It was a beautiful day in Toronto today with weather with as it came back to 1 degrees Celsius. I finally went out and did my first “long run” of the winter. I ran 11.24km at a 6.14min/km pace in my Hoka Clifton 6 and I was quite happy with the cushioning. Although I did not experience the rocking effect that I was told about. I am assuming that I would have to adjust my running style to a heel strike to fully experience the effects. I did come to realize that I have about a month and a half before I will start tapering down. I might even have to skip the tapering because I started training so late. HOPEFULLY everything works out. Lets see. Thanks for reading I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend and their runs.
