newyorkranger - I have been on the brink of buying the newtons 4 or 5 times, but I always back out at the last second. I will be switching into a trainer as I ramp my mileage up over the next two months, and may finally pull the trigger.
Got out for a double today
8 early afternoon easy
12 PM with a decent barefoot interval workout. I am really enjoying doing intervals barefoot on grass, I think it is helping me to become more efficient.
Yesterday: 2*5.5 Km. Inbetween watering my parents in law's plants.
5x 1000m in around 3:50mins or below
8pm tonight, locked my in my car, and had to have someone drop me off at home so I could grab the spare and then run back to the car, 8 miles away. It was a good way to resolve an annoying problem.
felt like a 6:50 pace but no watch so I dont know.
Got my pair of Saucony Mirage this morning. Looking forward to breaking them in - I'll let you know how it goes.
A note to UK users - ordered them from www.distance.co.uk yesterday at about 2:30pm - selected free delivery. Although it was quoted as going to take up to 3 working days, I received them by 9:30am this morning! Price was good and the delivery time was great... can't really give them feedback any other way than to plug them on here
4 miles this morning at 5:30 a.m. with temps in the 60's and little humidity. After I got going I wanted to keep running farther, but had to get back to walk the dog and get dressed for work.
9.25. Slow-ish in drizzly conditions. I'm always surprised at how many people won't exercise in the rain. Your sweat is already going to make you wet anyway, right?
Finally, a question: What do you do about chafing on the inner thighs?
You can get anti-chafe products such as the ones at the top of this page. I've used BodyGlide to stop my nipples from chafing...
I've found Body Glide works great.
10mi at 90% effort this morning. Thank goodness for 45% humidity, finally.
7 yesterday mostly barefoot on grass.
My body is feeling a little f*cked up, and I have a 5k saturday, so it may be a challenging race.
Run more, loose weight -> no more chafing on the inner thighs: Profit
Sorry couldn't resist.
Did a pyramide yesterday:
1000m - 2000m - 3000m - 2000m - 1000m all in 4:08mins / km pace with around 3:30mins pause
