No one said it would be easy…



The process of becoming a natural didn’t seem like it would be a walk…or run…in the park. I knew there would be challenges. However, I didn’t anticipate some of my most recent obstacles.  

In today’s instant gratification world, I was thinking my transition would take the suggested amount of months, but I thought I would be golden after putting in my time. However, I am coming to realize this is a constant process, just as building on my mileage is, and I was going to have to truly commit to this journey. 

When you train for a marathon, you start small, and add miles slowly to both short and long runs. You don’t just run 20 miles once on the weekend and suddenly you can do that every day. Your body can only take so much change. So when I completed my transition into my Road-X 233s, I was running comfortably in them for 3-5 miles.  As I started to up my long run mileage while preparing for Vegas, I slipped on my 233s and hit the road for a 7 miler. However, around mile 6, I noticed some soreness similar to my earlier 233 run days. Wait a minute, I transitioned! I am a 2 Arrow SHOC-ZONE natural! Feet don’t fail me now!

I walked home thinking to myself, “What did I do wrong?” It is obviously going to take time to go from 12 or even 15mm differential sneakers to zero drop…but wait…how come my 6mm drop isn’t perfected after following directions?! 

It seems that after pushing myself on mileage that my body is unaccustomed to, my Achilles, feet, legs, mind is also being tested again in lower drop shoes.  My body was used to 3-5 miles in 9mm and 6mm drops, but 7? Maybe not so much.   

I decided to try my Road-X 238s for 6 miles, and felt better. I am going to re-start the transition for my longer run days, and slowly get my body used to lower differentials with higher mileage, but I will continue on my transition journey during the week for my short runs.

Everyone is different, so maybe you aren’t experiencing this problem (I am jealous), or maybe you are running into other obstacles. What are you going through on your transition journey and what are you doing to stay on track?

  5. Overdoses are not uncommon, leading to injuries and death among both alcohol and drug abusers. You've heard about overdose deaths on a single drug, but you may not be as familiar with overdose associated with drug and alcohol combinations. The truth is there are more injuries and deaths from bad substance combinations than from single-substance overdoses. This happens often because someone already high or stoned is not making good decisions - something that is obvious since they have not made the one good decision they should make - to get into rehab.
