Taper

Thirteen more days until race day.  Taper starts this week, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.  My right instep and achilles have been giving me some problems during the last few runs, with intermittent soreness.  Luckily I’ve figured out that it was due to one of my running shoes.  I’ve been running in neutral cushioning shoes for my easy and long runs, while I’ve reserved the racing stability shoes for my speedwork sessions.  I suspect it was the neutral cushioning shoes that have been causing the problems due to the lack of medial support; and as a test, I ran yesterday’s long run in the racing stability shoes without any pain.  I guess I’ll have to go back to stability shoes from now on for my regular runs.  

Currently I have my eyes on these NB 769s (2009 model).
