Well, today is relatively cool, I guess (only 84) so I went out to the trail and ran 3 miles and some change. The route I chose was an out-and-back where the last half mile is a pretty steep uphill grade and usually I just give up and walk after a block or so because I hate hills, but today I kept running up the whole darn thing. I’m actually pretty proud that I gutted it out all the way. I am tough!
When I got back I took a completely cold shower and stretched in there while I waited to cool down. Stretching in the shower is pretty great. I didn’t stretch before running again and it was fine. I think that will work okay, provided my calves aren’t sore before the run.
I think I’ve got my shoes worked out; no blisters or feet falling asleep problems today. I wound up taking the Superfeet insoles out and putting the original ones back in. We’ll see how my feet feel tomorrow. I really do enjoy the squishy ride of these new shoes; it’s so comfy.
