..Raina seems to like this shoe a lot and I wouldn't mind a lighter shoe (as long as the forefoot is well padded).
Some good runs this week. Today I ran in my Frees for the first time in a while and also used my calf sleeves. As an experiment I stopped wearing both of them after Eugune (April 29th) ...guess what? I teeny bit of AT lurking. Yup..thought so.
Back to wearing sleeves and doing shorter runs in the Frees! Not exactly rigorous science but good enough for me.
Thursdays run was great..as was today's (Saturday) ....I went by the Gamble house garden and looked at the flowers....all looking great! They also have a really nice drinking fountain there with cold clean water so I always like to stop....slurp slurp 8)
The middle miles from 2 to 7 were all pretty similar efficiency (close to 9mm = 125bpm) with very little fade. This run was done later in the day than usual for me so the temps were higher 70F or so and bright sun...good practice for the Ragnar.
Tomorrow a longer (12-14) , hilly run and even warmer. Running with my old running cohort, Jeff. He's way way faster than me but doesn't mind running more slowly.
Inching up to 40 miles/week average......curious if I can sustain. About 6 weeks before the Ragnar I'll start working on pushing up the LT. No volunteers for calibration runs yet but I'll be doing one every 3-4 weeks and hope to be able to measure the change.
