The new running shoes arrived today - Saucony Trigon-5 Ride. They don't make this shoe anymore, I believe the new model is just called the Ride, but I haven't been able to find a pair to check out anywhere. I know the T-5 Ride is a great shoe for me so I went ahead and ordered two pair. (only $49.99 each down from the original $89 price tag. First the free Roctane and now this - it's almost like I have a sponsor!)
I took a pair out for a spin this afternoon on my standard 5-miler. I felt much better today than on Sunday. Unfortunately I didn't make it to the gym yesterday as the legs were still way to sore to do a heckuva lot. Actually there's still some residual soreness today - three days after the leg lifting session. I knew it was way too long - I really need to build the strength back up.
I'm hoping to get out for a run tomorrow morning before heading out to see the CMT. I need to have those hamstrings checked out to see if I'm making any progress there. (If only I could get a discount on that!)
Mon, 2/9: Off
Tue, 2/10: 5-miles @ 6:45 (felt easier than Sunday's run, but definitely not 100% back)
