About six months ago, give or take, I broke our treadmill from running too hard. Considered sabotage at first; regular use, accompanied by serious noise and minor earthquake factor was prolly annoying for those whom I live with. After taking the thing apart and remembering some sounds from when it functioned, I decided that was not the case. The broken rear rollbar/parts can’t be replaced, my old indoor basketball shoes are no good outdoors, and I’m not a fan of public gyms, so I haven’t ran since, but I’ve been regularly active.
Today I bought a pair of all terrain Nike Trail Running shoes; good for the track or streets, and kinda cleated for z trails. The curved bottom in the front of the shoe really keeps you on your toes and the thick cushiony sole made me feel light on my feet as I broke in these kicks for the first time. I took these sweet shoes and new i-Phone arm band for a run on the trails through some semi-local hills. I think it would have been best to have waited longer than about 30 minutes after eating. I felt nauseous after the first mile and a half, but I was motivated to keep going after a group of girls who I think were soccer players passed me. The view for as long as I could keep up was as nice as the view in the video below. Thanks to the ladies for guiding me to Lizard Rock.
