I broke in my purple Brooks PureFlows today. I've had them for a while, purchased right after I bought my first pair(that I wear on most my runs), but I have just walked in them and not run until today. Oh and my new blue Pro Compression socks! I'm not ashamed to admit that I got them in baby blue because they will work for my Cinderella outfit for the Princess! LOL...yep, already planning that costume over 9 months out!
Before I ramble off into a shoe post, I'll stop!
It was drizzly and misty this morning, but a nice temperature and I ran at a comfortable pace for my end-of-the-week run. I was in my head a bit this morning though, couldn't quite relax and just let go of all my thoughts. I love getting into that near meditative feeling while running, but it didn't really ever arrive this morning. I was too busy trying to slow myself down, it was supposed to be an "easy" run, after all. 4 miles in 43:47.
Oh, also, I went over my calendar and tried to see if I could find a race for every month. I have quite a few already, August and September will be the hardest to get one in, I think. I have a couple friends that are thinking of doing the Princess as well and I'm excited to share the experience with them! One of them lives about 4 hours from me, so we are thinking of meeting half way for a training run at some point over the summer and maybe even a race!
That's all I got! Hope everyone had a nice week/weekend!
How about you? Questions I have for you...
What kind of shoes do you wear? Any suggestions for me on the minimalist front?
Do you ever just chatter too much in your head when running? Do you like to think a lot or do you like to zone out/meditate when running?
Have you ever trained for a big race with a friend or friends?
