Milestones and 4 miles of intervals

This was the second-to-last hard workout of my training plan: 8x400m intervals. (Friday calls for 5 miles fast, which is a different kind of hard.) I finished in 48 minutes and fought with my shoes the whole time. I have a new pair waiting for me– same model, shiny and new in its box– but for some reason I’ve been putting off swapping them out, despite my legs calling out for fresh shoes. This pair has 137 miles on it, and the midfoot is worn down to the flat and the cushion is gone– the downside of being a heavier runner is that I go through shoes very quickly…

After my run today, Nike+ informed me that I’d ticked over to purple level, 2500km/1555 miles. It’s been an interesting few years since I started up running, hasn’t it? I guess someone who runs a lot of miles would reach that milestone more quickly, but I’m still happy with my progress. It’ll be a while until I reach the next level, but I’ll keep going.
