Mezamashii Project and a new addiction

Oh Happy Day!
This arrived in the mail:

Mizuno Wave Rider 15

They are so pretty!  I tried them just for a couple of miles so too soon to have an opinion but I can say those are much better for me than the Nirvana 8 were.  This is a good fit for me.  Now I just need to know if they will be good for me and how they compare to my Ghost 4.

This week I did all my runs at the gym.  This is not ideal but better than no run.  Yesterday I did not have a pain free run, it was 4 miles and even though I was able to keep a decent pace I did have some pain in the end.  Today I did just 3 miles. I did not want to rest today because tomorrow is rest day since I have a 10k race on Saturday.  I ran 1 mile-walk 2 min cycles.  It went OK.

I am a little nervous about my race but I am putting zero pressure on myself.  All I want to do is keep the shorter steps the whole race and have negative splits for the two 5Ks.  The start is at 7:30 am so I am hoping it won't be too hot...!

Now confession time
I have a new addiction.
If you guess it first, you get an extra entree for my next giveaway.

It is not an expensive addiction.
It is not something I eat or drink.
It is keeping up way too late.
It is preventing me from reading books.

The shoes are beautiful! I really like my Ascend trail running shoes, too--too bad I can't yet try them out on a real trail. Here's to pain free, soon, for both of us!
