This week was probably one of the best weeks yet! slight pain during the runs and I was able to complete all the workouts. With weather like this I am happy that the runs have been flowing well.

  • Monday (unplanned run) – 4.13km at 5.36min/km. I was suppose to take the date off but a friend showed up at my house for a run so I just could not resist.
  • Tuesday – 5.16km at a 4.55min/km pace
  • Thursday – 8.03km at a 5.02min per km
  • Saturday – interval workout
    • 1.6×2 at a 4.21 + 4.37 min/km
    • 1.2×2 at a 4.27 + 4.30 min/km
    • 0.8×2 at a 4.27 + 4.26 min/km
    • 0.4×1 at a 4.23 min/km
  • Sunday – Shakeout run 7.01km at a 5.42min/km

I definitely have been running better and I do want to try pacing my runs better. Right now my fast run is Tuesday, long run is Thursday and sprint work is Saturday with an easy run Sunday. I think I can definitely pull the pace back on my long run and hit a slightly higher pace on the easy runs. I do not want to get to carried away with the paces to try to avoid over working the legs to much.

SADLY! I am going to have to take out 2 shoes from my rotation. The Clifton 6 and the adidas pureboost have been worn out and I had to replace them with some new gear. I did decide to not get the Clifton again because they just do not have the lifespan to be used as trainers so I went and ordered some new puppies from Asics the Keyano 26. I also really wanted to try them out because I thought it might be a good idea to get a trainer with more support. To help with the speed work I have gone and picked a company I have never run with yet. That company is Reebok with the forever floatride energy 2. Very excited to try these out based on the reviews I have seen they are good for under pronators and they are supposedly very under rated for their price. I realized based on the shoes I have been using that I supinate alot so the floatrides are suppose to help support that. I will give you guys an update once I go on a few runs with them.

As always thanks for listening and I hope that everyone is having amazing runs.

What shoes do you guys train in? I’d love to hear about it.

Stay happy, Stay healthy, Keep breathing.
