*Disclaimer: I was sent a pair of Mizuno Wave Rider 23 as a part of a campaign with Find Your Influence. All opinions expressed here are my own.
We’ve all been stuck at home in New Hampshire with the Stay Home order in effect. In order not to go stir crazy and to keep some sense of normalcy in life I have continued running throughout this time. For me this means many runs on my treadmill and many runs from my house.
Since I can only vary my route so much from my house as the routes are limited to a few different loops and out and backs or time on the treadmill I’ve got to keep things interesting.
Here are some ways that I have been keeping running from home interesting:
- Try a Fartlek Run.
- Do hill repeats.
- Run a timed 5K
- Run the loops in different directions.
- Listen to Music on the run.
- Listen to podcasts
- Try a social distance run-run with a friend but keep your distance.
- Watch a movie (on the treadmill)
- Take a break from running and do a body weight circuit instead-To include exercises such as crunches, planks, lunges etc.)
A great shoe for running from home is the Mizuno Wave Rider 23. This shoe is awesome because it hugs my narrow foot and has just the right amount of arch. The toe box is not boxy and the instep is high enough that it does not bother my high instep. They do feel a little stiff upon first wearing but break in easily.
The pair I received for review are black with a white sole and blue stitching around the signature Mizuno logo. I love the cushion in this shoe which is a signature of the Mizuno Wave cushioning technology. This shoe has a lightweight and breathable upper.The Mizuno Wave Rider 23 has a 12mm drop. The midsole offers shock reduction and makes the shoe very durable. The outsole of the shoe is made from a durable carbon rubber. The Mizuno Wave Rider 23 offers great comfort and will be perfect for running from home and at home on the treadmill.
