For those who didn't see my post yesterday, I bought new shoes on Wednesday, the Mizuno Enigma. I've tried wearing them and I'm not sure I like these :( There's plenty of cushion in the shoe itself, but it's way too snug across the top of my foot, to the point where my toes would start to tingle, and there's pressure on my toes The left shoe is fine, I didn't have a problem with that one, but all of this was happening in the right shoe. I wore them on and off at work yesterday, and my foot was more comfortable in my heels! I'm wearing them today and will make a decision about whether to return them. I bought them in the box so I have the option of taking them back before heading home.
Fairytales and Fitness suggested the Riders, which the store I went to didn't have. There is another store in Boulder that I'll head to after I return these shoes and see if they have Riders I could try, along with the next NB 860.
I went to the store during the week so I could have shoes ready for the weekend, because guess what? I have the itch again to run, and what better way to kick off July then to start it with a run. I'll still head to the gym, in my old New Balance 860s, then drive up to Boulder. Good thing the towns aren't that far apart.
My car is in desperate need for a bath, and there's a good car wash in Boulder too. I have bugs on my windshield from my drive up the mountains, the car is dusty, and needs a vacuum. This place takes care of all of that, and it's not far from Boulder Running Company. I can get the car washed first, then head to the store. I'm trying not to fill up my weekend, but I need to get things done, and I'm doing a couple things on Sunday too. After a 4-day weekend last week, I only have two days to get all this done!
