Happy Hump Day! (That word gives me visuals of other things...sorry!) I don't know about the rest of you but I only have one pair of running shoes! I have seen some blog posts where runners have multiple pairs of shoes in their rotation at any given time. I am thinking that I should try that but when I look at the cost of my shoes I am not sure if I want to do that.
It took me some time to find the perfect pair of shoes and I am probably not quite done yet. I went from Nike's to Mizuno's and so far so good. I have heard great things about other shoes and I really want to try the Brooks Ghost out before I make the final decision to stick with my Mizunos. I tried the Ghost's on at an expo and they were so comfortable but I know that the true test is running in them.
I usually retire my shoes around the 400 mile mark so it was time to say goodbye to my old Wave Inspires and hello to my new ones. I broke them in on a 7 mile run on the treadmill last night.
1. How many pairs of running shoes do you have in your rotation any any given time?
2. What is the rule(s) for breaking in a new pair of shoes? Do the same rules still apply if your new shoes are the same brand, style, etc as the ones you are retiring?
3. How many miles do put on your shoes before you retire them?
4. Any opinions on the Brooks Ghosts?
