Find Your Strong: Saucony Virrata

I’m finally back in my running/workout groove and it feels so good. I am getting out with Edith in the BOB at least three times per week for a run and on the other days we get out for at least a walk. I am also back to strength training regularly and as of today I am back in the yoga mode.

One of the greatest things about getting back to regular workouts is trying out new fitness gear. Lately, I have been trying out the Saucony Virrata’s which are really amazing and super light. These shoes have a 0mm offset so they are a whole new experience for me and I am really enjoying them. I have been on a number of walks in them and some very short runs and have been wearing them for strength training at home.

Description from the Saucony Website: Stripped down to strong. The Virrata is our lightest and most flexible training shoe and allows your foot to move naturally. We removed everything that isn’t helping your run improve. What remains is a feather-light, ultra flexible shoe with advanced cushioning that promotes a powerful stride and allows your foot to move the way it was meant to. Built on a 0mm offset, this shoe lets your feet do the work while providing plenty of protection from the road. The breathable mesh upper makes the shoe incredible lightweight and quick-drying to run in wet weather conditions. Weight: 6.0oz.

I love how light weight these shoes are and am looking forward to working on upping my mileage in them overtime but for now I am slowly transitioning into them. Oh and did I mention that they are pretty nice to look at as well? I love that they are black with florescent highlights. They are flashy without being over the top.
