NEW SHOES

Everyone loves em... if you haven't been in to check them out then you're missing out.

The fall releases of your favorite shoes are out and the updates are incredible.

Nike released a new shoe called the Odyssey that I am particularly excited about. New Balance, Asics, Brooks, and Saucony all have iterations of their go-to's out or coming out in a few weeks. Asics has dropped a NYC Marathon specific colorway of the Nimbus which looks awesome on foot.

What I am saying is... now is the time to get your Fall/Winter shoes while the getting is good.

I was skeptical of the Odyssey at first until I put it on. It has quickly become one of my favorite running shoes, of all time! Rivaled only by the Nike Vitesse of '06. That is unless New Balance decides to come out with a current, performance edition of the 574.

But back to the Odyssey...

It has entered the running world as a high cushion stability shoe to fill a missing link in Nike's line. It has 2 Zoom air units in the midsole and a rib cage type support that runs from the heel almost to the toe. The length of the supports creates a very stable and smooth ride that makes for an enjoyable run. The upper of the shoe Nike's new flymesh that has been attached to the rest of Nikes line and like the rest has fit really well.

This also means a lot of last year's shoes have just gone on sale... be sure to stop in soon!

Drink Some Water

In typical Nebraska fashion the cool crisp air of spring has been replaced by the blazing heat and humidity of summer in what seems like a day. As the heat continues to rise hydration become a very important issue for runners. If you're not properly hydrated not only does your performance suffer but it could also lead to more dangerous conditions. At Peak Performance we want to see everyone having fun in the sun, and with a few tips you can beat the heat.

1. Make sure you are staying hydrated throughout the day. We literally run on water and most people aren't getting enough water throughout the day and that can lead to issues during your run. Checking your urine pre-run is an easy way to see if you're hydrated. If your urine is the color of iced tea you should drink more, if it’s the color of lemonade or clearer you're good to go.

2. Electrolytes, such as those in sports drinks can help stave off dehydration. When your body is losing sodium though sweat, it’s essential to replace those lost to keep your performance up.

3. Post run, drink until you’re satisfied. Everyone is a little different and there really is no generic amount of water set for everyone.   

Following these simple steps will keep you going through the heat of summer.

Stay thirsty my friends.
