...finally, I've treated myself to that new pair I promised myself I'd get once I'd graduated.
I've been discussing the matter of which shoes with my legs (at length)...we couldn't decide how much we wanted/needed roads in our life and finally took the plunge with a very jazzy, so called, road to trail pair. (Saucony Peregrines....they've got orange laces...look!!)
We couldn't wait to get out in the woods with them this morning - it was a bloomin' chilly 2 degrees & foggy, but we (my legs & me) had a great start to the day. Took a gentle 26 minute run/walk (at 2:1 for interested peeps)...I concentrated on slowing things down, as I've been competing with myself way too much this last week. Had a route in mind & just trotted off ...don't know exactly how far I ran coz I guess weather conditions were just tooo difficult for runkeeper to keep track - it was probably good for me not to know, for a change!!
Back to the shoes...we love them...They're certainly more grippy and supportive than our starter road shoes & we're very happy with our choice. BTW...Did you notice the orange laces...??
Wishing you all great weekend runs!
Ps...they're beautifully muddy now, but the laces are still orange
