First run in new shoes

So excited to do this so couldn’t wait until 8:30pm when I usually (that sounds good!) run because of the recent heat. It was 25c and I now know it’s too hot for me! I started off far too quickly (will I ever learn?!) and the first km was fab the shoes felt very smooth and light. Soon after this the shoes felt too tight and I got pins and needles so I loosened them a bit. By this time I was very hot and had a hill to tackle which I walked up. Then nearing the end I entered a field and thought I could get out down the bottom but no so had to retrace steps. Eventually got home. Memo to self slow and steady!

Apart from being done up a little tightly, how were the shoes?

Very comfy but I must try and set off much slower. Also wore new sunglasses which made me go faster?!!

Yeah it’s because your eyeballs can’t sense the forward motion so your brain makes your legs work harder.

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
