New Brooks Adrenaline GTS9 Running shoes

Monday, June 15th, 2009

I went to my local running store, The Running Company yesterday to get fitted for some new shoes.

The gentleman that helped me out had me first run in a pair of Nike Pegasus shoes on the treadmill. He video taped me and we went over the tape in slow motion. We found that I had a pretty bad pronation problem on my right foot, and not quite as bad on my left. He had me try on three different shoes on the treadmill and I settled on the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 9.

I ran about 2.7 miles in them yesterday and about 3.3 in them tonight. The pain on Sunday wasn’t bad, but it was back in full force tonight. And it was really humid tonight, but that didn’t have anything to do with the pain. I guess I need more ice and Advil and compression and not running so far.
