It has been a little over a month since I got my shoe fit, so I wanted to give you a quick update on how I’m feeling about my Brooks Ghost 6’s.
In general, I am enjoying running in them. However, sometimes I think the size feels a little big — especially when I first put them on — and I occasionally struggle to tie them right to fit comfortably on the first try. After a couple re-ties they feel good though. The sizing thing seems day to day. Once I get running, I don’t really seem to notice…so maybe it’s ok!
I think I’m also still getting used to the difference between them and the Ravenna. I have been alternating between the two pairs for the last six weeks. Ravennas have been my running shoe for 3 years, so maybe running in a less supported shoe could take a little bit to get used to. What do you think?
This weekend I will be trying them out for my long run (18 miles!), so I’ll have a better idea about how I would like them for running the marathon.
If I’m still unsure after this weekend, I’ll probably buy a second pair of shoes for the marathon because my old shoes are really getting worn. I think they have close to 450 miles on them!
Have you always stuck with the same brand/style shoes? Or do you switch it up?
What are your weekend plans? nothing major here besides my long run. I’m kind of looking forward to having a quiet weekend.
