Compared to last year, this winter has not been the best for outdoor running. Today, I had the first chance to run outdoors in the past few weeks. I simply refuse to run outdoors when conditions are icy and frigid. And let’s be honest, no one has an enjoyable experience while running on the treadmill.
I was recently sent the Reebok ZQUICK shoes to review and I have been itching for a chance to take them out on a run. To break the shoes in I wore them twice just to walk around as I trained clients at the gym I work it. I am glad I took the time to break them in, because they did rub my back of my feet a bit as I was walking around.
By the time I took them out for today’s run they were totally comfortable. I am a running shoe snob, and it is rare for me to find perfectly comfortable shoes. The ZQuicks were super comfortable !Now, I am not a very fast runner by any means, but for my first outdoor and hilly run in over two weeks, I think I did really well!
I ran the entire run non stop! This usually never happens on a first run back after an extended break. The new shoes on top of the excitement of just being outside carried me through this run.
To learn more about the Reebok ZQUICK shoes check out this video! ZQUICK takes inspiration from Z-rated sports car tires (highest possible rating), which are rated for excessive speeds. That calls for some speedy running!
I personally love the bright color of the shoes, I usually wear all black when I run so they add a fun pop of color to my ensemble. Who says runners can’t be fashionable?
Plus, these are my first pair of shoes with a sewn in shoe tongue. I have never seen them before in a shoe design. I am a huge fan, since they are super comfortable!
Since the Z-rated technology on the sole allows for maximum contact with the ground I plan on using these shoes for a few runs as well as some HIT workouts I want to throw in to the mix.
Shoes are the most important running gear for a runner so I am happy to report that I did not notice any discomfort while I was out running 3.37miles tonight. It’s good to be out on the non icy roads. I am already gearing up for spring races!
Thanks to Reebok ZQuick shoes for helping me with a relatively speedy run back from a snowy break!
