Not sure what effort to classify today’s run…beautiful running weather, but ugly running.
New Balance 1012 + Aetrex inserts = pain in shins and overall uncomfortable run:
1.02 mi (9:06/mi avg pace)
Went home, replaced Aetrex inserts with “stock” inserts that came with shoes:
3.03 mi (10:54/mi avg pace)
Long story short, shoes are going back. Giving inserts a try in shoes I wear to work though, as they felt good walking in them.
It has been a year since purchasing my Brooks Adrenaline GTS 9 and my foot was starting to hurt while running, so I went to the New Balance store in Alpharetta/Norcross this Saturday and got refitted for shoes (similar to Big Peach Running Co “Fit Process”).
After trying on several shoes and going for quick jogs around the store and along the sidewalk outside, I ended up with the New Balance MR1012 Running Shoe. It is a model on the higher end of motion control. I am also going to try some Aetrex inserts to better help my lack of arches.
We’ll see how it goes tomorrow when I go for a run for them the first time.
It appears that RunKeeper Free users no longer get to edit their routes on the RunKeeper website when the app decides to flip out and not realize you’ve turned on an out-and-back section of your run. There used to be (and it is still referenced in the FAQ) a “EDIT ROUTE” button on the map where you could adjust it.
Well, in Firefox I ran Firebug, found the button’s code which was set to “display:hidden”, changed it to “display:block” and clicked it. The feature is still fully there, functional, and allowed me to save my edits. I am wondering if this is just a mixup on their end as they are debugging something, or if they are truly taking this option away from users.
It was present this past Thursday, as I used it then. It did not appear as an option on that run’s map now though, so they either were working on their site, or they have attempted to disable it for their Free users.
Hopefully this is just a glitch and it will return to normal by my next run. Otherwise, I’ll look at other free apps or be forced to consider purchasing the Pro version.
