Lacing 3

I went out for a quick run this morning.  Friday’s aren’t a regularly scheduled running day in prep for the longer day on Saturday.  6 miles with heat, hills, and  humidity….can’t wait!!  (that’s tomorrow, NOT my quick one for today!)

I took back my Brooks Ghosts because my toes were falling asleep.  I walked out with a pair of the new Nike Pegasus.  I am not really sure why, but I am not excited about this shoes.  I don’t really want them to work out and I can’t really pinpoint why.  It was a really short day today, but Bailey (my running partner, the dog) really wanted to go, and I wanted to give the shoes a little test drive before tomorrow’s longer run.

I think my toes are still going to go numb with these too.  Might be a little early to tell, but I think I’m going to experiment with changing the lacing.

I found this blog that explains some of the different techniques.  Katie Runs This.

Have you changed your lacing technique?  Why and how has it worked for you?  What is your favorite technique?

    I had to re-read that opening paragraph! I was like, 6 miles is a short run! WOW! I haven’t messed with my shoes at all and I’m worried that if I do I”ll be in trouble.

    I haven’t tried lacing my shoes differently but I have seen this technique around. If you try it out, please let us know how it works!
    For now, my shoes are just tied the normal boring way. :)
