…it's like running on on two clouds
…it's like support from feather pillows
That's so much better than my last pair of shoes. After 500+ miles or so, the "spring" in the soles just disappears. It's like running on two slabs of cardboard. And after all the sweat that ran down into them (I'm a VERY "gifted" sweat-er), and after the incredible "funk" that started rising from them (a combo of B.O. & mildew), they had become a read bio-hazard. I had resorted to storing them outside. When the new shoes came home, the old ones ended up in the trash.
Regardless, I'm running on new shoes again…mmmm….like butter.
Did 9 tough miles today:
- 3 miles to warm up (shooting for 8:00/mile)
- 5 miles as a "Lactate Threshold Run" (targeting 6:30/mile)
- 1 mile to cool down (back to 8:00/mile)
