On the long and often interrupted journey back to some sort of fitness level.... I'm trying some new running shoes. Newtons.

These are listed as minimal shoes, which is kind of weird cause they are super duper cush. Anyways, the heel is lower and the ball area has more cushion. Which is hopefully going to work for me.

I have a fairly forward strike, which is supposed to be good for my knees, but is awful for my big toe and the ball of my foot. I got no natural padding. Skinny white women feet. Well at least the feet are skinny.

Anyways, they say to start slow to adjust. This is kind of timely as I'm starting slow to adjust back into movement in general.

First day run, alternating 5 minutes of easy pace running 5.5-6pmh with 5 minutes of walking. Felt a little weird and significantly less stable. Had to really think about using my feet. But otherwise pretty good.
