My run this evening on the Harpeth River Greenway felt really, really good. Last night I was pretty tired, especially since it came after spending an hour aqua jogging in the pool. Tonight my legs felt fresh, and I had to fight to keep from running too fast. This was the second run from week one of my “Return to Running,” which includes:
- 3 to 5-minute walking warmup
- 4 x 4-minute run / 2-minute walk
- 3 to 5+ minute walking cooldown
I got in 16 minutes of running and 25 minutes of walking for a total of 3.75-miles completed. Tonight also marked my first run in the new Adidas Energy Boost shoes. In an earlier post regarding my planned training changes for 2013, I mentioned that I wanted to run in more cushioned shoes for runs 10 miles or greater. After doing a lot of research, I settled on the Energy Boost. Today I stopped by our local Fleet Feet, and they happened to have my size in stock. The sales guy said that they are selling so fast that they don’t even have any on display in the store.
Anyway, even though this run was MUCH shorter than 10 miles, I decided to have a go in the new shoes. They felt fantastic. Much different than my Kinvara, but still really, really great. I’ll write a full review once I get a few more runs under my belt.
