A few of the runner bloggers that I read like the PureFlow 2, but they felt so weird on my feet. The heel drop was so pronounced and I didn't like it. It would take a long time to get used to it and I might not like it anyway. So I tried on Brooks Ghost, which is still a neutral cushion shoe, but not as cushiony as the Glycerin.

I think I have found the shoe I like and if I am going to get a 2nd pair I will probably stick with the Glycerin. The owner of the shoe store said I am on the verge of fast. So, I guess I need to push a little harder. This week I am going to try running 7.8 mph (instead of 7.5 mph) on the treadmill and see if I can do a 5K at that speed. I think I have 2 weeks before I need to start the actual half marathon training.
30 minutes--weights--squats, lunges, sumo squat, calf raises, leg extension, hamstring curl.
