Today was a scheduled Cross Training Day (XD). Yesterday I got hit with some serious Flu-like symptoms and it carried on through today. My fever broke and I am able to hold down some food so I got that going for me.
I run with Asics Cumulus 11 Running Shoes. They have been very good to me and my joints. I am estimating that I have about 200 or so miles on them and they are getting close to being replaced. Well, those suckers are like $129 and before I dropped the cash I wanted to see what the market was for some quality inserts to extend the life on my shoes. So I checked around on some message boards and heard of a little product called Archmolds.
These inserts are a little different from your garden variety inserts. They are heat-molded! You stick them into the oven for 2 minutes and then take a step and they form to your feet. I have been running with these for about a week now and I absolutely love them. It is one of those where-have-you-been-my-entire-life products. During my runs I fill like I am running on little pillows and afterwards my knees and legs fill like I did not even run. I have even been taking the inserts out of my Asics and putting them in all my other shoes. These things are great!
Tomorrow is supposed to be my normal rest day but since I missed today then I will get my swimming in tomorrow, assuming I can physically do that!
