8,27 km for today, in new shoes! 🙂
The Saucony Kinvara really feels very light and comfy. I guess, I found my shoe for the upcoming marathon-relay at the end of june.
Having been depressed yesterday because of the devastating results of the medical-checkup (devastating for my ego, that is), I was glad to be able to run so well in a lightweight shoe. I wouldn’t have been able to do this a few years ago, so there has been some considerable improvement in my stride.
Having not slept too well the night before, I wasn’t out as early as planned and the heat is still up. But it felt a lot cooler in the shade, and I saw some puddles on the road, so there must have been some rain during the night. There is a kindergarten in the woods with a well close by, where I could pump some water to soak my cap again. That’s the only way to survive in the heat.
The woods were a lot cooler than the previous days. Unfortunately, there weren’t many woods on my route today as I wanted to have a mostly flat course and that’s the only one around here, unless I run on the track or the treadmill.
On my way back, I came across a site where they knocked down a house a few years ago and still didn’t build anything on it. Nature’s taking it back in the middle of the town. That’s cool.
As I’m writing this blog, there’s a thunderstorm outside. So I hope that I can do my speed-workout on a cooler morning tomorrow.
See you tomorrow!
