I’ve been interval training at least 3 days a week and recently started suffering from what I believe to be shin splits. I figured it might be time to buy new running shoes. Of course I turn to my reliable and beloved Nike. Lucky for me I work across the street from Niketown in NYC. I picked up these gems today and can’t wait to run in them tomorrow! Gotta put the tailwinds to the test. Fingers crossed my shins heal quickly because I refuse to take time off and lose progress. The good think about Nike is they give you 30 days to wear them and try them out and you can exchange them if they aren’t a good fit.

Update to the tailwinds. They weren’t for me. I love Nike, and am in love with my Nike Frees which I have been lifting in for over a year. However, these shoes felt like I was running on cardboard. I returned them and went to a running specialty store in the Upper East Side. They watched me run where I learned that I have pronation. They fitted me in a pair of Mizunos. Today was run number two in them and I am so happy! They took breaking in, the first run was a little under expectations but today’s run was wonderful! They are extremely comfortable, and though not as fun looking as the tailwinds, better for my interval training and the stress I put on my legs during the process. Here’s to happy feet and happy running!
