This awesome box arrived the other day!
Of course, I just happened to be sick with an awful cold/sinus infection when the shoes arrived, so all I could do was stare at them.
Then we had a snow day yesterday, which doubled as another “sick day” for me.
Since I still wasn’t feeling well, I decided to take things easy in the morning. And by easy, I mean an hour of Body Pump and shoveling my parent’s driveway.
I needed an hour long nap to recover.
When I woke up I decided to try a short “easy run.” This type of run would be the perfect to try out the Saucony Virratas. The Virrata is Saucony’s new zero drop, lightweight, flexible running shoe. Since I don’t normally train in zero drop shoes, I didn’t want to run too many miles and cause an injury.
2 miles, 16:34, 8;17 pace (not bad for being sick!)
Since I wasn’t coughing uncontrollably, I decided to run another mile and make it 3 miles total. That, and my guilty pleasure, “Pretty Little Liars” still had 10 minutes or so left in the episode I was watching.
The 3 mile run ended with my head pounding, teeth hurting, and some coughing, BUT, I really liked the shoes!
More to come on the Saucony Virratas as they rack up the miles…
- Have you ever tried zero drop shoes?…yes!
- Do you have a TV guilty pleasure…Pretty Little Liars and The Bachelor
