Good old ebay! 2 years ago I bid on several pairs of reeboks! and won 4 pairs all under £20 each, I was a bit surprised.
Move on a year or so and enter more regular running, a gait analysis, shoes that were never as comfy as my old reeboks, I’m down to 2 pairs, one for work in navy and one to run in dirty white. Both wearing out, I’ve been alternating between my lovely expensive shoes and scruffy old reeboks. A pattern is emerging, I run faster and ache less in reeboks. So of course I bought some Asics because that’s what my sister ran in and I’ve had them before (no logic to that at all)
Browsing ebay I bid on a pair and got home from work yesterday to find them here. They look hardly used and today is run day 😀
We woke at 6.30 and faffed around a while playing with the kitten and drinking tea.
8.30 sees us at the park, fresh and green with plenty of shadow and not many people. Today we agreed to do anything we wanted, so we set off easy and a glance at my watch showed we were faster than expected,
Willow ran a couple of kilometres, I carried on for 3k and so enjoyed running around the park, I could feel i was putting more effort in but could still just about sing along to The greatest showman songs that came through my ear buds.
Splits, 7.42, 8.36 and 8.40. and it felt great, time for home, a glass of water cup of tea and stretch.
A tip! Don’t put sun cream on your face if you are going to run and sweat, oh that stings 😂
Happy run day or happy rest day
