I am working on befriending my new road shoes … it has been our third run together now.
It hasn’t been a smooth tide so far. Finally after testing another pair of socks I think I figured it out. It was at a point mid run when I thought I had gotten plantar fasciitis or something else was burning my soles. Maybe a tiny devil was hiding in the shoes holding a flame thrower towards my soles?
Anyhow … I ripped off my shoes and realized they were super hot and my socks wet. I took apart the shoes and realized that the soles are not the usual inov8 type of soles, but different material. As soon as I took them out my feet were able to breathe again and the devil had disappeared.
I also met my new running buddy:
We agreed on the same pace.
