I'm breaking in a new pair of shoes. I ran with Asics Gel Kayano XII. I bought these about a month or two ago and am planning to wear these for the Houston Marathon. The 12 feels much roomier than the 11's that I'm currently wearing. Perhaps the cold weather shrunk my feet so much that it just feels larger. It did feel lighter but the shoe didn't seem to fit like a glove. That's how my 11's felt the first time I wore them. Again, it could have been the cold weather making everything stiffer. Overall, it felt good. (Maybe I should have bought size 10-1/2 instead of size 11.)
4.4 miles: 37:11
I'm looking forward to next Saturday's Sunmart. I think I'm ready. I just need to stay away from common colds and twisted ankles. I guess that means I won't be wearing heels anytime soon.
