So, I made my goal last week of running at least three times, with runs between 2.5-3 miles. I am happy to report that I reached my goal, with a weekly mileage of 10. I am going to shoot for 12 this week. In anticipation of this fall’s two half marathons, I am just going to work on increasing my distance and endurance. I don’t plan to do any speed work at this point, since I know the speed will pick up with the more miles I run anyway.It was really humid for my runs this past week and on Saturday (90%!)–good prep for the summer season. You know summer is approaching when the carpet always feels damp! 😉
I had the opportunity to try out the Dr. Scholl’s Active Series insoles in my new Hokas, and I LOVE them! To be truthful, I wasn’t expecting to feel that much of a difference, but I definitely did! The Active Series sports triple zone protection to cushion the ball of your foot, your heel, and your arch. They were super comfy, and I will definitely continue to use them.
The insoles come in two sizes for women 5.5-8 and 8.5 to 11 (they retail for around $24.99). They can help to reduce shock up to 40%! You can also find a coupon for $4 off on their webpage HERE. Dr. Scholl’s is also allowing me to giveaway a pair to one of my readers! See the Rafflecopter widget below to enter!
