Here’s how last week’s training went:
- Monday: rest
- Tuesday: Speed Intervals – 1:2 x 10
- Wednesday: Easy
- Thursday: rest
- Friday: Hills!
- Saturday: 18-mile Long Run
- Sunday: 10k Recovery Run at Race pace
I wore the new Newton Distance IV for my long run and they felt pretty good. I noticed that I’m still grabbing for my PureFlow 2s as a first choice though. They can’t possibly have much life left – at last check they had almost 500 miles! Oh, what to do, what to do…

Great week!! No, those shoes really can’t have too much life left. Sadly, you are going to need to choose a new favorite.
I noticed yesterday that the arch in the left foot is starting to hurt so yeah, you’re definitely right… So sad :(
So far I really like my Newtons. So much I also bought the Gravity (I have the Aha).
Looks like you’re doing great!
Thanks! I’m glad you like the Newtons! I have (and like) the Distance U, Fate, and now the Distance IV.
I haven’t tried Altras tho, I’m curious about them. And Hokas . . .
I bought a pair of Altras (Intuition 1.5) on a whim (big shocker right?!) and hated them. I felt like I had clown shoes on. And the last time I was at my LRS I tried on a pair of Hoka Cliftons. I didn’t like them at all, thought I didn’t hate them as much as the Altras. If you do try the Hokas definitely size down – my normal size was HUGE in them.
Not really planning to buy anything right now but turns out I’m just $9 away from a $25 certificate at Fleetfeet.
