Mixing it up

Adidas Super Nova Gortex Trail shoes Saturday on the snowy back roads and tractor trails of West Grey.  On Sunday it was the Hokas on the Track at the Owen Sound Y.  Today it was the Mizuno Wave Elixers on the Treadmill.   Didn't notice much of a transition jumping between my Hokas and the Trail Shoes but holly smoked the Mizuno's on the treadmill were weird!!!   Felt more like slippers then running shoes.  I though the treadmill had a negative incline yet it was flat.  My left knee tweaked the first couple of dozen steps and my right foot metatarsal was a grinding away even with the supports.   I am a BIG FAN of the Hokas.    I did 30K on a hard track and the feet felt great/    It will be interesting if I feel the same way as I up the weekly distance!  

Logged 7K at a mostly 5:27 pace on this evenings meal break.

Runs with elastics!

Back Running Track at the Y in Owen Sound today.   Used the usual 6 elastics and iPad to keep track of laps.   Move the elastics from  left wrist to right rist when all 6 were gone I tapped the iPad for a K.     Goal today was 30K in 3 hours and thats exactly what I did.   Had two bottles of water ,   2 s caps and no calories what so ever.  Towards the end of the run I was brearthing a bit heavier and was a little warmer as I  was running low on Gycogen starting to burn more body mass!    Netx week the goal is 40K in 4 hours but I will definetly be doing calories and more S Caps and water.

First Winter Run

I have avoided taking it outside in the cold but the inevetable happend today.  Dawned my tights ,  thermal gear,  shell and gortex shoes and braved the winter world.   Its sucked as is usual ...cold at first,  then colder when the I started to sweat then too hot followed by cold hands and then to top off the joy it was the cold arms.   True joy came when I grabbed a Heniken and jumped into the Hot Tub its almost as good as the Hammock with Tunes in the Man Cave in the Forest.    Logged 10.3 Ks all together ...enough for my first taste of Winter glad to have that one behind me now!
