On my three mile run last night, my hips, knees and shins were all feeling the full effects of the pounding on the sidewalk. I got home and was pretty sure I needed new running shoes since I bought my current pair back in June.
I’m not as diligent as I should be about tracking the miles on my shoes. So when I went back and looked through old posts and MapMyRun training logs, I realized I only have about 160 miles on my current pair. (Assuming I blogged or mapped out the majority of my runs)
So maybe it was just an off day for me running wise.
But since I was on Amazon browsing discounts on my Mizunos, I happened to stumble across the Mizuno Wave Inspire 6, which is being released Nov. 9, in a pink and white color scheme.
Yea I’m pretty pumped. I think it would be awesome to have pink and white running shoes. I run in the Wave Inspire 5 now, but I’ve never had problems when Mizuno’s made updates to their basic Wave Inspire. I’ve also run in the 3 and 4 and loved them too.
But because an update is coming out so soon and there was exactly one pair of the fives left in my size on Amazon, I’ll probably have to go to the store and actually shell out the additional cash for a pair there. I don’t want to order the 6 online and then have to ship it back because I don’t like the new style and end up having to go the running store anyway.
I’m going to keep monitoring my current shoes and see how I’m feeling after runs in them. If I continue to have issues, I’ll just get the new pair and assume I miscounted my miles.
