I <3 Mizuno

As I said yesterday, I was off to Medved to get some new running shoes.

And did I find some running shoes!

I present to you, my new Mizuno Wave Precision 12s.

Dun-duh-duh-dahhhh! {superhero music}

Aren’t they awesome! I l.o.v.e. the colors!

I sent a picture to my dad and his response… “Okay?? How much did they cost?”

HA! Typical Dad.

He just doesn’t get it!

Nor would my mom.

Duh.

Like I said, I wanted to go with something a bit more lightweight than my Wave Riders.  I spoke with the salesman [who, by the way, was also awesome and so knowledgeable] and told him what I was looking for.  He then took a look at my foot, asked a few questions about where I typically run, and he brought out a few ultralightweight shoes with enough support for the hard surfaces (outside/pavement) I typically run on.

The other shoes fit great, but the Mizunos feel so good.

It’s a match made in heaven.

Right after I purchased them, I went straight to the gym to test them out with a little HIIT treadmill workout a la Hillary.

HIIT Treadmill Workout 
(4 miles – 32 minutes)
5 minutes @ 7.2 mph
1 min @ 7.2 // 1 min @ 8.2 – repeat
1 min @ 7.4 // 1 min @ 8.4 – repeat
1 min @ 7.0 // 1 min @ 9.0 – repeat
1 min @ 7.4 // 1 min @ 8.4 – repeat
1 min @ 7.2 // 1 min @ 8.2 – repeat
Finish 4th mile @ 7.5

Remember, you can follow all my running workouts at Daily Mile.

I followed that up with a few squats, deadlifts, and lunges.  Felt amazing.  They are so nice and light. YAY!

Okay, that’s enough pictures of my shoes.

Okay, okay. Last one I promise! So sexy {the shoes, not my legs! ha!}.

See you on the track!
