Treadmill and Hoka One One

Took the Hokas indoors today.   Logged 12K  at a mostly 5:30 pace on my meal break.  Added the Metatarsal supports and the shoe worked fine.  The soft ride made the jarring treadmill a wee bit more bearable.

Track the HR again ,  high 120's to low 130's ... a gradual increase.  There was bad data in the beginning and the last little bit was a 900m running cool down followed by a 400m walk then a few minutes of sitting.

Friday Long Run

 It was a funny week for running.   Finishing mids Monday and not going back to work until Saturday seemed like a forever amount of time to fit running in but it didn't quite work out that way but I did manage to squeeze a long one in late Friday afternoon.   Wanted to do a 100% road workout so I headed down the second and did a loop of Durham logging 23.6 km.    really put the Hokas to the test.  Most shoes I wear I add a metatarsal support.   The only shoe I get away without adding the extra support is my Brooks Cascadia's.       I am going to try out the Hokas with the added support today on my lunch run .   If all goes well the Hokas will be my choice of shoe for next weekend 12 hour run at Springbank.

Hooka One One

Took the new Hooka One Ones out in the Rain this afternoon.  Was going to go longer but I have heard stories about these shoes and decided to cut it short planning on going longer tomorrow!  The shoes force a mid foot strike the every so subtlety throw you to your toe.   Not too much bounce and it didn't feel like an increased effort.  Like the downhills ,  sure took the work out of the  quads!  Although I trucked along at a avg 6:00 pace when I picked it up to a 5:30 pace the feel was similar to going much faster ,  rather pleasant.   Felt a wee bit tight in the right toe box but its probably just breaking them in and getting use to tying them.  

Monday Run 2

Rest day Tuesday ...unplanned just too busy with other things!

5K looping on my trail on Monday!  

Just got some Hooka's for the Raod / Track.   Going to burn em in the afternoon.

Lazy Ass Run

Left it too late again this morning but there was no magic so I it cut it short logging a 5ker.   Once the heart rate monitor started picking up the signal properly I never got it above 120 BPM.
