed my mind a couple of times. I did some on-line shopping for running shoes, but I didn't see any good deals.
In case you didn't notice in the pictures above, I have a set brand of running shoes that I'm happy with and prefer to stick with unless this brand starts giving me problems.
By some miracle, Austin and I were shopping on Saturday and came across these beauties for only $31 at Marshall's. They were exactly my size!
This is my fourth pair of shoes from Saucony! I have happy feet again! :)
How long do you wear a pair of shoes before you replace them?
As you can see, I keep the same pair of shoes for years and years! I try to take really good care of my shoes and will wear them until they start looking raggedy or causing me pain. I always wear an older pair when I'm outside in the rain or mud.
