8.2 miles tonight.
How many miles did you run today? - Page 845
Back to it after about a week off. 6.2 on closed road, out-and-back. About 1000' of climbing. Everything felt good but the shoes. In fact, the sides of the balls of my feet hurt as soon as I put the Brooks on, and they didn't feel any better as the run progressed. I thought that one having blistered and sloughed off some of the callous would've helped as the part of my left foot that was rubbing too much would no longer be there; no such luck. Now there's a blister on the same part of my right foot.
Amazingly, the place where I bought the shoes has a 60 day return policy, which encompasses shoes worn on the road. So I took them back shortly after my run. The shop first suggested that I try different socks, but I wasn't really in the mood for that since this hasn't happened to me with any other running shoes I've had. So I returned them and went with some impressively ugly Asics Nimbus 18s in a 13W. I'll try them out tomorrow. For some reason I really like garish and ugly shoes if I'm just using them for running.
Got 5 in around sunset this evening. Amazingly good weather.
