I have been on a hunt for some good Running Shoes. I had recently posted a Review (and currently have a Giveaway) for the Fit Moms For Life Book and found it to be an absolute favorite compared to any Fitness Article or Book I have read. I set up a regime for me at the Gym and started last week. I had been doing mostly Cardio-ellipticals and Treadmill, but not very intense exercising because I really didn't know what I was doing! I now to Strength Training and Cardio Bursts. That still requires a Treadmill, but a faster run and higher intensity that I was not used to. Day 1 and I had swollen ankles (don't have ankle issues so not sure why they swelled) and I was too sore to walk very far for days. About 4 days later, did it again (thought maybe I'd focus on how I ran and try not to land too hard) and I had swollen ankles. So, finally I decided it has to be the SHOES! These $19.99 specials just aren't cutting in and did some research and asked friends for recommendations. I had it narrowed between some NIKE and Adidas Shoes. It was the Adidas Shoe Finder that helped me narrow down my results. It said the Sequence and Tempos were right for me. I found a pair I loved on Amazon and they were on sale PLUS free shipping! Here they are:
adidas SuperNova Sequence 3 Running Shoe
I am in heaven! I can feel the extra support where Shoe Finder said I needed it instantly. I have no issues running. It is like magic (OK, logic really!) and the only negative thing I have to say is I wish I found these sooner! It actually feels good to move in these. Not saying that as in it makes moving or running feel better, but it actually feels good to walk around. I want to walk and run with these on. I have never payed attention to my feet and what support I may need and I could not stop pacing when I put them on.
I have to say that I encourage EVERYONE, whether you run or not to take the Shoe Finder test and find the shoe for you! You will wish you had done it a long time ago. I bought these for a BDay gift for me. I never know what I want and now I can say that if you are like me and you are asked what you want, remember the Shoe Finder and find your shoe, pick the style you want and search for a good deal.
This review is my own and I was not compensated in any way by any Adidas or Amazon. I did recieve a Fit Moms For Life Copy for a previous review I did and have mentioned in this post.
