Breaking in the long distance shoes

After picking up the Landyachts board last night, to my surprise, it came with a set of Vault wheels, pick n mix bearings and Trucks! Complete bargain for 40 bucks. I’m pretty sure the kid I bought it off at 10:30pm last night simply couldn’t be bothered to remove the hardware… oh the joys of lazy teenagers!

So today I did my first few KM in order to ease into training and break in the new Merrell All Out Blaze trail running shoes. They feel great around the toes but my right foot (balancing – I’m goofy) seemed to be taking the majority of weight on the arch which is not comfortable by any means. Arch support is critical but this is a case of over-engineering maybe.

Biggest problem is the soles though. 10km done, 2mm gone from my breaking foot! at that rate I’ll be through the soles within the first week so i’m going to have to fashion up some stick on soles out of old tyres and start the journey off club foot.
