My family gave me new running shoes for Christmas. I had the Adidas Ultra Boost 17 and I loved them. I am a casual runner and I run pretty much when I have the will and the time. I do not overstress if I run, but I like to do it as much as I can. My oldest son (12) is into running now so we run together at least twice per week. We run from 3 to 5 miles and yes, he is faster than me but is ok, I am proud of him and his newfound love for running.
I broke the shoes today!. I did a quick 3 mile run in the treadmill. Here is the workout, in case you want to follow up. It was good, quick and easy and completed the goal of 3 miles.
