So about a month ago, I decided that my Asics (GT-2000) felt clunky. I've never really liked the shoe since they changed it from the 2100 series. I went to Fleet Feet to see what they could recommend. I ended up with Newton Kismets and a month in, I think I hate them. The first few weeks I was just adjusting to the feel of the forefoot and ran the Tuna Run in them (25 miles in less than 36 hours). I have been trying to adjust but my heel has been increasingly sore and now the soreness is moving up to my Achilles. I think I am done.
Today was 6.25 miles, easy 8:36 pace. I went without music which was a nice change but was obsessing over my AT the whole time. I intended to run 8 but cut it back since I was in a good amount of discomfort. I guess tomorrow will be a yoga day!
