These performance shoes are fast enough to be the go-to racing choice for many elite runners. They’re minimalistic and perfect for up-tempo runners with an efficient stride. They even feel fine without socks. Light and flexible, the T7 is a perfect update to the beloved T6.Granted, I am not an elite runner but I do have an efficient stride. I didn't feel any pain during my 6 miles, but to be safe, I ran on the grass as much as possible. I felt like I was flying! I didn't wear the Garmin so I don't know if I was actually running faster or if I just felt lighter.
Can shoes have a placebo effect?
I realize it isn't smart to jump from a supportive shoe to a minimal shoe overnight. I am going to be patient and try not to run in these new shoes for every run -- but it will be hard. They felt so great, it will be a challenge to slip on the heavier, clunkier shoes now. I might try them on the treadmill tonight for a tempo run. I'm like a kid with a new toy, I can't help myself!
After my run last night, I showered and decided to play with my new hair. I was excited to find that I can still wear it wavy! I need versatile hair or boredom strikes.
I put on some comfy clothes and went to see a late movie with some work friends -- Horrible Bosses. I don't usually spend money on mainstream movies, but this movie was calling my name. I probably have one of the best (or worst) horrible boss experiences. I could go into detail but I'd rather not re-live it. I think I have PTSD. Maybe my ex-workplace should pay for therapy, eh?
