Weather: Stunt run!

Once again, good thing I’ve been liking it!

Todays run was cold, again. No surprise there, but as I noticed my left toes again being cold, I thought about it a bit more. Lots of time for that with a daily run.

I think part of the reason my runs are overall staying of short duration, is that with the reduced feeling in my toes (due to frostbite damage last year) I get less warning about real damage. Because of this, I cut it earlier than I might.

Or maybe I’m just a bit gun-shy after having some frostbite

Training Tip: Track shoe usage and replace when necessary

Obviously, this will be a bit different between different brands, and different shoes.

I use my running spreadsheet to track my runs, and my shoes (free version here)

Strava also offers the service, as does Garmin Connect.

Once my shoes get around 500km, I start looking carefully at the cushion showing on the edge of the soles. I’ll also start examining the sole for damage. When either shows, or the shoe starts just feeling too much like a sock, I get some new ones, and TRY to throw the old ones away.
