Or at least they made this run. A new pair of Nike running shoes and the pains are reduced by an order of magnitude. Not horribly expensive (less than £50) but worth every penny if this is the result.
Very cold this morning, in the shop on Wednesday I scoffed at a pair of running gloves but the warm up walk this morning made me wonder if I'd been a little too smug. As the runs started and the blood began to pump the cold vanished and the pace felt good. I'll need to check if it was any faster but it felt like I was flying along.
I realise that one run doesn't really prove anything but I so hope that the shoes have done the job they appear to have done. I can stand some pain but elves stabbing me in the shins with every step is hard work.
I guess I'll see on Monday, have a good weekend everyone.
P.S - Checked the figures, my pace is up by 30 secs/km from Wednesday and a PB since I started the program, rock and roll
