So I just took it easy and worked on my form in the Altra Instincts.
Today, I didn’t have any problems with the socks and the shoes felt really great the whole way, so I have over 15 miles in the Altra Instinct’s and no problems from them. I just have a sneaking suspicion that I am going to like these shoes a lot, but don’t want to get my hopes up to high this soon after getting them.
However, last night I was playing with my oldest grandson and he lifted my right foot up to about his chest level. Then when I relaxed it a little he suddenly dropped it and my heal bounced off the floor. Which definitely got my attention – no real damage, but it seems to have re-aggravated some tendonitis in the area. Nothing serious but just enough to be a pain.
The run was just slow and I put one foot in front of the other type of run. I do like that out here there are very wide sidewalks and that fighting traffic is not nearly as big an issue. I will get some pictures of what I mean on tomorrow’s run.
Wow – only need 3.4 to get 50 for the week and I am scheduled to do a 10 miler tomorrow, so it will be interesting, who knows if I feel great, I might just do 6.0 on Sunday, that would be something to write home about and then have a cut-back week next week.
