Love, awe, and SHOCK!

Yesterday was a glorious day for running, I nearly put it off because today was forecast to be a bit sunnier, but I'm so glad I went. I put on my magic shoes and off we trotted. I was going for a bit further that last week, 8K.... wasn't sure if I was up for it, but not only was I up for it, I sprinted the last KM - under 7 mins at the end of a run like that! Totally shocked, total time 1 hour 3 mins, 2 mins more than last weeks 7.4K. I can't believe I did that! LOVE those shoes!

Sprinting the last km?! I think I need a pair of these magic shoes!! Amazing!

Well, you know, a sprint for me is nowhere near as fast as a gentle run for some here, but I'm chuffed!

You are doing amazingly CG!!!

Thanks Tea, I'm getting a PB of some sort every time I go out, I must have really been struggling with those old shoes!

I'm speechless which, as you know, is very rare for me!!!

Brooks Adrenaline, there's a pic here somewhere. I can only assume the others weren't really right for me...

So brilliant! I've been back through your posts to see what the shoes are! (I'm not a weird stalky shoe fetish type honest) What are they? Have they got any support in them? Already thinking about my next pair....

Wow! Those PB's are coming thick and fast. Maybe it's the magic feet in the magic shoes that should take a bit of credit too ;) Sounds like a great run :)

Crumbs Curly, you're really flying at the moment! I'm sure the shoes have a bit to do with it, but it's mostly down to your own hard work and determination. You're on a role m'dear. It'll soon be time to revisit 'that' Parkrun venue and show 'em who's boss!!! Go Curly!!

Whoooo whoooo! Marvellous stuff! Well done you and your new shooooz!!!

Super fast curly in her magic running shoes. Go girl, go. Well done you.

Great stuff Curly! No stopping you now

Blimey, 8k in new shoes. Great run Curly. Just think of the possibilities when you settle on the sock decision :)

Reply

Good point Slookie, yes what colour did you go for in the end , Curly ? :-D xxx

Reply

Oh, still using my boring white ones from Aldi, they are so comfortable...but I will have a look at socks and laces next time I'm in SD.. scared to go in there in case I spend too much! The shoes needed a second mortgage!

Reply

Ha ha yep, I cant go into SD for just a look, I always end up buying something ! Far too tempting for me :-D xxx

Reply

Great run. Well done.

Reply

I love to hear how well you are doing!!!! Congratulations and as many have said its the magic feet inside the magic shoes that did it!!
