Requirement + Experiment + Asics SuperBlast Evaluation


Scrumptious pre-run toast.  I’m experimenting with getting a little bit of fats in earlier than my runs with some peanut butter to see if it nonetheless upsets my abdomen or not.  Felt nice yesterday!

8.1 miles @ 8:11 tempo with Jo and Lauren.  We’re totally having fun with operating increasingly within the mild every day.

Essentially the most detailed fairy backyard I’ve seen on a run up to now.

He requires dinner meals for breakfast as of late.

She was fairly enthusiastic about her new dance sneakers.

After which we spent the evening at my dad and mom’ home with household.


After my plantar fasciitis in 2021, I used to be cautious about what sneakers I’d put on to maintain it from flaring up once more.  I attempted out the Asics NOVABLAST and fell in love with them (my evaluation is HERE).  I ran a bit faster in them and fully averted any plantar ache.  I actually love these sneakers, so once I noticed a buddy sporting the SUPERBLAST just a few weeks in the past, I knew I needed to strive them.

My first run in them was a 16 miler, and from begin to end, I had nothing however constructive ideas about them and have in each run since too.

These sneakers should not have a carbon plate, however the foam is enjoyable.  It isn’t like the froth on Hoka Cliftons, the place you are feeling like you will have a pillow underneath your toes (which is so wanted for me some days), though it’s slightly extra agency however provides you a bounce.  I really feel slightly like I’m springing, form of like a trampoline.

I feel they appear smooth.  I’ll admit it, I really like handsome sneakers.

I used to be interested by how these sneakers assist me to land on my midfoot.  If you wish to work on heel placing (touchdown in entrance of your knee together with your heel… nothing incorrect with heel placing whether it is under your physique), strive these out.  They get you to land mid-foot.

They’re much lighter than you’d count on when taking a look at them—> 8.4 ounces.

The shoelaces keep tied very simply… which isn’t the case for a lot of sneakers I’ve tried previously.

The higher of the shoe could be very breathable and never too stiff (ever had a shoe that it felt just like the higher received’t bend together with your foot, which drives me loopy, and fortuitously, these don’t do this).

If you wish to be taller, strive these ha.  I feel they added two inches for me (in actuality, 45.5mm).

I’ve tried minimalist sneakers over time, however they aren’t for me.  I personally love quite a lot of foam on my sneakers and a strong shoe as a result of I really feel prefer it absorbs among the affect with every step, serving to me to keep away from some soreness and a few accidents.

They’re a impartial shoe, however the quantity of help in them make my foot really feel in place with every step, it’s not shifting throughout within the shoe.

I’ll maintain you up to date on what number of I can get out of them… I really feel it will likely be loads as a result of the cushioning nonetheless feels new to me.

What I’d put on them for—> Simple runs, tempo runs, regular state runs, lengthy runs (flat or hilly).  I like that I can use one shoe for thus many several types of runs.  I really feel like these can adapt to so many alternative paces.

What I’d not put on them for—> Personally, I solely need to race within the Vaporflys, so I wouldn’t race within the SUPERBLAST.  I’d not put on them on the paths as a result of there isn’t quite a lot of traction on them, and the stack peak is excessive, so I’d most likely twist my ankle simply with these on trails.  I additionally received’t be utilizing them for brief/pace intervals.  Slick days additionally received’t be nice with these.

I’ve but to discover a con in these, and should you do, don’t inform me as a result of I wish to proceed to consider they’ve perfected this shoe.  I’m kidding; you’ll be able to inform me.

Off to strive the METASPEED;)

PS if my critiques appear very constructive, it’s as a result of I don’t evaluation the issues/sneakers and so on., that I don’t like… I evaluation the issues I discover that I do love.

Who has an Asics pair that they love? Anybody strive the Superblast but?  What are your ideas?

What number of miles do you get on a pair of sneakers often?  How do you observe them?

Are you able to eat pb or something with fats earlier than a run?  Is your abdomen choosy earlier than a run?

Inform me one thing attention-grabbing you will have seen on a run lately?
